I’ve had a number of people that ask what I eat all day long, so am going to do a post every once in awhile with a full day of meals. I love how Nom Nom Paleo does this, it can be very helpful to see. Also planning to start doing some restaurant posts when I remember!
So here were my meals yesterday. I rarely snack anymore as I don’t often get hungry now that my blood sugar isn’t constantly sky rocketing and dropping. Now I am in control, not the food.
Michael usually makes breakfast, but he had an early meeting yesterday so I took over. He generally makes bacon and fried eggs, so when I cook I change it up and like to make scrambled eggs. I beat my eggs with a little heavy cream, then scramble them up in coconut oil with a bit of seasoned salt. I served with a delicious Aidell’s all natural chicken apple sausage that you can find at Costco. I just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds and then let it get a little crispy in the pan. I actually only ate half of this sausage, they are pretty big and I wasn’t that hungry. I also had a cup of dark roast coffee with a few Tbsp of heavy cream and a packet of Stevia.
I had another cup of coffee with heavy cream at work around 10am
Then for lunch, I brought in a chicken fajita salad that I put together from Sunday nights leftovers. Just salad mix on the bottom, added the warmed up chicken and peppers and topped with organic salsa and sour cream mixed together. Yummy!
Had no idea what I was going to make for dinner last night, but decided after examining freezer contents that I was in the mood for some salmon. Michael doesn’t eat salmon, but I keep mahi-mahi on hand to make for him when I have salmon fortunately. Pulled those out, defrosted, then yummied them up by brushing on coconut oil, adding salt, pepper, lemon, and a herb seasoning blend on both sides and grilling up on our indoor grill.
While those were cooking, I decided to make some “fauxtatoes” using a bag of cauliflower that needed to be used. I ran out of butter so I ended up using some goat cheese instead to make these creamy and they were delicious!! I also learned that I need a food processor – our blender just doesn’t work as well for this kind of thing. As soon as we have a bigger kitchen!
Threw some frozen haricots verts (French green beans) into a glass dish along with some olive oil, basalmic vinegar, salt and pepper, and microwaved for about 5 minutes to serve on the side as well.
We picked up some 80% cocoa dark chocolate at the Seattle Chocolate Festival a few weeks ago so I had a square of that for dessert while we watched “How I Met Your Mother” and that was the end of another Monday.
