How has your weekend been so far my friends? Mine has been busy busy!
Yesterday we went to a new event in town called the “Dog Days of Summer”. We will get to that but first lets start with breakfast.
My day started with some eggs and a serving of Love Crunch granola. I have seen this stuff before but we finally bought some from Costco. It is organic granola with pieces of chocolate and freeze dried red berries. I ate it with some unsweetened almond milk and it was DELICIOUS!
After breakfast I got ready to carpool with my mom and meet up with a friend at the Dog Days of Summer fair. Basically it was a fair of sorts with all kinds of vendors handing out a shit ton of free samples for dogs. Everything from dog food to leashes to tennis balls and even free samples of doggy beer and wine. Our pups had a blast and made out like bandits!
This is just some of the freebies they got. Being the crazy dog lady that I am, it made me so happy to see so many other people just as obsessed with their fur-faced children. My girls got to meet lots of new doggy friends and they were pretty pooped by the end of it.
We then made a pit stop at the Farmer’s Market on our way home. I picked up some cherries, micro-greens, local beer, and some giant doggy bones that were only $5! The girls have been gnawing away at those things since we brought them home.
I was pretty hungry by noonish and so I decided to whip up some lunch for myself. I cooked up some ground venison and sauteed it with some shredded carrots, shaved brussel sprouts, and diced mushrooms. I cooked it all in just a tiny bit of olive oil and seasoned it with garlic powder and no-salt everything seasoning. It hit the spot!
Ryan spent the day riding yesterday, so the rest of the afternoon was pretty chill. I had puppy training with our Golden Retriever Luna. She was tired yesterday so she didn’t listen as well as she normally does, but we are still making great progress. She is a very good dog, her only issue is she gets a wee-bit excited when she greets people. She gets all jumpy and starts rolling over like a crazy thing. So we are just working on it.
I spent some of the afternoon looking through some gluten-free cookbooks that one of my amazing clients let me borrow. Ryan and I are going back to paleo eating as it works best for us. Plus gluten does not agree with me at all so getting some new fresh recipe ideas is great!
The rest of the night was pretty low key. Keep your eyes open for a delicious recipe that is perfect for summertime!
YOUR TURN! Do you have any paleo or gluten free recipes that you love?
