I’m so glad I started eating breakfast again. I’m much happier, calmer, and patient in the mornings now. Intermittent fasting be damned.
This morning I scrambled up three eggs in pork grease and topped them with Primavera salsa and sliced avocado. I also nuked some frozen broccoli to eat with it.
At around 10:00 a.m., my stomach started rumbling so I snacked on Fitbomb’s fabulous homemade jerky. It may be a while before I attempt intermittent fasting again.
It’s so nice visiting my sister. I know I’m sounding like a broken record but I feel so damned spoiled here. I just sit on my ass while my brother-in-law entertains my restless kids and my sister cooks me fabulous food.
For lunch, I chose to eat another helping of meatballs and slow-cooked broccoli.
I know this is the third time I’ve eaten them in 24 hours but they’re damn good.
Shortly after lunch, my sister hosted a small get-together at her home and she made a plethora of carb-y goodness (e.g. homemade char siu baos, sausage rolls, and cinnamon rolls). She also made sure to make a Paleo-friendly slow-cooked broccoli, ham, and cheddar frittata and a beautiful salad. Guess what I had two helpings of?
Dinner was something my sister happened to have ready in her freezer: braised short ribs with cavolo nero and carrots. She served it with roasted kabocha squash (my favorite winter squash in the whole wide world) and more yummy salad.
Life is good.
We’re heading over to the in-laws this evening to celebrate Turkey Day. While the younger rugrat napped, I quickly threw together some garlic caulilflower “mashed potatoes”…
…and roasted broccoli and bacon.
There will be a plethora of meats (albeit all factory farm-raised) and now I know I’ll have some Paleo-approved veggies to go with the tasty animal parts.
Happy Turkey Day!
