Lunch Box 12: Paleo Pizza!

25 Nov

That's PIZZA with a bacon and egg crust!

 

It’s been ages since my last post. Being a schooling-mom is proving to be an all-consuming, time-sucking experience! I spend pretty much all my free time contemplating one question: WHAT DID I GET MYSELF INTO???? However, I’ve been staying, let’s say….85% Paleo (the cheats come during my full-day study sessions at Starbucks. I eat bags of their fruit & nut trail mix…sugar and seed oil. Yuck. But yum…). The good news is that I’ve only had to purchase lunch on campus three times all semester. NOT BAD given my 3 days a week of crack-of-dawn classes and my 75-90 minute commute!!!! Go, lunch box, go!

 

Being with me being so busy, my husband has taken over cooking dinners 100%. Tonight he made a Paleo Pizza from FastPaleo.com. It’s AWESOME! AWE-SOME! A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Try it. And with the farmer’s market over for the season (insert countless sad faces here), we’ve signed up for the food box that the market has coordinated to get us through from November-June. That means: SWEET POTATOES. Lots and lots of sweet potatoes (my current favourite vehicle for grass-fed butter)!

 

Lunch Box Contents:

 

1 small yam mashed with 2 heaping tablespoons of grass-fed butter
2 hard-boiled eggs
2 slices nitrate-free turkey
almonds
2 slices of Bacon Lovers Dream Pie (we put gluten-free pepperoni, full-fat mozzarella, red pepper and onion on top!)

Lunch Box 7: Bacon-Wrapped Sweet Potatoes

23 Sep

This is my first Lunch Box with an ingredient that is so remarkably yummy, it got TWO compartments!

With food this good, who WOULDN'T want to go Paleo?!

 

Lunch Box Contents:

Bacon-Wrapped Sweet Potatoes*
Paleo Meat n’ Veg Sandwich**
2 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 an Apple Larabar

* Using some leftover sweet potatoes from the previous night’s dinner, cut raw sweet potatoes into chunks. Slice bacon length-wise and wrap each sweet potato chunk in a thin piece of bacon. Pre-heat oven to 400C, put yummy food in for about 40 minutes and you have yams that retain their shape on the outside but are soft and mushy and delicious on the inside, wrapped in crunch bacon!

** Sandwich made of:

Elana’s Pantry Paleo Bread¬†
1 tbsp butter, softened
several slices of nitrate-free chorizo
sliced avocado
