Breakfast: the usual. Coffee with half and half. I think I have to give up the half and half, which is the only thing keeping me from being paleo.
Lunch: the usual again! I am nothing if not a creature of habit. An omelet with veggies inside, and two charred slices of sweet potato from a spud left over from last night's dinner.
Dinner: I made paleo pad thai for dinner. Diced chicken sauteed in CO and scallions and garlic, and then tossed with lemon juice, lime juice, almond butter, red pepper flakes, and raw honey, and coconut milk. You serve it with fresh scallions and crushed raw cashews on top. I did it over spaghetti squash but it would be great over wild rice, I think. It was super filling and so delicious.
What is with the double posts today..........
I think I just invented a new food. I'll call it Seaweed Frittata Foo Yung.
1 package Sea Tangle brand kelp noodles drained and heated in micro for 5 min (you could also boil them)
6 eggs beaten
add seasonings to the eggs like herbs garlic, pepper, etc.
put warmed noodles in an oven safe frying pan (no plastic handles) and pour egg mix over them
squwush it all around in the pan so all noodles are eggy
garnish with what ever you like. I did a can of anchovies but that may not be to everyone's liking. Bell peppers would work
sprinkle of grated cheese on top
bake at 350 until set (about a half hour)
There are iodine levels in my dinner tonight that would make Grizz envious.;)
Half a head of iceberg lettuce eaten out of hand; 2 tomatoes, 5 ounces of cooked beef, 2-1/2 ounces of extra sharp cheddar cheese, some pork rinds and salsa. Seemed like a lot of food at the time. Not hungry. Just had 1/2 ounce cacao beans.
Just had some orange juice, a mango and a bunch of fries baked in lard (my dog loves these as well) for lunch. Going to finish off the day with some delicious shakshouka.
I had some deliciousness today!
- Cajun Catfish at lunch
- Salmon, Salmon Bacon, Spaghetti Squash, Spinach, Nori Sheets & Green Beans for dinner
'Paleo' granola with almond milk
Bacon and egg
Steak with salad
2 pieces 85% dark choc
3 black coffees, 2 green teas and 1 black tea with milk
Lots of water
I LOVE reading about what other people eat
B- 2 fried eggs in a little butter, 1 slice middle bacon + coffee with fresh cream
S- 10 pecans, 10 almonds + peppermint tea
L- grilled chicken with paprika seasoning; 1/2 avocado + coffee with fresh cream, tsp coconut oil
D (will be)- porterhouse steak (200g) with 1/2 onion and tomato (fried in a little butter)
= about 1200-1300 cals. 24 carb.
About seven coffees.
Lindt choc bar - been trying a different one a day, reviewing them, even.
Spicy baked turkey legs and sweet potato wedges with GY dip.
Protein sludge w/ berries.
Today, nothing yet, just a mug of good coffee with a tea spoon of coconut oil. I run on green or rooibos tea until early dinner (one meal a day schedule).
My one single meal (dinner at 6pm) yesterday had been:
- 3 fried mackerel fillets "à la Mark Sisson" (very simple ... actually no, extremely simple!)
- 2 gently fried eggs in ghee
- one bowl of mixed salad (rucola salad, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, avocado, home roasted pine seeds, herbs, dressing with Greek yogurt - Dijon mustard - olive oil - etc)
- 2 slices of bacon
- some cooked butter beans stirred in bacon fat with pork belly chunks, onions, broccoli, herbs
- some water
Some tea later in the evening. After such a meal, no temptation for anything else (I baked a bunch of blueberry flaxseed muffins for my kids and just the sight of them did not trigger anything but a "no thanks" thought).
