04/18/2011 – Clean Eats (A full day of Hog)

19 Apr

It’s so easy to get back on the good Paleo bandwagon when Monday comes around. Here’s what I put into my tummy after our Crossfit Football Fight Gone Bad WOD

For breakfast, I had a sweet potato, organic roasted chicken breast from applegate farms, and half an avocado. I snacked on 1 serving of macadamia nuts.

I had to make a quick stop at Trader Joe’s during lunch to pick up milk for the little munchkin’, so I picked up a Carnitas Salad(extra meat) at Chipotle.

The extra meat made me super full! Very uncomfortable when you are 6.5 months pregnant. It was yummy though, and for some reason, I was still able to eat an apple afterwards.

When I got home, I took the bacon wrapped tenderloin that I prepped yesterday out of the fridge. I got my pan out and started to sear each side for 5 minutes.

As the pork was searing, I diced 1 yam to roast with the pork. In addition, I had cabbage that I bought at the farmers market two weekends ago. Yes, it was still fresh, so I decided to just sauteed the cabbage up in the bacon fat for about 7-8 minutes.

I put the pork and yam into the oven at 415 for 20 minutes. I definitely overcooked the pork, maybe seared it for too long, but it wasn’t as pink as I like it. These are times where I wish I had a real Sous Vide Machine. Here’s what my dinner plate looked like.

The pork was still yummy. Anything is yummy in bacon fat. To end the night, I had some pineapple and dried mangoes, and I knocked out at 9PM! Hope everyone’s week started off great!! 🙂

    We need to arrange a SousVide exchange or something! You can drop your meat off, I’ll dunk it and cool it, you pick it up and take it home to finish! Community effort, ha!

        I’ll most likely make it — I certainly want to especially to meet all you early morning peeps in person!
