Rachel and I cooked this the evening before I left: baked chicken thighs and onions in a chipotle cilantro sauce, topped with tomatoes, avocados, and goat cheese. We made this recipe totally up! But will definitely be making it again.
Friday night in San Antonio we cooked: steamed asparagus, mahi-mahi topped with olive oil, salt and pepper, tomatoes and cilantro. We also had some shrimpies sauteed in a white wine and cilantro sauce.
Saturday morning: French toast topped with blackberries and raspberries, with bacon and eggs. BACON!!
Sunday, we went to a pretty new restaurant in downtown San Antonio owned by John Besh: Luke. I don't have a picture of my meal, a crab and avocado omelet. J had the famous burger on the menu....and I didn't realize I'd get an appetizer too when I ordered this bloody mary:
Many of the people at my gym eat according to the Paleo lifestyle (article courtesy of Hunt.Gather.Love) but I'm not quite sure it's totally for me. I have incorporated a lot of the tenets of Paleo into my own cooking and I'm really enjoying how I'm eating. Mostly, I've cut out processed foods and I'm focusing a lot more on protein, vegetables, and healthy natural fats. I'm doing a lot more cooking on my own now and just generally trying to eat healthier while trying new foods. I'm going to the Farmer's Market bi-weekly and stocking up on vegetables and meat to freeze. J is super supportive of my new eating habits and he has always encouraged me to cook...but it's really cute, when we'll cook something or eat something he asks "Is this Paleo?"
