Days 21, 22 & 23

Day 21- Sunday. Today we woke up and had a big brunch full of leftovers. It had some spaghetti squash, some chicken mixed with onions and who knows what else! We also had some blueberries and watermelon with it. Sunday night we headed to our friend's BBQ and pool party. We had some DELICIOUS food. We snacked on plantain chips with salsa & guacamole before dinner. For dinner we had some steaks and BBQ chicken. There was beer there- and no we did not have any. Or any of the gelato, or cookies, or reeses bites from Trader's Joes...BUT we did eat full Paleo :)

Day 22- Monday. Today we woke up and had scrambled eggs. Then we headed to the box for the noon class and this is what happened :(. Needless to say with tears on BOTH hands I was unable to cook lunch or dinner. So for lunch we headed to Zankou Chicken and got a chicken and a big salad to go. Since we have had so much extra energy lately because of Paleo we decided we would start 2 a days at the box a few times a week. Yes, I said yes 2 a days, and yes we are crazy.   (Sorry, bad angle for the chicken, but I was so hungry I didn't care). 
For dinner we rewarded ourselves after a tough 2 a day with some lettuce wrapped burgers and chilli, cole slaw sweet potato fries (you read that correctly) from a place called Dog Haus. We love the fact they have sweet potato fries as an option and no beans in their chili. 

Day 23- Tuesday. Today I woke up a little late and ate a banana on my way to work. For lunch I had leftover Zankou Chicken. I am ending my internship soon so the staff threw a going away party for myself and another intern. This party included an array of mouth watering desserts. Such as cookies, cake and brownies. I am proud to say I did not have one bite of any of these wonderful little desserts. I got home and we headed straight to the box. We came back exhausted. So I threw together something I shall call- Garlicky Chicken in Tomato Sauce. Due to lack of ingredients in my fridge- that is exactly what it sounds like! 

What you will need for this recipe: 
2 boneless, skinless, hormone free chicken breasts 
7 cloves of garlic 
splash of olive oil 
Can of tomato sauce 
Spices to your liking (I used basil, salt and crushed red pepper). 

This was VERY easy to make. Matt cut the chicken into small hunks and I sauteed it in a sauce pan with about 7 cloves of garlic (we loooove garlic) that were coarsely chopped. Once the chicken was cooked I drained some of the extra water and added about 3/4 of a can of tomato sauce. I then added a generous amount of crushed red pepper, basil and a little salt. On the side we had some brussel sprouts from Trader Joe's. I threw them in the Microwave for 3 min then added some butter before serving. This wasn't a half bad dinner for a how quickly we threw it together! It actually tasted pretty darn good.
