Fajitas anyone? . That is the greatest thing Caleb grills and knowing we are so close to him being home makes my heart sing! . In the meantime, I will gladly take the $5 peppered fajita meat from @krogerco.
Hoping to look at this week the way Rosie looks at this treat. 💕 . This week’s goals: 👟 Hit my steps every day. 🥬 Get all of my greens in (hello $1.99 bagged collards). ⌨️ Finish three of the 40 drafted blog posts I have waiting 🙈. 😴 Focus on my sleep schedule. . Have you thought about this week and all that you hope to achieve!?
This week, I was introduced to Pappas BBQ brisket breakfast taco and it was value. . While I’m sure eating it like a taco is fun, turning it into a brisket taco bowl is more fun! Topped with fresh cilantro, onion, cracked black pepper, and @sietefoods habanero sauce that I will never live without again. . Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
Hunkering down and preparing for the storms with the most comforting bowl of goodness, cauliflower gnocchi and meat sauce. . A little tip for the meal preps out there: try bringing your dishes back to “life” by adding a fresh ingredient or two. To liven this sauce up, I added 1/4th of fresh garlic and cracked black pepper. It not only did the trick but made it even more tasty! . Stay dry and safe, friends!
It just doesn’t get any better than ceviche on a hot day. Hello, humidity. Houston has NOT missed you.
Hello, @dishsociety! YOU. ARE. BEAUTIFUL. . Today we welcomed a new gal to our work team and let me tell you, lunch was as a dream. First impression did not disappoint as this window-tastic place is popping with friendly faces eager to greet and “thank you”! 😍 . Lettuce wraps, corn pico on the side (I wanted to see what it looked like 🙊), and extra Serrano @yellowbirdsauce! This flavor has cane sugar in it but can easily be omitted to fit your preference!
Mondays are for the birds but what makes them easier is knowing that I can pop home at lunch, throw together a hearty lunch, and finish the work day strong. . Today’s lunch consisted of already cooked ground beef I defrosted from the freezer, 1/4ish of a sweet potato, fresh cilantro, cabbage mix, and salsa. . It doesn’t have to be difficult! Have a great week!
Sundays are for sunny walks with Rosie. 🐶
[QUESTION] All who have skinned a jicama and proceeded to create the most uneven “slices” ever at one point, say “I”. . Additionally, those of us who still make our own mayo, sauces, and condiments, say “I squared”! . I’ll never forget those first “paleo” months. I was so full of excitement, motivation, and determination. Every meal I cooked I loved and every meal after that left me inspired. Inspired to recreate, inspired to pass all of those “good feelings” along to others, and inspired to create my own repertoire of recipes and wellness. Anyone else? 🙋🏻♀️ . Flash forward a few years and here I stand.. completely bored. FINALLY, it hit me (well, Caleb spoke it to me), “GO BACK THE BASICS, KELLY”. The roots! I mean, that’s what sparked my interest initially back in 2015 so why haven’t I thought of that? 🤯 So here I stand this week, taco-ing it up with my jicama tortillas. Sure, these are a step up from “the basics” but let me tell you, reaching back into those initial swaps and dishes has inspired me once again. If you’re like me and bored out of your mind, try reaching back into those initial Paleo or Whole30 recipes to find that motivation and excitement. Example: I think it’s been 3 years since I last made grilled chicken piccata. NOW, IT’S ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT. . QUESTION: What was one of the FIRST recipes you ever made when embarking on a grain free, clean, Paleo, Whole30, or even keto journey?
This Wednesday is feeling like a Monday! If you’re in a pinch for time on the craziest of weeks, this baby came together with the last of ingredients in the fridge and is totally going to make its appearance again. . Quick buttery skillet shrimp 1 tablespoon ghee or Grassfed butter 1/4 small onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 pound shrimp 2 slices @applegate ham, diced (or their W30 bacon, cooked) Handful of fresh spinach Salt Pepper . Rinse and dry shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Warm skillet: Heat ghee. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for about 1 minute. Add shrimp evenly and cook until bottom side is lightly charred/ browned, flip, and add ham and spinach. Continue to cook until shrimp is cooked through. Stir skillet together to finish wilting spinach and to incorporate ham, onions, and garlic. . Serves 2, technically.
Breakfast. The best start to the day. 🌻🍳
There’s something peaceful about having breakfast and lunch set and ready to cross “go”.
Monday, I crushed you. Tuesday, I am coming for you. . Today I had a lot of feels. First, I was super emotional about how delicious my breakfast was (🐷🍳🥬). Then “professional life” hit and my brain got all twisted in thought (🧮📊🥀). Next thing I knew I was trying to watch General Hospital but the recording was all wacky and I completely missed Ava asking Scotty to be her pretend man candy! I MEAN, WHAT’S UP MONDAY? . Finally, after happy crying to all of the American Idol finalists, I picked myself off the couch, forced my way into a sports bra, and did 40 minutes of happiness! . Calling a workout “happiness” is a lie but squats give you a peachy tooshie which leads to confidence and confidence means more smiles and smiles make other people smile and when other people smile.... my life has meaning. 🍑😁 . So. Goodbye, Monday. Thanks for stopping by. Side note: Praise the sweet people that let you turn their spare bedroom into a storage unit, workout studio, “photography room” and walk in closet. Those people are the real Monday MVPs. (*cough parents cough*)
Easter. My most favorite holiday. Happy day, all! 🐇🥚🐣
