Here’s the grub I packed for my first night back at work:

I ate a small container of leftover Bo Kho and garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes for lunch…

…a coconut Paleo Kit for snack…

…and leftover pancetta-spinach frittata with a small salad as my last meal before going home.

When I got home, I liberally seasoned a whole chicken inside…

…and out…

…with Fox Point seasoning, salt, and pepper.

I also roughly chopped up 3 carrots, 2 onions, a stalk of celery and tossed the veggies with salt, pepper, and Fox Point seasoning. I dumped the uncooked vegetables in the bottom of the slow cooker liner and placed the chicken (breast-side down) on top of them. I splashed on a little Red Boat fish sauce and I stored the chicken in the fridge.  Before going to bed, I gave my mom instructions to pop everything into the slow cooker (set on low) at 1:30 p.m. so it would be fully cooked by 6:00 p.m. (This is an even easier version of the slow cooker roast chicken recipe with gravy.)

After I woke up in the evening, I took the chicken and veggies out of the slow cooker and prepared the side dishes.

I roasted some broccoli in the oven (tossed with melted coconut oil, salt, and pepper)…

…made some caulifllower fried rice with R & K’s fantastic homemade pancetta, eggs, onions, and chives…

…and sautéed baby chard with minced garlic.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, I did a few burpees while I waited for my food pics to upload. Coach Trish instituted a 30-day burpee challenge for the month of June so I’m fitting them in whenever I can. I actually kind of like them – but maybe it’s cause I only had to do two today. 

I was really tempted to pick up another cup of Phil’z Coffee but I abstained. I’m gonna be a grumpy motherfucker at work tonight.
