Day 8- Taryn

I made plans and shopping lists last night. I had my quiche for bfast, then dropped Liv off to preschool and me and Scootie drove to Trader Joes for some almond meal! I LOVE TJ's but realized that it is so dangerous! They have sooo many treats and you trick yourself into thinking everything in there is healthy, but its not. It was good that I had a list and that I'm eating clean because I love their treats. I was able to get the almond meal, eggplant, strawberries, blueberries, veggie straws (for the girls), pomegranate seeds, tomatoes, grass fed raw whole chicken, some new varieties of Larabars, and some fresh Fall flowers :)

We picked Liv up from school, then I still had to run to walmart because TJs only sold zucc and squash in packages of 3 and i was nervous to get so many but i need it tonight for the veggie bake. I didn't really want tuna and avocado but I bought a bag of avocado at the beginning of this challenge and I don't want it to go bad, so I had to use it. I actually did like it to my surprise, I just added some things to give me a little variety and because I was really hungry after all those errands.

I filled myself up, put the girls down, and did my workout. It was cardio recovery so no real cardio- a lot of yoga and squats. I felt good! I had so much time after that while the girls were still sleeping, it was weird, but I cleaned and then started making the paleo blueberry muffins to save for bfast this week. And then I got started on dinner.

I couldn't resist eating a muffin so that was my 3rd snack. Dinner was chicken and veggie bake, then I gave everyone a muffin for dessert, but I just watched everyone eat it since I already had one :) And I forgot to eat my chocolate square which was probably for the best since I already ate an extra snack :)

Question: what did you cook your veggies in? I don't want to buy white wine, so I used apple cider vinegar and it was waaaaay over powering. Brady liked it but I could barely handle all that vinegar flavor. If I do it again I might try chicken stock  or something.

B: quiche
S1: Larabar (apple pie)
L: a little of the leftover broccoli and spaghetti squash, tuna w/ avocado, and 1/4 c cashews
S2: 1 Tbs pomegranate seeds w/ 1 Tbs sunflower butter
S3: paleo blueberry muffin
D: Chicken and veggie bake


  1. All sounds so fun and healthy! -- I just used white cooking wine . . . From the vinegar aisle. I didn't buy real dry white wine, but the cooking wine does give it a nice flavor, and I know you know this, but the alcohol cooks out. :). I made the blueberry muffins today too!! Yum!! I was so excited to have some sort of "baked good" . :)

  2. i just used water in place of the wine. i thought i had white cooking wine, but didn't. i was scared to use apple cider vinegar because i didn't want to taste it, so water was the next best thing. everything tasted good except for the eggplant. it had zero flavor.
