Hi loves 🙂
(a leeetle sneak peak at my blog-love, rest day post #sorrynotsorry)
You know how normally on rest days I’m like go out and go for a walk, try something new, find a new joke… etc. etc…
Well Sunday was like this too and mind you, there is no day that I would tell you to NOT do any of those things. BUT I have to tell you that there was so much yummy food happening in my life this weekend that I can’t not share these delicious things with you!!
Even though I always like to share with you my own recipes, this week I took a page from the absolutely wonderful and delicious blog PaleOMG, where Juli Bauer, author of PaleOMG.com, Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, and The Paleo Kitchen shares incredible Paleo recipes that are to die for. #OMGisthatpaleo (seriously, every time, like, duh, Mimi…. that’s the name of her freakin’ website.)
Not only is Juli bauer great for her Paleo diet friendly recipes but she’s also a CrossFit coach on the side, in Denver, CO and she’s all about doing what makes you feel good as a human. So check her out!
Her website is too good to be true (kinda like the awesome-sauce food I’m about to share with you… I PROMISE IT’S COMING, chill out, ok?) PaleOMG.com and while you’re at it, why not throw her a like on Facebook (I bet she likes you, too) or a quick follow on Instagram. #bloggerlove
Without further a due: enter Mimi’s lunch stage left.
Is your mouth watering from just looking at it? BECAUSE JUST LOOK AT IT.
Coconut chicken, served with spinach, avocado, mango, and lime.
You can find the recipe for the Coconut Chicken RIGHT HERE
And the rest was so easy to improvise that you could probably pair it with any other fruits and veg and it would be just as yummy.
Simply put: the chicken is on a bed of spinach, tossed in lime juice, next to avocado and mango also with lime juice over top of them. (I sprinkled a little chili powder and salt on the avo to make it even more… well… awesome.)
While waiting, quite impatiently I might add, for my PaleOMG chicken to bake I wasn’t completely strung out.
Lucky for me, I had a copy of Thug Kitchen’s cookbook to thumb through and drool over. For those of you who don’t know Thug Kitchen, you’re welcome, and for those of you who already do, you know how much they stir things up.
With a punch line of: Eat Like you Give a Fuck, Thug Kitchen shares vegan recipes that make ‘vegan’ sound a little bit more like ‘all the chocolate.’
A few of my favorite pages from the book had to be….
IF THAT DOESN’T GET YOU ALL FIRED UP TO EAT… I really don’t know what to say anymore.
So, while your at it, having a foodgasm over PalOMG’s awesome recipes, that I know you already have pulled up in the tab next to this one, check out Thug Kitchen, too!!
Their website is both scandalous and fabulous, it deserves a good scouring: http://www.thugkitchen.com (just again, you’re welcome)
If it wasn’t already obvious that my obsession with healthy food is getting to be a really, real thing, here is even more proof:
After all of this healthy food blog reading, yummy chicken lunch making, and really relaxing rest-daying I still managed to whip up an even yummier thing for dinner….
Yep. The dinner of my dreams and it doesn’t even have bacon and eggs in it. (or peanut butter) #isthisreallife?
Spinach salad tossed in lime juice and honey, with blue berries, mango, steamed sweet potatoes, and pan seared tuna steak.
