So I haven’t posted in a few days cause I have been busy. I woke up Friday feeling awesome and end up doing a lot of random shopping. Saturday was a decent day and I decided to cook a little bit but not everything.
I started with mayo again for like the 5th time. I used the recipe that you can find here: http://thehealthyfoodie.com/2013/07/07/fail-proof-home-made-paleo-mayo-whole30-compliant/
Only difference between mine and hers is that I didn’t use a mason jar or that fancy mixer thing so mine didn’t turn out the same. And I added an extra egg to thicken it up. Its not the kinda mayo I want to spread on stuff but it worked well for egg and chicken salad.
Another thing I made yesterday was crockpot chicken from everyday paleo: http://everydaypaleo.com/spice-rub-crock-pot-chicken/
First thing I did was slice some onion with my nifty new slicer.
Its awesome! and then I lined the crock pot with it.
after that I mixed my spices together and rubbed my chicken down.
Then I put it in the crock pot for several hours.
When it was done it completely fell apart! So good. I sauteed some carrots with coconut aminos and then ate! I also boiled some for my grandparents before sauteing it so they would be cooked a little more for them.
It was a little spicy but so good!
While the chicken was cooking I was also boiling a dozen eggs to make egg salad.
When they were done, I peeled them, mashed them up, mixed in bacon, green onions, salt, pepper and some of my homemade mayo.
It makes being hungry when you come home easier and it will be part of my lunch tomorrow.
After all that was done I make cookie dough balls! Wait what? That’s right I found a recipe for cookie dough balls and they are baller!! Pun so intended! You can find the recipe here: http://livinghealthywithchocolate.com/desserts/paleo-cookie-dough-bites-1752/
Mine aren’t as pretty but they are so so good. This will definitely help my sugar cravings!
After I rolled mine into balls I put them back in the fridge then put them back in again after I put the chocolate on top!
Today when I got up I made some chicken salad with some of the leftover chicken. I put the chicken in the chopper to shred it then I added garlic, onions, slicked almond and a little ginger. Mixed it up then added some mayo. This will also be a part of my lunch tomorrow.
Then I thawed out my chicken wings enough to unwrap them from the package. I made a marinade that you can find here: http://everydaypaleo.com/sneak-peak-recipe-from-the-everyday-paleo-family-cookbook/
I made it completely in a freezer bag. Put my chicken wings in there and put them in the fridge. As they thaw they will marinate.
I also took some frozen chicken breast that I had in a freezer bag and added marinade ingredients. http://everydaypaleo.com/budget-friendly-balsamic-mustard-chicken-and-oven-roasted-bacon-veggies-by-erika/
Mixed it up and put it back in the freezer.
Now on Tuesday I am going to a birthday party and although it will be a small affair the only food they are having is pizza. So I decided I’m going to make some pizza bites. So first thing I had to do is make pizza dough. You can find the recipe here: http://www.agirlworthsaving.net/2013/01/paleo-pizza-crust.html
I made mine and put it in the fridge as I will bake them tomorrow so they will be ready for Tuesday.
Finally I made my breakfast. I bought some sausage patties and fried them up and I made some French Toast Muffins. http://www.whatigather.com/2012/02/paleo-banana-french-toast-muffins.html
Instead of Banana I used Applesauce cause I don’t like bananas at all! Now they are very bland but I tried adding a tad bit of maple syrup and then they were fantastic. Which I mean who eats french toast without any syrup.
Finally I have a confession to make. I cheated today. Part of me feels so bad but my taste buds were happy at least for a minute. My aunt and uncle came to visit from Alabama and I haven’t seen them in a while. So, everyone met at cracker barrel and I did some good but I did end up eating 2 biscuits with apple butter. They were so good though! I’m sure I will be feeling it later so I will make sure to let you know!
Let the week begin!!! (and no more cheating I promise)
