Geez, more Paleo?! Yes, this is my life now. Food was always my life, but now I feel as if I have justification to blog about it. Other people are interested in Paleo too, right?
My most recent Paleo complaint (luckily there haven’t been too many) is the clean-up. I hate to do dishes. Hate. It. Lucky me, my guy knows that golden rule: if one person cooks, the other cleans. Oh, how I love that rule. Unlucky me, my guy has been sick for the past two months. He’s been keeping up pretty well, but recently it’s gotten bad. So, that leaves me to cook AND do the dishes. As if cooking wasn’t taking up a large amount of my time, now I have to add rinsing and scrubbing to the list of things that keep me from bed and sleeping. Because, let’s face it, though I try very hard with the help of my Tetris skill, not everything is dishwasher compatible.
Complaint remedied: We went to Moe’s. Before going cavepeople, Jerritt and I ate at Moe’s about 2-3 times a week. More realistically, closer to the 3. So, we always knew the first flex meal we would have would be at Moe’s. But I’ve been wary about flexing. I’ve read that people feel worse than crap after eating grains and dairy while on Paleo. And it’s still close enough to Dec. that I remember how crap feels. I don’t really want to go there. At least, not yet. Surely, pizza or ice cream will lure me there one day soon. But back to Moe’s night.
This was Jerritt’s flex meal, though he didn’t flex too hard. He had a little cheese, and a little taco shell, but most of his cheat was sweet tea. For me, I did zero flexing. Unless you count the flexing of my awesome willpower. I had (I warned you this was coming…where I list out every morsel of food in my meal…) chicken fajitas with no tortillas. Sautéed green peppers, onions and mushrooms. Lettuce, pico, and sliced jalapeños. I dumped salsa on top, got a cup of guacamole and refused the chips. It was the best Moe’s meal ever. Better than queso-drenched nachos. Better than tacos with sour cream and shredded cheese. Better than that awesome taco-wrapped-in-a-quesadilla they have. Incredible – 1. I can eat at Moe’s without fear. 2. You can have Paleo food without feeling like you’re missing out. 3. Om nom nom nom. I did have a little stomach discomfort the next morning, but I’m hoping that was because of the half pound of jalapeños that I ate with my food. Scientific experimentation is the only way to find out for sure. Back to Moe’s!
