Today I cleaned out my fridge, freezer and cupboards. I am the type of person that will eat it if it is here (My friend loved the grocery delivery this afternoon). W had a hard time letting go of the peanut butter and "monkey balls" which is organic gorilla crunch (his fav!!). I have been explaining to him that we are going to eat a little bit different for a bit and that it will make us healthy his response was that he is not sick .. lol. A, being 10, is not a fan of the changes at all he keeps asking me what he is going to eat I told him FOOD.
So today was day 1 of the meal plan and I have to say that I love having it all mapped out for me. I am going to be a bit out of my comfort zone but I think that is great for everyone. Today I tried fennel for the first time and I have never baked beets before, both were a huge hit with the boys!
Breakfast we had apples and grapes (while running late for school) and some coconut milk. Lunch was kale chips and chicken with mixed greens. Supper was grilled garlic flank steak with peppers & onions along with baked beets with fennel and orange slices. Water was with all meals except breakfast. We had a banana for snack and some homemade apple sauce, I feel like we must have eaten more :)
This looked way better in the cookbook but it tasted delicious!!
I am basing the majority of my meal choices around Diane Sanfilippo's meal plans in her book Practical Paleo. This book is so awesome for so many reasons. I went grocery shopping today with a list right of out the book for the meals in the meal plan this week. She has 11 different meal plans and tons of information in this book!
I missed the gym this morning because I was at the grocery store and then the butcher learning about cuts of meat and the different food I am gong to be eating. It really was an informative morning.
So tomorrow is another day and I am hoping that W comes around and stops asking for "monkey balls" and peanut butter :)
