From MDA
Store-bought Trail Mix is typically loaded with a ton of sugar – this version, however, weeds out the bad stuff and leaves you with all the satisfying, delicious stuff!

Ingredients:
1 cup raw or roasted almonds
1 cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
1 cup blueberries
½ cup raisins

Method:
Combine all ingredients in an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place (it really can’t get any easier!)

Personally, I don't like raisins and would either leave them out or use the cranberries.

Todays menu:
B-eggs, sausage (store bought but market made), mushrooms and green onion, coffee with coconut milk
S-None
L-green smoothie *DH gets left over chicken-I get the bones. Broth!*
S-nuts or may be making that trail mix above
D-Lamb burger (using lettuce leaves or oopsies for buns), baked sweet potato "fries",
Dessert-maybe a clementine
With a little luck I'll be 100% today.

Exercise? Today I'm resting. Vacuumed for a full half hour yesterday. Ouch my shoulder. Gotta get in shape.

You can also go with freeze-dried strawberry bits. Be wary of added sugar to any dried fruit.

I love Jack Russells. Ever since Eddie on Frasier . I have a schnauzer/poodle mix, her name is Vanilla because she is all white. She is a lovely rescue animal. I can't imagine my day without her, when she is at the groomer's there is a notable absence in the house.

Funny this came up today. My DH went to visit his mother who is moving from her big house to a smaller home *downsizing*. Her late husband gave her a Nuwave oven and she didn't like it as it was kinda "newfangled" for her, so she gave it to my husband to give it to me I can use it as a dehydrator. I'll make my own NSA (no sugar added) fruits. And jerky too. I just made a whole package of bacon in 15 minutes for us to use this week. We have cut way back on bacon, but I found a lower sodium, no sugar added kind at Kroger. Pretty good. I also bought a big package of blueberries I was going to freeze...hmmm. May dehydrate those tonight in the Nuwave.

Just completed my first full Primal week...and had a loss of 10.75 pounds. Wow I couldn't believe the scale on Sunday morning! I haven't felt hungry -- well, no need to really, 'cause I haven't "starved" myself! Meat, veggies, fruit, a little dairy (full-fat Greek yogurt, and organic, all natural cheese, a splash of heavy cream twice)....wow.

I was very careful to avoid processed food most of all...I'm going to make that my main goal for a while, and see how the next few weeks go.

Eden Foods makes some dried fruits without refined sugar or HFCS. Google that. They are "infused with organic apple juice" before drying and sprayed with...sunflower oil (to prevent clumping). Assume they are available at Whole Foods.

HMMM. I don't know about the blueberries

Evidently full fat plain Greek yogurt (occasionally)is acceptable as long as you don't have issues with dairy.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I made the grassfed beef ribs tonight! They are cooling right now. They smell amazing. I made a BBQ sauce out of tomato paste, apple cider vinegar and spices. I also used a little bit of cinnamon and cumin in my spice rub- I ran out of sea salt. Lol!!

For dinner, the family had wild salmon, which I bought from trader joes. I just broiled it for 20 mins with some lemon, kerrygold and thyme. Came out yummy. I also have a bunch of frozen spinach to get rid of, so I sautéed some spinach in beef tallow, butter and garlic. It was great!

I didnt have much of a lunch today, just some leftover cauli rice with egg. I did have a large breakfast of bacon this morning, with berries. No chocolate today! I usually have my world market chocolate every day!

I just love paleo/primal.

I haven't managed to find any dried fruit that is on plan. I have a dehydrator that I use to make jerky, and I'm thinking about drying out some fruit to see how it turns out. I just bought some blueberries - maybe I should go experiment.

I was thinking the same thing....found out some dehydrators are pretty inexpensive and am planning on buying one.

Was hungry for some reason all day but stayed on track. Every time I wanted something I'd get a glass of water or I'd go brush my teeth Might just jump up and go get some hot green tea. Right. Now.

B-4 med. eggs and 1 oz. bacon
S- blueberry shake-just blueberries, coconut milk and greek yogurt
L- salad with chicken, avocado and tomatoes
S-1 square ultra dark chocolate
D-chicken poblano, sauteed spinach
dessert-a clementine (maybe)

I get the Greek God full fat at Wal Mart and HEB and then much to my surprise I found it at Kroger. It's the green carton. And I noticed that Oikos seems to have gone nation-wide. Belongs to a big company now. I've never tried or bought it so I don't know if they have full fat version. Seems like Whole Foods carries the full fat Fage. Not sure but will look next time while I'm hunting down Bubbie's pickles.

Today:
B-blueberry shake with unsweetened coconut, flax, greek yogurt and coconut milk and added an organic egg for luck
L-BA salad ala Mark Sisson
S-nuts
D- salmon and sauteed spinach *bag o' spinach almost gone*
Dessert-cocnut creme with blackberries
