Amazon Prime Big Deal Days and Sunday Morning Coffee


Amazon Prime Big Deal Days are this Tuesday and Wednesday so you have a few days to get ready. Holiday shopping, here we come!

Just so you know, here is what I did to get ready for this sale. I started my gift lists for everyone in the family. (Which included me too!) I know it seems early but it is so worth it. On Tuesday morning I will go to my 13 Lists on my Amazon storefront and start shopping! (The lists will go live at 12:01 a.m. PST on Tuesday). It’s that easy!

About Me

Amazon Prime Big Deal Days happens this week and it is a big deal.

Or perhaps I should say it is millions of deals.

Amazon Prime Big Deal Days are Tuesday and Wednesday this week, October 10th and 11th.

This is the perfect opportunity to shop for the holidays so you might want to spend some time preparing your holiday shopping lists.

And then you can relax. Because my team and I are ready to share hundreds and hundreds of the best deals.

We kind of did the hard work for you!

We have had access to the Amazon master deals list for weeks and I can promise you there are some unbelievable deals.

And do you want to know a secret? Actually, I have two secrets!

#1 – Early deals start tomorrow and I will be sharing them on my Instagram and Amazon Live show all day long.

#2 – Amazon has once again gifted me two $500 gift certificates to give away on Tuesday and Wednesday so be sure to follow me to see how to win these!

Family Fun

We went to a wedding this past weekend and had so much fun. Matt was a groomsman at the wedding and the welcome party was so much fun.

My Biggest Challenge This Week

Keto Beef Taco bowl with beef, cabbage, tomatoes, red onions, radishes, and avocados.

My son Matt has been here all week and we have been trying to eat the Paleo diet for every meal.

What is the Paleo Diet?

The Paleo diet, also known as the caveman diet, stone-age diet, or hunter-gatherer diet, is based on the presumed dietary habits of early humans during the Paleolithic era. The central idea behind the Paleo diet is to consume foods that might have been available to our ancestors before the development of modern agriculture.

Here’s a breakdown of the Paleo diet’s principles:

Foods to Eat on the Paleo Diet:

  1. Meat and Poultry: Preferably grass-fed, organic, or pasture-raised.
  2. Fish: Especially those that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, mackerel, and albacore tuna.
  3. Eggs: Free-range or pasture-raised are ideal.
  4. Vegetables: Most vegetables are encouraged.
  5. Fruits: Especially those low in sugar.
  6. Nuts and Seeds: Except peanuts, which are legumes.
  7. Healthy Fats: From sources like avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, and ghee.
  8. Herbs and Spices: Such as basil, rosemary, turmeric, and more.

Foods to Avoid on the Paleo Diet:

  1. Grains: Such as wheat, oats, barley, and rice.
  2. Legumes: Including beans, lentils, chickpeas, and peanuts.
  3. Dairy: Particularly for strict Paleo followers. Some versions of the diet permit full-fat dairy like butter and cheese.
  4. Processed Foods and Sugars: Anything that comes in a box, jar, or can is typically off-limits, excluding some natural products. This includes artificial sweeteners and most processed foods.
  5. Refined Vegetable Oils: Such as canola oil, sunflower oil, and certain other vegetable oils.
  6. Trans Fats: Often found in margarine and various processed foods. Usually referred to as “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” oils on ingredient lists.
  7. Salt: Limiting salt intake is often recommended.
  8. Processed Foods and Beverages: Including sodas, candies, and most snack foods.

Benefits of the Paleo Diet:

The Paleo diet emphasizes whole foods, lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds while discouraging processed foods, sugar, dairy, and grains. Because of this, benefits often include:

  1. Weight Loss: The elimination of processed foods and sugars can lead to a reduction in calories and, therefore, weight loss.
  2. Improved Glucose Control: This can be beneficial for those with or at risk for type 2 diabetes.
  3. Better Heart Health: Due to the increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids, decreased intake of sodium, and elimination of processed foods.

So How is it Going?

Breakfasts have been great as every day we mix eggs with the grilled onions, peppers, and sausage (which I make every Sunday for the week). It’s filling and very delicious.

But dinners are a bit of a challenge.

We made the Beef Taco Bowl pictured above and it was great.

But we have replaced all rice with cabbage or cauliflower rice and … well … my cooking creativity is a bit challenged. Cauliflower rice has been very hit-and-miss 9 (I have a really hard time with the smell) plus I need more sauce options that are paleo too because some of the bowls have been dry and boring to taste.

I did a blog post a few weeks ago with three protein bowls and they are great.

I just need to create more recipes like this!

Please help.

  1. Hi Leslie,
    Have you tried Herbamere? I have the same problem with cauliflower “smell”.
    I make a shepherd’s pie, using pureed cauliflower with herbamere as the topping, no “smell”.
    I see Amazon carries it. (I get my at Oliver’s in Cotati.)

  2. We try and ditch most processed foods, too. I enjoy creating bowls, like you have done above.

    Have you tried using coconut aminos yet? (I get it at Trader Joe’s.)
    Coconut aminos are one of those classic Paleo condiments. Coconut aminos are made from the sap of coconut trees and provide an alternative to soy sauce.

    I think if your food is dry, drizzling with EVO olive oil usually helps. 😉
