Night off the diet

I have a friend going through a tough time so I went out to dinner with him last night. We had pizza, wings and beer. I had four beers and let me tell you - that really hit me. I woke up this morning feeling like crap, but ironically got over it rather quickly. So, low on food in the house - went to Dunkin Donuts for the family and got myself a ham egg and cheese on a crescant (one of my old zone standbys). Went shopping today and stocked up on fresh meat and fish. Here's what I had for lunch - grilled cod with an orange, lemon, lime marinade with a little garlic and cayenne pepper. Had broccoli and string beans and a tangerine to round it out. Marinade had a little kick due to the Cayenne pepper, but not much - I am really starting to wonder why I did not eat much fish in the past - this was really good! Currently baking a chicken that should get me through a couple of days.

Here's something else I uncovered on this road of self discovery - I like to cook!


  1. Nancy is starting to read Paleo for Athletes, so I may be calling for recipes. Also, you need a blow out meal every once in a while to keep your sanity.

  2. No problem on the recipes. The Paleo books actually have some decent recipes in there. Sometimes I do the exact recipe and sometimes I adjust the spices.

    Jane sent a bunch of stuff to me which I haven't tried yet, but plan to as soon as tax season is over.

    I will forward them to you.
