Today my dh wandered into the work cafeteria at lunch time, saw NOTHING to capture his interest, then drove all the way across town so I could make him lunch at home. I must be spoiling him for the fake stuff, lol.
He very quickly ate salad, pate and a primal truffle ball and drove back to work dreaming of coming home for more pate after work.
And I have already packed his lunch for tomorrow, nothing like seeing how much it's appreciated to keep me on the ball.
Annie, that is what it is all about....family and friends appreciating you and what you are doing for them. He might not say it out loud (well I don't know if he does or not) but actions sometimes speak way louder than words !
"never let the truth get in the way of a good story "
Since I "went primal" for want of a better way of expressing it, I have been trying to bring him along too, all unsuspecting like.
I even bought him a lunchbox so I could send him to work with leftovers. He now has a pretty good reputation for being looked after/spoilt by me, which I am quite proud of. (He spoils me too, primarily by being the main breadwinner so I don't have to, and also by making me delicious hot peppermint chocolate drinks in the evening like he is doing right now. Anyway, I digress...)
However, today's action blew me away. He's always been happy enough to buy some hot chips or other worse fast food and I try not to think about it but just to keep plugging away with keeping the quality up at home. Evidently, it's beginning to pay off.
Annie, Im interested in the primal truffle balls and guacamole wheels. Not sure what either of those are. LOL
Are the recipes on the site ? or are they yours?
Not sure what real cream is. Im not a milk drinker. Is that heavy whipping cream?
Can you tell Im new to the site. Im completely lost! LOL
Lol, yes I think your heavy whipping cream is the closest you will get to our real cream. We are so lucky that ours is ONLY cream, no additives or thickeners or fillers etc. You could also use coconut cream and vary the fruit (bananas are good as a sweetener and can hardly be tasted if you add other stronger flavours such as orange), add flavours such as cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon etc.
Guacamole wheels, wow i did make that sound fancy didn't I? All that is is slices of cucumber topped with dollops of guacamole (avocado, lemon juice, cayenne pepper mashed together). You could always add slices of tomato, cheese, salami or ham as well.
Primal truffle balls, yes I originally found the recipe on this site but I have lost it now. All I do is put the ingredients in the food processor and completely blend them. That is: coconut oil or butter, sultanas and/or dates, cocoa, coconut, vanilla essence and LSA (that is ground linseed sunflower and almond). Then I roll them in coconut and chill in the fridge. Quantities are completely random, it just depends on what I have.
When I get hungry I basically just assemble primal ingredients in various combinations and eat them! It's so much fun.
You can see my meal plans are quite high calorie, that's because I am actively trying to halt weight loss now. At first my meals were quite a bit simpler - 2eggs and silverbeet for breakfast, leftovers and salad or soup for lunch, meat and low carb veges for dinner. It worked a charm but now I need some extra fat and/or carbs, I am still experimenting to find how much I can get away with while keeping the sugar cravings away and my weight stable.
Hubby is making dinner for the twins and him and Im eating something different. I had no clue what to make... until I thought.. I'll go stalk Annies journal. LOL You have alot of yummy meals posted. So glad you do. I now know what to make!.
