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!

Lots of yummy leftovers to eat today!  Still looking for the 3.30pm sweet fix, but seem to be able to manage it for now. 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…

Whole30 – Day 8: Taking Stock

So with my first week down I took a few moments today to reflect on progress: do I feel any different? have my energy levels changed? is the paleo way of eating difficult? do I enjoy the food? am I having cravings? what am I missing out on? It is probably too early in the…

Whole30 – Day 7: Coffee Expo!

I had to work at an important event this morning (Event Manager by day), so quickly made Eat Drink Paleo’s Chai Banana Porridge before heading out the door. The porridge tasted good and made my belly warm, but I felt it was just too nutty and didn’t feel like finishing the serving.  I grabbed a…
