I made pork chili instead of beef chili this week.
Eggplant fries instead of sweet potato fries
Marvelous paleo pumpkin pancakes from Practical Paleo that came out better this time
My Pharrell station on Pandora yielded this amazing song. Most marvelous station ever.
I had to go to my second job and picked up some meat from Trader Joe’s. Ready to eat! Not. I was supposed to heat it. Oh well.
Saturday morning boot camp then baking ginger spice muffin tops from Healthful Pursuit.
And a giant batch of marvelous sweet potato pancakes with maple coconut butter. I ate this Saturday and Sunday, and there’s enough for tomorrow.
After attempting more homework and falling asleep, I drove out to meet up my friends Andrew and Denton. We headed into Venice.
The boardwalk was crazy, but I dug the vibe in other parts of Venice.
Dinner at Oscar’s Cerveteca
Marvelous Coolhaus Ice Cream in Culver City was reminiscent of my San Francisco ice cream experience. I got the dirty mint and ChocoVivo salted chocolate. I didn’t realize there was so much so I only had the ChocoVivo – I’m usually not a chocolate ice cream fan! The mint was refreshing with fresh specks of mint and tons of chocolate chips.
Some of my semi-Paleo grocery shopping for the week:
- Sweet potatoes
- Paleo bread
- Coconut oil
- Boar’s Head buffalo chicken
- Turkey bacon
- Dark chocolate
- Pine nuts for dolmas, but I can’t find grape leaves!
- Ginger, cardamon, nutmeg
I finished up a big assignment and fell asleep for a couple of hours. So I’m still up, 6 A.M. CrossFit is not a possibility and I’m sleeping in. Not the best way to start the week…
