Paleo Challenge: Day 9

We’re about to start a movie, so I’ll make this short and sweet.

Breakfast: I tried the ‘coconutty’ porridge, made with almond butter, unsweetened coconut, coconut milk and maple syrup. Pretty good, although the ‘large serving’ wasn’t all that large and lacked protein.

Mid-morning snack: I chose to stay home to get some ‘to-do’ items checked off the list instead of going to kickbox, and found I was hungry around 10:30. I mixed up some frozen raspberries and a drizzle of maple syrup on plain homemade yogurt.

Lunch: I met a friend downtown for lunch and we ended up at the Hilton Garden Inn restaurant, as she works inside the building and baby, it’s cold outside. I got the tomato soup and a Cobb salad with balsamic dressing. I honestly didn’t even notice I was eating the cheese until I was two bites from being done. Paleo-fail, but everything else was right on.

I had a very full afternoon with a trip to campus to meet my advisor and turn in my application for graduation (!!!), and while I packed a gym bag anticipating I might go straight to spin at 4:30, the timing just didn’t work out. I was leaving school way too early to hit the gym, but by the time I got home I didn’t have enough time to do anything productive before I’d have to leave again. So, I decided to cut my losses, make a cup of coffee and sit at the computer and tackle more of the to-do list.

Dinner: I made Chinese 5-Spice lettuce cups with cilantro-lime cauli-rice. Pretty good! Cauli-rice is my new favorite thing. Simply grate and sauté!

After dinner, Andrew and I ran an errand and then decided to rent a movie. Well, this time it was Andrew’s turn to cheat. I talked him out of ordering pizza, but just barely. He’s currently digging into a Luigi’s Italian Ice (so much for trying to avoid refined sugar) and has a french bread pizza heating up in the toaster oven. I chose the most Paleo options at Tops that I could: Black Cherry Greek froyo and super dark chocolate.
