Today was a rush-around kind of day in Paleo land, but I did manage to start the day with a few extremely satisfying favorites:
Breakfast: First, a cup (yes, cup) of instant espresso. Sounds strange, but Megdalia D'Oro makes a very yummy instant blend that's delicious with a big swirl of coconut milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Call it a modified cappuccino.
Next, a delicious breakfast of Patty Pan squash from Terhune Orchards (what's more delightful to look at or say than Patty Pan?) stuffed with sausage & Terhune Orchards cauliflower. Terhune Orchards is an amazing year-round family farm. Take a look at what cauliflower looks like when it's organic AND home-grown:
I cooked the sausage on the stovetop and steamed the Patty Pan and cauliflower in 1″ of water until soft-ish. I mixed the sausage and cauliflower, hollowed the squash out, and added the sausage-cauliflower mix. This would also be delicious topped with a fried egg. Add some Jersey tomatoes and Jersey blueberries and you've got yourself a delicious, nutritious, colorful breakfast.
Lunch: There wasn't much I could do to top that breakfast, so I went for a huge whack of Chicken Salad and a large helping of assorted zucchini squash and cucumber from Terhune.
Dinner: Work ran a little late so I sucked down a Large Paleokit on the way home so I'd have a bit of time to digest before today's workout. Food today may seem a little light, but some days it takes less to satisfy.
Today's Workout: Warmed up with double unders, then a PR on the POWER CLEAN! Up 5 lbs. from 130 to 135. That felt awesome. Took about 20 minutes to find the max. (In case you couldn't tell – that's not me in the videos.) Then a met-con of 2 rounds of: 40 double-unders, 30 box jumps, and 20 kettlebell swings. I was convinced in the first round that I had a bad jump rope – turns out it was just ME (imagine that). Finished in 8:53. I blame the Jump Rope controversy. Total time spent actively exercising: 30 minutes.
Sleep: Ideal. No lights after the sun went down and a slow and deliberate winding down into bedtime. Got about 9 hours and woke up with the sun (and maybe with the dog whining). An awesome way to start the day.
