The first day after getting off my week of nightshifts is kind of rough. There’s ALWAYS some sleep debt that lingers which makes me a wee more snippy than usual. That being said, after going Paleo for over a year, my recovery from graveyard shifts is quicker and less painful. Plus, my kids have told me that I’m a nicer mommy and that’s all that matters.
Enough blathering. Let’s get to my chow for today…
At breakfast, I was pressed for time so I chopped up some odds and ends and put them on a small plate: sliced sous vide chicken breast, chopped tomatoes, leftover roasted portobello mushrooms, and Aubergine dip.
For lunch, we met my parents at Jack’s Prime for some burgers. I ordered a Big Jack (double cheese burger with bacon) with extra avocado but no bun, cheese, or sauce.
I felt peckish a few hours later so I snacked on a handful of macadamia nuts, some SeaSnax seaweed, and a few Bing cherries. (BTW – the SeaSnax are Whole30-approved AND you can get free shipping if you use the code “w9fs”.)
For the veggie sides, I broiled sliced eggplant brushed with virgin red palm oil…
…and finished with balsamic vinegar and chopped basil…
…and sauteed heirloom Italian broccoli with minced garlic, Red Boat fish sauce, and balsamic vinegar.
Here’s my dinner:
Time for sleep!1
