I'm linking up once again with Jenn at Peas and Crayons to share my eats! This week, I'm going to share what I ate on Sunday. I've been in a little funk with cooking... I haven't been in the mood to cook, which is awful because I don't really see eating out as a better option. Don't get me wrong, I love eating out now and again, but it's really hard to eat healthy and eat Paleo if you have to dine out all the time.
So last Saturday afternoon, I told myself to sit down and plan three square meals for Sunday. Just plan meals for one day, I promised myself. Besides, a snowstorm was predicted to descend upon Denver on Sunday and I didn't want to be making any runs off to the grocery store unless absolutely necessary.
Six egg frittata with mushrooms, onion, bacon, red bell pepper, tomatoes and chives. The secret ingredient? Coconut milk. I always put milk in my scrambles and frittatas and since going paleo, I've swapped out my cow's milk for coconut milk or almond milk. Coconut milk for sure in this frittata. We also had coffee (with almond milk) and some paleo waffles (made with coconut flour and macadamia nuts), both of which I forgot to take a picture of before they were consumed.
The supposed snowstorm had not started by mid-morning, so after breakfast we headed out for errands...and by the time lunch came around, we were far enough from home that we decided to eat out at ModMarket, which is one of my healthy options when it comes to dining out. The food is nothing fancy, but they have great salads, and there's pizza for my husband and toddler. I had the Farmer's Market salad: mixed greens, roasted chicken, grapes, almonds, feta cheese, corn, and a champagne vinaigrette dressing. The corn & feta cheese are not Paleo, but I didn't sweat it. And the lunch I originally had planned? That was pushed to dinner for Monday night...
I always get a case of the snackies around 4pm, no matter what I eat for breakfast and lunch. I think it's a habit thing. So I had a good handful of raw almonds. But I was still hungry at 5pm, so I also made a small Caeser salad with some avocado and bacon:
My husband was all tangled up in taxes so dinner was a little later than we had planned. We try to cook together as often as possible, but Sunday night, I had to fly solo. I made a kale salad with a citrusy vinaigrette topped with almonds and dried cranberries. I served that salad up with a strip steak and some roasted broccoli. A lot of green on that plate, and not a very colorful plate at that, but it sure was tasty! My husband is already begging for a repeat of the kale salad. I might have to share the recipe...
Do you ever get in a funk with cooking meals at home? What do you do?
