Food talk

So I was looking for some new paleo recipes to work into the dinner mix since what I've been making is getting a bit boring. I've known about Nom Nom Paleo for a while, just haven't really studied the recipes. Well, I have to tell you, I love Primal Palate but I think nom nom may be better. I made the slow cooker chicken and gravy last night and it was delicious. Easy as hell if you have the time to prepare around noon to make sure the 4-5 hour cooking time ends up being close to dinner. Chicken is not something that can cook longer than it needs to like most stuff you throw in a slow cooker, so timing is key. Tonight I'm going to try the mushroom/spinach/coconut milk beef sliders. We always always have a supply of ground beef in the freezer so this seems like a good recipe for us.

Deadlifts felt good today. Made sure I lined up correctly each time and they seemed a bit easier at 165#. Not so sure my legs are going to be happy with me tomorrow considering I did about 65 deadlifts and 150 squats but eh, I made my bed and now I'll have to lie in it... if I can get up the stairs.

breakfast - oatmeal
snack/lunch - larabar, turkey, egglpant hummus and crackers
dinner - slow cooker whole chicken and sauteed onion gravy
*recipe note the gravy ended up being a bit thin for my taste, could be that I had to use a food processor instead of an immersion blender, unsure, but if you put the gravy in a sauce pan, heat up to almost boiling and add a teaspoon of arrowroot mixed in a teaspoon of cold water, it will thicken up a bit. Arrowroot can be found in most supermarkets' spice section and is a thickening sub for corn starch/flour. 

ohs - stick
good mornings (low bar for chest stretch)
lunges w/10# plate oh
jumping jacks
push jerks (focusing on feet/leg placement)
