What I Ate today!

Breakfast: the usual bulletproof coffee!  Switched things up a bit by using Chimay butter instead of Kerrygold.  I truly love Chimay!  I accidentally bought unsalted Chimay last week and was very disappointed when I went to snack on some, but then I realized I could use it in my coffee!  WIN!

Lunch:

It was awesome! I got some grain free bread today while out and came home very hungry! Decided to cook up some bacon and eggs for me and my mom.  There is no way I could eat all this by myself!

This is the bread:

Then I had a Larabar, a chocolate chip brownie one.  It was ok.  I prefer the cherry pie one.

Then I had some nice, hot, organic dandelion tea!

Water all day long too.

Right now I’m deciding on what to make for dinner while doing 3 loads of laundry (with home made detergent) and my daughter is eating leftover gluten free quinoa Mac and Cheese. I need a nap.

Snack… Cheese! I had a Baby Bell cheese with my daughter. Probably not the best cheese in the world, but she was crying for “the red cheese” at the supermarket. Trying to get her to be a Kerrygold baby!

I still have laundry to do. I hate laundry so I wait till we have no clothes left to wear. I did 3 loads before, 3 loads on Tuesday, and I have about 3 more to do tonight. Maybe 4. And I still didn’t figure out dinner. I thought we had some organic grass fed ground beef in the fridge, but my husband just told me he threw it in the freezer last night. Hmmmmmmmmm
Snack time!  When I first bought this Qia stuff I hated it!  The directions say to pour milk over it and eat.  It isn’t anything like cereal.  I figured I just wasted $10 on this stuff until someone else mentioned it and said it’s awesome with yogurt.  So glad she did!  It’s awesome!!!!!  LOVE it!

OK… Dinner worked itself out after all.  I went across the hall to my mom’s to go through her fridge before resorting to ordering food and sure enough… I found more ground beef!!!!!  I thought I bought some the other day!  So glad I looked because this came awesome!

Organic ground beef with Trader Joes taco seasoning, organic black beans, organic tomatoes, organic lettuce and guacamole! Yum!  The black beans weren’t so Paleo, but my husband really wanted them.  I figured since they were organic and we haven’t had beans in over 2 months it wouldn’t kill us.  They were awesome!

So for a snack tonight, i’m munching on some butter.  Chimay!!!!  YUM YUM!!!!

So that’s it for today… I hope!  Maybe a cherry pie Lara Bar later!

What did you eat today?

Kale? YUCK!

Kale.  Ever try it?  Disgusting, isn’t it?  I’ve tried it baked in the oven to make “chips”, in smoothies, and by itself.  It’s gross.  It gets stuck in your teeth and it’s hard to swallow.

I know it’s good for you, It’s in the cabbage family, and it’s very high in vitamins A, B6, C and K. And it’s high in iron. But I just don’t like it.  Sorry kale.

But then my entire world was rocked!!!!

One day I was walking through the new “healthy” section of my local grocery store and on the very bottom shelf I saw a nice, clear package with leafy green things inside.  Kale.  Raw kale.  Brads Raw Leafy Kale.  With vegan cheese?  What in the name of all that is holy is vegan cheese?  Well, this is apparently made with cashews.  I have heard about cashew cheese since changing my diet to a more primal one, but we do still eat dairy and I’ve never tried cashew cheese.  Anyway…

I was very intrigued.  My husband told me I was insane for spending over $7 on a small box of my most hated leafy vegetable.  But I bought a box of the “Naked” ones, came home, and tried it.  10 minutes later, I had finished the entire box!  There’s quite a bit in here too.  (I’m munching on some now).  I felt like I had just eaten something naughty, but instead it was as if I had eaten a big salad.

This stuff isn’t limp and floppy like raw kale.  It’s dehydrated at a low temperature to achieve a wonderful crispy texture, while still holding all of it’s super powers.  I will never try to make kale chips again, unless I try it in my dehydrator.

I have tried EVERY flavor Brad’s has to offer.  The one I expected to hate has become my second favorite… their “Pina-Kale-Ada”.  Something about sweet pineapple, banana an coconut on a kale leaf just didn’t sit right with me.  I carefully opened the package and tried one, expecting to want to spit it out.  Once again… 10 minutes later… empty container with no regrets!  The “Naked” is still my favorite, but they’re all REALLY good!!!!  And now I see they are coming out with Onion Rings!  OMG I will have to get my hands on some of those!!!!!  I hope my store carries it.  I’m not patient enough to wait for shipping.

Since my first container, I have gone back to buy at least 5 more, and I just got a box of another 5 I ordered online.  I think i’m addicted!  But hey, there are worse things I could be addicted to.
