Bear with me as I get used to this whole blogging thing.
Quick background on my typical diet and how much I am obsessed with this Paleo stuff. I am just shy of two weeks on Paleo and I am proud to say I’ve only cheated once. The cheat occurred by licking the frosting off of my finger from cutting my birthday cake and handing it out to co-workers. Guilt set in and then I quickly got over it. Prior to this challenge, I’ve suffered from insane headaches (almost daily) and terrible heartburn from just about anything I eat. Due to the headaches/migraines, I cut out most sugar and don’t go near any artificial sweeteners, so that transition was not difficult for me. I still use Stevia, mainly because this is the sweetener from heaven and hasn’t had any negative affects on me at all. Since starting eating Paleo, I haven’t had a single headache….let me repeat…NOT A SINGLE HEADACHE. I’ve also not experienced one bout of heartburn. So no pills for me!!
My scale broke 3 days before this challenge so I can’t say if I’ve lost any lbs. Honestly, I am happy it broke because I’d be stepping on the thing every 10 min like a crazy person. All I know is I feel great. If this is what it takes to feel like a rockstar, then I don’t see why I haven’t been eating like this for the past 28 years. I am looking forward to finding new foods and sharing some ideas (can’t guarantee they will all be good) with all of you! Enjoy!
The “what’s left in my fridge” Fritatta…Yum
2-3 pieces of Maverick Ranch Applewood Smoked Nitrate-free bacon (found at publix)
Large portobello mushroom head chopped
Handful of fresh spinach
Dash of almond milk (coconut milk would be better but that’s all I had)
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
-Cook up your bacon. Crumble into pieces and set aside.
-Saute your veggies in coconut oil and skillet adding the spinach in the last few seconds to wilt.
-While veggies are sauteing, whip your eggs and milk together adding some pepper to taste.
-Throw the bacon back in the skillet and pour your egg mixture on top. Make sure the veggies are evenly displaced in the skillet. Remain on medium heat for a few minutes till the bottom of the fritatta sets.
-Place skillet in the oven for about 10-15 min till eggs look cooked. Fire up your broiler for about 5 min and you’re all set for a crispy delicious breakfast.
My kid loved it. I loved it…and I am planning on going to a 3 year old b-day party today. Knowing that there will be no Paleo grub at a b-day party and the possibility of stress onset by screaming children could cause me to dive into some cake pops….I will be packing this for later. Re-heat tomorrow morning and it is just as good. Hot sauce is also an option!
