Saturday - Day 6

What did you do for Day 5's PLAY day?

Day 6 Agenda:
  1. Try a new aerobic exercise. If you find yourself at the gym for most of the time then get out and try something new! Go cycling, try rock climbing, play tennis, jump on a rowing machine or whatever else it is you would like to try. 
  2. Forage. Go out to dinner with your significant other, best friend, or entire family to a nice restaurant and eat primally. This might seem hard, but I have found it actually isn't. Most places serve meats/fish/poultry and vegetables, right? If needed, just ask for olive oil and lemon for that side salad or to hold the non-primal sauce on that steak. 
{I have shown this picture before in my other challenges, but I think this is a great example of foraging. I went to Moe's Southwestern Grill and found great meat for my salad!}

Meal/Snack Ideas PLUS a dessert:
Breakfast- shredded sweet potatoes topped with eggs all fried in a pan.

Lunch- asparagus wrapped in bacon and baked.

Dinner- Meatloaf topped with Guacamole & Fried Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground beef
    {This is what I picked up from my local grocery store. That's right! No need for fancy stores, folks.}
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp celery seeds 
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 white onion minced finely 
Mix all ingredients together with a fork. Line a baking sheet with tin foil, shape meatloaf using a bread pan and then put on baking sheet. Bake on 400 degrees for 40min. or a higher temp for less time to make it a little crispy. Let cool and add my toppings mentioned above or one of your own:)

Guacamole Ingredients:
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup of minced purple onion
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • a few dashes of salt
Mix all together!

Snacks- pickles. 
My husband loves to make his own...

DESSERT- Baked Pears
Ingredients:
  • 4 small pears
  • 1 cup hard apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp cloves
Set oven to 400 degrees. Slice bottom of pears so they stand upright. Pour hard cider in a medium sized casserole dish. Add pears standing upright. Place cinnamon sticks and cloves in the cider and around the pears. Bake for 1 hour or until pears are tender and skin comes off 
easily. Let cool and enjoy!
