For the first time EVER I have been getting emails, and texts from friends and family, and even people who just read the blog saying how I have inspired them.
You guys are cray.
YOU inspire ME.
I had so much fun with the fitness giveaway it will def not be my last.
Don't forget to enter the V.S. giveaway!
I also realized that my training plan from yesterday is a little confusing. The spreadsheet is what I plan on doing as far as running is concerned. The day breakdown is on-top of the running.
Alright enough chit chat I know why you guys are really here!
It's HEYO PALEO TUESDAY!!!!!
I have to admit I have not been fully paleo, but I will also admit when I eat shit I feel like shit.
I am back on the wagon this week and I meal prepped and I'm READY.
Meal prep is huge.
I also realized that if all I do is try to "paleo-fy" sweets I am going to fail.
I need to cut back on the sweets all together.
Obviously coconut flakes and almond butter are not going to taste like a Reese's and I'm going to get mad, and go out and buy a Reese, and while I'm at the store I will probably buy a soda, and some toasted caramel coconut cupcakes to eat on the way home.
So the recipes I have for you this week are ones I tried before I came to this conclusion.
I tried Honey Merengiues, and Coconut flour pancakes.
I don't like to listen to directions.
I'm a rule breaker.
The result of most of my cooking expenditures show this.
Oh you want me to use a silicone baking sheet lightly sprayed with coconut oil.
That's the same as my cheap-o cooking sheet sprayed to hell with Pam right?
Oh the recipe calls for 4 eggs but I only feel like cracking 3 so just go with it?
Meringues are pretty easy and are kinda fail proof... unless you are me and you spend 10 min whipping egg whites from a carton before reading the carton that clearly says "Not recommended for meringues"
Once I started over they whipped up right away.
I pipped them onto the cookie sheets (instead of the called for silicon baking whatever) in cute little dollops.
They cook low and slow, and then they are supposed to sit overnight.
I checked them after an hour and they were turning brown.
so I took them out, and let them sit for about 20 min. Then proceeded to eat them, like all of them.
They did not come cleanly off the cookie sheet,
and apparently our dogs thought they were for them.
I loved them.
So did the kids.
I want to keep working on these.
Verdict: Keeper for sure
This recipe is a direct product of trying to "paleofy" something I love, which is turn guarantees a fail.
There's something about pancakes that don't have sugar...
They aren't sweet.
The ingredients are as follows.
3 tablespoons coconut floor
Coconut oil for frying.
That's it, but for some reason, I felt the need to make this small ingredient list even smaller.
I didn't feel like cracking 4 eggs.
I only wanted to crack 3.
I also wanted to add blueberries
So I did.
and these were disgusting.
I couldn't even finish them.
I gave them to the dogs, and they didn't even eat them....
Verdict: NEVER EVER AGAIN
