Today was another crazy day, but thankfully we all ate and we all ended the day happy. Breakfast in my household is often packed with protein. I want to send Arabella off to school with a full belly, knowing she often has fruit for snack.
I made these Almond Meal, Coconut flour Cinnamon muffins from Elana's Pantry again, with my modifications (coconut oil, honey, add raisins). They were super delicious and quite a hit! Served with our favorite... Bacon! Yikes, it has been the week of bacon with it's reappearance at our Co-op.
I made lunch the night before again. While cooking the stew, I was steaming squash & green beans, and mixing up meatballs.
Today I made a smoothie too. Sometimes I find this necessary, and other days I skip it. To make this particular smoothie I separate the 2 eggs (organic, free-ranged and pastured) and blend the whites in the Vita-Mix. After they have gotten frothy, I add the rest of the ingredients: frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple, and 1/4 cup coconut. Creamy and like ice-cream! That was the first time I used shredded coconut, and I have to say, I am not a fan. Perhaps coconut milk next time.
Dinner was really easy. Grilled organic grass-fed T-bone steaks and grilled asparagus. We also grilled a Buffalo Rib-eye, but I didn't get to try that one. Bone broth was also included with this meal. Tonight, while making dinner, I steamed the beets for lunch tomorrow.
