Breakfast: sweet potato & pork hash with a poached egg
Made by my wonderful husband (I will have to work on getting the secret recipe ;p ).
Lunch: Frankie’s meatballs, tomato sauce & spaghetti squash
These meatballs are a modification of Frankie Spuntino’s Meatballs (click on link for recipe) – we omitted cheese. Guilty, we used gluten-free bread, next batch I would like to omit that ingredient as well. Thankfully my husband bares with my diet restrictions and kindly adjusts the recipe for himself and I. The tomato sauce is simply whole canned tomatoes strained and cooked on medium heat until thick consistency meets your liking. Refer back to squash post for preparation for spaghetti replacement: spaghetti squash (click on link for cooking instructions).
Dinner: sausage with bacon & apple cider vinegar kale and parsnip fries.
This mild italian sausage was purchased from Wegman’s (their own brand), no additives. The kale was sauteed in bacon grease and topped off with finely chopped bacon of two pieces and apple cider vinegar (add until your taste buds appreciate the flavor, I used about 4 tbsp on my serving). My husband made parsnip fries again, twice fried in avocado oil. This round he made the slices a bit thicker – I thoroughly enjoyed the “meatier” fry compared to the thinner crispy fries. However, I do have to say both are excellent and I highly recommend making this side.
Dessert: Paleo Lemon Bars
These yummy treats were made from the recipe on Paleo Cupboard’s website: Paleo Lemon Bars. This is the second recipe I have tried for paleo lemon bars. This recipe produces bars that hold their shape and are firmer, given that tapioca flour is used. However, I do prefer the taste of the lemon filling from the other recipe I have tried – I will share that recipe with you the next time I make them. Maybe I could mix and match recipes… use this crust and the filling of the other recipe! Experimenting in the kitchen will happen!!
Along with this food collection I have some home exercise routines you can do while your baby is awake and not stirring. The Baby Bjorn is a fabulous accessory! Place baby in this pouch and begin… squats, lunges, squat walks, heel raises, tree pose ya-da-ya-da-ya. Followed by a casual stroll, you and your baby will be happy as clams.
peace. love. paleo.
