So this week we are back to a more strict Paleo menu. This means a whole lot of:
A quick note about why I generally don’t include breakfast in my menus, since a reader asked. It is for a few reasons:
*I enjoy dinner leftovers for breakfast sometimes
*I make smoothies on occasion
*It’s generally a game time decision
*If I’m not working out I generally do a bit of Intermittent Fasting in the morning since I eat lunch around 11:30 usually
Intermittent Fasting (which for me means skipping the traditional breakfast) usually works phenomenally when I am not eating sugar. (I ALWAYS eat breakfast post workout on the mornings I CrossFit though, don’t worry!)
Here is a little background on it (if you’re interested) just so you don’t think I’m skipping meals willy-nilly. There is actually some rhyme + reason behind it and it generally works well when my blood sugar is super stable (ie: when I’m eating a pretty strict Primal/Paleo diet).
But having the sugar creep back in over the past few weeks means I’m very hungry in the morning and then in addition when I don’t plan breakfast I inevitably do the “What’s lurking around the office that I can eat?” scavenge and well, obviously this has been bad news lately. While I may IF a bit this week, I’ve also stocked up on some eggs to hard boil, some berries and some bacon I’ve cooked for easy grabbing, so I may work some breakfast in this week a little more since I’m getting back on the wagon. We’ll see.
Anyway, here’s what we’re eating in our neck of the woods:
Lunch: Spinach Salad with Eggs and Bacon + Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
Dinner: Mini Meatloaves + Cauliflower mash + Salad
Dinner: Paleo General’s Chicken with Cauliflower Fried Rice
What’s cooking in your neck of the woods this week?
