Friday morning I woke up at 5am. Typically, I would take the dog out and then go back to bed. But yesterday I was feeling well rested and decided getting up 1.5 hours early was a good idea. <— it was! I cleaned, took Emmie on a long walk and made breakfast! I love breakfast but I don’t take the time to sit down and enjoy it in the morning. Usually I eat it on the way to work. (it being cereal – from a plastic cup) But not this morning! This morning I decided to enjoy breakfast on the porch. In a “get-up-early-be-productive-and-do-something-good-for-myself” mood I was in, paleo pancakes were a must!
The Paleo Diet is also known as the caveman diet. Essentially, what cavepeople ate, is Paleo approved. The Ultimate Paleo Diet Food List is a great source for the dos and don’t of Paleo. I made a very yummy Thai Red curry Spaghetti Squash with Chicken dish that was specifically Paleo friendly.
- Eggs – packed with protein, omega-3 fats and vitamin! <— ok, I didn’t go with cage-free organic eggs, but eggs > no eggs, right?
- Bananas – hello potassium!
- Cinnamon – The smell boosts brain functioning… CPA is 6 days away!
The ratio should be 1:1 but if you have a big banana (like I did), I just used 1 banana and 2 eggs. The banana makes the batter thicker so play it by ear…
I love cooking with coconut oil! I lightly coated the pan with coconut oil to give the pancake a crispier outside.
Cook the pancakes in the frying pan and wah-la! Breakfast served!
For dinner, I made grilled steak kabobs and used the Weber Grill Chicago Steak Seasoning. Oh my goodness… so delicious! I visited the Weber Grill in Chicago (which was A-MAZING) so when I saw this seasoning in Publix, I was sold! I coated the petite tender medallions beef shoulder pieces with olive oil and the seasoning. I must say, that was a great decision!
What’s better than grilled steak? Grilled steak AND grilled veggies!
What did you eat healthy this weekend?
