things that make me happy in this silly world

this is major:  i packed my husband’s lunch for work.  it contained roasted spaghetti squash with tomato sauce (homemade with grape tomatoes) and whole milk mozzarella.  and he LOVED it.  this is my all-carb, all-fast food-loving husband we’re talking about here.  i feel victorious.  he’s losing weight, too 🙂

i’ve been absent for a while because i have been swallowed by the back hole of blogs and articles concerning paleolithic and primal living.  i’m in the middle of discovering what all this is and it’s riveting.  i’ve found that dr. cate‘s teachings are very closely mirrored in these lifestyles.  i’ve been so overwhelmed with information and i can’t get enough!

i can’t believe how much information is available and i’ve just been missing out on it for so long.  i’m always updating the blogroll in the right column so check out those blogs that are way more established than mine.  i’ve become a HUGE fan of Sean Croxton at Underground Wellness.

i’m currently reading:

this book is pretty amazing so far and has been mentioned over and over and over in the health blogosphere.  it’s the first of many books that i want to wrap my fingers around regarding health.

i also got:

although it’s been getting a lot of positive reviews in the eyes of paleo and primal people, it’s just OK in my opinion.  i’d much rather follow gluten-free and paleo-friendly recipe blogs like elana’s pantry instead.  which is what i’ll be doing from now on.  in fact, i think following blogs (which almost always contain recipes) is way more practical and yields better results that buying a cookbook.  i’ve made a few recipes from the cookbook and the best one has been the paleo bread.  although, the recipe for paleo bread at elana’s pantry looks much more delicious and i plan on making it as soon as i can get my hands on some coconut flour.

paleo bread. i toasted up a slice with butter in the morning and toasted another slice to go along with a salad.

and one last thing.  i bought $85.00 worth of products at US wellness meats. i’ve been waiting forever to order from them.  i got 2 blocks of grass-fed butter, a wedge of grass-fed raw mild cheddar cheese, 2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef, package of free-range chicken wings (for the ole ball&chain), 3 or 4 bone-in skin-on free-range chicken breasts, and a load of free-range chicken livers (aka: nature’s multivitamin).  i think that’s it.  i get it in a day or two! 🙂
