Good Morning! Can you believe I’ve never had kale before? Well, before yesterday anyway. I decided to buy some at the farmers market since I always see it mentioned around the blog world. I massaged most of it according to Kristen’s directions.
First I washed a big bunch of it to remove any grit and removed the leaves from the stems.
I also made some kale chips!
Yes, I realize I’m a little late to the kale chip party but I liked them!
After sleeping in a little, I got in the kitchen and made breakfast.
We’ve been cooking our bacon in the oven. 350 for 20-25 minutes.
We were all out of berries, so breakfast was an omelet split between us, roasted sweet potato and bacon.
Coffee with homemade almond milk.
I also had a Paleo Pumpkin Muffin with almond butter while I was cooking.
After breakfast we headed to the farmers market. I love fresh pineapple.
When we got home, Dane sliced the strawberries and pineapple and I worked on the kale mentioned above.
We had an eggplant in the fridge that needed to be used, so I fried it up for lunch.
Paleo Fried Eggplant
1 cup almond meal/flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1. Heat coconut oil over medium high heat.
2. Slice the eggplant
3. Whisk eggs and combine almond meal, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
4. Dip eggplant in the egg and then the almond meal mixture.
5. Add the slices to the oil and brown on both sides.
Dane made a delicious dinner. A few weeks ago I e-mailed him a recipe for Taco “Rice” Stuffed Acorn Squash and we agreed we need to try it soon. Last night was the night.
You can find the recipe that he followed here.
