For those of you new to the blog, I post my Paleo eats from midnight to midnight on the nights I work graveyard shift. That way, you see the meals I pack for work and the dinner I make for the family before I zoom off to the hospital in the evening. Very thoughtful of me, huh?
My first meal of the night was a bowl of garbage soup filled with diced sous vide chicken breast.
Since this lunch was lacking in fat, I also ate a container of coconut flakes.
An hour before my shift ended, I heated up some leftover slow cooker roast chicken, winter squash puree, nuked sugar snap peas, and sautéed mushrooms.
After work, I took the boys to school and returned home for some shuteye.
The kids and my mom weren’t too keen on the idea of lamb stew, so I fried up some mini pork and grass fed beef burgers…
…and stir-fried a batch of emergency protein with ground pork, ground beef, Turkish seasoning, minced garlic, and broccoli slaw.
They’re so damn picky!
For my veggie sides, I roasted some curried cauliflower…
…and sautéed some spinach with minced garlic in butter.
Here’s my dinner plate:
After dinner, I performed a quick WOD (workout 17 from Sarah Fragoso’s Everyday Paleo) in our home gym and ate a post workout snack (a handful of chestnuts and a hard-boiled egg).
Then, it was off to work again!
