Paleo Challenge: Day 18

I’m still day(s) behind at this point, but I’m workin’ on it. I woke up this morning (Saturday) around 5:30 and figured I might as well get some things done. Blog posts, notes to friends, emails, weekly log for school …

Anyway, THURSDAY. Long day; left at 7 a.m. and got home after 10 p.m. And Andrew wonders why I was a crab Friday morning…

Breakfast: Two Apple strudel muffins with bacon and a Clem. A heaping for up of kraut as I ran out the door.


Mid-morning: My 25-cent cup of coffee from the ECMC cafe as I did assessments.


Lunch: Salmon on salad, roasted cauliflower. Still didn’t eat the applesauce thing.


Afternoon snack: trail-mix. Did I ever tell what was in it? Dried pineapple and mandarin orange slices (a trader joes find), almonds and dark chocolate.


And this is probably when the intake for the day started going downhill…

Left ECMC and went to a friends’ house to hang out/kill time before book club that evening. No point in driving all the way home to turn around and come all the way back to Buffalo like 30 minutes later. My friend made hummus and had lots of veggies and GF crackers and things for us, which was sweet. We painted our nails and chatted about our rotations.

Dinner: there is always enough food at book club that it can be dinner, so I’ve stopped eating beforehand. There are also 2-3 GF ladies, so I knew the Paleo Pumpkin cookies I brought would be well-received. SO GOOD! Recipe can be found at



I enjoyed lemon-dill hummus (my new favorite!), GF crackers and a bean/corn/avocado mix. For dessert: Paleo pumpkin cookies and chocolate cake made with beets–my first grain in the entire challenge! I thought it was funny that I managed to over-indulge in all these ‘healthy’ foods and treats. The cookies may have been Paleo, but it doesn’t mean they don’t have sugar (honey)!
