Paleo Challenge Day 3 Recap (Plus, A Cheesy Avocado Joke!)

Happy Thursday! 

Want to know what sucks? Living across the street from the Great Allentown Fair (the "great" is debatable) and smelling fried dough. I literally got chills thinking about biting into a deliciously greasy-crispy-sugary mass of diabetes in the making. I'm all about all things in moderation if your body can tolerate them and if they don't make you totally go off the clean eating rails....for me, fried dough is no such food. 

Anyway, here's what I ate today.


Baked apple pancake! Sauteed the apples in coconut oil. Whisked up 2 eggs, 2 Tbsp almond flour, cinnamon, vanilla, and a bit of salt and added to the pan. Let it set a bit then put under the broiler til it puffed a bit. 


Arugula salad with leftover grass-fed ground beef, carrots, cashews, and raisins. Plus kombucha. Oh, and a bite of paleo berry crisp my kick-ass friend Siobhan (a.k.a. the baked good fairy) made. Double oh, I also ate some sunflower seed butter by the spoonful when I was stuck in my office on a conference call.


Ugh, too damn hot to cook, so this was my lame dinner. Then I got hungry and cooked myself up an Italian chicken sausage and ate it while standing in my kitchen, hovering over the sink because I didn't want to dirty a plate. I'm weird. It's fine.

And now I'm chilling with Milo who is wondering why I'm staring at a screen instead of giving him a belly rub. He's perfected the pathetic pup stare.

Peace, love & paleo pancakes,
