DAY TWO – Paleo Week

Hello again!

So I woke up today at 8:00am and did not want to get up, mostly because I had to go into work at 9:00.  So I went downstairs and made myself breakfast.  I thought it would be a good idea to have eggs again, but maybe it wasn’t because I ended up dropping some eggs on the ground and they broke, of course.   What a great way to start the morning, right?!  And let me tell you, eggs might be the most annoying things to clean up off of the floor.  But anyways, I ended up making my self two eggs (which kinda stuck to the pan because we are out of pam, so they aren’t that pretty) and berries.  I had coffee too.  I managed to read the work schedule wrong and showed up 10 minutes late to my shift because my shift actually started at 8:45…. oh well.  I hope the rest of my day goes a little better hahah.

ALSO very sad about this… Apparently peanuts aren’t paleo!  Because they’re actually a legume, not a nut.  What am I going to do without my peanut butter! (Luckily I still have my almond butter).  Also sad because I did eat a decent amount of peanuts and peanut butter yesterday… oops

Oh I almost forgot, I made a paleo no-bake “cookie” last night.  It was a combo of coconut oil, shaved coconut, cocoa powder, honey, and almond butter.  It actually tasted really good but looked horrible!  It looked like a dark brown, chunky blob, which you can see here:

AND my favorite hummus company (Cedar’s) followed me on Instagram today! How exciting! (I feel like this is something only I would get excited about lol – but let me know if you’re excited toooo).

For my lunch break, I went to my friend Anna’s house which is across the street from work.  I forgot that she’s vegetarian and so is most of her family, so I had an issue finding stuff to eat!  I settled on lettuce wraps with sautéed mushrooms and lots of guac.  It was SO good.  I also had an apple with almond butter and some cashews.

When I got home from work later, I ate a half of a grilled chicken breast before heading off to a lacrosse game.  (my fav thing ever is grilled chicken w ketchup.  sounds weird, tastes good).  And I snacked on some almonds before dinner.

For dinner, I’m making iron skillet salmon with roasted brussel sprouts!  I’m hype because I literally love salmon and i love brussel sprouts.  The recipe I used is here

I cooked the salmon with the skin on, and it’s super easy with salmon because the skin literally just falls off when you cook it.

I also cooked it in an iron skillet – super easy.

After dinner, I went to a Zumba class with my friends Nicole, Kravets, and Will.  It was fun, except I am literally the WORST dancer ever.  So due to me sucking at dancing, zumba was wicked hard.  I really wish I could dance, but there are things in life that I’m just not meant to be good at!

See you tomorrow,

xx, Sarah
