Being on this Paleo challenge feels like a constant test. I made my little people some waffles for breakfast. I wanted to eat them and normally I would but obviously these are NOT on the list because they taste fantastic and they have butter and syrup. Instead I had scrambled eggs and bacon.
Then off to Sam’s Club we went and as soon as we walked in the door there is this huge display!
1 tbs minced garlic
salt & pepper (to taste)
parsley (for color)
* mix together roll out on plastic wrap place sliced Avocado in the middle then roll into a cylinder) make sure all avocado is covered with meat.
bake in oven @ 350* for 20 min flip bake another 15 min
Makes 2-3 servings.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 cups of almond milk (or other milk of your choice)
- Tablespoon of honey (more or less, to taste)
- Handful of ice
Toss one cup of milk, avocado, ice and a bit of the sweet stuff into a blender or Magic Bullet. Gradually add more milk until you have the right consistency, and more honey until you have the right balance of flavors. That recipe didn’t work out for me at all. I can’t use honey! I added a banana, a hand full of almonds and used vanilla flavored almond milk.
It’s Sunday and I had to cook up an egg before church and had that meat loaf for lunch and then we went to a birthday party! There I was surrounded by chocolate chip cookies, brownies, cupcakes, pizza, cheese dip & chips and lots of candy. Talk about HARD! My kids had a free for all. I mean they just ate and ate. I felt sort of like a jerk, sorry no yummy goodness for me I’m doing the Paleo challenge. Whatever! Any way I had to have something sweet after being surrounded by all that so I went for Heather Jackson’s
Mango Ice cream recipe:
cut up and pureed 2 mangos
add 1/2 cup almond milk and freeze
I had to modify the recipe because all I had were frozen mangos. Maybe they aren’t as sweet. I had to doctor the recipe and add vanilla flavored almond milk to make it sweeter and I through in some sliced almonds. We froze it and me and my husband ate it ALL. It was super yummy. That’s all I have for you be back tomorrow for more Paleo Challenge updates.
