When you come home from a busy day at work, you want to get dinner on the table as easily and quickly as possible.  If you have taken the time to clean and chop your vegetables during a day off, one of my favourite easy to put together dishes is "hodge podge".  I've seen hodge podge called:

  • garbage fry
  • ground meat skillet recipes
  • throw together, and
  • hot dish.
No matter what you call it, it is meat (or fish or seafood), vegetables (lots) and seasoning/sauce.  That is what I made for dinner tonight on Day 3 of the Whole30 (picture below).

The Whole30 motivational/check-in email today said that some people who are new to the program might experience some "side effects" - a hungover feeling, mood swings, food dreams and sugar/carb withdrawal but, because Paleo and Grandad have been "mostly" doing this for 10+ months, the sugar/carb withdrawal is the only thing we are noticing on Day 3 but we are holding on.  Another creepy cool video came with the email.

So, what did we eat today...for me breakfast was a one-minute muffin made with fresh blueberries and a hard-boiled egg (I boiled eight eggs on the weekend for this purpose).

The white part of the muffin is because it was an extra large egg so the proportion of flax seed to egg was out and it didn't blend in as well as it usually does.
Paleo Grandad had his usual frozen hashbrowns, peppers, leftover sausage with eggs on top. He has trouble giving up white potatoes and Diet Pepsi, but I am leaving him to make his own conclusions about that.

When I am at work I am too busy to think about food much but when lunch time comes around, I have the leftovers from last night's dinner - I leave this for Paleo Grandad to have for his lunch as well.
Leftover Kahlua pork, Jamaican rice and a few leftover carrots - even better the second day.
An afternoon snack about 3:00 p.m. was four strawberries and some beef jerky.

Chicken Hodge Podge cooked up quickly for dinner.  Paleo Grandad thought it was "fine" which is his highest praise.

That's it - cooking done for the day.  See you tomorrow.
