Whole9 30 Day Challenge Day 6

Right today was the day to make a Paleo meal for the parents.  Luckily, most of the ingredients I needed, they actually had so just a couple of things to pick up from the Supermarket.

First off I made a snack = Cauliflower Popcorn (recipe can be found here )

First thing - you don't need the salt - although really really tasty - could definitely taste the salt.  Will try again without salt but they were still YUM!  Trust me they are so much tastier than they look!

Next I made Paleo Shepherds Pie (recipe can be found here ) - WINNER!

Not too bad to make - about 3/4 hour prep then 30 mins to cook. I swapped turnips for kumara and put a little almond meal on the top. Mum and Dad loved it and Dad went back for more.  Very tasty  :)

Other parts to the day included a decent dog walk with the parents dogs around the bays, and did a crossfit workout using the playground equipment at the local primary school.  Did 3 rounds of 10 step ups, 10 pushups, 10 body rows and 10 squats.  Good times.

Also went for a drive around the peninsula - fantastic scenary.  I now appreciate it more since I don't live here anymore.

Glad I got the exercise in early as the rest of the day was rain, rain, rain!

On the food front:

Breakfast:  Banana, then after workout - grilled ham off the bone, scrambled eggs and mushrooms

Snack - Mixed nuts

Lunch - Nothing - full from breakfast - a couple of small peaches.

Dinner - Cauliflower popcorn, and Paleo Shepherds Pie.

Lots of water, and a couple of Mocconas!

Hope for sun tomorrow - starting to wonder where Summer has got to!
