    :P Starting to think weekend updates are just not going to happen too much in the summer. I'll probably move to a model of what I ate that wasn't primal over posts that I don't put up. Thankfully this weekend was 100% primal so I'm happy to report that.

    Journal for Yesterday

    B- Coconut milkshake with 1 whole banana, strawberries, coconut milk, cocoa

    L- Leftover Taco Stew (essentially I made more of what went on top of the potaco and took the leftovers for lunch, 1/2 avocado.

    D- 2 chicken thighs, BAS with almond butter dressing, 1 square lindt 90

    Supplements and Exercise were both missed unless you want to count my 2 hours out in the sun cleaning my car as exercise and vitamin D

    So yesterday I had 2 people that I see regularly (Co worker and next door neighbour) walk up to me and comment that they could see the difference in me. Once is a nice to have... but two people made me feel good! Must mean that there is a noticeable difference.

    Days are so busy lately I can barely keep up!

    Breakfast- Coconut milkshake with 1/2 banana, strawberries and vanilla.

    Lunch- Chicken thigh, avocado

    Dinner- Burger salad from Johnny frescos... Oddly enough when I had to order a side the only one that was paleo was a salad... So I took my 2 salads and mixed them in a bowl. Used pickled peppers as my extra flavour in lieu of any proper dressing options. There was feta on it which isn't really paleo but not really not paleo

    Not paleo, but acceptable primal. I love feta, although I haven't eaten much of it lately.

    Broil the tomatoes first or after you put the feta on?


    So I get home last night and who's at my place? My nutritionist. Yes I have one... Kind of- He's my bum room mates older brother who's a professional natural path. It's all of the benefits of a nutritionist without the bills though. Heck! He even interpreted my bloodwork for me when I got it in may. It was cool seein him again!

    Food for yesterday

    Breakfast- 2 eggs, coconut milkshake with coconut milk, half banana, and cocoa

    Lunch- Burger Salad (I had ordered a second one on tuesday to be consumed as lunch yesterday)

    Dinner- 4 scrambled eggs, Big ass salad

    Supplements- 2tbsp mct, 3000mg of salmon oil

    Exercise- Nope

    After, so the feta gets beautifully melty.

    Too many weenie jokes ran through my mind. You are a BAD influence, Ecks!

    :P The jokes were only implied! Can't hold me to them


    Food for yesterday

    Breakfast- Paleo cereal- 1/2 cup walnuts, some strawberries and coconut milk

    Lunch- 1/2 a grocery store chicken + 1 leg

    Dinner- chicken wings (burnt to a crisp because I was caught up in a book) and big ass salad

    Supplements- Salmon oil + MCT oil

    Exercise- 30 min barefoot walk


    So I'm feeling good today! Healthy and strong! But at the same time I feel kind of gross- those stretch marks are really highlighting on me today... nasty

    I'm thinking about just having mine tattooed into tiger stripes.
