paleo challenge 2014 - with banana pancake recipe


My husband and I are taking part in the Lurong Living Paleo Challenge again this year. We did this last year and it was a great way to sort of reboot/restart/reset our eating patterns since we over-indulged over the summer. Time to get rid of sugar cravings. Our children usually eats what we serve for dinner, but lunch is usually when I let Miss C have an sandwich or grain or a treat. Baby E is now eating regular food and drinks organic whole milk. 


Mommy's Lunch: (paleo challenge - day 1)
Pork chili
pear and nuts

packed in an EasyLunchBox

Miss C's lunch:
Cheese quesadilla with sour cream
lettuce, rice and tomatoes
(we had Mexican food for our "last dinner before the challenge" and this was leftover from Miss C's dinner that she wanted to pack for lunch)
Breakfast:
2-ingredient banana pancake{paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free}

Mash 1 banana in a shallow bowl. Add and scramble 2 eggs.
Heat coconut oil in a frying pan.
Fry 1 Tbsp at a time (2" mini pancakes) for 40-60 seconds each side.
Serve with maple syrup (optional)

Review: It was okay... I'm not a sweets for breakfast person.  I prefer eggs and bacon.  It tasted like a sweet egg and banana omelet. Well, that's pretty much it. Miss C said "eh, it's okay... can I have oatmeal?" but Baby  E gobbled it up!

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
