I’ve gotten a little behind in my posting. Mostly because I didn’t take very many pictures since I’ve eaten leftovers all week. Yesterday I started the day with a new breakfast meal. It’s hard to see in the picture, but they are pancakes of a sort, with egg, spinach, pork, and coconut flour. I used ground pork from my meat CSA and the Breakfast Seasoning spice from Penzey’s. Oh. My. Gosh. I can’t even tell you how good that seasoning is and how sad I am that there is sugar in it and I can’t knowingly order it again. Back to the pancakes – they were okay, but a little dry. Not sure if I overcooked them or if that is just coconut flour. I’ve never cooked or baked with it before.
For lunch I had pulled pork with a sweet potato that I baked the night before. A little later, I was still starving so I ate the rest of the pulled pork. For dinner I had leftover pork mixed with broccoli slaw (just shredded broccoli and carrots I buy from TJs) and topped with guacamole and salsa. I also had a cup of chicken broth to keep the germs away. I went for a run (first time in I don’t know how long!) and managed 3.4 miles! After picking the love up from SFO I had one small “pancake” before going to bed.
Breakfast this morning was the same as yesterday, but I am finally back to decaf-only black coffee. Phew. Took a few weeks, but I like it much better this way! For lunch I had some blackened cod that was in the work freezer from last week. I also had 1/2 of a giant sweet potato and two broiled zucchinis. I ate a Larabar in the afternoon out of pure hunger. I really don’t think they taste good at all. I’ve been drinking a ton of water lately and feel really good. I’m much less snacky in the afternoon.
For dinner I created a 10 minute TJs meal. I sliced up and threw a package of spicy jalapeno chicken sausages in a pan, added a can of organic diced tomatoes and threw in half a bag of spinach. It wasn’t the most amazing thing ever, but it worked and there are leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
I have quite a few fun meals planned for the weekend, not to mention a lot of sleep and hopefully a lot of time out in the sun.
