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….
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
