Whole 30 Challenge Day 11

Image

It’s the work weekend again…3 12 hour shifts. In a sense I look forward to these because then I know come next weekend its 3 days off…unless of course your me and you pick up overtime. Today I decided that my smoothie need a kick to it so I added some of my favorite coffee to it, Chocolate Cherry Kiss, 1 tsp of cocao nibs, 1 tbs coco powder , 1/2 cup of almond milk,  1 scoop of protein powder 1 pinch of salt and a dash of cinnamon. It was amazing! It was like a salted chocolate covered cherrries…which gives me many a naughty desert idea. For lunch I had my braised red cabbage and kielbasa. For dinner well that is a story all on its own. Dinner was cooking in the crock pot all day.

Paleo Beff Stew

2 pounds stew meat

1/3 bottle of red wine

1/2 cup tapioca flour

salt and pepper

1 bay leaf

1 large sweet onion

1 large sweet potato

2 1/2 cups of beef  broth

Cooked on low for 13 hours. I mixed the flour, salt and pepper together and tossed it around with the stew meat. Then heated up my cast iron skilled on medium high heat and threw the meat on to brown. Once the meat was done I put the wine in the pan to de-glaze the pan. Oh it smelled delish.  I chopped up the sweet potato and placed that in first, then chopped up my onion placed that on top. Lastly came my browned stew meat. After I de-glazed the pan I dumped that in followed by the beef broth. ( I did all of this the night before) Before I left for work I placed it on low to cook and fill the house will joyous smells all day.
