What I Ate Wednesday #19- Paleo Eats

Last time I participated in a What I Ate Wednesday was in July... Whoops! As always, check out Peas and Crayons for more WIAW inspiration!

Today is a paleo version of WIAW. I decided to start eating paleo again a week and a half ago and I'm already feeling way better!

On to the eats:

The best thing to wake up to- Iced coffee with coconut milk. I prefer iced coffee to hot coffee any day! I recently tried swapping out cream for lite coconut milk, and low and behold I have a new favorite!
We got about 8 feet of new snow last night. That may be a slight exaggeration.

Breakfast: Paleo pancakes with almond butter and fruit salad

Paleo Pancake recipe:

2 eggs
1/4 C shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 mashed banana
1/4 tsp vanilla
cinnamon to taste (I like LOTS!)

Combine and fry over medium heat in coconut oil. I always top mine with almond butter, but you could use maple syrup or fruit puree. The recipe is very versatile, if you like a thicker pancake you could add some coconut flour. Not a banana fan? Omit it and up the unsweetened coconut (they won't be very sweet though). I have tried many variations on the basic recipe and I haven't been disappointed yet.. aside from the time I burnt a batch!

The green flecks in my fruit salad? Basil. I always add fresh basil to my basic fruit salad (apples, oranges, and bananas). Try it, you'll love it!

Mexican style salad with fresh pico, guacamole and chicken.

 Dinner: Homemade burgers with bacon, mushrooms, avocado and paleo ketchup- my very favorite quick dinner! We had a side of roasted broccoli as well :)

Dessert was a paleo peppermint patty- I ate the last one before I remembered to take a picture. They were absolutely amazing... recipe here!


  1. Paleo peppermint patties sound amazing! Might have to make those tonight!

    1. Oh man, they were so good! Dangerous though, I wanted to eat them all at once!

  2. Yum, so happy to see some paleo ideas on the WIAW link party. Thanks for sharing!!
