Primal Day 16

Today’s big news is that I tried another new recipe:  A Fajita Frittata with Avocado Salsa.  It was pretty simple to make, once all the ingredients were cut up.  Two notes about this recipes – be sure to spread the seasoning evenly over the meat.  I didn’t do a good job of this, so there were some very seasoned bits of flank steak.  Secondly, maybe my pan was not hot enough (or maybe our cast iron skillet is broken), but I had to cook everything at least 2 to 3 minutes longer than the recipe called for.  Except at the end that is – you are supposed to finish up the frittata in the broiler, and that took the 5 minutes designated by the recipe.

I thought the frittata was pretty tasty, but Tim was not a fan.  I liked the avocado salsa too (avocado, lime, green onions and jalapeno), but Tim didn’t think the green onions mixed well.  Overall he liked the supper, but it wasn’t one of his favorites.  I’ll be happy to eat it for breakfast tomorrow morning though.  I took a picture, if you want to see what it looks like – check out the Instagram feed to the right.

Today my energy levels were a little lower, and my stomach was a little rumbly.  I was trying to figure out what I may have eaten that was outside of the primal norm.  I had 1 bite of Tim’s breaded tenderloin, but that was the only thing I could think of, and I don’t think that would affect me much.  Let’s just chalk it up to hormones.

For exercise today, I slapped on a hat and some boots and took a 2+ mile walk outside after work.  It was chilly, but it was really nice to be out-of-doors.  I walked in the snow a lot of way, partially to avoid the ice and partially to get a better workout.  I think it worked because I am T I R E D now.

Tomorrow at work I have a meeting from 8:30AM to 2PM.  My ass is already sore just thinking about it.

I caved tonight, just a little bit, and had some dark chocolate chips for a snack after supper.  They are Hersey’s and non-organic, non-free-range, non-free-trade, non-super-high-cocoa-content.  But they were tasty none-the-less.  And since they were in such small pieces, I could eat several of them.  Sometimes the act of eating itself is comforting.  That’s a huge reason why I like pistachios so much.  You can eat them for a long time because you have to shell them as you go.  It’s fun.

Good thing I only have 5 days left because these posts are getting less and less interesting, even to me and I am writing the goddam things.

Take care, sleep tight, pray for sunny weather and a mild, ocean-scented breeze tomorrow.
