Before we get to the food, here’s a bit of fun trivia about this years super bowl!  Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers is a Chico, CA native.  Yup, born and raised right here in my home town.  Pretty cool considering how freaking hard it is to get in the NFL!  So yes, we will be cheering on the Packers in hopes to see a hometown super star bring back the win.

Chicken again, coleslaw a million ways, and after school snacks

I love finding easy already prepared sauces that are paleo perfect!  I purchased some Curry Simmer Sauce from Trader Joe’s and the ingredients are spot on!!  The directions call for adding 1 cup of water per jar.  I used two jars and instead of water I added an entire can of coconut milk, some cilantro, and some garlic powder.  I mixed it all right in the crock pot, added some chicken thighs, and a sliced and peeled butternut squash.  This took me about 10 minutes to prepare.  Cooked all day on low and was down right tasty!

On to the coleslaw.  I eat a lot of coleslaw about a million different ways.  Pictured is green cabbage, diced turkey deli meat, a few scoops of sun dried tomatoes, a diced apple, and a handful of sliced almonds.  The dressing was a small spoonful of mayo, walnut oil, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

Also pictured is a typical after school snack for my boys (ham slices, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, pecans, pickles & artichoke hearts).  The dip is mayonaise and curry powder.  They followed that up with a few strawberries.

It is truly unbelievable how much food my family consumes….
