I bought two tubs if fresh okra at the farmers market. My intention was to split it, coat it in olive oil and seasoning and bake it.
But I found a recipe for okra poppers. It was a link on Facebook posted by Low Carb Eating. You can find it here.
Wash and dry your okra. Cut a slit in the okra from stem to near the bottom. Use a small spoon to scoop out the seeds and membranes. The larger pods are easier to work with. Stuff with cheese. Wrap with bacon. Bake.
These were quite tasty and I will make a modified version again some point in the future. They were even good cold.
Archer Farms dark chocolate Himalayan salted almonds will be the death of me.

I had a nice little brown bag lunch all planned out and then had to go to the main campus. A quick trip to the cafeteria was my undoing.
They had the seafood buffet out. I ended up with 1 fried crab cake (fake crab and wheat), a bunch of boiled shrimp, a piece of baked fish, and some seafood salad. Tons of protein and no veggies. Woot :(
Snacks were fried pork rinds, a peach, and raw nuts.
Dinner was leftovers: unstuffed cabbage rolls, 1/2 avocado and some clean salsa.
Fake sweet treat: almond coconut butter fat bomb.
One of the worst parts of trying to eat clean and working in the medical field is the catered lunches.
Yesterday, this happened:
By the time I made it down this was what was left. I didn’t look at it too hard. I ate my nice clean paleo lunch.
2 egg cups, Brussels sprouts, 1/2 avocado with clean salsa.
It was only later, about 3:30 that I went down and at a brownie bite, a tiny tub of chocolate sauce, and a meat patty off a slider. I have no shame.
Then work was done and I was off to a two hour dance practice.
And this happened:
So honestly the only thing clean I had yesterday was this:
Today I did something different. I stopped at the local Circle K for coffee. I never do that. Mostly because I don’t like paying $2 for a medium cup if coffee. I’m cheap, y’all.
Breakfast: coffee with 2 sugar packets and half & half.
Unstuffed cabbage rolls and a microwaved sweet potato
Snacks: plain fried pork rinds.
Dinner: chicken quesadillas made with the pumpkin tortillas.
I may have eaten a peach. I don’t remember. :(
The family had pizza. I had the cheese and pepperoni off the top of one slice. It was absolutely unsatisfying.
Late night: almond coconut butter fat bomb.
