Guess who went apple picking today? We also got a pumpkin, so stay tuned for that! Note: it helps to have an athletic basketball player boyfriend when you want specific apples at the top of the tree! #aboveaveragewingspan #icanhaveanyappleiwant #apples #appleorchard #pumpkin #farm #love #elegantfarmer #wisconsin #yummy  (at Elegant Farmer)

Happy Boss’s Day to me! Today I celebrated my self-employment by sleeping in a bit and cuddling with Refugio (top right), cooking an awesome lunch (primal meatloaf and some string beans - not primal, but I bet a caveman would make an exception if they came in his @growingpower CSA like mine!), got some awesome mail - Success From Home magazine and “Advice From 100 Doctors,” which were rewards from doing a great job last month, and treated myself to a massage… Well, I’ll make an appointment soon! I also was contemplating getting a treat from the bakery section at Starbucks, but decided that that would NOT put me closer to my goals, so I’m working at home drinking herbal tea, and I satisfied my sweet tooth with some vanilla Shakeology mousse and strawberries! #selfemployed #bossesday #boss #nap #cuddle #cat #kitty #kitten #cataofinstagram #organic #primal #lunch #meatloaf #grassfed #grassfinished #beans #stringbeans #veggies #paleo #successfromhome #prize #reward #massage #dessert #healthy #eatclean #strawberries #strawberriesandcream #tea #delicious #foodporn #yummy Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that I used #paleosteve’s #paleochef #paleo #ketchup with my #meatloaf! =)

Here are the two non-Shakeology snacks I had at my Beachbody birthday bash! They are a great healthy option for Halloween parties! On top are my ghosts - just half a banana with chocolate pieces for eyes and mouth! Speaking of mouths… On the bottom are my creepy mouths! Organic apple slices (from our @GrowingPower CSA basket) make the lips, with natural organic peanut butter holding the almond sliver teeth/fangs in place! They look gross, but taste delicious! No need for candy with creepy chemicals! #halloween #eatclean #bananas #chocolate #treat #trickortreat #apple #peanutbutter #almonds #snack #healthysnack #party #partyfood #halloween #yummy #foodporn

Last night for dinner, I made margherita spaghetti squash, and it was awesome, healthy, and easy! Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Take a large spaghetti squash and cut it in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder on the inside of the squash, then put it on a cookie sheet open-side down and into the oven for 30 minutes. When you take it out, fluff it with a fork. If the squash gets noodly, continue, if not, put that bad boy back in the oven for another ten minutes. Once it’s ready, use a fork to noodle-ify the inside. Then put some diced Roma tomato (you need one large one for the whole thing) and chopped basil on top, and cover with shredded Parmesan, and put back in the oven on “broil” until the cheese is melted/browned. Take it out of the oven, wait five minutes, then gobble it up! #primal #paleo #yummy #spaghetti #squash #spaghettisquash #food #foodporn #dinner #tomatoes #roma #basil #garlic #oliveoil #easy

Here is one of my new favorite primal snacks that is easy to make (especially if someone else makes it!) and cute to boot (oh, rhyming!)! I’m blessed because @T_Nice42 has always done the first part of this snack, since he discovered it, but it’s easy! He puts a slice of preservative-free ham (as clean as possible) in the indentations of a cupcake pan. Then in each ham slice,  crack an egg! Bake that bad boy for 20 minutes at a temperature (I woke Tommy up, and he says 350 degrees!). Then, you can either store these for later if it’s simply meal prep day (in the fridge, because otherwise eww) or continue with the following steps! From here on out, it’s as you like it! The way it’s pictured is my fave! I put a small slice of cheese in it and microwaved it, then added a little sour cream, as well as a blend of guacamole and salsa! Yum! The sky’s the limit! Be creative, and feel free to share your delicious variations with me! #primal #eggs #ham #mexican #sourcream #cheese #guacamole #healthyfats #ilovemexicanfood #healthysnack #snack #yummy #foodporn #delicious #cute

P.S.  Now I really want to go to Pancake House and get some bacon…  Randis?  Tandis?  You boys in?

I’m sorry, I know it’s probably not what @Tony_Horton would pick, but someday, I may have to do this to my #Shakeology!
