Breakfast: Chorizo and Eggs, Yoda Style

Breakfast for the next 4 days I just made. Last time a frittata I tried to make, but too much filler and not enough egg. More like a meat pie it was. Tonight, this theme I continued…


  • 2 packages Mexican Chorizo (10oz each)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 sweet potato, grated
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • a little coconut oil


The oven, preheat it to 400 I do.

The chorizo, browned on low heat it was and removed from cast iron skillet. Next, melted coconut oil I did and onion and peppers I sautéed. After a few minutes, the sweet potato I mix in. A few more minutes and the chorizo I put back in. Drain it a little first I do. All of it mix together I do. Then, 4 shallow areas do I make. Into each, crack 2 eggs I do.

Carefully, place it all in the oven I do and let it cook. Remove it when done the eggs are.

Tasty this is and filling as well! From this, four meals I will have.

Soon will I rest, yes, forever sleep. Earned it I have. Twilight is upon me, soon night must fall.


Important it is and ignore it you should not. Many articles there are on the importance of it. Value it I do in my life. Used to be always I did not sleep as I should. Understand it better I do now and an effort I make daily to attend to it. Staring at TV or computer all night, help they did not. Learned I did that blue light they output and tell your body it does to not make melatonin. Necessary it is to make one feel sleepy. If exposed to blue light you are after dark, then melatonin you will not make and tired you will not be at bed time. Toss and turn you will.

Three changes I have made and help me they do. With these changes, sleepy I feel before bed. Quickly fall asleep I do and soundly I sleep.

Help me these three things do…


Installed this app I have on my laptop. As sun sets, change my color settings it does. Slowly, it removes blue light. On the first night, yawning I was before dinner. Good this is. Found it through Mark Sisson I did and grateful I am for it. Use it daily I will and just now I realize available for iDevices it is. Install it I must!

Uvex S0360X Ultra-spec 2000 Safety Eyewear, Orange Frame, SCT-Orange UV Extreme Anti-Fog Lens

Same purpose these serve as F.lux, except work on all light they do. Put them on I will after dinner. Wear them I will until I turn off the lights for bed. Even wear them while reading I do. The blue light they block and sleepy I become. Only will I wear them at home. Self-conscious Yoda is. mmm ehHEHEHEhehe.

Make Time for Sleep

Turn things off and go to bed I do now. Used to be watch TV until tired I felt. Sometimes, long it would take. Now, turn things off. Only watch programs I want to watch. No more watching tv because bored I am. DVR, freed me it has from commercials so less time it takes to watch. Every night, turn devices off and read before bed I do. Heavy the eyes get. Good this is. Consciously, these decisions I make and time I set aside for sleep. When combined with JERF and some exercise, sleep soundly I do. Awake I do in the morning ready for the day. Groggy Yoda I am no more!

Other Changes

Can not sleep on my back. Never liked it have I. Uncomfortable I feel. Always slept on side or partial stomach. Always had arm under pillow, under my head. Shoulder pain I started to develop this year. Watch this I did from Kstarr (another great teacher!) on pillow and neck pain. My pillow I folded in half, length-wise. No longer do I need arm under it. High enough it is to support my head. Gone my shoulder pain is and better I sleep now.

Lastly, block lights and sounds I have. Very dark and quiet my room is. Cool as well. Keep the temp in high 60s to low 70s.

Take the time and effort you must in order to sleep properly. Help you it can for this is when the body heals and if deprive yourself of this you do, then suffer you will.

If PaleoYoda Look Good Does Not…

… then look good you do not!

hmm ehHEHEheheheh, made a joke I have. Hmphf! Maybe funny only to me it is. Heard of Vidal Sassoon have you not? Regardless, time I waste.

Hair Care

Stopped using shampoo I have. Long time used Head & Shoulders I have. Recent years past have found my hair feeling oily after washing. Like it I did not! So stop I did.

“What do you use now, Mater?”

Now, use baking soda and apple cider vinegar I do. And easy it is! Two squeeze bottles I use: into one add 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Into the other pour 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. 1 cup of water to each I add. Marked the levels on each bottle I have so easy to fill they are in the shower.

In the shower, baking soda you will use first. Rinse. Then vinegar. Let it sit I do for a minute or two, then rinse. Clean my hair feels and for longer, too.

Before, greasy my hair would feel 2 days later. Stand up it would upon awaking in the morning. Now, far less greasy if wash it I do not. Look good it does when wake I do. The cats I no longer scare!

Items I use:

Last almost a year they should because every day washing, needed it is not.

Found Me You Have

A blog I have started. Only so much one can say on Twitter. Post here I will about all things Paleo, Primal, or JERF (Just Eat Real Food). More than just nutrition this will contain. Meditate I do. Exercise I do. Sleep. All aspects of a healthy life. If want good health you do, then work on all areas you must!

Stay and learn… or do not. Stay you will, I hope. Much potential I see in you. Yes…
