I loathe tattoos. I think they’re a gross waste of money. But I especially dislike this as a tattoo.

So if you are a beefcake bro with this tattooed anywhere on your body, please don’t hit on me at the gym. Or anywhere. This logo in general is dumb. Just like tattoos. I know some people reading this have tattoos and that’s cool. It was your choice. But they are not for me. Tattoos on men are a huge turn-off in my opinion because it shows that they make lame judgements and spend their money on toxic, stupid things. Some people may disagree, but whatever. End of rant.

Anyway, it’s Wednesday so here are some weekly meal highlights.

I’ve been continuing with the decaf rocket fuel latte / bulletproof latte morning ritual.

I prepped some spaghetti squash and had a bowl of it with ground pork meatballs and marinara sauce.

I wasn’t feeling well Sunday through Tuesday, but I still managed to make food.

I snacked on a huge honeycrisp apple with almond butter, and sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice.

Dinner was salmon with veggies.

I have also been enjoying a bunch of goodies from the New Hope Blogger Box this past week.

Those Jackson’s Honest chips were devoured right away. If you’ve tried them before, you know it’s easy to do. What have you been snacking on lately?

Hi. I just realized I forgot to post what I ate last Wednesday. It’s a shame because I had a really delicious Thanksgiving meal to share with you. Don’t worry. I still have the picture saved. So here you go.

I didn’t want turkey so I shredded up some leftover short ribs. I also made more butternut squash soup. Plus I made green beans in white truffle salt ghee, mashed cauliflower, and cranberry sauce. I love holiday meals. It’s an excuse to eat more than I usually do. And to not feel bad about stretching out my stretchy pants.

In other meals…

I’ve been drinking rocket fuel lattes (similar to bulletproof lattes) with decaf coffee.

And no, I didn’t get a new table. I made a cheap photo box.

It’s starting to collapse because King thought it would be a good idea to try and step on the top. The top is made out of a Dollar Store plastic table cloth. Even a 12 lb. kitty won’t be supported by that. But it’s still functional.

I used up the rest of my Birch Benders that I found on sale at the Co-Op the other week.

I feel slightly rebellious when I eat breakfast foods for other meals.

I’ve been eating dark chocolate squares with some almond butter for snacks lately.

Theo bars were on sale 2/$4 at Fred Meyer’s for a while. I can’t pass up a good sale. And no, I didn’t share this snack with King. He has his own kitty treats to enjoy.

Dinners have been veggies and some sort of meat protein, per usual.

I also really like Farmhouse Culture garlic dill pickle kraut with dinner. I’m getting sick of salads. Salads are more of a warm weather food, and it’s been way too cold in Boise lately.

I drove to Utah over the weekend to see my friend Bethany and her family. It was warmer there. But on the drive home I realized why the mountain area on the border of Utah and Idaho has no civilization. I drove through a massive blizzard coming back to Boise Sunday night. That was my first snow experience of the season. So far it looks like there’s no snow in the forecast in the treasure valley. So I’m hopeful that it stays away for a little bit. I like snow and wintertime but I can also live without having to drive in it. Have you gotten snow in your area yet this season?

Happy almost Thanksgiving! I’m staying local this year and making stuff at home. So far on my menu I have butternut squash soup, green beans sautéed in white truffle salt ghee, mashed cauliflower, cranberry relish, and a blueberry crisp for dessert. I’m not going to attempt to make a homemade pumpkin pie this year. And someone else will have to be in charge of the meat. I’m not a huge fan of turkey. I tried making a small one last year but wasn’t impressed. I’m thinking short ribs or a whole roast chicken instead.

I’m off work this week for Thanksgiving break. My weekend was a busy one since I was in my NTP workshop for three days straight. And they were nice days too. So of course now that I have some free days, it’s all rainy and gloomy. I mostly stayed indoors yesterday and goofed off with some filters on my InstaStories.

I also played this game I made up called ‘Annoy the Cat’.

He loved it. Clearly.

And here’s what I ate.

I have more time in the mornings when I don’t have to go to work so I can actually make breakfast. This was a late one after grocery shopping. I found Birch Benders paleo pancake mix on sale at the Co-Op so I decided to make some pancakes in vanilla bean ghee (also on sale at the Co-Op, but currently out of stock).

Another thing that I found on sale at the Co-Op was this Health-Aide kombucha.

All the flavors are on sale for a really good price. So with Patrick’s discount, this actually comes out to be around $2 a bottle.

I made a quick lunch of grilled veggies, sliced avocado, and a grass-fed beef patty topped with mayo.

Because I love veggies so much, I had to roast more for dinner. This time with salmon covered in homemade dill aioli and a side of kale chips.
