Banana Delite!!

Hello Matey! Okay I’m done with the talk like a pirate day. So much fun to be able to say matey!Today ended up being a marathon day again. Started at 7am and ended at 8pm. Workout went out the door as did preparing some chicken lettuce wraps. Oh well, I still had a delicious dinner of leftovers.

Took the leftover pizza and topped it with some left over carnitas and an hardboiled egg.

It was quite good but I was still hungry. My  cousin, Christine,  has been following the Paleo diet a lot than I have (day 3 woot woot!!) and she sent me this recipe. I figured it was a perfect time to try it!!

This totally hit the spot, and I’m stuffed! So day 3. What am I missing: crackers or something crunchy. I think almonds may cure this but I miss having something crunchy. Vegetable crunch is great but not cutting it. Weird I know.

What weird cravings do you have??
