I’m so NOT Paleo.

I don’t (can’t) do diets anymore.


After watching the Crossfit Games last month, Travis and I kinda wanted to be those people.

Those strong, fit, sexy people that do crazy stuff.

I mean LOOK at Annie’s abs.

(I actually don’t even know if she eats Paleo.  Probably just spoonfuls of awesome every morning.  That’s what I’d eat.)

Anyway, we wanted to give it a try.

And by try, I mean that Travis did Paleo for one whole week and I did Paleo for one whole day.

An entire day!!!


These are paleo, right?  No?  Paleo is for the cavemen birds.

Anyway, I was looking for paleo recipes, and @mankofit recently posted a picture of Ham & Egg cups on Instagram.  She’s a “fitspirational” icon – chock full of fitness tips and great photos that inspire me.  You should follow her!


I saw these and thought, “I can make those.  Three ingredients and barely any cleanup!  This non-kitchen/cook/baker mama can make that!!!!”

So I did.

Sadly, eating these did NOT help me win the Crossfit Games.

Paleo Egg & Ham Cups

From @mankofit

  • Low-sodium sliced deli ham (I used Hormel’s All Natural line)
  • One dozen eggs
  • Diced vegetables of your choice (I used mushrooms, spinach & bell peppers)
  • Sriracha, for topping

Place a slice of ham into each of the slots of a muffin tin.  Sprinkle finely chopped vegetables into the bottom.  Crack one egg into each “ham crater”.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

Since I know some of you will want to know, each little ham cup has around 100 calories and a crap ton of protein.  <-an actual, real, legit, real measurement.  They don’t store for very long (maybe 4 days tops), so gobble them up quickly.

Make these.

You’ll turn into Rich Froning.

I know I did.

QUESTION:  Have you tried eating Paleo??  What’s the craziest diet that you’ve tried?  <-cabbage soup!  bleck!
