Birthday Celebrations and Transistioning to Paleo Eating

We had two birthdays this month. . .

First was Daddy’s 41st.  We celebrated with a very Paleo dinner of quality grilled steak, loads of veggies, (semi-Paleo) fanned yukon gold potatoes and a very NON Paleo gluten free cake (Caramel Infused Cloud Nine) from Sweet Life.

On the 17th, we celebrated McKenzie’s 10th Birthday.  McKenzie is our middle child. . . she is amazing.  She is the “rule girl” and an excellent helper.  She may be the hardest working child of our bunch, always ready to jump in and lend a hand.  She also is a skilled story teller and master speller.  We are thrilled to be McKenzie’s Mommy & Daddy!

McKenzie chose build your own salad as her birthday dinner (did I mention she’s also the veggie girl?).  It was delicious and Paleo!  Her “cake” was not. . . we made gluten free cake pops with leftover cake I had stored in the freezer for this purpose.  I did find a recipe for a more Paleo/Grain Free option over at Elana’s Pantry but we ran short on time this round.

Happy 10th Birthday Sweet Girl!
