  • Family brunch at 10am. I made a huge omelette with lots of veges and mozzarella cheese, two slices of bacon each and didn't get hungry again till 4pm.

    Now a lamb roast is in the oven, it's going to make the house so hot, but we can eat outside so I guess it won't matter.

    Beautiful barefoot walk on the beach this morning, a great way to start the New Year.

    • Visited the gym before breakfast today, just did a shortened workout. just because.

      B: Fried mushrooms and bacon bits, avocado, two scrambled eggs.

      L (Outdoor family picnic) : Sliced lamb, coleslaw, salad items (olives, dried tomatoes, capsicum slices, cucumber), strawberries and fresh pineapple chunks. I'm pretty sure I ate more than everyone else at the table but I still felt like I could eat more. Came home and had a couple of primal truffle balls that I have been keeping in the fridge.

      S: Polished off the remaining lamb and salad ingredients.

      D: Corned beef, buttered carrot, fresh made coleslaw of cabbage, orange, dried apricots, parsley with lemon/olive oil dressing.

      Plenty of time in the sun today, including a brief swim in the ocean. I feel so good after that.

      I am just amazed how much food I seem to be able to put away these days, even just lying around in the sun.

          Hi Gwamma and Happy New Year to you to.

          Yeah, I love eating so it's great to be able to eat lots. But I can't eat just "whatever" unless it's primal. And I don't really eat "whenever" either - basically breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner. While I'm round home I do tend to snack more though.

          We went away and due to having to feed more people and buy in cafes etc I ended up straying into more potatoes and fruit than usual, then pastry, rice, then pasta, and also fizzy drinks. I mostly got away with it in the sense that only the christmas mince pies gave me a bit of a tummy ache one night. I probably put on a couple of pounds but I wasn't too worried because I knew I could take it off again with strict primal and getting back to the gym.

          The last straw though was having four slices of pizza one night. I bloated up almost immediately, it really looked awful and looked and felt like I had gained at least a couple of kilos.

          It was disappointing from a vanity point of view because I was going out to a 21st the next day, but not the end of the world, I'm pretty much on top of it again now.

              • Oh I am still in holiday mode, haha. But I do prefer being in my own kitchen and choosing my own food. I can just add extra rice or nacho chips for the family and dole out leftover 21st birthday cake and pav. They don't feel deprived and nor do I.


                How are you? Are you enjoying the summer so far?

                • B: Leftover cauliflower cheese. Truffle balls.
                  L: Cheese and vegetable quiche (included some rice too). Plum. I so love summer fruit.
                  D: Garlic steak, sour cream, steamed new potatoes and green beans from my garden.

                  Snacked all day on truffle balls.

                  Feeling very hungry after yesterday's workout, also there's not enough food in the house for the number of people, leftovers are usually my mainstay but they are sparse.

                      • hi Katemary.

                        I just put into the food processory butter and/or coconut oil, ground nuts (I used LSA - linseed/sunflower/almond), dried fruit (this time I used a Christmas mince mix, can do it with dates, sultanas or apricots), cocoa powder, dried coconut and essence (I have used either vanilla or peppermint).

                        Mix it all up, roll into balls, roll in coconut and store in fridge until firm (if you have the patience).

                        Yes with all that fruit and nuts it will be fairly high in carbs, but better than just fruit on its own because also high in fat from the butter and coconut. During weight loss phase I didn't eat these, my treat at that time was plain dark chocolate.

                            Thanks! I will give them a go.

                            If you don't mind the carbs and eat Tahini at all (grey area) I love these:

                            1/2 cup tahini

                            1/2 cup LSA

                            1/2 cup honey

                            1/4 cup chopped almonds (I guess you could use raw macadamias instead)

                            1 cup mixed dried fruit (I prefer organic dates, or apricot)

                            Mix together and roll into plum sized balls, coating with shredded coconut.

                            Yours sound delicious. thanx

                            • Thankyou Katemary. Tahini is sesame seeds, right? So I don't think these balls would be non primal. I might try them for a change but I imagine they would be very sweet with that much honey.

                              The dates alone would probably be sweet enough for me. I find everything sweet now. One of the best things about going primal has been losing the sugar cravings and I am careful not to add too much sugar lest I start that cycle again.
