T minus 1 day...

I made a list today of some meals that I'm going to eat in my first week of Paleo. I then started making my grocery list. Adam looked at it and then looked at me very seriously and asked, "Are you really going to do this?" Why yes, dear, I am.

And then we went grocery shopping... I couldn't find everything I needed, like Mason jars to prep and store my salads in. Also my knee started hurting and the cart was full. So we checked out and came home, and it took quite a bit of time to fit everything in the fridge. I didn't take a "before" photo, but the "after" is impressive enough, I think!

So tonight I made tomorrow's breakfast. We'll be having "Swirly Crustless Quiche" from Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfillippo.

1 zucchini (shredded or grated, then strained)
2 carrots (shredded)
12 eggs
1 tsp. sea salt
1 oz. butter (but only to grease the pan with)

Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until brown around the edges.

Here's a bit of a photo montage of the process. I cheated a bit with shredding the zucchini and carrots because I got tired of the cheese grater and just plugged in the food processor--that's what food processors are for, right? To prevent wrist problems and sliced fingertips?

 So I'll start heating up the oven tomorrow when I let the dogs out in the morning, and it should be ready by the time I'm done with my hair! I'm looking forward to enjoying this!

I'll report back tomorrow on how things go!
