Weekend Highlights: Rotisserie Chicken and a NEW IPAD!

I’m running a little behind getting my “Weekend Highlights” post up, but it is because I spent my time being a good girlfriend and helping to grade some tests (yay organic chemistry!)

I also normally have 3 highlights for my weekend, but this time, one of my highlights is so big, I think I can get away with just 2. The first one is this amazing dinner that my girlfriend put together from a Costco rotisserie chicken.

And the second highlight…I GOT A NEW IPAD! And I am ridiculously excited about it. I got my first ipad as a graduation present when I finished my PhD, and it was not terribly old, but Apple is no longer supporting software updates for it so my apps were crashing constantly 😦 However, my new one is awesome! I got a keyboard! It’s so shiny and pretty! πŸ™‚

I had a banana and a serving of pistachios before allergy shots.

Post allergy shot snack was some aloe juice and hard-boiled eggs.

Dinner was this awesome salad with boston lettuce, salmon, potatoes, tomatoes, and asparagus with honey mustard dressing. Β We also had some plantain crackers and blackberries for dessert.

WIAW – April 10

I always seem to forget that it is Wednesday! I think I should work on making coffee at home so that I have a chance to wake up before breakfast.

Breakfast: white rice with spinach and chicken broth, sauerkraut, a beef pemmican stick from US Wellness Meats, and some coconut maca balls (I promise I didn’t eat the whole plate!). I also had an iced coconut milk latte, which will be my summer addiction for sure.

My gf made the best lunch ever. Curried veggies and sauerkraut.

I had pumpkin seeds and a banana for a pre-allergy-shot snack. Followed by kombucha since I had to make a stop at the grocery store πŸ™‚

WIAW – April 3

Today had some pretty high highs and pretty low lows in terms of food.

Breakfast was a highlight today: beef/liver meatball, sauerkraut, plantain crackers with a little coconut oil, and some coconut crack balls with maca powder blended in.

2013-04-03 07.55.13

Lunch was a lowlight: I was at a work event during lunch, which happens very rarely. The hosts were really attentive and accommodating–they contacted the catering company so I would have a special lunch. When I got my lunch, it was labeled “gluten-free” but not “dairy-free”… blar. I ate some of the sandwich contents, but the spices gave me a headache 😦 Thankfully, I followed the good advice of all savvy restricted eaters and brought some snacks. However, beef jerky, plantain crackers, and sprouted pumpkin seeds are not very satisfying. Back at work, I supplemented with more random snacks. Better than nothing, but not an enjoyable lunch. Out of the $5 fancy box, I only ate the hummus and crackers.

Dinner was much better: salmon, white rice, sauerkraut, asparagus, and bacon with some candied ginger for dessert.

Weekend Highlights: Farmer’s Market, Cabbage, and Dinosaurs!

I am really sad that the weekend is already over, but here are some of the highlights. We made a trip to the farmer’s market. This bunch of veggies was around $15–more than we normally spend, but those 3 zucchinis added up to over 5 lbs!

2013-03-02 12.40.38

I also chopped up some cabbage and set it all up to turn itself into sauerkraut.

2013-03-02 19.20.13

AND (the best part) I found this amazing DVD set for under $10! So, maybe I am the only one excited about the DVDs, but I’m ok with that πŸ™‚
