This past week seems like it was really crazy, maybe it was just getting back to the daily grind after Christmas break.
It’s been a week that has left me considering new possibilities on the horizon. Interestingly enough it had me looking into the medical field, which I never thought would be a possibility or interest. I just want to feel like more than a babysitter at a job.
Anyways, this isn’t a place where I’ll go too much into the other parts of my life.
The first week of Paleo has been great. Aside from learning how to cook while incorporating more vegetables, and learning how much time this takes. I feel like I living in the kitchen as I try to prepare healthy meals for myself and my husband.
Friday nights meal was Sloppy Joes and Basil Spinach, this was a cinch to prepare and was gobbled up by my husband. .
My favorite meal of the week was my reintroduction of the Green Monster back into my diet. I first found out about the Green Monster about a year and a half ago from Iowa Girl Eats. Her blog was the first blog I starting following, and helped to plant the seed to start my own blog.
Having a Green Monster for breakfast gave me a tremendous amount of energy, I didn’t even need to have coffee I was so energized. The best part is that it keeps you full all the way till lunch time.
Since we’re following the Paleo plan, I tweaked the recipe to fit my needs.
Green Monster Smoothie
1 sliced frozen banana
4 cups Spinach
1 tablespoon Almond Butter
1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1 Scoop Whey Protein
Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth
After doing a great job all week following the Paleo plan all week, we decided that since we were going out with friends tonight we would let ourselves have a cheat night. We went to Cheesecake Factory and the food was great. But one things for sure, I’m actually getting used to not eating carbs and found myself wishing there were more vegetables. I guess change is good after all.
