Paleo Eats: 4/3/11

Today we were zipping around the outer reaches of the Bay Area but I was still able to eat pretty clean despite not cooking anything myself.

In the morning, I met up with Fit Daffy at the Mountain View Farmers to pick up two bunches of free asparagus, eggs, veggies, and fruit. I was really excited to see that my favorite strawberry stand, Kika’s, has set up shop again. Another stand I’ve been frequenting a lot lately is Borba Farms. They sell really tasty and beautiful organic produce. I know that sounds superficial but some organic produce is so damn ugly it’s unappetizing: muddy, wilted, bug-eaten. You know what I mean.

After I came home, the family and I piled into the car to meet some friends for brunch at Café Borrone (same owners as Station 1 Restaurant). My hubby and I each ordered a scramble with chard, green onions, and bacon…

…a fancy green salad to share…

…and chicken apple sausage.

Then, we took a short walk to the spice mecca, Penzeys, to restock my spice drawer.

My kids and I sniffed our way through the store…

…and I purchased a ton: Balti seasoning, Rogan Josh seasoning, Fox Point seasoning, Tukish seasoning, Sunny Paris seasoning, Tandoori seasoning, and Parisien Bonnes Herbes.

We also took a stroll over to the Menlo Park Farmers’ market

…and purchased some grass fed beef jerky from the Holding Ranch stand

…a dozen duck eggs…

…and more sweet potatoes.

The kids had a blast boogying to the musicians at the market.

We took our purchases home and then we were off to a kid’s birthday party in Walnut Creek. While we were there, I snacked on the beef jerky we just bought and some strawberries.

For dinner, we made a pitstop at Chipotle on our way home. Hubby and I both ordered salads with double portions of carnitas, hot and mild salsa, and a big dollop of guacamole.

For fast food, it wasn’t bad but as I’ve posted before, I do find the carnitas a bit salty.

Tomorrow, I promise I’ll cook something…

Day 19 of Whole30 Eats

Yay! It’s my hump day! That means I only have three more night shifts after this one. Wait a sec…that’s still a long string of nights to work. Sigh.

I wasn’t super hungry when I started work so I didn’t actually eat my “lunch” until 2:00 a.m. I nuked myself another box of leftover sous vide pork chops, garlic cauliflower mashed “potatoes,” roasted kabocha squash, and sautéed spinach.

I ate a snack at around 4:00 a.m. when I polished off macadamia nuts, coconut flakes, veggies, and Aubergine dip.

My last meal at work was a box of leftover beef stew, baked sweet potato, and nuked green beans at 7:00 a.m.

Sadly, this was my last box of leftover beef stew.

After I returned home we loaded everyone into the car for a trip to our local farmers’ market. I know I just got a CSA box yesterday but I needed some more fruit for the kids and we love getting free samples.

Plus, I bought some salmon and stocked up on a bunch of meat.

And we snagged some more free samples…

Then, it was back home to slumber.

When I woke up at 5:00 p.m., Fitbomb suprised me by making grass fed lamb burgers and roasted carrot “fries.” Dinner was so damn good.

Then, it was off to work again. Another big sigh.
