Day 5

I woke up this morning at 6 am and couldn't go back to sleep. This is really not like me, I hate mornings. But even though I couldn't fall asleep again, I was tired. Being up that early does mean I got to the farmers market this morning and picked up a bunch of stuff for the week, and then went to the store for the stuff I couldn't get at the farmers market. Then I came home, unpacked the groceries, and took a nap. It was like 10:30 am. Really sad. But I felt better when I woke up, so I guess it's okay. 

Anyway, to the food:
Breakfast -- the last of the breakfast salad, two fried eggs. Not pictured: one package of raw cashew butter and a plum. I think it was a plum. Some kind of fruit, anyway. That was more than 12 hours ago, I don't remember now -- and that's why I take the pictures, otherwise, I'd forget.
Lunch -- crockpot baked sweet potato topped with leftover orange cinnamon stew, snap peas, almond butter. I'm not buying any more nut butters for the rest of the 30 days, clearly I can't control myself with them -- I bought each of those packets yesterday so I would have an easy, portable fat to add to a snack/meal if I were going to be out running around all day away from home. You know, an emergency type of deal. Yeah. That worked out well. 

Supper -- baked salmon (HEB had them on sale today), roasted Brussels sprouts (made with ghee (a form of clarified butter), which the folks on the Whole9 forum all rave about -- I'm not real sure about it. Not bad, but I don't get all the fuss about it), and a plum.
Anyway, if you want to see what all I got at the farmers market, I put pics on the facebook page. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing with all of it yet, but I think it's going to involve an attempt at making paleo mayonnaise.
