Today was not an ordinary day…my daughter graduated from Kindergarten this morning and it was quite the production. Amazing how much she has seemed to grow up in this short amount of time. We had to get up and at it early today so I got the little guy dressed while mom got the graduate ready. I wanted to eat a good breakfast so I whipped up an omelette and some left over flat iron steak for my wife and I. It hit the spot…
After the cap an gown came off we took our girl to her favorite place to eat…Chick-fil-a. The adults sipped on water while the kids ate and played in the play area for a while. After we headed to our favorite local place for some chicken wings. The afternoon was pretty lazy and I actually fell asleep on the couch at some point for at least an hour…I love when that happens!
I went to bed last night with no plan for dinner tonight, but that all changed when I found the pound of crab meat I had bought at Sam’s a week ago. Crabcakes are tasty, and I usually have what I need on hand to make them. I had to make a little Paleo mayo, but otherwise it was a pantry dinner. Roasted off some asparagus to go with and dinner was served. One tip is to form the cakes with a ring mold and refrigerate them for around an hour to give them a good chance of not crumbling to pieces. Even with that, two of the eight cakes I made kind of crumbled. I made a quick spicy guacamole on the side to complete the plate. Man, these were good!
Another day down. I’m starting to think I was crazy to plan my Whole 30 with the last week being during my vacation, but that’s the way it turned out! Hope all are well, till tomorrow.

I have been enjoying reading your blog about your Whole 30. You seem to be doing great. Question — is there a recipe for those crab cakes somewhere? My husband LOVES crabcakes and I would like to make a healthier version for him. Thanks if you can share.
