Whole30 – Day 18 & 19: Celebration time!

Yesterday my husband and I put in an offer to buy a pretty cool apartment in the city – and by the afternoon our offer had been accepted!  Soo exciting.  I just had to celebrate this big life occasion – it’s our first home not renting and we are soo looking forward to it! So…

Whole30 – Day 17: No more eggs!

Today I woke up and was starving and wanted to scoff like a whole bowl of muesli with yogurt and milk… I didn’t.  I ate a banana and made some scrambled eggs, and left the house not feeling very satisfied and definitely feeling over eggs. Need to look up some recipes for smoothies so I…

Whole30 – Day 16: Paleo not Paleolithic

Ok over the mid-way hump now! Yesterday and today I have been hungrier than normal – thinking I might need to eat more, but feeling like I am already eating really decent sized meals – hmm…. also crazy chocolate crazing again oh ow… Food For Thought: Read an article today that focused on modern “paleo eaters”…

Whole30 – Day 15: Half Way

Half way – woo!  Still feeling really good. Today I made zucchini fritters for breakfast.  These were super easy; I mixed together: 1x large grated zucchini 1x grated carrot few chopped spring onions/shallots 2x eggs 2x tablespoons coconut flour salt & pepper … then fried in coconut oil for a few minutes each side and served…

Whole30 – Day 14: Loving Paleo!

Two weeks down and I’m feeling pretty damn good. I’ve eaten out a few times now and am used to dissecting the menu and asking waitstaff to modify a meal so that it is paleo friendly, and I really don’t feel like I’m missing out because  the paleo food is soo delicious and I’m feeling…

Whole30 – Day 13

I can’t believe I’m at day 13 – so close to halfway!  A few people today commented on how clear my skin was looking – bonus! I’ve eaten out for the last 3 meals and think I’ve done pretty well managing to avoid all alcohol on offer – which included cocktails, champagne, and top quality…

Whole30 – Day 12: Ssam Pork

Whoa super sleep-in – slept too late and missed my Pilates class dammit. Body still detoxing I think as I’m feeling a bit tired and head-achy today. Put on my skinny jeans this morning and was pleasantly surprised to find they were less tight. Let’s just say they were well on the muffin-toppy side 12…

Whole30 – Day 11: paleo restrictive?

One thing Paleo gets critisised for is being a restrictive diet – because yes we are cutting out whole food groups here. But the thing is I really don’t feel like I am denying myself food. I feel like I’m actually eating a lot, and I’m generally feeling really satisfied by these meals, so that…

Whole30 – Day 10: Eeep Butter!

Whole30 fail.  I just ate some hollandaise sauce…. So breakfast this morning was out with some workmates before the daily grind.  The new gastro-pub down the road was offering FREE breakfast as a promotion for  their kitchen opening.  The breakfast menu was somewhat limited – lots of bread, gluten-ified fritters, bircher muesli, etc – not…

Whole30 – Day 9: Biggest Loser!

Meal 1 – breakfast frittata with ham and veg & small serve Eat Drink Paleo’s Chai Banana Porridge Meal 2 – roasted capsicum stuffed with lamb mince and Italian herbs with beans and spinach Snack…
