I have a whole chicken in the slow cooker as we speak and a delicious cabbage slaw waiting to be eaten for dinner. I will let you know how it turns out!

Happy New Year!!
I have to admit that I took a break from paleo over the holidays, though I continued to eat paleo about 50% of the time. I can tell you I felt a major difference going back to eating gluten and dairy after stopping. My allergies came back as well as my lethargy! I'm not a big believer in new years resolutions, as I never seem to stick to them, and I didn't want to wait til 2012 to start feeling better again, so I went back to paleo yesterday. I had gotten the Everyday Paleo cookbook for Christmas and there are so many good recipes in there! I have tried a couple already and they did not disappoint. For simplicities sake, since I am busy this week and didn't have much time to meal plan and make a shopping list, I decided to do day 1-5 of the everyday paleo meal plan and see how that goes. I have never been good with following meal plans but this one had a shopping list, and the recipes aren't super time consuming so it is proving to be easy to follow. For breakfast I had 2 egg "muffins" with eggs, zucchini, spinach, roasted red peppers, bacon, and green onion as well as some grapes. This is a picture of my boyfriend plate, I put some avocado on his but found the meal to be adequate for me without it.
