Look At All The Healthies I Ate This Week! 7-June-2013

Okay, I missed a week or two of posting my healthy eats... but I assure you, there were plenty.  In fact, I wasn't really hungry these past few weeks so a lot of my eats were just snackin's of fresh seasonal fruit.  Sweet heavenly cherries, watermelon, and not-so-local/seasonal pineapple.  As for the rest of the chow that made it into my mouth, here is the rundown:

Chipotle Copycat Barbacoa, which is a superb likeness.  Sub out tallow or coconut oil for browning the meat and the only non-Paleo ingredient left is the chipotle peppers in adobo.  This recipe is delicious and officially in the rotation.  Sweet potato, and a glob of 100 Calorie Pack Wholly Guacamole.  I don't care so much about the guac calories, I just love that I don't open the fridge to a giant tub of brown guacamole or have to make a new batch each time I want some.  These packets are the perfect little serving size!


Yams, Japanese sweet potatoes, and Vidalia onions sliced and basted with grass-fed butter, garlic powder, fresh chopped rosemary, then dusted with kosher salt then tossed on the grill for a few minutes each side.


Cumin roasted carrots from Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat.  I am seriously doing a very impatient little dance in my kitchen in anticipation of the Well Fed sequel.  Excitedness abound!


Pork carnitas... another gem right out of Well Fed.  These usually don't last long in the Rottman abode.  If I didn't make them myself, I would swear they were laced with some illegal addictive substance.


Gratuitous selfie!  I was up super cray-cray early one morning for a teleconference interview on the east coast.  The interviewers were probably preparing for lunch while I was still wiping sleep crusties out of my eyes.  I drank a bottle of kombucha and a mug of hot tea and raw honey for a sunrise pre-interview boost.  And for those of you who asked - yes.  Yes, I wore pants AND shoes even though my head and shoulders were all that were being broadcast. 


Wick Fowler's 2-Alarm Chili with grass-fed ground beef, which was awesomely on sale at Whole Foods earlier in the week.


Hepatitis A smoothie.  No seriously, my sad bag of Townsend Farms Anti-Oxidant Berry Blend was recalled.  Gross, huh? 


Poached pastured eggs dusted with Himalayan pink salt and pepper, served on top of shredded cabbage stir-fried in coconut oil with Penzey's Turkish Seasoning.


Grilled broccoli.  I made little foil packets of fresh broccoli and a hearty pat of grass-fed butter, tossed them on the grill for a few minutes and chowed the heck down.  Grilled anything with butter is always good.


Kale chips.


Apples and nectarines with a single plop of Organic Sunbutter.


Slow-roasted boneless pork ribs, basted in homemade BBQ sauce which turned out shockingly delicious and the only non-Paleo ingredient was molasses.  I actually shocked myself with how good these turned out.


And remember the garden last month?  It's been a beet and chard and lettuce fiesta out there since then.  I even have a few sugar baby watermelons in the making!
