Oh TOM... how I hate thee, let me count the ways. I have been starving ALL DAY!!!!! So I ate a lot today... and I think I missed pics of some of it... because I was noshin down. Lol!
Breakfast: flax meal porridge topped with bananas & cinnamon.
Breakfast part 2: Paleo Sugar Cookie donut. NOMS.
Recipe for donuts:
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 dropper stevia (or 2 tbsp honey)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the middle and add the remaining ingredients. With a fork, mix all making sure to smooth out any clumps.
Let rest for a few minutes for the coconut flour to soak up all the liquid it can. If your batter is too thick, add a few more tablespoons almond milk. Consistency should be close to thick pancake batter.
Grease mini bundt pans, or any other pan you’d like. Spoon the batter, evenly into your pans (mine makes about 3 bundtlets). Bake for about 30 minutes (check at 25). You want the center to be firm and a slight golden color to them.
2 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
5 drops vanilla stevia
1 tbsp cocoa or carob powder
2 tbsp almond milk
Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust the ingredients, as needed. More stevia, almond milk, or almond butter/peanut butter may be required.
The frosting should be thick and not too sweet, but the beauty of recipes is that you make it how you like it. :)
Lunch: Chicken, avocado, and bacon from Which Wich. So yummy!
Snack: a bag of beef jerky (ok.. a small bag). So it's not the healthiest snack I could have had... there are definitely ingredients in this brand of jerky that I DO NOT eat or EVER recommend eating, but I was about to eat my arm off. Literally. It really started looking juicy and tasty. So... beef jerky it was. (I was stuck at work).
Dinner: "cereal" . Sliced strawberries, blueberries, and banana, topped with coconut and walnut pieces, sprinkled with cinnamon, and drowned in unsweetened almond milk. DELICIOUS!!! WAY more fruit than I usually eat at once (or in a day o.O) but it was very filling and VERY good.

Our WOD today... "Helen" ... my first of the Ladies... and she was a b****!!! I ended up laying on the floor shaking... and just BARELY made it in time before the cut off. But I did it! And it left me EXHAUSTED today! Very ready for my weekend of rest. It also left me STARVING. ALL. DAY. However I'm due for TOM any day so that could be playing a part in that, as well. Grrr. Oh well. :)
Helen. Doesn't look like much, but you mess with her and you will get effed up!
Now... onto my food ;-)
Breakfast - apple pancake with coconut cinnamon butter, and a few slices of bananas with some almond butter.
Lunch - ezekiel tortilla with cashew ranch, chicken, tomatoes, and avocado! And it was perty!
Still hungry about 25-30 minutes after I finished lunch, so I made some coconut protein pudding, then topped it with cacao nibs and some banana, and 2 coconut chocolates.
Out running errands and stopped at Kroger for some water... ended up treating myself to a coconut water! I love coconut ^_^
Dinner - Bubble and Squeak. Traditionally, bubble and squeak is a pot of "leftover Sunday dinner" that is all cooked together - the name coming from the sound it makes while it cooks. It was big during WWII especially, and usually consists of potatoes, ham, and cabbage, however other veggies and/or meats can be used as well. (I had to wikipedia this... I had no clue what this food was when I originally found the recipe on Pinterest! Haha!)
1 cup grated cauliflower
1/2 tbsp cream cheese or milk
1/4 cup chicken broth or water
1 cup shredded cabbage
2 pieces low sodium bacon
salt and pepper
Steam/microwave the cauliflower with the chicken broth until soft. Mash with a fork or immersion blender and stir in cream cheese. Season with salt/pepper as desired. Congratz... you just made mashed potatoes! Haha!
Now... Steam or microwave the cabbage for a few minutes until softened. Mix the cabbage with the cauliflower puree and chopped bacon, and season with salt and pepper. Place in an oven proof bowl (sprinkle with cheese if desired - I use nutritional yeast) and bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees or until heated through and bubbling.
Dessert... round 2! My Paleo cookie dough yumminess. ^_^

Breakfast - apple flax pancake topped with cinnamon coconut butter!
My apple pancake recipe:
2 egg whites
1 tbsp milk (coconut, almond, etc)
1/8 tsp cinnamon
5 drops vanilla stevia (or 2 tsp other sweetener)
1/3 apple, minced
2 tbsp flax meal
Whisk together egg whites, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla until frothy and well mixed. Add in apples and flax, and then set aside for about 4 minutes (it will thicken and congeal a little bit). Preheat a small omelet or pancake pan with a bit of coconut oil over medium heat. Cook the batter for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. It should be lovely golden brown on both sides. Serve with favorite topping! (Peanut butter is amazing if you eat peanuts!)
My topping of choice: 2 tbsp coconut milk (canned/thick kind), 1/2 tbsp almond butter, dash cinnamon, 3 drops vanilla stevia. Mix together and that's it!
Lunch - Pork steak stuffed with whole roasted garlic cloves and jalapenos, and sauteed sauerkraut.
Dinner - Movies and wine with my sister ^_^

Breakfast. Fried egg, bacon, cauliflower hashbrowns, and avocado.
Snack. Almond joys! Homemade of course. Coconut oil, carob powder, an almond in the center, topped with coconut shavings.
Dinner. Wasn't hungry for lunch so I ate an early dinner instead. Avocado, chicken, and bacon. No I didn't eat all the chicken and bacon, but I sure as HELL ate all that avocado! Lol!!
Snack 2. Since I didn't eat dinner at my normal time, I got hungry later in the evening. The only snack available to me was some in-shell peanuts... worked for me! Had a handful. :)
