Epipen-Wielding Real Food Eating

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.

WIAW – March 6

Here’s what I ate today…

I was running a little late this morning, so breakfast was smoked salmon and some steamed potatoes (which I ate on my way to work).

I barely remembered to grab a pic of lunch, but I had some cauliflower rice, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, and onion.

For dinner I had cauliflower rice with roasted veggies (sweet potato, butternut squash, onions, mushrooms, red and purple potatoes) and broccolini.

And, snacks were candied ginger (yum!), a banana (not pictured), and chips (bad…).

I also had to sample some of my shipment from US Wellness Meats, which arrived today. This is the best beef jerky I have ever had.

Weekend Highlights: Coconut oil (in my coffee), Salmon, and Pizza

I feel like this weekend disappeared! Part of that might be due to the 3-hour nap I took on Saturday, but after getting up early to purchase Fall Out Boy tickets, I needed some rest πŸ™‚ It was a good thing we got up early, too, because every venue is now sold out!

And, so, the randomness from my weekend…

We may have eaten this entire bag of ginger candy from World Market.

Our trip to Costco resulted in salmon...a lot of salmon.

OMG coconut oil coffee.

This coffee was so tasty. There is no creamer in it. I added 2 tsps of coconut oil and used a hand blender to emulsify it.

We ended the weekend with a cheese-less, gluten-free pizza from Pi.
