Today I was so tempted to order take-out for all my meals. Yes, I’ll readily admit that I feel like this A LOT. I definitely enjoy eating more than cooking!

Despite my laziness, I ended up cooking my meals today because:  

  1. We’ll be eating out a lot in Kauai.
  2. The meals we eat in paradise won’t be very Paleo-compliant.
  3. I picked up a new box of veggies yesterday from Mariquita Farm and I gotta cook ‘em up before we leave.


Without further delay, here’s what I chowed on today…

For breakfast, I made myself a frittata with two eggs, nuked frozen spinach, a dollop of full-fat Greek yogurt, Sunny Paris seasoning, and S & P…

…that I topped with ½ an avocado and Primavera salsa.

Then, I went to the women’s class at CrossFit Palo Alto and got my butt kicked. However, I was smiling throughout the class because it’s a blast and Coach Trish was sporting a deadlift girl T-shirt.

When I got home, I ate a cold chunk of leftover sous vide cowboy steak along with a handful of chestnuts.

For lunch, I nuked a leftover sausage and spinach stuffed Portobello mushroom and sautéed some baby chard with coconut aminos, Red Boat fish sauce, salt, and pepper.

As an afternoon snack, I finished off the rest of the sous vide cowboy steak and ate a couple tablespoons of coconut butter. Crazy combo but it totally hit the spot.

At dinnertime, I roasted curried cauliflower and carrots

…and stir-fried a batch of emergency protein (grass fed ground beef, diced spring onions, minced garlic, Arizona Dreaming seasoning, salt, and pepper).

Here’s my dinner plate:

I topped the beef with Primavera salsa (a.k.a. magic sauce) and avocado sprinkled with Aleppo pepper finishing salt.

Gotta catch some zzzz’s so I won’t fall asleep on the massage table tomorrow morning. I’m so looking forward to my spa morning with Fit Daffy, R, and HA. We’re going to RTFO and I know I’m gonna set a new PR!
