What I Ate Yesterday

Last Night's Dinner

I’ve gotten some questions on twitter recently about what I eat in a typical day. Most of the questions are coming from those curious about the paleo diet. What I eat does follow the paleo “rules”, but it’s basically just healthy eating. It doesn’t require a lot of prep work or thinking, but it’s petty delicious.

I cook my meat in large batches for leftovers all week and use bagged frozen veggies for microwaving. I think I spend about 15 minutes throwing together my breakfast, lunch and snack so I can take it with me to work. Told you it was fast and simple for homemade meals every day.



  • Head of romaine lettue with a sliced yellow pepper
  • Balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the salad
  • Grilled pork loin


  • Shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Almond butter
  • Gala apple
  • Can of tuna

I mix the coconut and almond butter together and it rolls up into a nice little ball. It’s kinda like a coconut/almond butter truffle! So goooooood. I also sometimes chop up the apple and mix it in with the tuna for sweet and salty combo.


  • Ground beef
  • Green beans with olive oil
  • Acorn squash slices

The Kid said the acorn squash slices looked like bright sunny flowers. I try to focus on how I feel and eat only when I feel hungry. I also try my best to eat slowly and stop when I feel full but not stuffed. The eating slowly part doesn’t always work, but I try.  Each meal and snack has a mix of fat, protein and carbs so it’s pretty balanced.

There are so many spices and combinations that you can mix up to prevent boredom. Eat a pear instead of an apple. Have a small steak instead of ground beef. Broccoli instead of green beans. Etcetera, etcetera. The only limit is your imagination!

What do you eat in a typical day? Do you pack your food for work or grab something when you’re out?


  1. It sounds like you pack your food the same way I do. I cook it all for the week and it only takes about 10 min to put it all together every day. I add spices or bbq sauce, mustard or home made dressings to add a little spice to my food choices.

      Yep, that’s exactly what I do. I microwave chicken breasts or burger with a different sauce or spice every day. It’s so much easier to cook once on the weekends and eat all week. Such a time saver. Glad I’m not the only one who does this!
