Day 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 & 21

Wow! It has been a frustrating week! I purchased a custom domain name from Google and all hell broke loose. Their custom domain setting was broken and it caused my entire blog to be non-functional for a week! I was so stressed about it I did not even realize today is my 22nd day. It is awesome and I feel great. I have unfortunately been eating dark chocolate :( which is not Paleo for the challenge but I have craved and given in to. And the past two days I have had a few dark chocolate almonds that contain some sugar and soy- so shame on me but just because this is not a PERFECT challenge does not mean I will give up until I see this thing through. There have been some awesome meals this past week and I will do my best not only to remember what I have ate but to attempt to put it all on here! So fasten your seat-belts here we go!

I made some Paleo Meatballs in the Crock Pot. They were awesome just like the last time. You can find the recipe here. I added spinach instead of celery and used sweet italian sausage.

Also this week we ate out a lot because we have both been busy. So here is a little picture recap of some of those meals:

 I have also been eating breakfast again. I am just frying a couple of eggs and adding some hot sauce. I have no idea why but have been craving this all day everyday! So I have been nom noming on those for breakfast.

Then I made some Paleo Turkey Chili!!! Yum.

What you need: 
-1 lb of bacon 
-some bacon
-1 red pepper 
-1 yellow pepper 
-1 green pepper 
-1 can of diced tomato 
-1 can tomato sauce
-lots of garlic 

This is very simple- get some butty butter and melt it in a pan. Grab some bacon ( I used like 4 or 5 pieces) cut it up and cook that bacon. While you are cooking that bacon chop up your garlic and peppers.
Next, throw in all the veggies and let them sweat/cook for about 5 min. Then throw in that pound of turkey and let it cook all together.
When the turkey is cooked add the can of tomatoes and the can of tomato sauce and let it all cook together for as long as you can- the longer the better.
Then ENJOY! 

I also made some Paleo Chicken wings. These suckers were delicious but were far from healthy...I want to tweak this recipe to make it healthier before I share all the details but here are some pics.
 But for the Cauliflower we had on the side let me give you that recipe...

Garlic Onion Cauliflower

What you need: 
-1 onion 
-Olive Oil 

Just chop up the onions, the garlic and the cauliflower. Then toss it in some olive oil and let it bake for about 15 min on 350 degrees.

Tonight, we are having breakfast for dinner because I am craving freakin fried eggs again. Oh and last night we had Spaghetti Squash in Meaty Marinara.

So again- sorry for all the confusion but I am back in business!
