“You’re so happy. You’re great. I mean usually when you’re on these things you’re a bear. But not this time,” Rob McDade, circa 2 hours ago. I think he approves.

Food (in reverse order tonight):
One taste of this and I thought about turning this into a Whole 90. Seriously. Apparently the coconut butter was just a warm-up.
Instead of making a large meatloaf which would take longer to cook, I made these small muffins.
And cooked them in muffin tins. Plenty of leftovers! And really good. Rob liked them!
Made a great snack while I made dinner. These Kale Chips rocked! I found some very fresh looking kale and broke it into pieces, sprinkled it with olive oil and salt and baked it at 375 for about 12 minutes. I kept checking it and pulling out the “done” ones and baked the rest a bit longer. I munched and munched. I ate them all. But take my word for it, a tray of kale chips beats a bag of potato chips any day of the week.
Here’s the kale ready to bake.
Lunch: Leftover flat iron steak chopped over spinach salad. I added the leftover veggies from last night also.
Turnip hash with 2 eggs. Had my first turnip today. Very tasty! It was like a cross between a potato and a radish with some sweet.
It was very easy to cook with. I took a turnip and peeled it.
Then I chopped it and added a chopped onion and 2 links of Bilinski’s sausage.
PWO 2 of the staples! (Sweet potato and egg muffins)
Taking tonight to relax and enjoy the halfway mark. Much more to come in this adventure!
