Love/hate relationships

Hey y'all! Happy Daylight Savings Time! I have such a love/hate relationship going on with this change. First of all, I despise change. I am a creature of habit and I sure as hell don't like any blips in my schedule. DST 100% throws me for a loop- not only do I lose an hour of sleep {gross} but my internal clock is also all askew for like an entire week. I do, however, love that it means that the sun shines just a little bit longer {perhaps I will actually see the light of day before leaving the office} and that SPRING is almost sprung! See what I'm saying? Love/Hate. 

Spring is actually my second favorite season of the year. I love love love Fall more than anything, obviously can't stand Winter. Spring inches out Summer just barely- mostly because it is a glimmer of hope on the horizon as the long and cold Winter drags on. Here in New England, Winter definitely drags on {note: snow in the forecast pretty much all week?! Spring is only a few weeks away- mean ol' Mama Nature likes to play with us up here} 

Sooo, what's cookin' in your kitchen on this pretty little Sunday!? I've actually just spent pretty much the last hour-and-a-half on Pinterest loading up on ideas for the week and I'm getting ready to head out to Stop & Shop for a shopping adventure. I also totally have a love/hate relationship with the grocery store. For real- I get serious anxiety when I have to go food shopping. Especially now that I'm all cave-woman-like, it's a much longer shopping list and in turn, longer shopping trip. I forgot how expensive and how much of a pain in the neck it is to eat clean. As I have explained to the mister, real food costs much more than fake food. I'm ok with it. {check out my growing Paleo Pinterest Page

my shopping list

One of the biggest things about staying on track that I've found, is that I have a serious lust for new recipes and ideas. I am not the gal that can eat the same old grilled chicken and veggies day in and day out. If I'm not experimenting in the kitchen, then I will get bored and probably order a pizza. It's horrible, but true- my lack of willpower is a big part of why I have such a yo-yo problem. The good news is, that there are SO many recipes at my fingertips. Pinterest is my favorite place on earth- I have found so many wonderful blogs to follow from that site.

That all being said, I want to start posting each Sunday, with a list of my recipes for the week. I will provide the recipe information throughout the course of the week. Note: if I don't- and you see one you want to try, just email me. 

Breakfast: Egg cups made with arugula, diced red pepper, nitrate free bacon, and a cracked egg
Lunch: Kale and mixed greens salad with tuna and a garlic mustard vinaigrette
Snacks: Banana and natural PB; blueberries and raw cashews
Dinner: I found a bunch of Paleo recipes that I'm excited to try...
  • SUN- Herby Salmon with roasted veggies
  • MON- Chicken stir fry
  • TUE- Crock pot Beef Brisket
  • WED- Sweet Potato Hash with a fried egg
  • THU- Tilapia with mango salsa
  • FRI- Paleo Shepard's Pie

How amazing do all of these sound?! Will def edit this post and put up the salmon recipe later on - but for now, it's off to the races!
