Breakfast this morning started last night.
About 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk with 1/2 cup mixed berries. Left in the fridge to soak.
This morning I dumped the berry mix in a bowl and topped it with toasted walnuts and coconut flakes. This is so good and refreshing! Plus I had two eggs scrambled in coconut oil.
LB does the same thing every morning.
He eats his own breakfast since I feed him first...
Then he climbs on the table and sits in front of me to see what I have. He almost always eats a portion of my breakfast. He could easily be a paleo kid. I still haven't researched that enough.
Gym: Rest day! Whooo hoo! It was much needed.
We spent the majority of our day messing with paleo mayo.
I followed Melissa's recipe from Well Fed but could not get it to emulsify. I'm a pretty good cook. I wouldn't say I'm great but I can always get things figured out. This mayo was beyond frustrating!
After the fifth try we finally got it.
The directions said to put the blender on medium. Well we used the vitamix. Medium in a vitamix actually heats food. It was melting it every time.
We turned the vitamix down to two and finally got it! Holy yum. I will never ever buy store mayo again.
Lunch: was unpictured again. What's my deal?! We snacked through lunch. Mostly deli turkey dipped in that mayo! We did have some veggies too.
Grass fed NY strips with herb butter! 1/2 cup grass fed butter, 1T dried chives, 1T fresh rosemary, 1 grated garlic clove, 1t balsamic vinegar, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. You could easily use any herbs you have. It was SO good.
Have you ever really failed at a recipe?
