Last week I was on a little vacation with my college roommates/best friends. When we graduated from college 12 years ago we promised each other we would always be a part of each others lives. This is a promise we have kept and our annual girls trip is something we all treasure. I am very lucky to have these fabulous women in my life to always support me and vice versa. It is always great to go away for a few days, but always great to return home too. I am ready to be back in my routine this week, especially in regards to my workouts and cooking.
My husband and I started our Sunday off right with a balanced breakfast at home. We had organic eggs (protein) with crushed red pepper, uncured bacon (protein/fat) and a few herb roasted potatoes (fat/carbs) and of course organic coffee. We are working on reducing our caffeine intake though so the coffee was half decaf and half regular. It was nice to enjoy a leisurely morning at home with some good food.
This week I am doing a lot of cooking from one of my favorite blogs Against All Grain. Here is our weekly menu:
SUN: Paleo Fish Tacos from Against All Grain topped with avocado and pico de gallo http://againstallgrain.com/2012/05/03/paleo-fish-tacos/
