Whole15…not so much

I think the title says it all really.  I was so gung-ho last time I posted to get on board and clean up my act.  And then this happened.

Which led to lots of these happening.8

And even a little of this got made.

Ugh!  At least lunch was paleo.  I found these (slightly weird) sweet potato noodles.  Which means I can whip up a 100% paleo friendly bowl of ramen, chock full of vegetables and other bits from the fridge.

4It’s the perfect thing for a snowy day.  Here’s how I made it.  There’s no recipe because it is truly the kind of thing I make to clean out the refrigerator.  I defrosted about a quart of homemade stock.  This time it was turkey stock from our thanksgiving turkey.  I added some sliced ginger, some garlic cloves and if I had had them, I might have added 1 or 2 pods of star anise.  But I didn’t have any, so I didn’t add it.  And it was still good.  Then I soft boiled an egg in the stock (6 min, just let it go).  I drained out the garlic and ginger and then I cooked the noodles in the stock.  They took 5-6 minutes.  I dumped them in a bowl with all the leftover veggies that I collected out of my refrigerator and sautéed sliced mushrooms.

5And voila!  Lunch of champions.  Can’t beat that.

Except maybe with my breakfast this morning.  It was so yummy and a little weird.  I crumbled some really good quality feta, topped it with berries, coconut and almonds, poured almond milk all over it and dug in.

7OMG!  So what if it’s not perfectly paleo?  It was deee-li-cious!  I was hungry surprisingly early today for lunch, but that’s life.  There just wasn’t enough protein there.  Oh well.
