WIAW – April 10

I always seem to forget that it is Wednesday! I think I should work on making coffee at home so that I have a chance to wake up before breakfast.

Breakfast: white rice with spinach and chicken broth, sauerkraut, a beef pemmican stick from US Wellness Meats, and some coconut maca balls (I promise I didn’t eat the whole plate!). I also had an iced coconut milk latte, which will be my summer addiction for sure.

My gf made the best lunch ever. Curried veggies and sauerkraut.

I had pumpkin seeds and a banana for a pre-allergy-shot snack. Followed by kombucha since I had to make a stop at the grocery store πŸ™‚

Weekend Highlights: Flip flops! Iced latte! And Internet publishing

SUNSHINE!!!

It looks we are finally into spring πŸ™‚ I am not looking forward to my eventual battle with pollen, but right now, it is beautiful, sunny, and I have my windows open!

Breaking out my flip flops was a major highlight this weekend. They were a little dusty but I didn’t mind.

I was also able to enjoy my first iced coconut milk latte outside in the sun and without a coat (in my super cute insulated klean kanteen)

The third highlight this weekend was getting an article published. I recently signed up for an account at infobarrel.com and submitted my first article. You can check it out here Garlic: Health Friend or Foe?Β πŸ™‚

And now, I am off to play with my food processor and get ready to make some bun-less guacamole bacon burgers with some amazing grass-fed ground beef from US Wellness Meats.

WIAW – April 3

Today had some pretty high highs and pretty low lows in terms of food.

Breakfast was a highlight today: beef/liver meatball, sauerkraut, plantain crackers with a little coconut oil, and some coconut crack balls with maca powder blended in.

Lunch was a lowlight: I was at a work event during lunch, which happens very rarely. The hosts were really attentive and accommodating–they contacted the catering company so I would have a special lunch. When I got my lunch, it was labeled “gluten-free” but not “dairy-free”… blar. I ate some of the sandwich contents, but the spices gave me a headache 😦 Thankfully, I followed the good advice of all savvy restricted eaters and brought some snacks. However, beef jerky, plantain crackers, and sprouted pumpkin seeds are not very satisfying. Back at work, I supplemented with more random snacks. Better than nothing, but not an enjoyable lunch. Out of the $5 fancy box, I only ate the hummus and crackers.

Dinner was much better: salmon, white rice, sauerkraut, asparagus, and bacon with some candied ginger for dessert.
