    Hello gentle grokkers,

    This weekend continues to be poor as far as eating goes.

    Brekkie: Coffee/Cream/Maple syrup. Leftover Enchilada casserole from last night. Gut is unhappy with me (duh). I'm tired (duh). So I spread out in the sun and took a nap, which was lovely. Woke refreshed.

    Lunch: After nap Coffee/Cream/Maple syrup.

    Dinner: Took a stab at making dirty rice. I'm trying to get more offal in my diet and had free range Turkey innards to use.

    Rice, carrot, Turkey gizzard, heart, and liver, shiritake shrooms, onion, garlic, paprika, salt, tobasco in leftover lard/chicken drippings. Didn't stick to my cast iron at all.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    2 day post here. Yesterday I had 2 cups of coffee w/nasty creamer/sweetener at work. I must be better about that! Lunch was taking myself to a Thai restaurant for a curry fix. Unfortunately the curry and the green tea were not very good so I consoled myself with a chocolate "dome" which, as far as cheats go, was gorgeous. However this consoling myself is a bad habit to get into! For dinner I had the rest of the dirty rice and a Perrier. So it was a high carb day yesterday.

    Today:
    Brekkie: coffee/cream/maple syrup in a jar to warm me as I stand out in the cold for 30 min. Because my bus was 10 min. Early and I missed it. Ah well, it was a pretty morning (if cold) with no wind.

    Forgot my lunch but I'm done w/work at 3 today. Can I make it?

    Didn't make it. I've been eating too poorly lately. Had a bratwurst with bun and sauerkraut and mustard. A scotcheroo, and a sweet roibus tea latte. Only ate 30 min. Ago and I'm already crashing. Ugh. It's going to be a long 2 hours!

    Oh gentle grokkers,

    I have been a very bad girl these last 3 days. I'm having trouble getting into the swing of working regular hours. As a consequence I have not cooked, have eaten crap, and felt the same! I'm determined to get my lazy butt in gear.

    Brekkie:maple syrup, cream, coffee. It saddens me but I really need to kick the syrup habit in my coffee.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    It's Sunday and I'm making myself meals for the next week so we don't have a repeat of the disaster of last week.

    Brekkie: coffee/cream/maple syrup
    Lunch: Salmon w/cumin and paprika and bernaise sauce.

    Trying a new technique for cooking salmon because I hate flipping it. Yep, that's a grill pan with a pyrex bowl over it.

    salmon bernaise.jpg
    Finished product.

    Verdict: Great salmon method. I like a tender moist salmon. The bernaise sauce was great. The cumin/paprika I'll omit next time.

    Right now I'm brewing some spaghetti sauce (I make a mean spag sauce.) and it smells soooo good. Unfortunately I cooked up a bad spaghetti squash to put it over. Had to throw out the squash. I'll have to go grab another spaghetti squash or zuchinni this afternoon. Unexpected trip to the grocery store. Oh well.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Well, yesterday was bad. Ended up at a Chinese buffet.
    Took a nap then had yogurt banana for dinner. Gained 5 lbs of bloat. I looked ridiculous!

    Back on the wagon today and feeling better. Brekkie: 2 scrambled eggs w/cream cheese, coffee/cream/honey.
    Lunch @ work: sweet peppers raw w/pepperoni in cheese ball. Apple, in some maple butter. (Of which I only ate 1/3) Still high carb but not like yesterday!

    I'm supposed to do aqua vortex tonight with a friend. Ready for sanity.

    Did aqua vortex.

    Had homemade spag sauce over zucchini noodles. Then had half a package of cottage cheese. (I love fresh cottage cheese, but it starts tasting sour to me at 2 days so I have to eat it fast!)

    Going to try goat milk over rice cereal before bed. We'll see if I can handle goat milk - it's the evaporated canned stuff. So... the canned milk is decent over rice cereal. We'll see if I can use it in coffee next.

    I'm quite proud of myself that I have made a full meal for lunch at work tomorrow. If I can manage to remember to bring it to work, we'll be all set!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Brekkie : half a smoothie w/banana, kiwi, berries, and yogurt. Too tart for my taste!
    Lunch: zucchini spaghetti with pepperoni, cheese ball, leftover apple from yesterday, a bit of maple butter.
    Zumba! For an hour!
    Dinner: Panchero's rice bowl with pork, sour cream, cheese, and salsa.

    I did great today! Then I went out and had 2 wheat beer pints :P

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    I have two fit friends who eat all the time (fairly healthy, even by primal standards) but who don't at all get enough fat in their diets. Boy are they grumpy when meal time is 30 minutes late! So glad to be free from that.

    Brekki: coffee/cream/maple syrup x2. Interviewed someone at a Caribou Coffee. Had a small chai there.
    Lunch: 5 small sweet red peppers with cheese ball. Also, some sweet peas with cheese ball.

    Then, ah, gentle grokkers, I was doing so well. Then a friend gave me a Moravian sugar cake... and I ate half. Had quite a sugar rush.

    Then I went to aquavortex and (I hope) worked some of that sugar off.

    Then I came home and made turkey nuggets. Here are the turkey nuggets in process:

    I used this recipe: http://www.multiplydelicious.com/the...leo-bbq-sauce/

    Here are the turkey nuggets complete.
    turkey nuggets2 (1024x768).jpg

    They turned out good, if... squeaky. I don't know exactly what that "squeak" is but it's similar to asparagus squeak on my teeth. These are going to be great to take for late lunch after Zumba tomorrow!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Crazy Friday: Brekkie: rest of the sugar cake, coffee/cream/honey
    Zumba Zumba!
    Lunch: 3 leftover turkey nuggets (that were awesome lukewarm), peapods dipped in cold-press cheese.
    Dinner: 2 oranges dipped in dark chocolate... meant to make zuchinni spag but that didn't happen as a result...
    10 o'clock Dinner take 2: Taco Bell burrito supreme with a fruitista freeze. We went to a piano bar but I was good and didn't have any alcohol at all.

    Crazy Saturday:
    Brekkie: A few last sips of the fruitista freeze to stem my sugar-induced headache I woke up with. 2 eggs w/jack cheese and sour cream and taco sauce. Coffee/cream/maple syrup.
    Lunch: sammich w/lots of turkey and cheddar. Bread made me feel tired all afternoon. Coffee/cream/maple syrup.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    well I started a new job and got back into the school semester - which is why I haven't been here. Been skipping breakfast (due to time and snow and cold and dark in the morning), drinking lots of coffee at work, bringing my lunch and eating it at my desk - which has been fairly healthy, and eating better at night since I have less time to be social.

    I do Zumba twice a week and AquaVortex twice a week. I may be starting Piloxing and/or fitness yoga as well.

    I need to start bringing my brekkie to work! It's ridiculous how much food I need to pack around though.

    Food is going lukewarm. I have good days and bad days. I've started tracking things via MyFitnessPal because it's easy to use on my iPad. We'll see how number tracking helps me out.

    I'm addicted to sugar, true, but I also think I probably eat more of even the good stuff than I should be. Maybe logging things via a number counter will help? We'll see.

    I've still not lost nor gained. However there's a big mood/energy difference as well as huge and obvious digestion differences when I eat plants and meat instead of grains and sugar.

    I'll keep plugging away at it and post here when I can.
