Today is my groovy super-chef big sister’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Fiona!

(Note: The picture above was taken on Fiona’s third birthday. She’s no longer this short – but she’s shorter than me! HA!)

I know I say this every night, but this post REALLY has to be brief ‘cause Fitbomb and I have a ridiculous amount of work to get done before we fly out to Austin tomorrow morning. I’m really excited to attend and present at PaleoFX, but we have to get everything squared away for the Double-Os before we leave. Man, I’m going to miss ’em like the dickens.

Enough blathering, here are my eats for the day:

For this morning’s breakfast, I gobbled up a couple of leftover Pizza Egg Muffins before I dashed off to the women’s class at CrossFit Palo Alto, where we were treated to Jackie. 

After all that rowing and barbell-thrusting and pull-upping (is that a word?), I was HONGRY. For my post-workout meal, I inhaled a couple of pressure-cooked eggs and a nuked yam.

Maybe I’ll exercise more just so I can eat more yams. Me likey.

At lunchtime, I fried up a chicken bratwurst and served it on top of leftover cauliflower, carrot, and parsnip puree, and broiled asparagus.

I already have some food prepared to feed my parents and the Double-Os for this coming week, but just to make sure they don’t starve in my absence, I threw a few pastured pork chops seasoned with Magic Mushroom Powder (recipe will be in my upcoming iPad app) into the Sous Vide Supreme.

After an afternoon spent packing, doing laundry, and squeezing in last minute hugs with the boys, I rushed dinner to the table. I made a batch of emergency protein with grass fed ground beef, Adobo seasoning, and diced onions…

…and sauteed mushrooms and broccolini in the dirty pan.

Here’s my dinner plate:

My blogging may be sporadic the next few days while I’m in Austin – I have a feeling I’ll be too tired to write at the end of the night. But if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll be treated to a steady stream of my nonsense as I tweet up a storm during the conference.

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
