Can someone please point me in the direction of a calendar? I was planning all week to have a little mini St. Patricks Day celebration (and by that just some green food) on Wednesday for the holiday.
Well call me shocked when I am sitting at home blogging away on Tuesday and notice everyone talking about their St. Pattys Day plans. Um, what?! Since when was the 17th on a Tuesday? Here I was thinking that March 17th was always a Wednesday… or maybe that St. Pattys Day always falls on a Wednesday. This isn’t Thanksgiving Andrea, get it together!
Regardless, I tried my best to make March 18th a little more green than the day before.
Starting with Breakfast
I had full intention of making my new favorite breakfast: Veggie Fritters with zucchini, sweet potato and carrot.. but my fridge had other ideas for me. My zucchini went bad so instead of super cute and super green breakfast I had Spicy Tuna Cakes from the Nom Nom Paleo Cookbook with a side of green grapes. Still green, and still delicious!
I reckon if I had made veggie fritters on actual St. Patrick’s Day my zucchini would have still be edible. Dang.
Okay, here we go.. Green!
This is the second time I have ever eaten San Choy Bow, the first time being over a year ago! I was able to impress my San Choy loving boyfriend with this recipe, and shocked the heck out of myself with how yummy and simple this recipe was. Oh, and did I mention healthy?? It’s all vegetables, chicken breast, and coconut aminos!
Dinner aka I’m done with this whole green thing.
Did we eat this recently? I feel like we did.. but here it is again. My very favorite Cauliflower Fried Rice
(recipe soon) recipe here! with shrimp, or prawns, depending on who you are talking to.
Ben actually cooked (overcooked) this meal up for us tonight… but the flavors were right and I appreciated a night of not cooking.
Today is actually day 31 of our Whole30, so you’d think we’d stop eating strict paleo, but NOPE! We are sticking with it until Friday when we head to Sydney to celebrate our accomplishment with Crispy Pork Nachos and Strawberry Watermelon Cake. On this diet we couldn’t eat dessert, but that doesn’t stop me from having what I like to call a “Dinner Extender.” Eaten right after dinner, its a little naturally sweet treat aka a piece of fruit, which allows me to keep my sanity while I can’t have the ice cream calling my name in the freezer.
That ladies and gentlemen is a 1kg mango! And yes, I ate the whole thing!
Do you consider a piece of fruit dessert?
What was the best thing you ate this week?
