I am exhausted today! But the rest of me feels pretty good. The headache went away for now.
Lunch was out at a restaurant. I had a large mixed green salad with onions and tomatoes, blue cheese crumbles, and medium rare steak sliced across the top. SO GOOD. I got a Balsamic vinaigrette dressing on the side. My snack today was a square of super dark chocolate with 1/2 Tbsp almond butter spread on top of it. It is almost dinnertime, but I am not hungry yet, so I am just going to sip some hot broth that I made yesterday. I was reading about the many virtues and health benefits of bone broth (full of minerals and joint-supporting compounds) so I made a batch yesterday. It was easy: I just roasted a couple of free range beef soup bones until they were browned, then stuck them in the crock pot with boiling water and a splash of apple cider vinegar. I left it on high all day, from 8 am to about 7 pm. Then I added some chopped carrots, onions, celery and a couple bay leaves, black pepper and sea salt and let it cook until 9pm. I strained it and refrigerated it for use this week. I figure it can't hurt, with my arthritis and other joint issues, and might even help!
I think I will have a big spinach salad with sliced hard boiled egg, bacon, chicken, and avocado when I do get hungry for dinner.
For you who eat Primal or Paleo, what are your favorite meals? I'd love some ideas for breakfast especially. If you have an awesome recipe, please let me know or you can link to it in the comments. Thanks!
