B: Two chocolate waffles with butter.
L: Sliced beef steak on stirfried veges. Cheese slices. Mandarin.
S: Apple and almond butter, cucumber and cheese slices.
D: Grilled hamsteaks, pineapple and onion rings, and courgette. Grated carrot, cucumber slices, parsley.
Leathery pear and blueberry dessert - a primal experiment which, while edible, definitely needs some adjustments.
Very hungry again today after yesterday's exercise and cycling to town today.

Today I drank the juice off the tinned pineapple and pears I opened.
Water when I exercise. And then a cup of tea as well. I am addicted.
I don't like coffee or alcohol. Occasionally I will have a hot chocolate. That's about it.
I've always preferred to eat my treats (chocolate over wine any day). Now that I've found primal, every meal is a treat to me.

i prob should drink more tea and less coffee. do you do gumboot with milk or cream when you say tea? my mum used to drink gallons of tea. she was always so fussy about having to warm the teapot first and having her tea in a bone china mug.

Don't understand the term "gumboot" sorry, but I do make it properly with leaves in the teapot and love to drink it from china teacups. Yes I add milk, have changed from skim to blue top or even silver top since going primal.
When my dh makes for me he warms the pot and even turns it three times and all that and it is the BEST.

gumboot tea is just your normal run of the mill tea. dilmah vs earl grey or lapsang souchong etc. i actual think my mum used to take her own bone china tea cup when she left home for any reason LOL dad drunk coffee. and so do i. i do go thru phases of drinking tea and i prob should more. earl grey tea with cream is so nice.

Dilmah yes. It's my favourite. Not terribly refined taste I'm afraid.
I don't mind earl grey but it's not that fantastic that I would buy it regularly. Sometimes I like to try difft herbal teas at a tea shop, but again I'm just as happy with my usual brew.
Wow, your mum really was obsessed with the china! Cute.

My daughter turned down fizzy drink today. A primal action if ever I saw it.
When she left home a year ago I had never even heard of primal. Then I changed everything and she has come home to the new regime, lol.
She's pretty well on it as long as she is in the house, because she has no money and basically has to eat what I provide. I believe she is growing healthier as a result, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she's actually on board with it all. She is slim but was definitely carb-addicted.
Seeing her choose NOT to ingest the drinks (that friends brought over) showed me she is thinking at last about what goes in her body. Makes me happy.

That is a turning point.
Now I can't even imagine why I ever drank sodas or even juice.
