Day 16: April 26th, 2016

Day 16 Agenda: 

1. Take play breaks throughout the day! This could include getting up from the computer to play with your kids or throwing a frisbee with a coworker at work for a few minutes:)

Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- ground beef + egg baked tomato

  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/2-1 cup ground beef (depending on the tomato size)
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 1-2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (for sautéing) 

Cut the top off of a large tomato, core the inside, and put in oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or more until tomato softens slightly. Sauté ground meat, onions, or anything else on hand and then put in the tomatoes after they come out of the oven. Crack an egg or two on top of the meat/onions and place in oven to broil until egg is set. 

Lunch- paleo chicken salad
