Paleo Pad Thai, Kittens, & New Help – Looks Like a Good Day To Me.

Today is going to be a good day. I’ve determined that already, even if it’s going to be work to get there.

1.) I have my first appointment with a new psychologist — the one I’ve been waiting 4 months to see.  I’m excited about that.  Excited, because I do, genuinely, need, deserve, and want the help… but I can’t honestly say that I’m looking forward to going through my entire life story with another stranger-who-cares.  It’s damn painful to go through all the muck.

2.) Today, I’m going to apply with the Romeoville Humane Society today to be a kitten foster momma again!  I have been missing kittens like crazy ever since we moved from Burbank. It’s like a gaping hole of love missing in my life, not having kittens around to care for. Nothing makes me feel more capable, or like I make a positive difference in the world like helping to rescue sweet baby cats, and training them to be good companion animals. It also helps me not feel so alone at home.

3.) I keep finding new music that I like on YouTube.  Like this group… The Pretty Reckless.

4.) I keep finding new paleo recipe sites with great recipes! Here! Allow me to share one that sounds freaking AMAZING, Paleo Pad Thai – courtesy of The Clothes Make The Girl

Paleo Pad Thai

Ingredients, per person
1 cup cooked spaghetti squash
1/2 cup snap peas, slivered
1/4 onion, sliced thin
1/3 c. grilled chicken thigh or breast, diced
1 egg, scrambled with 1 t coconut aminos
coconut oil
1 batch sunshine sauce

Sunshine Sauce (w/out water)
2 tablespoons Sunbutter (organic Sunbutter contains ONLY roasted sunflowers seeds)
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon chili-garlic paste
1 teaspoon coconut aminos
2 tablespoons coconut milk
pinch dried ginger

-Blend all ingredients in blender or food processor to make Sunshine Sauce!

Preparation

  1. Heat some coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat; I use about 1 teaspoon. Sauté the onion and snap peas until crisp-tender. Not too long! Then set aside.
  2. Heat a little more coconut oil in the pan. Pour in the egg and let it spread out into pancake. Cook until the egg is set and beginning to brown, then flip to lightly brown the other side. Cut the egg into strips and set aside.
  3. Heat a little more coconut oil in the pan. Add the spaghetti squash, snap peas/onions, egg, and chicken. Stir fry ’til heated through.
  4. Add the sunshine sauce and stir fry until everything is well-blended and hot.
  5. Top with any or all of these:
    chopped cashews, almonds, or sunflower seeds
    chopped scallions
    chopped cilantro
    a squeeze of lime juice

I hope that this entry helps raise your spirits. Just writing it has helped raise mine. 🙂

  1. Right on! Glad you like the pad thai recipe! And congrats on your new therapy adventures. The right person to help you meander your mind makes all the difference.

    • No problem whatsoever – in fact, I was just about to add your site to a list of awesome paleo recipe sites on the right hand side of my blog. I’ll edit the entry real fast.

    • Always happy to give credit where it’s due! You kick major ass having created the dish. Thanks for reading. 🙂 I’m glad we’ll be helping each other eat more deliciously and have fun doing it. 🙂

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my authorization. Do you know any
    ways to help stop content from being ripped off?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    • I haven’t had any trouble with plagiarism. In America, the only way to fight copyright violation is to send someone a cease-and-desist, and if they don’t comply, then to sue them. If no one’s making any money, there’s nothing to sue over.
