    Thanks for the suggestion, Ecks! Where on earth did you learn to cook so well?

    @Judg Cookin for me was something that I've always enjoyed. As much as I liked mom's cooking growing up I always looked at it and thought to myself "how would I make this better?". Eventually it was the same with everything I ate- at home, at a friends place, in a restaurant, wherever. Now I can look at almost anything and figure out ways to make it healthy and enjoyable.

    @Alesse I picked up some MCT oil by the way to try it for myself first. I took it first yesterday and I've got to say my energy levels were instantly up and my hunger levels were instantly down. I felt satiated for 4 hours off of 1 table spoon. I took a double dose today to see what would happen... interested feeling... it's like my skin was hopping... too much energy I guess. it all subsided with a nice long walk though.

    I'm 2 days behind on food logs... So here goes

    Yesterday

    Breakfast- IF (Forgot to eat on the way out)

    Lunch- Chicken Strips (Chicken breast cut up and coated in a mix of crushed pork rinds, coconut flour, almond flour, salt, pepper, spices). Ketchup on the side (I'm usually bad with reporting my ketchup consumption.

    Dinner- Steak Sandwich with chicken strips in it. Big salad


    Excercise. Spent about 2 hours wandering the city barefoot. freakin awesome

    Supplements- 2TBSP MCT, 30000mg Fish oil, 6000ui Vitamin D


    Today

    Breakfast- Big ass protien breakfast with a buddy 3 jumbo eggs, 4 slices of bacon, 4 chicken breakfast sausages, approximately 3/4 cup mixed fruit

    Lunch- cup of raspberries, some pork rinds

    Dinner- I called it a fish taco?? and I had 2. Romane lettuce topped with 1/2 a salmon sausage each, goats milk yogurt, tomato, parmigian (sp?) cheese, mustard, franks hot sauce. Big ass salad on the side.



    Exercise- 1 hour barefoot walk similar to yesterday's and as soon as I'm done this post im going back out for another walk.

    Supplements- 2TBSP MCT, 30000mg Fish oil, 6000ui Vitamin D (Same as yesterday)

    I'm slowly working on cutting out almond butter from my salad dressing and replacing it with tahini. After mark's post on nuts I'm thinking I should re-evaluate how I approach them.

    I swear I could go primal easily at your house! Well, except for the ketchup:-) I think yogurt for me is what ketchup is for you. It just goes with everything!

    Mmm, yes - need to start that picture log again. My camera phone ran out of space so I kept on running out of space/having to delete stuff and it got annoying. Will clear the Blackberry some space tonight.

    You can backup photos using blackberry desktop manager instead of deleting them.

    Oh, the double dose thing would scare me. I can't have that happen at work or my boss might freak out on me. Quite a few of us are changing our eating habits (only two are primal), so there's been some interesting overheard conversations at work, lol.

    So today was a day off for me. Everyone needs that extra one I guess. Perfect day for spring cleaning! Spent the morning doing that and now my place is fresh and clean and smells nice and looks nice! Love it!

    Food for the day

    Breakfast- IF (Accidentally skipped getting caught up in cleaning)

    Lunch- Omelet (2 slices of bacon, orange bell pepper, parmigian cheese, mushrooms, goats milk yogurt, folded in 3 eggs), 3 more slices of bacon on the side. Small bowl of pork rinds.

    Dinner- 1/2 rack of ribs, big ass salad

    Supplements- 3000mg of salmon oil, 6000ui vitamin D

    Exercise- 30 minutes frisbee with my roommate (lots of sprinting!), 50 minute barefoot walk (these are becoming quite therapeutic for me!), 100 Air squats for time in (I'm typing them before I'm actually doing them so that means I've gotta go do them then come back with the number...)


    So I've been joking about thermogenesis all week this week with a buddy at work (he insists that 5litres of water a day is the way to go, I joke and say it's the psycho shower) and I thought I'd go for it today just for the hell of it since it came up on Marks Post today. The verdict... It reminds me of my childhood baths/showers, it has a nostalgic element for me that made it almost enjoyable from the get go (once I got in past my junk that is...). All in all I was quite happy with it. Got into the tub first (very slowly) then once I was primed I took a full on shower. And once I'm done those air squats that I promised I would do I figure I'll try another psycho shower before bed.

    ****

    And air squats are done! Gettin rusty after not doing them for a while (plus my calves are fairly stretched from all of the barefoot walking I've gotten in over this gorgeous long weekend. I know, I know... Excuses! But hey! ... wait... I have no arguement...). 100 air squats in 6:24... Damn... Guess this has to come back into my exercise. Took another psycho shower after my workout (sweating hardcore after that mini workout... it's finally hot around here consistently!)

    Bedtime! Night all!
