  • B: skipped

    L: skipped, but had a small piece of rice bubble slice.

    Late lunch: fried mushrooms, capsicum, bacon and feta. Too many handsful of nuts because I was still not satisfied. Slice of chocolate cake and icing from last night's party.

    D: fruity lamb chops and slow baked vegetables
    (carrots, broccoli, homegrown onion and broad beans, with orange chunks and a splash of soya sauce).
    Layered all in a roasting dish, covered and cooked in a slow oven for two hours, removed the cover halfway through cooking.

    • B: omelette and silverbeet.
      L: pastrami, apple, feta.
      S: raisins, cashews, dark chocolate.

      And lots of cream cheese while preparing cheesecake filling to go with strawberries for dessert. By the time dessert rolled round I only ate strawberries, lol.

      Dinner was roast lamb (supermarket special this week, I bought two) and roast pumpkin, steamed cauli and broccoli.

        • It must be my glowing good health that made my friends suspect me of being pregnant - which I'm NOT. Little do they know what I eat that keeps me this bright. I've pretty well settled into three meals and a snack and it seems to be about right - approx 8.30am, noon, 3 or 4pm and 6 or 7pm.

          B: Omelette with roast pumpkin and feta
          L: Bacon and Salad (lettuce, carrot, cheese, cucumber, olives - olive oil and lemon juice)
          S: Icecream (Berries, banana and cream), Dark Chocolate
          D: Ham steak and apple sauce, roasted kumara chunks.

          • Picked some broccoli stems first thing this morning to steam and eat with feta on top of my roast kumara omelette.

            Ate a slice of my Mum's homemade poppyseed cake after my workout this morning (there goes my 20%).

            Lunch was salad made of Havarti cheese, Eve apple, thick sliced ham and olives. But I was very hungry and ate several handfuls of raisins while mixing up a fresh batch of primal truffle balls. By the time I'd rolled them in coconut I'd eaten so much of the mixture that I can't face an actual truffle ball at least until tomorrow.

            Headed back to the garden to bring in a fresh red cabbage, my first head of elephant garlic and an armload of lemons, which I turned into a kind of stirfry and served with oven-baked thick ham slices for dinner.

            After all that, I felt a bit heavy footed on the netball court tonight, and we lost again - as usual.

            • Such a great time of year, having food direct from my garden - even though I really am not much of a gardener.

              I harvested my first stalks of rhubarb today, stewed them with NZ wildflower honey and served with yoghurt, almonds and cream for my lunch. Followed by a mandarin from my friend's tree, a chunk of Havarti smoked cheese and truffle ball.


              Mmmm, I have so missed rhubarb.

              • Why did the sugar cravings hit again today? I so have not missed that shaky 4pm feeling that makes me grab for the nearest sweets. It really wasn't till after I had succumbed to my fourth "favourites" chocolate bar that I realised what I had done.

                I always feel hungrier on Fridays after netball Thursday night (I'm incredibly bad at it but I do give it my all). I had a great breakfast of two eggs with fried mushrooms, kumara, ham and garlic. And a truffle ball. Even though lunch was delicious I'm thinking there wasn't enough protein there to keep me going, which was why one snack led to another this afternoon. Or maybe I was just bored and lapsed back into old habits. Or maybe the truffle balls are too sweet. Or?

                The good news is, dinner was primal - meat patty and salad - so I'm back on track. Maybe I just really needed that sugar.

                • Your food sounds so yummy! I have to say thanks for having cucumber and olives in your salad the other day... that's what was missing from mine yesterday, yet I just couldn't think of what it was at the time! I must remember to pick up cucumbers.

                    Thanks, Zee. I love cucumber, they have just come into season and I am enjoying them. I like to slice them to use instead of crackers for putting toppings on.

                    Olives do give a bit of substance to a salad, don't they.

                      • B: Two scrambled eggs, two slices of bacon, cheese.
                        L: Grated carrot salad with cucumber, olives, avocado, raisins and maybe some other things I've forgotten about. Olive oil and lemon juice.
                        S: Turkish delight. Raisins, almonds, cheese. I forget, not really eating mindfully today.
                        D: Ham and applesauce, carrots and red cabbage. Omitted any seasonings but the ham was salty and fatty enough that it was not a disaster, just not very exciting.

                        Getting a bit tired of ham, I bought such a big one last week and it is good but I need to get back to the supermarket tomorrow so we can have a bit more variety.

                        • My desperate friend has thanked me for directing her to "the primal thingy". She is already losing weight, feeling more energetic and enjoying the meal planning. I am so pleased for her.

                              Good luck, and I am going to make your cheese roll for my niece's birthday. Also I must try the crackling some time. That will be a hit round here I'm sure.

                              • Well that cheese roll became a sticky mess. But it was a delicious sticky mess and I have eaten most of it now, haha.

                                Lunch today was homemade soup - greens from my garden, leftovers from the fridge and freezer, simmered down to next to nothing, the flavour became very intense.

                                Dinner was chicken thighs baked slowly in the oven with herbs sprinkled on top for flavour and veges layered underneath to soak up the fat.

                                Loving the fresh apricots for my snacks today (not to mention the sticky cheese ball).

                                Also went shopping for lots of semi-primal Christmas gifts, that was actually a lot of fun.
