  • PRIMAL DIARY: Tara tootie



    Jumping on the bandwagon...


    I have decided to track what I eat and log it in here. More accountability you know! I will update in this blog post only and change the date so it stays current. I have been primal since January, but people need examples so here they are:


    Day 1: June 1 2009

    B: 4 egg whites, mushrooms, onions, cheddar cheese, 1/4 avocado, cooked in organic butter. Tea with stevia and cream.

    S: Carrots and PB, natto

    L: BAS (big ass salad): arugula, mustard greens, summer squash, radish sprouts, feta, red onion. Dressing made with dijon, evoo and vinegar. 1/2 oz 70% chocolate

    S: Tomato with basil and evoo

    D: 6oz sirloin, mushrooms, broccoli and 2 rolls (I know I know... they felt so gross in my tummy after haven't had bread in a LONG time. Blech,) and a bite of apple pie.


    This is from my blog at:

    It will be updated (mostly daily) and you can check it there! I will also be copying the posts here and answering and Qs you have!


    Thanks everyone.

        I had quit eating eggs until I had an allergy test that reveled I am intolerant of lecithin which is very concentrated in the yolks. I now eat whites only with no problems.

          Oh, that's very unfortunate. I just thought for a second that you were onto the whole egg yolk/cholestol thing, but being a fellow PBer, of course you know better. ;-)

              re: the rolls


              I know how you feel. I had been practicing a Primal diet for about 3 months and then I decided to go to Red Lobster for lunch. They served up those damned freshly baked rolls as a starter. I had 2 :S. I felt like junk for the next 24 hours and I felt I had less control of my emotions.

                madMUHHH-

                Yes I DO know better! Im big into coco oil and butter, so I get my fats from other places.


                thebkon-

                re problems...its GI... lets just say Ill be locking myself in the bathroom for about 3-4 hours. Nuf said. Though when I was younger up until about 14-15 yrs I could eat the yolks just fine. Just not anymore. Also, I have a history of SEVERE (ie anaphylactic) food allergies in my family (corn, wheat, dairy) none of I am afflicted with, but I thought I should get on the right track now, you know? Yeah, I was cranky this morning too. Awesome.

                  Am I the only person that doesn't track the size of food I eat? I notice most people, can tell you how big their steak was. I'm not just wondering if I'm a slacker? I hate counting food and calories and the such.

                    Haha... well it was easy to keep track of the size. How? I looked at the waitress and told her I will have the 6 oz sirloin, rare. Haha. But usually I estimate anyway.

                      LOL natto!

                      I want some too now...

                      it's so weird that u have allergic reactions to yolks!

                      btw, u can find most of the missed nutrients from the yolks in the liver.

                      so, um, try organ meat! =DD

                              Bison sounds delicious(and very Grokish). As a scandinavian I would probably replace bison with Moose, wich is great meat(a bit lean though).
