Can you believe it’s already the middle of January? Did you do a 21 day sugar detox, Whole 30, or paleo challenge to start off your year? Raj and I did, 30 days strict paleo. I find the orthodox paleo far less restrictive than a 21 day sugar detox or AIP (Autoimmune protocol) Diet. If you have made the commitment and are still with us now, good for you! I’m so proud of you! Even if you have slipped up, keep with it! It truly can be a life changer. What have been your biggest hurdles or accomplishments? Please share them in the comments below.
By this point in the challenge I have an especially hard time with breakfasts. I am sick of eggs, and getting up early to cook them. I have eaten so many vegetables I actually get tired of chewing them. I eye up leftover pork tenderloin and brussel sprouts and consider blending them into a smoothie, simply so I won’t have to chew them. I know, disgusting. I also hit a speed bump for flavors. I have a handful of go-to meals and I’m sick of them. Day dreaming at my day job I did some serious tongue searching (not soul searching) about what I could do to get over this halfway hump. I wanted something spicy, crunchy, creamy. I wanted a bacon ranch wrap. I didn’t want to mess around with paleo flat breads (Brittney Angel has an amazing on in her new book Every Last Crumb), or wraps (My Heart Beets has some great recipes), and didn’t want to chew thru an entire salad so I enlisted the help of Raj, who is our resident omelette specialist over at The Primal Desire, and together we created this Chicken Bacon Ranch Omelette. A little bit of spice, smokey bacon and creamy paleo ranch are tied together with the crisp and crunchy shredded lettuce. That’s right we put lettuce in our omelette, and it exactly satisfied my craving!
Try it out, breakfast lunch or dinner, you won’t be disappointed!
