Today was a delicious day! I hope that by keeping this journal I will inspire others with delicious healthy meals that are easy to make and make you feel fantastic while being incredibly healthy!
I started off with paleo pancakes, my girls adore these and eat them with berries on top. Seriously, I have made countless paleo pancake recipes and these are by far THE best! Light, fluffy, nutty, yummy!!
1 apple peeled and diced
1/4 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
Put the bananas and apple into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Then add the rest of the ingredients and process for 45 seconds. These seem to cook at a lower temperature so I set the griddle at 275F. Grease griddle with extra virgin coconut oil. These make about 18 pancakes the size of silver dollars.
For breakfast I had about 6 pancakes that were about 2 inches in diameter with a few fresh raspberries and 2 cups of decaf coffee with a little dab of extra virgin coconut oil stirred in.
For lunch I had a scrambled egg and a gigantic salad with a grilled chicken breast dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette (just equal parts extra virgin olive oil and organic balsamic vinegar).
Dinner included a grass fed beef hamburger complete with patty on lettuce with tomato, pickle, mustard, roasted butternut squash and onions and mushrooms fried in extra virgin olive oil.
Oh, I also had 4 squares of a Lindt 90% chocolate bar and now I'm having a gorgeous glass of cab to wind down the day.
Told you nursing has made me famished almost all the time!!
And for movement. I completed a kettlebell workout. I started the Skogg kettlebell system and I'm loving it so far! It's a 12 week program and I'll keep you updated on my results. So excited about this! I'm so incredibly out of shape now!
So, that was my day, until tomorrow!
