MOD 6.5.14

(Meal Of the Day) 
for the Fiancé

Paleo, is not boring!! 

Break out of the box!!! 
Eggs are  not just for breakfast people!

Here is our dinner tonight:
2 eggs cooked over medium sprinkled with sea salt and a little dill
Arugula salad with a drizzle of EVOO, a tiny  squeeze of lemon and Mrs. Dash Italian Medley to season.
2 small sliced strawberries and a few grape tomatoes for color and a little sweetness. 
Then add 2 fried Sausage links and 2 pieces of bacon on top.
Maple infused Sweet potato puree with a handful of walnuts and cranberries on 

This took me about 10-15 minutes, I really didn't time it… 
Point is it was super quick easy and FULL of FLAVOR!! 
(I did have the sweet potatoes pre cooked- 
so i just threw about 1/2 cup in the processor 
with a little almond milk &  Maple syrup. YUM!

Lots of nutrients here. Hitting all his macro's! 

Protein, Carbs & Healthy fats :)

Bon Appetite!
