Paleo eats, day 6

--I went grocery shopping for food hungry. Always a dumb move. So I ended up snarfing the tasty food at Whole Foods. I had a little of everything!
Brunch: Grilled portabella, Bison ribs, bacon, scrambled eggs, oriental almond-cabbage slaw, steamed broccoli, a bit of mixed greens, blueberries, blackberries, and the last of the strawberries. Om nom nom.
Dinner: zucchini fritters- he calls them "cakes".

Apple-cinnamon creamed cereal

-- I call it "nut porridge", as it is made from walnuts and macadamias. We were lazy and threw in some apple butter in place of the apples and cinnamon. Turned out super-tasty. Extremely filling and a really good energy source.
Kale with Mel's magical tahini dressing

-- a ridiculously easy, great-smelling, and yummy recipe.

Paleo eats, day 5

Breakfast: beef bouillon
Snack: frozen mango chunks
--I finally got my nausea meds! Maybe I'll be able to actually eat some fat, protein, and veggies the rest of the day! *hopes*
Lunch: "bacon-wrapped sirloin" with kale beef stew
-- I came up with this myself, and I am sooo happy with the result. Then again, it's difficult to do too badly with a full package of bacon in the mix. :)
Zucchini with tamari and sesame seeds
--should have been good, but I drowned it in tamari and I didn't sear/brown the zucchini properly. Must work on this skill, as I have a feeling I'll be using it a LOT.
Snack: multi-berry and chocolate almond milk drink
-- this works waaay better when the berries are frozen, not defrosted
Dinner: more beef stew
-- it got better as it set. Mmmm...

Paleo eats, day 2

Breakfast: leftover curried chicken w/ romaine
No snack, felt gross
Lunch: "Jamaican" ribs
(From cavemanfood.blogspot.com)
Crispy zucchini chips
(From marksdailyapple.com)
Bombed the chips, but going to try again once I get a dehydrator. Don't know where they got the "Jamaican" bit from for the ribs, but with a little extra salt they were quite tasty.
Snack: the last of the beef jerky
1/2 banana
Dinner: pho from tangerine cafe--splurge! No noodles, though. I was good.

Paleo eats, day 1

The run-down of food from DAY 1:
Breakfast- beef jerky
blueberry-choco almond milk smoothie
Snack- pecan coconut date rolls (paleoparents.com)
Lunch- maple glazed pork tenderloin (epicurious.com)
savory coconut pancakes (nomnompaleo.com)
almost a full head of romaine (it's a preggers thing)
Dinner- paleo coconut curry chicken (cosmopolitanprimalgirl.wordpress.com)
steamed asparagus
Dessert- Fresh Strawberries 
In short, pretty flippin' delish. :)

First post. Woot.

So, this is the first inaugural post of paleololo! Long time coming, this. My reason for restarting this diet in earnest is that I'm six months preggers, and I have a crazy little two-year-old girl named Aria. Needless to say, I need the energy, and I just want to take care of my body. So does the husband, Luke.
Anyhow, more introductive stuff will come as we post.

Eat well, folks.
