After a sleepless night, literally, I asked my husband to pick me up BurgerFi on his way home from work. Today consisted of an unintentional day of fasting, and rolling around in bed attempting to nap with the little one; I decided I deserved a glutenous meal. My order was almost artery clogging, however, I left out the fried egg and I exercised (made it to the 6 week postpartum mark!).
That’s stacked three high with natural burgers, plus bacon, tomato and pickle. I always opt for lettuce wrapped. Unfortunately, they don’t have sweet potato fries so I settled for salted fries. I devoured this meal, quite an attractive sight! I am sad to report that the coconut slush is gone; it’s time for the next dessert! This round I added the macadamia nut butter and drizzled on some left over raspberry sauce my husband used in his latest batch of macarons (recipe to follow).
Home-made Raspberry Sauce: (modified Laduree’s raspberry macaron filling recipe for paleo-friendly eaters)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1.5 cup fresh raspberries
juice of 1/4 lemon
few tbsp coconut milk
*In a food processor gently blend raspberries, warm them in a pan, add the other ingredients and bring mixture to a boil for two minutes.
The work-out I chose today was one I have done in the past –
I highly recommend this channel, they have a wide variety of different routines of all different fitness levels and durations.
As I pray for a restful night, I remind myself:
peace. love. paleo.
