What’s For Dinner?

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: Turkey Cobb Salads with Homemade Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
Dinner: Paleo Orange Chicken (made extra spicy!) + Roasted Garlic Broccoli + Salad

Lunch: Thai Curry and Coconut Butternut Squash Soup
Dinner: Turkey Burgers (TBD — prob something that goes with avocado) + Balsamic Brussels Sprouts + Salad

Lunch: Turkey Chili with fixins!
Dinner: Paleo Chicken Piccata + Steamed Broccoli + Salad (Yeah, we have a metric ton of broccoli in the fridge this week!)

Lunch: Spinach Salad with Eggs and Bacon + Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
Dinner: Mini Meatloaves + Cauliflower mash + Salad

Lunch: Greek Salads w/ Sarah at Petra (I think it’s Friday, regardless it is one day this week! YAY!)
Dinner: CrossFit Holiday Party — Woot!

Lunch: Brunch
Dinner: Paleo General’s Chicken with Cauliflower Fried Rice

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
