Ballerina got a phone call this afternoon, from a friend inviting her over for a Girls Night. Her side of the conversation sounded like this: "yes? Woo hoo! Will there be paleo fare?" That girl is pretty awesome. I love that her friends know what paleo is. :) Oh, and by the way...she's lost 8 lbs. so far.
We tried an experiment tonight. Root vegetable "chips". I bought a rutabaga, a turnip, a beet and a sweet potato. This is what we got...

Thrown together paleo pancakes (I didn't measure anything. I just threw an egg, some almond butter, some applesauce, some cinnamon, and some ginger in a bowl, then thinned it with coconut milk.)
Throat Coat tea (which tastes acceptably sweet to me now, without sweeteners)
