Superbowl Food: Paleo Style

Don't use the Superbowl as an excuse to cheat! Whether you are going to a party or throwing one yourself, you can enjoy all the festivities without sacrificing all the hard work that you have put in the past 3 weeks!

Here are some tips:

1. Drink plenty of water and eat a paleo dinner BEFORE the party. Temptation is worse when you are dehydrated or hungry!
2. Load up on veggies and strictly meat items

4. Bring something Paleo.  You will definitely have SOMETHING you can eat if you bring it!

Try some of these recipes:

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus:
1 1/2 pounds asparagus (24-32 stalks), ends trimmed (make sure the asparagus is the thin and spindly, not thick)
4 slices  Bacon
olive oil
course sea salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Trim ends off the asparagus, wash and pat dry. Brush olive oil on asparagus lightly and season with course sea salt and pepper. Wrap 6 – 8 stalks of asparagus with one slice of bacon and place bundle on a broiler or sheet pan, repeat with remaining asparagus and bacon. Bake for 12-14 minutes, turning bundles once halfway through. Bacon should be crisp and asparagus tender.
can secure the bacon with a toothpick

Super Simple Paleo ChiliIngredients 2 lb. ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 can black olives chopped
4 cups zucchini, chopped (you could really add more veggies if you want, we sometimes add a chopped up sweet potato)
2 cups salsa  or 1 can stewed tomatoes

Season with chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper

1. Chop onions, zucchini and olives.
2. Brown ground beef in skillet.
3. Saute onions and zucchini in skillet.
4. Mix ground beef, olives, zucchini and onion together in a large stock pot.
5. Pour salsa into chili and stir well.

Spicy Cauliflower Bites
1/2 cup hot sauce (have heard Frank's is good)
1 tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp garlic powder
1lb cauliflower
Mix hot sauce, melted butter, and garlic powder. Pour over cauliflower and mix so that all pieces get coated.
Bake at 450 for 20-25 minutes

    It was a heart breaking day yesterday. I did the hot chocolate run and my breakfast ended up being chocolate chips, chocolate cover banana, and chocolate cover marshmallows.

    I wanted to make for it at lunch so I ordered sirloin steak with roasted tomatoes and asparagus. Apparently it came with fries ( the fries were not pictures on the menu). I ate the fries.

    No dinner.

    1. Today is a new day! Stay strong for the rest of the week! On the bright side, you ran a 5k before the chocolate, right?
