Believe it or not, today is Monday. I don’t know about y’all, but it feels like anything but Monday. I was fortunate enough to have the past four days off of work, and will only be working Monday and Tuesday of this week. So I guess that makes today my Thursday. That is a feeling that I can handle!
Things were pretty quiet around here and on social media around Christmas time. It was so nice to unplug a bit and just enjoy time with family and friends. We all need that from time to time, dont’cha think?
Since I did not even bring my fancy camera home with me for Christmas, I am going to briefly recap my Paleo Christmas Day eats via my iPhone. I am honestly shocked that I remembered to take pictures of everything, but it happened!

Breakfast on Christmas morning was leftovers from dinner the night before. I reheated parsnip fries and served them alongside canned salmon that I sprinkled with fresh parsley, cilantro, lemon zest, and sea salt. I also drank a mug of warm lemon water with L-Glutamine on the side.
While I was helping my parents cook our Christmas lunch, I snacked on quite a few pieces of this “chocolate” freezer fudge. I essentially used this recipe for AIP Maple Caramel Fudge, but also added in carob powder to give it a chocolatey taste. These tasted a lot like a fudgesicle and were so delicious!
Here are the three dishes that I contributed to the table. I made Nom Nom Paleo’s slow cooker kalua pig (best idea ever), roasted brussels sprouts, and my mashed cauliflower.
Of course I could not say no to a few of these AIP sunflower seed butter cookies. I used this recipe for peanut butter cookies, but subbed in sunflower seed butter. They were incredibly rich, moist, and delicious.
Jeremy and I went to his mom’s for Christmas dinner. I packed a container of leftovers since I knew there would be very little that I could eat. It worked just perfectly! Oh, and I definitely packed a couple of those cookies. I had to end the night on a sweet note!
I hope your Christmas Day eats were as delicious as mine and that you are set up for a relaxing week!Eight Photos of #Paleo Christmas Day Eats! #glutenfree #foodie Click To Tweet
