Back on the Paleo wagon :)

Friday I discussed with my doctor (for baby #2) that I was needing something to limit food intake, and still be plenty healthy & full for the peanut. She was not concerned however I am because all the pounds we put on we must get off eventually and well I don't like the way extra pounds look or how they make me feel. We decided upon lean meats and high fiber... So back onto the Paleo/Gluten free path...

truth be told I should be doing this anyway since I have Crohn's disease and processed foods and wheat cause inflammation.. so here are some recipes I made this week:

Coconut Pancakes:

Not a huge fan just yet, but it was the first time I made them, and I ate them , so.. :)

Spaghetti Squash and Italian meatballs:

I also made extra and froze them so I have a quick lunch or two (if I choose) throughout the week!

Sweet potato buns:

I made these to go with my smoked burgers and smoked pork (pulled pork sliders)

both should be YUM!

This afternoon I hope to make homemade fruit roll-ups, if I can get the energy.. the baby has been draining me of any energy...

I hope you can try some of these recipes :)!

Fantastic Juice on DAY ONE (Juice/Paleo/HEALTHY!)

1 - bunch of kale, peel the middles out and rinse
2 - tangelos peeled
4 - red delicious apples


So confession - I drank 6 of the ounces for breakfast with an egg... then for lunch used the kale juice to make a fruit smoothie with 1/2 protein serving. It was also delicious!

Juice on!
