Welcome to Part 2 of my 3 part Paleo Pumpkin Bread series! If you remember way back to the beginning of our Whole30, Ciarra of Popular Paleo was doing the Whole30 with us, and to celebrate she kicked off the challenge with her Top 5 Whole30 recipes. SO, to conclude the Whole30 I threw this little breakfast gem together! You can find the recipe and full blog post right here. It’s delicious.
Speaking of delicious omg, I ate so much good food this weekend! I hung out with Juli of PaleOMG and Stacy LaLa. We had a girls day on Saturday and it was SO MUCH FUN! First of all I can’t stress enough how much I love Juli and Stacy. I feel like I’ve known these two for 100 years. We have the BEST time together. They are pretty much like in my Top 5 favorite people on the planet list. Seriously. So we went shopping, and had lunch, and by lunch, I mean Bloody Mary’s with some food on the side. Then we went back to the house and ate my Chocolate Molten Lava Cake with some red wine and created a Match.com profile for Stacy. Then Juli and I stuffed our faces with more food and then decided we needed more food obviously, so we went out to eat at this cute local restaurant. Our waiter had a funny curly mustache and looked like he should have been pushing illegal booze in the Prohibition era instead of serving food at a local bistro. He was very accommodating though and let me have my pork belly over spaghetti squash instead of pasta, because I told him I was one of “those people”. A picky non-gluten eater. It was such a fantastic day and I wish Juli and Stacy were my neighbors so I could see them everyday.
So I introduced a TON of alcohol back into my system this weekend and I decided, UGH, I don’t like it! I didn’t realize how good I felt not drinking over the last 33 days! I may or may not have had like 4 glasses of champagne at brunch on Sunday too, which, may or may not have given me a giant headache and tummy ache. I really want to reserve drinking for special occasions only and keep it out of my system as long as I can. It’s so true you guys, Whole30 changes lives! I’ve also been reintroducing dairy into my diet to see if that’s what’s causing my “Seasonal Allergies” or not. I’ve only reintroduced heavy cream in my espresso thus far because I’m scared to actually drink milk or eat cheese. Unless it’s a milkshake, because, I mean really, who’s scared of milkshakes? So I’ll keep you guys posted on that because I know you can’t continue living without knowing what’s causing my allergies. So until then why don’t you make this Paleo Pumpkin Baked French Toast for breakfast. It’s pretty much yum.com/ihopepumpkinseasonlastsforever.
Oh PS. I almost forgot! In other exciting blog news, one of my recipes was published in the Paleo Magazine Reader’s Favorites Cookbook! This book is a collection of the most popular Paleo recipes from Paleo Magazine submitted by readers and bloggers from all over. You can order it on Amazon.com, then cook from and cuddle with it. I was very excited about this because it’s the first time one of my recipes has been published. It gives me hope that a Paleo cookbook might possibly be in my (our) future!
