Last night of work for the week! And my flip-day (the tortuous Wednesday when I switch from being a vampire to full-time mommy). I guess I gotta take the good with the bad…

Because I nursed a thermos of Philtered Soul with heavy cream at the beginning of my shift, I wasn’t hungry for a few hours. At around 2:00 a.m., I ate a grass fed Paleo Kit, a small container of roasted bell peppers, and 1/4 cup of homemade guacamole. This mishmash of snacks kept me full until I left work.

At home, I chilled with my boys and chowed on a small bowl of emergency protein over sauteed spinach and Asian cauliflower fried rice.

I went to bed for a few hours with the intent that I’d get enough rest to perk me up, but not so much that I wouldn’t be able to sleep in the evening. Trust me, it’s a slippery slope.

When I finally dragged myself out of bed in the early afternoon, I went with the kids to get a treat at Fraiche yogurt. I had my usual whole fat Greek yogurt topped with strawberries and toasted coconut and the boys ate the frozen stuff. (Yep, we occasionally eat dairy and we follow these guidelines.)

We drove across town to pick up my first drop-off of raw Jersey milk from the Real Food (Bay Area) CSA

…and my monthly meat bonanza from the Marin Sun Farms CSA. In addition to my regular order, I purchased 5 dozen eggs…

…a bunch of bones…

…skirt steaks, and ox tails. My little freezer in the garage is filled to the brim with meat and frozen Hawaiian Sun coconut milk. Life is good.

You know what made my day even better? The mailman delivered a stash of spicy Grass Fed Jerky Chews I ordered a few nights ago!


At dinner time, I was pooped so I roasted some portobello mushrooms the lazy way

…peeled and microwaved some summer squash spaghetti

…and reheated leftover slow cooker Thai yellow goat curry.

Here’s my dinner bowl:

After dinner, I practiced double-unders but my sleep deprivation made those 120 seconds VERY painful. I’m going to bed. Good night!

Finally, it’s my last night of work! Yippee! But since it’s my “flip day,” I’m too tired to write a lengthy post.

Here’s what I ate at work tonight:

The first meal I chowed on was a box of leftover chicken kebabs and stir-fried collard greens and bacon.

Then, I ate a small container of my hubby’s Paleo trail mix and half a stick of my co-worker’s homemade salami.

My co-worker is a chef trapped in a professional drug dealer’s body ‘cause he’s taken more whole animal butchery classes than anyone I know and can whip up a 10-course fancy-pants meal just like that. I’m not jealous or anything.

For my “dinner” at work, I ate a pan-fried chicken apple sausage with leftover broiled asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted curried cauliflower.

I bid adieu to my co-workers for the week and skipped to my car. Seriously. I’m that happy when I finish my workweek.

At home, I ate some roast turkey deli meat, macadamia nuts, and coconut flakes while I goofed off with the kids.  Afterwards, I took a quick cat nap for a few hours and then it was back to full-time mommy mode when I awoke.

While Little-O napped, Big-O helped me make a batch of “garbage soup.”

Since I was exhausted at dinnertime, I just ladled everyone a bowl of soup…

…and served it with some leftover rotisserie chicken.

This dinner was small compared with my other meals but that’s only because I’d been eating coconut flakes and macadamia nuts non-stop all afternoon.

Good night folks!
