Yep, I kinda went off the rails yesterday but today I jumped right back on the Paleo wagon.

After our decadent anniversary dinner at Saison the night before, I wasn’t really hungry when I woke up so I skipped breakfast. I met up with Fit Daffy at the Mountain View Farmers’ market and stocked up on protein, cherries, and cherry tomatoes.

When I got home, I was famished so I heated up leftovers for lunch. I ate some sous vide chicken breast seasoned with Fox Point seasoning, garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes, stir fried heirloom broccoli, and cherry tomatoes….

…and hubby ate similar sides accompanied with slow roasted pork shoulder and cauliflower fried rice.

After lunch, I met with R and HA to have my first crack at trail running up at Pearson-Arastradero Preserve. The run kicked my ass (hills! heat! horse manure!) but it was so much fun hanging with these two wickedly funny gals. Post-run, we shared the snacks I packed in my little cooler: microwaved sweet potato and sous vide chicken breast.

The good times continued at our house where we regrouped with our hubbies and kids and conducted a blind taste test of various brands of preservative-free frozen coconut milk.

As palate cleansers, I put out bowls of strawberries and Bing cherries.

Everyone took the taste test seriously and we all agreed that there was a clear winner….

…but like American Idol I’m gonna withhold the results until after the commercial break. Annoying, right? Don’t worry, I’ll post about the winner as soon as I get to my Saison write-up.

You’d think that we’d be full after ingesting all that fat, but you’d be wrong. 

For dinner, we all headed to The Counter where I ordered my usual beef burger in a bowl.

Fun times + great peeps + yummy nosh = AWESOME DAY
