End of weekend eats, baby handstands, and a Monday of lettuce wraps…

Sunday: Breakfast was leftover steak and eggs.  Lunch was salami, pickles, peppers, leftover sweet potatoes, and homemade coleslaw of shredded green cabbage, chopped apple, sunflower seeds, mayo, lemon juice, and pepper.  We ran errands all afternoon and ended up at La Salsa before hitting Trader Joe’s.  Besides getting crappy food, eating out with Rowan (the 2 year old) is near to impossible.  The picture of Rowan is our future CrossFitter attempting a handstand on the table… I blame John – he is a little Fragoso for sure… I ordered the Fire Roasted bowl with no rice or beans and it was OK.  Had a bunch of veggies but not enough chicken but I survived.  John also got a bowl and the boys had nachos and corn tortilla quesadillas.  Monday: back to eating really well – weekends can be difficult. Coby made us pancetta and eggs.  Lunch was Thai inspired lettuce wraps.  I mixed almond butter with a touch of Tamari (wheat free soy sauce), a bunch of sesame oil, a tiny tiny tiny bit of honey, and a few drops of hot chili oil.  I smeared this mixture onto iceburg lettuce leaves and topped with turkey lunch meat, chopped up leftover grilled bell peppers, broccolli slaw, and slivered almonds.  Super yum.  Dinner was philly no-cheesesteaks.  I threw into a big pot a bunch of grassfed sliced up tri tip, and a bag of frozen bell peppers and onions from TJ’s and added garlic powder, sea salt, pepper, topatillo sauce, and a little chicken stock and later the boys ate the meat wrapped in lettuce.  I also pressure cooked artichokes.

  1. hey sarah,

    I am a crossfitter in CT and I workout at Crossfit Milford. I found your site through Nicki Volletti’s blog. I just wanted to say thanks for posting all this stuff. I made the brussel sprout with bacon, chicken and veggie dish last night. It was fairly amazing if I do say so myself.

    Please keep it coming.


  2. Rock on Tom! So glad you are liking the site. : )

  3. Hey Sarah,

    I attended Robb Wolf’s CF nutrition cert this weekend and I train at CFGenesis here in Roseville- not too far from you guys! I am planning to come up and visit CF Norcal soon- I’m a CSU Chico Alumn, so any excuse to come visit:o)

    I love your blog! I have kids too and am trying hard to get them gluten/dairy free. They are 7 and 4, so breaking what I thought were “healthy” habits from the past several years has been hard. Yesterday I tried to explain to my son(7) that wheat isn’t healthy- undoing what I have been telling him his whole life!! It’s a challenge to say the least.

    I have a blog too if you want to check it out- I don’t update everyday, but try to once every week or two. I’ll add a link to your blog there :o)

    Anyway, keep up the great blog and ideas- we love them!

  4. Sarah,

    I heard about your blog from Robb Wolf at the CF nutrition cert this weekend. I train at CF Genesis in Roseville, not to far from you. I am a CSUChico alumn so I am hoping to make it back up to the area to see you guys at CF Norcal soon:o)

    I love your blog! I am mother of two (7 and 4) and am trying to get them gluten/dairy free- what a challenge! I’m trying to undo all the “healthy” habits I set for them over the years. Yesterday I tried to explain to my 7yr old why wheat isn’t healthy- let’s just say he was a little confused since his whole life I have been pushing whole wheat everything on him.

    I have a blog too if you are interested. I don’t update daily- usually every week or two with our adventures trying to eat local, in season, paleo/primal diets.

    Anyway, keep up the great blog- we love it!!

    This site is great! Awesome work! Great place for folks to see how this whole paleo thing can work in a family setting! Thanks for doing this!

    I love your site as well. I’ve made the pork tenderloin with catchatori twice and I finished the last of the beef stew with tomato bisque soup last night.

    Both were awesome and easy to make.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  7. Thanks Ben and Patrick! I’m so glad you are enjoying the site!

    What happened to John’s pants?

    Yum. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love artichoke! It’s fantastic with home made Lemon Aoilie (sp?).

    Next, Rowan should try a Fidelity Push Up from that angle. :p
