    Primal Fuel
    Hello gentle grokkers,

    This will be a 2 day update.

    On the first day I was traveling so I had an avocado w/salsa before I left - big mistake. Got hungry on the road. Ended up eating a double cheeseburger (with bun) and a mocha shake and a couple handfuls of fries and a couple sips of diet Mountain Dew before reaching my parents' house!

    Luckily my mom is expertly primal. Sausage and Swiss chard stuffed pumpkin w/a bit of quark cheese and Perrier for dinner.

    Day 2: food making day - we're doing a primal friendly Thanksgiving! Skipped breakfast. Ate leftovers from last night, 2cups of coffee w/cream and maple syrup. Dinner: spaghetti squash w/meat tomato pepper onion homemade sauce w/quark cheese. Went back for 2nds! Perrier.

    Are we ready for turkey day tomorrow?

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Thanksgiving: turkey, awesome primal dressing made with egg and almond meal and chestnuts, apples, craisins, etc. Maple syrup sweetened cranberries, sweet potato, a bit of regular potato, giblets and gravy... uh, some other food I can't remember - all of it primal legal. NO ROLLS. 1 small piece of conventional brandied mince-meat pie. Piece of primal pumpkin pie. White wine, cold duck. Leftovers for dinner. Heavy on the turkey lurkey.

    Black Friday: was a bust food-wise as is the day after black Friday since I drove home.

    Tomorrow it's back on the wagon for me!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    if I'm back on the wagon today brunch with the girls is probably not the best way to start! At least we're going to a restaurant that serves local and organic!

    Brunch: unsugared coffee w/half and half, two over easy eggs on sweet potato/pepper/onion hash surrounded by 6 fried oysters and a bit of home-pickled relish. 1 small piece of toast - I ripped off the crust. Shouldn't have even eaten the toast at all but really it was 4 bites. Didn't get around all the sweet potato "hash" but it was really good!

    All day: nursed a cup of coffee w/cream.

    Dinner: shaved ham, 2 eggs, white cheddar, cream, mascarpone in a skillet. I meant to undercook this mix and so promptly overcooked it which led to gritty cheese and hard eggs. So I added cream cheese - because, you know, why not?

    Very filling day.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Brekkie: Coffee w/cream. Unfortunately the coffee I just bought is burnt tasting. Ugh. I'm going to have to find something to sweeten it up! Used stevia coconut sugar. Then had another and used raw honey

    Lunch: 3 pieces of bacon (pieces and ends, so not whole) and baked up a cauli pizza frittata thing - which was awesome.

    On my 3rd cup of coffee today. Am grading papers. Ugh. However, I did get a roast started in the crock-pot. It should be done, uh, about, 10:30 tonight - which is OK because I have night class.

    Must. Get. Done. Grading.

    Night class.

    Late dinner: pot roast - turned out a bit dryer than usual. 3 bites of pot roast potato, 2 bites of pot roast carrot. Put the rest of the meat back in the pot - dug out the 6 more bites of potato (since it was perfectly done) and I guess I'll let it crock all night!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    back to the daily grind!

    Brekkie: 1 white, 1 red, & 1 purple new potato chopped and fried up into hash browns in bacon fat and roast drippings under a barely cooked egg. Coffee, cream, raw honey. Dang fine breakfast!

    I am so glad the end of the semester is almost here. The schedule I've had this semester has really messed with me. Today was a teaching day again, so no lunch till mid-afternoon. By then I've missed my hunger zone and so am tempted by sugary stuff instead.

    Late lunch: 2 rice cakes with almond butter on one and coconut manna on the other, topped with a bit of jam. Coffee/Cream/Honey.

    Took a nap immediately after eating the sugar.

    Early dinner: Not hungry, but I'm heading into night class. So... pot-roast chili.

    Night class stay-awake snack: Rice Crispies treat and a whole coke. It's been a long time since I had a whole Coke, not diet and drank the whole thing. Hmmm. I'm definitely on the sugar burn now!

