Dipping my toe in
Monday, August 15, 2011
Yesterday I "dipped my toe" into the world of Paleo. There were some screw-ups, but in general the day was healthy.
I lazed half the day away with my husband. He slept till noon, I laid in bed next to him and read my book. It was nice. Normally on Sundays we're in a rush to get everything done.
Then we stopped by Togos and Starbucks to pick up lunch for his family. We didn't see the point in taking longer getting the food than we would spend eating it, so we split it up - he went to Togos and I went to Starbucks. They're next door to each other, so it made sense. It wasn't until we were in the car on the way to his parents' house that I thought about the fact that sandwiches have bread on them. And then I didn't want to make him feel bad for ordering me my favorite sandwich... so I just ate it.
A few hours later I had a hardboiled egg and a plum for a snack. Then dinner was steak with sauteed squash and cauliflower. I used the drippings and some beef broth to make a reduction to put on top of the steak. It was pretty tasty. I ate two animal cookies without thinking about it when my husband literally put them in my mouth as he was walking by. They were good. Normally it would send me into a cookie-eating binge, but for some reason it didn't last night. i think I was just uber focused on the quilt I was working on. It helps.
After I cleaned up from making/eating dinner, I decided to make mini crustless quiches to eat for breakfast/snacks this week. It's basically a dozen eggs, some meat (I used ham), and some veggies (I used spinach and tomato). Scramble your eggs. Put about half the egg in 12 lined muffin cups. Add meat and veggies. Top with the rest of the egg. Bake in an oven at 350* for 20 minutes.
They definitely smelled eggy when they were cooking. And again when I took them out of the fridge this morning to heat up. I probably over-baked them, since they tasted like miniature overcooked omelets without cheese. My husband wouldn't touch them. Oh well. I've got 10 more. Gotta eat them so the food doesn't go to waste, right?
