I'm sure for some of you, with Easter just behind us, a photo of a hard-boiled egg is the last thing you want to look at right now. But I have to assure you, this hard-boiled egg is no ordinary hard-boiled egg. It's got deliciousness on top of it. But more about that later.
I'm linking up again with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for one of the biggest link-up parties I know! And I'm mixing it up again! Let's just look at my last couple of What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) posts:
Yeah, so I've been on this Paleo lifestyle / way of eating since February of this year and now I'm throwing you all off by doing a Spring Reset Challenge with Laura from Mommy Run Fast!
The Spring Reset Challenge is a nutritional reset. As Laura explains at the spring reset challenge link above, it's a whole foods detox and the timing (spring) is aligned with our bodies natural desire to follow the seasons. We're getting ready of all the impact of eating winter foods. What I like about this reset is it is a group event and we all keep in touch using social media. The reset started Monday and runs until Mother's Day.
We are scheduled for twenty-one (count 'em!) lovely days of eating clean. I'll warn you now, it's not Paleo. So for the next three weeks, I'm deviating (slightly) from my Paleo lifestyle. At the end of the three weeks, I'll decide if I will go back to the Paleo way of eating or if I'll make some adaptations. I don't think I'll go vegetarian or vegan or anything, but while I was eating Paleo, I did make concessions, like occasional dairy, so I could make additional changes to my diet.
For week one of the spring reset challenge, we've been asked to not eat processed food, wheat, cow's milk, meat (fish is allowed), or sugar. So this week at WIAW, I am sharing What I Ate
Lunch: mixed greens with chickpeas and a lovely lemon-tahini dressing
Afternoon snack: apple slices with almond butter
Dinner: buddha bowl (red leaf lettuce, quinoa, sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, spinach, garlic, and some scallions). To finish, we also had some hummus with celery!
How the first day went: not bad! I felt light...maybe a little too light, which is why I had to make that hummus to fill me up after dinner. Which was great, because the hummus ended up as the topper on my hard-boiled eggs on Tuesday!
Which brings me back to where I started -- those hard boiled eggs -- are topped with my favorite hummus in the world. I discovered this hummus while dining at True Food Kitchen here in Denver and was so excited when I found the recipe available online. If you are a hummus lover, I highly recommend it!
Do you have a favorite vegetarian dish? I'd love it if you could share it! Only five more days until I can have meat again!!