    Came home starving (yep. totally sugar burning) Ate a whole bag of microwave rice with microwave eggplant curry on top. Tasted great. But now it's really late and I don't feel like falling asleep - surely I will feel like crap in the morning and regret my sugar craziness.

    Tomorrow I've GOT to cut the rice and not fall prey to the sugar!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    I've hit the crazy part of the semester. So much for cutting the sugar. This is a 2-day post.

    Day 1 started OK with coffee/cream/honey. Then I ended up at Panera while working for lunch: 1/2 sammich, mac and cheese, frozen mocha, chocolate pastry, and I found a coupon for 3 free bagels of which I ate 1 with cream cheese before class, with a chai and cream. Went out and had a beer and a rum and coke.

    Day 2 brekkie: chai tea and cream. Paid dearly for the bread I ate yesterday. Taught and halfway through was starving so I ate a can of deviled ham - straight. Early dinner/late lunch was a salmon sushi. Sparkling mineral water. Then I took a nap. Now it's 8:00 and I feel like working so may or may not eat another meal today!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    it's been a few days since I posted. I'm about 9,000 words farther along in my final papers than when I last posted, however, so that's what I've been up to. I definitely notice a difference in my eating habits when I do not post. I haven't eaten a whole lot but what I have eaten has NOT BEEN GOOD. Plus because I've been sitting on the couch researching and writing my exercise is down to 0. I think the biggest problem, though, is that I made that crock-pot roast (several days ago now) that is just not tasty and it has been sitting in the fridge ever since. I feel guilty if I make anything else because I *should* be eating the roast. I even bought store-made cornbread (bad idea) to eat it with. Just ended up eating the cornbread plain with butter, of course. I should really just throw it out, but I'm poor enough to feel very very guilty doing so. I wish I had a dog I could feed it to! I also bought new coffee that is so bitter I can't drink it without sweetener like I could the other coffee. So, I'll be sweetening my coffee until it's gone.

    Ah well, we'll see what happens today.

    Brekkie: Coffee/Cream/raw honey. I should really eat an egg because I always do better when I have an egg in the morning, but I'm just not hungry.

    Late lunch: Tiny rice noodles in a sour sauce with veggies.

    Night class snacks. Oi Ocha tea. Rice Krispies treat.

    Snacky dinner with the girls after night class: little peppers dipped in hummus, 2 cutie clementines, some crackers and goat cheese, 2 molasses cookies, some sweet potato chips, 2 glasses red wine and a small bit of rum horchata.

    Not a good eating day. Though I did stay away from fast food so I'll call that a win.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Brekkie: Coffee with raw honey AND eggnog. It's going to be a sugared up kind of day again. I am firmly off the low sugar wagon and onto the sugar roller coaster. I'm going to be better about staying away from the wheat products today, though. What I ate last night is really messing up my tummy this morning.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    ugh. I am thoroughly off the wagon, thoroughly stressed, and thoroughly feeling awful. I don't know why I start eating stupid things when I am under end-of-the-semester stress. It just compounds.

    My posts are only containing breakfast because I get so busy later on in the day and then crash at night. 1 more week. Then I'll be back to semi-sanity.

    Brekkie: 1 scrambled egg with sour cream. Tea w/eggnog.

    Taught. Felt alternatively sick to my stomach and ravenous.

    Late lunch: Ravenous. Grabbed a Little Ceasar's hot and ready breadsticks and pepperonni pizza. Ate the entire breadsticks and 2 pieces of pizza.

    Skipped dinner. Sat on couch all afternoon and evening working on a paper. Feel like crapola.

    Riding the rollarcoaster over here. Don't mind me.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    must survive a Christmas Party and eating dinner out with friends today. Determined to be better than I was yesterday because I CANNOT believe I bought an entire Little Ceasar's pizza. I am just not thinking logically when it comes to food at all. I'm a single gal, I've NEVER been able to come close to eating a whole pizza! I purposefully left it out on the counter all night so that I have a reason to throw it away today.

    Brekkie: Coffee w/nog.
