I CHALLENGE you to pack your lunch for 1 full week…

I CHALLENGE you to pack your lunch for 1 full week (5 business days).  If you go to lunch with a client I understand that you will eat the restaurants food (CLEAN GF choices) but if you go with an employee etc you CAN bring your food into a restaurant or choose to eat at home or office.

Please purchase this today (If you chose not to buy the dressing holder you can use a small glass container with a lid).

The night before please prep:
*1 big green salad (make it FUN like my salad in this link)

*Whip up the dressing in above link (It lasts in fridge for DAYS)

*Make one of the folllowing:
^Bake 2 sweet potatoes & store in glass container in fridge
^Make a batch of organic white or brown rice
^Bake 1 butternut squash

*Make up a mix of canned wild Salmon (I buy mine at Costco)
Here is what I love:
1 can wild salmon, Bubbies dill pickles, organic mustard, 1/2 avocado, celery & salt/pepper
Store the salmon in a glass container.  This will be enough for 2 lunches.

*Apples – have 5 in fridge ready to go

Workday morning:
Take your LARGE mason jar & put the sweet potato (rice or butternut squash) on the bottom (about 1/2 cup), shove the rest of the jar full of salad and 1/2 of the salmon mix you pre-made the night before on top.  Put the dressing into the holder and screw the lid on.  Grab an apple and you are on your way.  At lunch time pour in your dressing, shake & ENJOY!!!!  Eat the apple with your lunch.

It basically looks like THIS, but your starch will be at the bottom.

Are you up for this challenge??  Any questions??

Paleo Wraps – Yahoooo!

   
   
These wraps are my new obsession!!!!  I don’t ever get to eat wraps due to my gluten sensitivity so it’s like Christmas when I find something that is clean and that works for my gut!  They do not break while eating, do not need to be refrigerated and have a coconut flavor which is delicious.  WIN WIN WIN!  I found them on Amazon.com.

In my wraps today (I ate 2!)I had: leftover salmon, my avocado spread (see below for my avo dressing), garden tomato & spinach.

AMAZING Kale Salad!


I used to be intimidated by making my own Kale Salad.  I thought it would be super tough & hard to eat.  BUT I was proved wrong on Easter when Mr Hall brought over a really great one!

Kale Salad:

Kale – prepackaged or shredded (New Frontiers has a great pre-packaged option)
Shredded or thinly sliced carrot to taste
Sliced strawberries

Dressing:
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Juice of small blood orange or orange
Salt & pepper to taste

Dress and toss and let sit for half hour or more
(Amount of oil to vinegar is approx 2:1, or to preferred taste)

Quick, Clean & Tasty Lunch

20130323-115648.jpg
I am obsessed with Costco smoked salmon!!! The above pkg & another wild Alaskan choice are AMAZING and are a simple, quick, clean protein. I eat the salmon plain, on cucumbers like above, in an occasional brown rice tortilla or gluten free bread, in my eggs or just with some avocado.

The above was a quick lunch I whipped up in minutes. I cut thick cucumber slices, added a dash of my favorite organic mustard, put on the smoked salmon then topped it with sliced avo. Quick, easy, clean & grain free!!!

Get your butts to Costco & stock up on smoked salmon!!!!

Train Hard, Eat Clean, Be Well!!!!

Grain Free “Corn” Muffins

20130101-141644.jpg
New Years Day I did a super fun run with John & Daniel on Bob Jones trail then up & over Shell. The 6 mile hilly run worked up an appetite!!! I was craving chili & cornbread but with my food sensitivities I cannot have this dish. So I decided to get creative. I made turkey chili/soup & grain free corn muffins. The meal was a success & was even “Ben” approved!!!!

Ingredients:
2/3 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
4 tbsps olive oil
8 eggs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp organic sugar

Preheat oven to 400 deg. Whisk together the coconut flour, salt, sugar & baking powder. In another bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the coconut & olive oil. Add the coconut mixture to egg/oil mixture & stir. It took quite a bit of hand stirring to form dough. If you have a kitchenaid mixer use it! Divide the batter amongst 12 greased muffin stones or tins. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of oven & let cool on a wire rack. Dip them into your chili & enjoy!

What’s In Your Salad?

20120503-192357.jpg
Make a huge salad at dinner so you have leftovers for a few lunches. The next day throw on a protein source (fish, chicken, lean beef, pork or turkey) & chunk up a small sweet potato or butternut squash. Easy, quick & clean lunch!
