Hooray, it’s Hump Day!!
The Challenge is going really well. I am surprised I am not getting hungry between meals at all. In fact, I almost skipped lunch today, but figured that might cause me trouble later. I just ate it late. Here’s the run down ~
Breakfast: Pumpkin Coconut Smoothie, recipe here:http://www.ameessavorydish.com/2013/04/paleo-smoothies.html
Isn’t that the cutest bunny ring dish?? From Anthropologie!
This was so very good. The recipe made 2 good size servings, and I had it all! I know, I know, way too much I am sure. No wonder I wasn’t very hungry for lunch 🙂 I grated fresh nutmeg on top….yummy! I can totally see me making this when I am off the challenge and adding honey to it!
Lunch: I’ll call this Brussel Sprout and Chicken Hash. I sauteed the shredded sprouts then threw in some cut up leftover lemon mushroom chicken in the pan and cooked until the chicken was heated through. Delicious!
Dinner: Artichoke Lemon Pesto Chicken, recipe here:http://paleomg.com/artichoke-lemon-pesto-chicken-pasta/
Pictures are of the entire recipe, NOT my dinner plate! This was good………but I wasn’t too keen on the spaghetti squash “pasta”. I love all the squashes, but eating it in pasta form was kind of yucky. I would make this again just with the chicken. The artichoke lemon pesto is really, really good. I could see it being a topping for bruschetta when I am finished the challenge.
For my kids, (Mike is away), who are eating regularly, I made a yummy 5 Spice Tilapia which I’ve made a few times before. It’s really good and from Eating Well…..http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/five_spice_tilapia.html
It’s awesome that my son likes sauteed brussel sprouts and my daughter likes roasted beets, yay!
Another day down! Now time to chill for the evening 🙂
