Day 2- Easier...

Day 2 was much easier than day 1. I am giving up blogging ON the days, and going to do it the next day or a few days later, so I can really assess how the day went.

Day 2 was on a Sunday, and it was Kurt's day off. We started the day with leftover Breakfast Cupcakes that we had frozen, and the kids requested more eggs- so we scrambled some of those too. Hungry boys!!!

When snack time rolled around Harrison wanted peanut butter, Carter wanted apples- we gave each child half an apple with some peanut butter, and they dipped their way to happiness! They really enjoyed it! Next time, we will try almond butter.

For lunch we took organic salad greens, topped them with warmed leftover chicken from our roasted chicken, and drizzled a homemade olive oil based dressing on top. The dressing was AMAZING. Olive oil, capers, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, fresh rosemary, and a few other ingredients made our salads ANYTHING but boring! Carter and Harrison had salad too!

Dinner was DELICIOUS. We had steak with bell peppers and zucchini, with a side of "rice." This was not really rice- it was actually an AMAZING recipe that used cauliflower in a way that created a rice-like texture. Yeah... I was nervous... but it smelled so good... and when we tasted it we all were in shock! SO GOOD! Seriously, the Everyday Paleo book's recipes thus far have all been GREAT! (I did omit the shrooms tho... I am eating fish... one day I will tackle shrooms... but today is not that day).

At the end of the day Kurt and I each had a slight headache. We indulged on mango with blueberries drizzled with coconut milk and topped with shredded coconut. Drinking lots of water. Doing well!
