Not 100% sure today but I plan on:
B: coffee w/almond milk
D: thinking I'll try to make a primal alfredo sauce to go with chicken, spinach and artichokes.
S: chili or tilapia, not sure which yet

Meal 1: 3 eggs, 3 slices bacon
Meal 2: leftover beef stew, lettuce and flaxseed salad, 2 plums, 1 pear, 1 clementine, a few dried plums

I ended up making a cauliflower rice with my tilapia for dinner.
In a food processor:
1/2 a fresh large jalapeno
3 cloves garlic
handful of flat leaf parsley

Pulse to grind fine, remove and pulse frozen cauliflower to "rice" pieces (I used about 4oz by weight). Mix and saute in a little coconut oil or evoo until cooked but not mushy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
If you like your garlic and jalapeno cooked more, just saute it for a minute or 2 before adding the cauliflower.

Over the weekend, I made Robb Wolf's paleo pancakes. I switched out the applesauce for pumpkin. Soooooooo good.
1/2cup of nut butter (whichever but no peanut of course)
1/2cup of pumpkin (or applesauce)
2 eggs
vanilla
cinnamon
stevia
***You can top it off w/any paleo friendly topping.****:) :)
This usually makes 2 meals for me.

I figured out why I got cravings on Saturday. I ate porkrinds as a meal with guacamole because I wasn't in the mood to cook what I originally planned for lunch on Saturday.

It was my last bag so I won't be buying anymore and I plan to stick to whole nutritious foods moving forward. It is amazing what a difference something like that can make.

I realized this because I had a huge salad with grilled chicken for lunch today I felt so good afterward. My body seems to really like protein and veggies.

Toned I know what you mean. I can eat a peach, gala apple or berries without a problem, but honeycrisp apples or kiwi fruit gives me massive cravings! it's all a learning process I guess.

Yes, I am finding that my body does "communicate" with me and tells me exactly what she likes. It is such a good thing that I can really hear and adjust accordingly :)

B: coffee w/coconut oil and almond milk
D: tilapia; zucchini noodles w/garlic and cilantro sauce "pesto"(no cheese, just garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper)
S: eggs with spinach and mushrooms cooked in a little coconut oil, maybe curry spices

Tonedbody 10-17-2011 04:03 AM

B: Crab, green onion, & tomato omelet
L: Tuna, green onion, tomatoes, lemon juice, cucumber, capers, and Spanish Olives
D: Porkchops & string beans

I fell off the wagon a couple of times over the last few days (completely off and under the wagon actually lots of sugar, not that great tasting but addictive and compulsive none the less). I am going to be a little more primal moving forward.

I probably won't eat much cheese but I will return to drinking caffinated tea and using stevia. I am also thinking of adding a nightly primal dessert.

I am trying to create some balance and make this a lifetime thing. I didn't feel deprived until recently so we shall see how this all works out.

B: Crab and Egg omelet
L: Salad: Grilled chicken, spinach, olives, roasted garlic, onion, sunflower seeds, cucumber, bacon, olive oil, and lemon juice
D: Steak and string beans with a paleo chocolate brownie

I had grilled chicken wings and celery for lunch

Dottie 10-31-2011 11:07 AM

I love to make my own wings:)
Toss with olive oil, then a generous sprinkle of granulated garlic, salt and pepper - roast at 400f for 30 minutes until they're very crispy. Sometimes I give them a sprinkle of parmesan once they're cooked:)
