Paleo Easter, Day 19

This weeks organic produce from the co-op.  I spent $60, which included a donation toward a family box for a co-op member that couldn’t afford a box this week.  I spent another $5.00 at pick up adding on more oranges. Remember that carrot craving I was having. . . well, I bought six pounds. . […]

Day 15, What’s up Doc?

I’m craving carrots.  Hence the title. 🙂  Too bad we finished off our TJ’s stash and the produce co-op doesn’t arrive until tomorrow. Darn this no extra shopping trips, thing! This weeks produce haul (once again all organic) cost $60.  $7.00 of that was directly to help with needy boxes, so our food was $53. […]

Paleo Treats

Tonight called for something sweet. . . I haven’t baked anything in about a month, I think my kids are feeling deprived!  So, tonight I made cookies.  Yum-o. I used Elana’s original recipe.  In it, she notes that Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour won’t work.  Well, that’s what I used because it’s what I had […]

What Babies Want, Babies Get

Pregnant bellies are finicky.  After reading about early pregnancy food aversions all over the internet, I know I am not alone in this. Upon waking this morning, I had a banana.  I was hoping it would quell the queasies and maybe I’d be able to get those eggs in. . . no such luck. Around […]

Sugar Detox Day 10 and Kids Treats

Breakfast was plain scrambled eggs (same ole). Lunch today-  Doesn’t that look DELICIOUS?!?!  It was.  The bottom is 2/3 of a “loaf” of quick bread from Paleo Indulgences.  I toasted it and topped with butter.  Then I added over medium eggs and sliced up a bit of hand made marinated cheese (spicy!).  In the end, […]

Lunch Box Ideas! Sugar Detox Day 8 Wrap Up

So, I’m already a slacker and didn’t post our Sugar Detox update for day 8 (yesterday)  oops.  Blame it on the pregnancy hormones making me so tired I barely made it through dinner.  Speaking of dinner, Daddy Grok’s parents and Grandma joined us for dinner.  Grandma lives 3 hours away and we haven’t seen her […]

Sugar Detox Day 6

Daddy Grok kindly refrained from stepping on the scale today. 🙂 He’s still fighting the urge to munch, but otherwise feeling pretty good.  Considering all the crap food he consumed before we started this, it’s shocking. Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can share with you here- Mama Grok is expecting […]

Sugar Detox Day 5

Daddy Grok is down 9lbs.  Are you kidding me? That said, with our growing family. . . Mama Grok shouldn’t lose weight. Moving on.  Breakfast today was scrambled eggs.  The kids added fruit.  I had to run out the door for labwork, so I skipped my veggies but grabbed a banana for a blood sugar […]

Sugar Detox Day 4 & Cheap Eats!

Today we’ve completed day 4 of the 21 Day Sugar Detox.  We both weighed in this morning. . . Daddy Grok has lost SEVEN pounds.  That’s ridiculous!  Mama Grok has lost one pound.  Huh. . . Daddy Grok is feeling good. . . no headaches, grogginess, or lethargy.  Mama has felt good from the get […]
