    Hello gentle grokkers,

    feel groggy from last night's carb fest - like I stayed up till 3 a.m. But I didn't. I was in bed by 1 a.m.

    Stressful day today. Haven't decided if I'll be staying on campus all day or not. We'll see.

    No breakfast.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    had just about the most stressful end of the week I've had during my PhD program - due to my PhD program. Luckily I should be slightly less stressed now. Ate a lot of grainy things, though, but my overall hunger was definitely depressed. I gained 4 pounds in 3 days. Probably mostly water weight but I feel like crap. Looking forward to getting back on the wagon.

    Brekkie: Coffee, Cream, some special sugar that is 1/2 coconut sugar, 1/2 stevia. I'll work on pushing that back down to zero.

    Lunch: Skipped.

    Dinner: Friendsgiving. Red wine, white wine, ham, potato, quinoa, squash, spinach, salad, 1/2 piece of bread and butter. Bread pudding, apple pie, pumpkin pie, small slices, but tons of sugar. My friends are awesome!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    today I'm going to have a planned off-plan brekkie due to a piece of homemade bread from a friend. Then I NEED MEAT!

    Brekkie: Coffee/Cream/coconut&stevia sugar. French toast.

    Lunch: skipped.

    Early dinner: beef strips w/ teriyaki sauce and mung bean noodle. I hope the beef is ok. It was sitting in my fridge for a few days...

    Well, it tasted fine, but it didn't taste good. So I only ate about a third of it (maybe a 6th pound of beef - so not much) and wasn't at all hungry. So I went to the K- wallyworld and wasn't tempted at all by food there or on the way back home. Then when I got home I got out a bag of Heath bars I'd bought for Halloween, sat on my couch and ate half the bag.

    Ugh. It makes no sense. I wasn't even hungry.

    Full flight of vitamins. First time I had a full flight for a week. (L-Glutamine, Choline, Vit D, Vit C, Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, Cod Liver Oil)

    Everyone around me, including half the people at the conference I was at are sick with a head cold this week and last - I'm not yet, knock on wood! Pounding the Vit. C and washing hands a lot.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    I'm super groggy this morning - wonder if last night's sugar binge has anything to do with that?

    Brekkie: Over very easy egg with cream cheese - soupy egg breakfast! Coffee/Cream/coconut sugar & stevia mix - 1 tsp.

    Lunch: beef strogonoff beef and gravy over cauliflower mash w/butter and a bit of cream.

    If my scale is to be trusted, I just lost 4 lbs in the last 24 hours. WTF?

    Dinner: skipped.

    Damage from night class: rice krispies treat, bowl of disgusting instant kraft mac and cheese, braunschweiger w/grey poupon on a small little hawaiian sweet roll. - Damage from night class looks an awful lot like dinner, doesn't it!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    My gut is definitely paying for the damage from last night. You would think that I would associate this terribleness to the food that causes it eventually!

    Brekkie: Coffee/Cream/coconut sugar & stevia.

    Lunch: leftover roast beef with gravy and cauliflower.

    Dinner: Carlos out with friends - burrito w/a lot of meat - first time I couldn't finish a whole meal at Carlos in quite a while! Unfortunately after dinner I had liquid calories - a margarita, 2 rum and cokes, half a glass of wheat beer.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    not at all hungry this morning. I'm going to take some deviled ham or tuna salad to eat between teaching classes today.

    Brekkie: Cofee/Cream no sugar!

    And I forgot to take any food for lunch. Skipped.

    Dinner: A can of mandarin oranges and juice (sugar spike), 8 rice crackers with blue cheese, half a turkey thigh, bone broth w/two hawaiian rolls (brought on by the oranges, I'm sure) and butter. Coffee/cream/raw, local honey.

    Vit. C.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    not hungry again today!

    Brekkie: skipped.

    Lunch: rice made with the bone broth from last night, leftover turkey in a thai white sauce with carrots.

    Early dinner: Grape-nuts with brown sugar. Ugh. Why do I do this to myself? I have perfectly marinaded steak in the fridge and instead I go for grape-nuts which I HAVE NOT TOUCHED for 3 months! WTF? TeJava.

    Late dinner: the rest of the rice with cheese. Coffee/cream. Might as well eat it up. I'll make the steaks tomorrow.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    will be eating a late brekkie/lunch at a farmer's market today! Hopefully I'll pick up some good food. Not holding my breath about a decent breakfast though.

    There was nothing halfway decent for brekkie. So I fasted as long as possible and had a late breakfast/early lunch: 1 slice of veggie pizza on a very thin crust - didn't eat most of the crust - the veggies were plentiful though!

    Late lunch: salmon and tuna sushi on rice. - I was quite proud of myself for not giving in to something more fast-foodish while traveling.

    Can't-fall-asleep-while-driving snack - a venti frappucino from Starbucks - ie. a sugar bomb!

    Late, late supper: my steak, which by now had been marinading for over 24 hours, pan grilled rare cut up with cheese, half an avocado, and salsa on a small sprouted corn tortilla.

    Hello gentle grokkers,


    Brekkie: Coffee w/almond milk and figs with mascarpone! I feel like royalty today.

    I'm headed to campus on a Sunday to work most of the day. I expect I'll either be skipping lunch or eating a late lunch. I have more figs and mascarpone and steak and avocado just waiting for me! So excited to be eating like this.

    So I ended up on campus until dinner time. Knew I would be once I got into my project, but luckily I had some decent food stashed away in my desk. Lunch: Quinoa with indian veggies in curry.

    Dinner: marinaded steak w/half an avocado, salsa, cheddar, and mascarpone. The rest of the figs with mascarpone. Perrier.

    All in all a successful eating day! (And I got a lot of work done too.)

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    well, I've been experimenting with ways to shut the whole heavy cream in my coffee thing down. I think it's too many calories - although it is pure fat. I've tried coconut milk - blech. Coconut cream - which was good but I might as well be drinking dairy cream. Black is out. And if I put sugar/stevia in it black I have to put so much in that it defeats the purpose.

    hmmmm.

    Brekkie: Coffee w/coconut cream.

    Lunch: Gorgeously lovely day. Was out on main street and decided to go get some tea in a coffeeshop. Was also getting hungry. There were NO options that were decently primal. I splurged - large chai tea and a grilled cheese sandwhich. Halfway through the sammich I started getting a bit nauseated. I didn't end up eating it all. Then I felt kind of bad afterwards. I'm taking this one as a win - the more bad stuff nauseates me the less apt I am to eat it!

    Dinner: Scrounged up 2 lasagna noodles (Dreamfields so - oh who knows the verdict on these. Not primal.). Broke up lasagna noodles, tossed in a can of clams, diced up a tomato, and added a couple large tablespoons of mascarpone. Now I have clam juice in the fridge and am leaving for 4 days... better drink it up quick! But in what?
