Eating Paleo

One week down!  Other than not being able to eat potato chips, cookies, bread, cheese, pastries…I am feeling good.  Below is what I have planned to eat this week.

Vegetable Omelet

  • 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of chopped peppers various colors
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeded and sliced
  • Left over cooked pork chorizo, chopped and add to omelet before folding
  • 1/2 Orange

The omelet was seasoned with red pepper, garlic powder and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Shrimp Fried Cauliflower

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 bunch scallions, green and white parts, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded carrots
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 2 eggs, scrambled
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tblsn Olive oil

Cut flowers off of the head.  Use a chopper to reduce the flowers until it resembles rice.  You can use any type of vegetables in your fried rice.  Saute scallions  and carrots, medium heat, for about 5 to 7 minutes and then add the ‘rice’, high heat, until you brown most of the cauliflower.

In a separate pan or steamer, prepare your shrimp.  I sprinkled the paprika, garlic and onion powder over them to prepare them for the stir fry.  Once cooked place to the side.

You can scramble the egg in a separate pan or cook it with the ‘rice’ while you are browning.  To do this just move everything to one side of the pan and pour the scrambled egg mixture in and cook.

Once cauliflower is browned add in the egg and shrimp stir everything together and it is complete.  I did purchase a hot chili oil that I lightly sprinkled over the rice for an added kick and moisture.

Meatloaf and Vegetables

  • 1 pound ground beef, you can use what you like
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce, no salt added
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 1/4 yellow onion chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion sliced
  • 1 tblsn garlic powder, thyme, oregano, celery salt
  • 2 of each, red, yellow and green peppers sliced lengthwise
  • 1 tspn olive oil

Mix together: ground beef, tomato sauce, garlic, thyme, oregano and celery salt.  Mold into the shape of meatloaf.  Spread the tomato past over the top.  I did sprinkle a bit of the oregano, garlic and parsley on the top.  Oven at 375, 45-60 minutes.

For the vegetables, I just added some olive oil to the pan to saute all the pepper and onion for about 15 minutes.  Long enough to take some of the crunch out.  As I am posting this, it occurred to me that I forgot to add the broccoli into the mix.  So this will be another side to this meal!

For my snacking moments I prepared more cranberry/orange scones, sliced apples, oranges, unsalted pistachios and almonds.

CrossFit workouts will begin tomorrow as Sunday is my day of rest.
