Oh guilt doesn't make me feel well. But then again, neither does hamburger bun and arancini balls with rice and chicken wings with soy sauce. Had a great tapas dinner last night but some/most of the food I was unsure if I could eat as I don't know what oils were used and I don't know what covered the barramundi but it was all awesome. I ordered mini burgers coz I have no idea why but I thought they came without the bun. 2 of the other girls at the table also don't eat bread and then right there I broke the whole30 and my primal eating but eating 2 mini chicken burgers. Mind you on the menu all the meat is grassfed and there are gluten free sauces. I didn't eat any of the sauces though. I feel horrible guilt. But I didn't have any alcohol while my friends were having cocktails and I was strong and held out on that. Although I've woken feel hungover. Upset stomach and a bit headachy. Needless to say, I think I've learnt my lesson.
I don't think I ate enough today as I was starving this evening. I had 3 boiled eggs around 10am and some mixed berry coconut cream 'yoghurt'. I had sautéed chicken and veg for lunch at around 2.30 and them bolognaise with veg for dinner after class at about 7.30. But then I was STARVING!!!
I've been a bit slack with my updating.
Last night was chevups (not whole 30 approved, sigh) and steamed veg for dinner. Since my bread lapse last Saturday, I've been a bit 'whatever' about my remaining days of whole 30. Although my lovely boss walked in this morning with a mocha and muffin for me and when she realised I couldn't eat it, she happily took it back, although I felt guilty and almost said I'd just have them. Unfortunately I didn't have time for my eggs this morning. I can't even remember what I did have, although I did have a chicken salad for lunch and an apple. Dinner will be chicken stir fry.
Breakfast was 2 cups of coffee with coconut cream and rapadura. I ended up with such stomach cramps I wasn't able to eat anything for hours. I don't know what to pin it down to. But I have only had 3 cups of coffee this whole month, and it's the first day with rapadura. For the rest of the day I've had 3 boiled eggs over the course of the day and no urge for anything else. Dunno what's going on there.
B - rasher of bacon
L - omelette with mushroom, cheese, basil and spinach.
S - smoothie with choc primal fuel, banana, spinach, raw cacao powder and mixed frozen berries.
D - will be a kinda chicken and veg casserole. I just threw anything in that I had left over in the fridge, veg wise. Better go put some spices in, now that I think about it
Hello HelenLouise. I just started reading your blog today. Sounds like you are getting stronger in making good food picks. Good girl!! You seem hungry a lot, makes me wonder if you are eating enough fat. I usually have butter and coconut oil in my 1 or 2 cups of coffee, don't need sugar that way but you do have to drink a couple of cups of hot water before so that coffee doesn't eat a hole in your tummy, I don't get hungry much with that. I use a blender to mix all that fat in so it doesn't feel like I'm drinking fat. He he he.
Yeah I have been feeling unexpectedly hungry which I don't understand. I do love coconut oil in my coffee although I haven't been drinking as much coffee as I used to. I might buy a bunch of avocados, and I need more bacon.
Love eggs too, but also find I'm quite hungry by lunch. Not as hungry as before I was primal, but hungry enough to need lunch.
Not sure I'm sold on coconut oil in coffee yet - I enjoy it in a tea made with lemon juice, but I tend to like my coffee unmolested - no flavourings, so sugar, just a drip or two of milk
