Day 11, 12 & 13

Wow! It has been a busy week. I will start with Thursday. Thursday we had Panera for lunch. I got a bowl of Vegan Tomato Soup without croutons. I got an apple on the side and had a handful of plantain chips. I have been doing a bad job these past few days of cooking- which has resulted in me not eating a lot- which is BAD. When doing Paleo you have to make a choice when there isn't food available- eat something non-Paleo or don't eat. I have not wanted to ruin this challenge so I have chosen not to eat when I do not have something left over. It is completely my fault and is due 100% to my lack of planning. So tomorrow is a new day and I am ready to get organized and make a meal plan. Anyways- I got sidetracked. Thursday night we went to a BBQ place called Judge Beans. I got some smoked chicken with a side of guacamole and some sweet potato fries. It was delicious.
To my Cali friends- how funny is the menu? It says- "If you're a vegetarian...go back to California" If only they knew how many Paleo people lived in Cali! On Friday I woke up and had a little pathetic breakfast of a couple clementines and some trail mix. By the way- when choosing trail mix check the ingredients. I was shocked to see how much sugar and other crap was added to my ex-favortie trail mix. During the day I went to Whole Foods for that awesome grass fed beef sale. I got almost 5lbs for 24 bucks!! I was excited. I ran out of time for lunch so I had a juice with beets, cucumbers, watermelon and lemon. It was pretty good- but I was starving so anything would have tasted good at that point. Friday for dinner we had mexican! I had a this yummy chicken dish that had peppers. onions and bacon. I also always try to have a bag of plantain chips in my purse so when we go somewhere with chips and salsa (my favorite combination in the world) I can join in.  
                                    

Today (Saturday) we woke up and went truck shopping. We were gone all day and had to eat out a lot :( For brunch I had some eggs and bacon. I couldn't use ketchup because the kind at the breakfast place has high fructose corn syrup aka poison. We shopped alllll day and I ran to the store on the way home and grabbed some ground beef (I know...the grass fed good stuff was frozen) some Terra sweet potato chips, jalepenos, avocados, salsa and cilantro. I think we all know where I am going with this- I made a version of those amazing Paleo nachos. THEY WERE AWESOME! I pretty much followed the recipe from the last post but I did not add cheese and I added hot rotel and taco seasoning to my beef instead of the spices they had. These nachos were the bomb.com. Then we ended the night about 5 minutes ago (late night eating=bad) with some burgers. I had a lettuce wrapped one. Overall. this hasn't been my best last 3 days, but hey- I can only go up from here!
