Paleo Plan Day 10
So, I’ve made it to Day 10. Yay for me! So far it has been a positive experience. I always enjoy experimenting with different recipes and I really like getting the kiddos to eat more veggies. Personally, I can’t say I’m sleeping better or feeling thinner, but I have noticed that I don’t seem to be getting “hangry” quite as often. This plan is definitely keeping me properly fueled. There have been a handful of times I wished I could drink some wine and I almost licked the frosting off a cupcake last week, but other than that I’m enjoying it! (Not enjoying Sober January.)

Breakfast: Breakfast Stacks
When I first came across this recipe on Pinterest I knew I had to make it. It looked so hearty and so so pretty. I found this recipe on the Paleo Parents blog, but it was a guest post by Hold the Grain. You can find their recipe here.
I had a bit of trouble getting my sweet potato cakes to stick together. I’m not sure what I did wrong… maybe I should add some arrowroot flour or something? Hmmmm, I’ll have to do some research. Also, I added some garlic salt to the avocado.
All together this was super yummy. I liked the sweetness and crispiness of the sweet potatoes with the creamy avocados. The meaty sausage was perfect with the gooey egg. It was super filling and super tasty.
Dinner: Asian Crockpot Ribs
Ribs, ribs, ribs. I just LOVE ribs. There is nothing better than a delicious meaty rib. When I started crocking my ribs it really was a total game changer. (You can see that recipe here.) So, when I came across this Paleo version by Nom Nom Paleo I knew I had to try it!
When I went to the store pork ribs were on sale so I used those instead of short ribs. I followed her marinade exactly. BUT, I did not broil the ribs before I put them in, I broiled them right after I pulled them out of the crockpot. I like a little bark on my ribs. And, I poured the cooking fluid into a sauce pot, added about a 1/2 cup of raw clover honey and brought that to a boil then simmered until the sauce started looking thick. These ribs were so delicious. Salty, garlic, gingery and very very tender. The sauce was such a perfect accompaniment. It had the salty sweet thing going on that I love. Definitely one to keep in the rotation.
