Back on Track

I know I have been saying I need to get back on track- and I have been trying but again, last night, watching UNLV lose to Cal I decided to have some bar food. Which included beer, fries, wings & queso. If I wouldn't be embarrassed I would post a picture of how I look this morning. I had 2 beers and ate a TON of crappy food and I woke up exhausted, with huge bags under my eyes and overall looking like hell. And you know what- I just realized something-  (my hubby will laugh at me for this thought because he thinks that I think that Paleo effects ALL aspects of life (which it does)) but I am CONVINCED that my ankle hurts as bad as it does this morning because I ate like sh*t last night. No joke. Sprained it Sunday- hurt really bad. Mon, Tues, Weds and yesterday- virtually ZERO pain. Inflammation went down, bruising began, slept like a baby, stopped taking Motrin- worked out. It was seeming like a miraculous recovery (still can't put weight on it without boot) until this morning. What a coincidence. I eat crap and drink gluten and here I am- looking like hell with a REALLY sore ankle. I know I sound cray-cray but if you eat Paleo you understand where I am coming from. If not- then my only advice is TRY IT FOR 30 DAYS! That's it. You can do it. And if you TRULY do Paleo for 30 days and come back feeling worse than you did when you started then I will personally send you a loaf a bread and a bag of your favorite chips. All right let me jump off my soapbox real quick and give you a recipe for some Mini Blue Cheese Meatloafs I made that were delish.

Mini Blue Cheese Paleo Meatloafies

What you need:
- 1 lb grass fed ground beef
-Blue cheese
-2/3 cup almond flour
-1 egg 
-Tomato Paste (1/2 of can) 
- S & P 
-A muffin tin 

All you do is mix the ingredients in a bowl then grease your muffin tin (I used coconut oil) and bake these little guys at 350-375 (depending on your oven) for 15 minutes!! I added a little coat of tomato paste on the top before baking. I served them with some shaved brussel sprouts and Against the Grain garlic bread.

I have been gimping around my kitchen making up new recipes out of pure boredom so today I tried something I saw on Pinterest but made it my own. It is so easy.

Bacon and Egg Cups

What you need:
-6 eggs 
-6 pieces of bacon 
-S & P 

I will let the visuals do all the talking- except bake them at 375 for 14-17 min (depending on how you like the yolk).

These little suckers were awesome. As a matter of fact I might go have one now :)
