(One of which is sharing posts with other fitbloggers, like Scott over at Your Inner Skinny, where I guest blogged yesterday about my experience with Paleo. Read it here!)
Many of these new recipes came straight from Practical Paleo...
While that was cooking, I broke out the food processor to make Sweet Potato Pancakes, which were out of this world, as so many "sweet potato" things are :)
The timing couldn't be more perfect. I finished preparing, cooking, and packaging the pancakes just a few minutes before the chicken was ready. Success!
This week, I drew on three other Practical Paleo recipes that I had yet to try:
Swirly Crustless Quiche:
Roasted Rosemary Figs
And, at last, Spaghetti Squash Bolognese.
Holy COW this one was gooooooooood. I looked forward to every leftover dish I could squeeze out of it!!! Aka, packed lunch, below.
That night, I also cooked up two pieces of wild salmon and stir-fried very green broccoli.
This whole plan and prepare thing ain't so bad! Once I got cooking, it was a nice way to spend my Sunday afternoon. Then, during the busy week, I never have to think about what's for dinner or worry about having to go pick something up. It's all there, in the fridge, ready to go!
So... What'd I eat today?
I fell into good habits with my meals all cooked and ready to go.
(Not So) Swirly Crustless Quiche
Cut a piece of this each morning for instant, healthy breakfast!

and an apple

Still eating my greens!
And that's What I Ate! What did you eat?
