Birthday Break

So I didn’t post yesterday because it was my 32nd birthday!  I ate some filet minon and gluten free cupcakes….and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I forgot to factor it into my 30 days.  Sorry about that.  But, in general, I am feeling better than I did when I was 22.  Not as light on the scale, but getting there.

Here’s a breakfast and dinner recipe!!

Pesto Turkey Balls

  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1/2 C. almond flour
  • 1/2 C. pesto
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and then place a wire cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. Coat the wire rack well with coconut oil.  Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together; roll into small balls and place on the wire rack. Bake for 20-25 minutes until browned.

Pulled Pork Crock Pot Style

  • 3 lb. pork butt
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 4 chipotle peppers
  • 1/2 C. BBQ sauce (Google a Paleo recipe)
  • 2 1/2 C. beef broth

Chop the onion and layer into the bottom of the crock pot. Trim the pork butt of excess fat and cut into 4-5 pieces. Season well with salt and pepper, and place in crock pot on top of the onions.  Add the peppers, barbeque sauce, and broth. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.  Remove the pork from the crock pot and shred with a fork. Set into a bowl. Strain the juices remaining in the crockpot and add enough back to the shredded pork to coat.  Enjoy!!!

I forgot a day, but hopefully you prepared enough dinner yesterday to have it for lunch today!

So, I started this journey when I was 30 years old.  Now at 32, I’m feeling better than ever!  I’m getting back into a serious gym regimen!  I’ll be posting about that soon!  Hope you all are enjoying the journey!  Tell me about yours…@paleYoBlog on twitter!

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
