Though this isn’t the most fabulous picture, it sure was delicious! This here is half a portion of Paleo Nick’s Pastel de Papa (Shepherd’s Pie). Torrance CrossFit, a local affiliate, has began to carry a few of Paleo Nick’s meals (frozen) and I wasted no time in swinging by to pick up a couple: Pastel de Papa and Short Ribs with Sweet Potato. And in my haste, also wasted no time in having some!
Yes, even though I am now a Flexible Dieter, I still enjoy paleo meals that I used to enjoy. My gold standard nowadays is to eat delicious, mainly nutrient-dense foods that fit in my macros and that most definitely still includes “paleo” meals. Paleo Nick is awesome enough to post the macros and ingredients (nothing funky in there) on the freezers he has at affiliates. Not full nutritional breakdown (like fiber and sugar), but that’s okay, I could work with it.

- Servings: 2 (for me)
That’s right, TWO servings. I only had one serving – it’s a lot and very filling. Even after my delicious dinner I had some macros left for a tiny dessert of Proyo (0% Fage greek yogurt with bit of Allmax Isoflex Chocolate protein powder), dab of TJ’s Cookie Butter, and drizzled with Walden Farms Caramel Dip. Now you guys know I’m not big on desserts, but 1) this was a tiny portion and 2) I do like me some graham cracker and caramel in mah liiiiife. And now, working on not having all the guilt with these things.
I wonder how my morning coffee will taste with Pastel de Papa….
