Healthy food today!

Today I did pretty good with the eating. Breakfast was really small - mostly because Starbucks doesn't have many options for paleo people. I basically ate the egg and fruit out of a protein plate. DH wouldn't eat the weird peanut butter packet, cheese, and nutrigrain thing that came with it. Oh well. I need to figure out what to do with my coffee. I'm super addicted (as in I'll get a terrible withdrawal headache by noon if I don't have a cup in the morning). But I also don't really like black coffee. I HAVE to have either a touch of milk or a bit of sugar... so that led me to add a dollop of half & half to my coffee. Just enough to take the bitterness out.
Lunch wasn't big enough. I'd forgotten that Chipotle expects you to pile a "salad" up with rice and beans. I should have asked for more lettuce. Oh well. And I discovered that if you add mild and hot or medium salsa, it basically acts as a salad dressing so you don't have to worry about trying to figure out what's in their house dressing.
Dinner was sooo good! Shrimp "tacos" that used butter lettuce instead of taco shells. (recipe follows) DH really enjoyed it too. I'll be making that one again soon.
I got some quilting in too today. The superman quilt is almost 1/3 quilted. I found a backing for the blue quilt too. And I have the squares for another quilt sewn - they still need to be pressed and squared up before I make them into a quilt top.
Tomorrow I start back up with the running. Yay!
