Happy almost best day of the week! Aside from the weekend, I love Wednesday because it allows me to drool over everyone’s food. The only thing you won’t see documented this week on Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday, is the bacon that I burnt. You see, I was getting yelled at for laughing after setting the fire alarm off from burning the bacon, so I couldn’t take pictures.
So the first week of the Paleo Challenge is ovah, and I’m so happy to say I’ve stuck to it completely. Monday marked week 2, and here are some of my favorite meals so far.
My go to is a scramble made of 2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites, sweet potatoes cooked in coconut oil, veggies, and 1/2 of an avocado, for more healthy fats. This bad boy typically keeps me full from about 9 until 1/1:30.
Over the weekend I made PaleOMG’s Pizza Spaghetti Pie, along with about half of my CrossFit box. We somehow all made/ate this on Sunday, and we all kept commenting on each other’s status about how addicting it is.
Pictures don’t do this meal any justice, but it was SO incredibly sweet and delicious! You NEED to go make this yesterday. This yielded 6 humungo jumbo servings, which easily gets me through the work week!
I love nuts. I eat 1/2 cup of mixed nuts with raisins throughout the day. Usually a little around 12 before lunch, and the rest around 3:30, in between lunch and dinner.
If you’re like me, which if you’re on this blog, than you are because you like nut butters. The only ish I have is that they cost about $10 a jar for almond butter, and then they’re loaded with unnecessary sugars or oils. It’s hard to find an almond butter that is legitimately Paleo approved, which is why I’m in love with The Fresh Market and their “make your own almond butter.”
No added ingredients, just unsalted almonds. This ginormous mug of almond butter for $10.16. I know I could make my own if I bought my own bag of almonds, but we’re not talking about that. Yes, it totally looks like poop.
Very important question: What’s your favorite brand or flavor of nut butter?
Barney’s Almond Butter will always be my #1.
