New Stuff Thank You Amazon Prime

Just got my 3 new cookbooks I ordered and they came a day early. Kind of excited about that.
I’ve already quickly looked through them and used my post-it flags on several recipes that looked interesting. Of course I will go through them more thoroughly when I have more time and I’m sure find several more recipes to try out.

But, these are the 3 newest cookbooks to be added to my collection.
It was like Christmas at my house today, because as well as my cookbooks coming my Rx Bars came. I ordered these bars as they are Paleo and Whole 30 approved and I will definitely be doing another Whole 30 come March 1st. See already have my March challenge picked out, just got to pick out February’s. Need to get on that ASAP as there are only a few days left. Anyway, I haven’t tried one of the bars yet but I purchased the Coconut Cacao ones. We shall see. If I like them I’ll be ordering another flavor to try out. And, I didn’t even forget about the husband, I ordered him the mix pack of Epic Bars. I won’t eat them but I thought it’d be something good for him to try and if he likes them then we will definitely be getting him more.
I’m loving this new healthy, clean eating way of living and have been discovering so many cool new things. And a lot of that has to do with Pinterest, which is where tonight’s dinner comes from. I made zucchini lasagna which I’ve done in the past but kind of winged my own recipe, where as I decided to follow this one today, you can check it out here.
I’ve written down the instructions for the husband on how to cook it as he will be home before me tonight.
And, let me tell you TwoGrand has been an amazing app, it’s basically Instagram for your food. But, people are posting such awesome food. And, you can ask them for the recipes and they share. I’ve seen a couple of things that I’ve saved to my favorites so that I can try them out. And, also you learn about new things. Namely Epic Bars that I just bought for the husband, and Calm the Anti-Stress Drink, it’s a magnesium supplement. Which is funny because I asked about this product and a day or 2 later in the news was a big article about how most people don’t get enough magnesium. I just purchased some and tried it for the first time last night. I’ll give it a few days and let you know what I think of it, so be sure to check back in for that review.
Anyway I’m off to yoga and then some belly dancing. See you all tomorrow.

Day 22

22 days and I’m now planning a New Years Day party. I got another amazing cookbook called Paleo Happy Hour

And, well I’m loving the recipes in it I had a hard time narrowing down which recipes to make. However I’ve picked 7 recipes to make. The recipes I picked are great since there is a little something for everyone. I am even going to try my hand at making a few Paleo treats.
Needless to say I’m creating the shopping list for the party, and on Wednesday I’ll be making my shopping list for the rest of the week. Plus the husband will be home on Sunday from being out of the country for the past couple of months, so I’ve got make a menu of stuff that he’ll eat. Which is all meat but some veggies he’s not to fond of like broccoli and cauliflower, which are 2 veggies I love.
Today’s breakfast was 3 ingredient pancakes. Super simple to make, 1 banana, 2 eggs, and some cinnamon. Mash/mix it all together and pour batter into a skillet. Cook just like any other pancake. After Whole 30 is over I may add a touch of maple syrup over them. Although, the banana makes it pretty sweet and it doesn’t really need syrup. But, seriously quick, easy, tasty breakfast you should try especially if your missing those breakfast foods.
Lunch was salad with bbq chicken and clementines.
For dinner I was going to try out a new recipe. PiƱa colada chicken. It consists of some coconut milk, pineapple, and jerk seasoning. However, I was meeting friends and running late so I ate leftover fritters and will make this tomorrow night. I found the recipe in another one of the cookbooks I’ve recently purchased.

I have both Well Fed cookbooks. And, I believe this recipe is from Well Fed 2. I plan on trying a couple more recipes from these 2 cookbooks this week. I’ll let you know how they come out.
I skipped yoga and Zumba class today because I was going to the holiday lights on the boardwalk down on the oceanfront. I however, did an hour Zumba YouTube video, which you can check out here, followed by an hour yoga YouTube video, which you can check out by clicking here. So, I didn’t attend class, but still did the workouts.
I also did some more organizing, rearranging, cleaning of the house.
It’s been a productive day.
Tomorrow will mark 1 week left of Whole 30, craziness.
