Last night I was very not-Paleo. I had two sangrias (normally I love sangria. These were not so good) at the museum function, then we went to an Italian pastry shop and I ate an eclair. It was divine! There is nothing better than an excellent eclair or cream puff. Unfortunately, they are frequently dry. Not this one! Woke up this morning feeling super dehydrated. Not sure if the sugar and/or alcohol was a factor but ugh. On the sleeping front, however, I've been doing really well. No insomnia. Weird, weird dreams, though...like going double date camping with Luke and his ex-gf and her bf.
We go to the farmers market and grocery store (if necessary) every Saturday morning. Usually we have plenty of produce left over on Friday for lunch. Not this week! The fridge was totally empty today because I have been scarfing it! Had to stop by Whole Foods on the way to work. I had a tough time decided what to get. Hit up the salad bar, grabbed some fruit, some sushi (with brown rice. Not paleo but not terrible), and some more Larabars. Have I discussed how delicious Larabars are? They're amazing. Whole Foods had a ton of flavors, so I picked up a few I've never had before. Also picked up a bar of super dark chocolate. Not paleo but the chocolate cravings have been calling. This was a good lesson in how important it is to prep food at home. I spent way more money than I would have had I been prepared. Farmers Market tomorrow.
We get a big CSA (community supported agriculture) box each week from a local, organic farm. It has usually 12-15 items. Only $25! We've had a hard time eating all of it, since it's for a family of 4 and there are only 2 of us and only 1 of us eats the majority of it. I had decided a while ago to drop our subscription to once every other week, but now I'm thinking about keeping it every week since I'm eating so much produce. Except cabbage. I hate cabbage. Anyone want the cabbage I always wind up getting? Anyone? Bueller?
