WIAW – June 12

And, I’m back on track! Nothing too exciting for what I ate today, but I am happy to be back on track with my blog posts, and I am VERY happy to have this awesome summer weather. We are hitting mid-90’s temperatures with some classic STL humidity, and it feels wonderful. I am definitely looking for every excuse to go outside during the day.

Breakfast- so in love with this beef liver pate….can’t help it (recipe coming soon).

Lunch- leftover veggie hash from dinner last night: sweet potato, onion, brussels sprouts, asparagus, mushrooms, and carrots with canned salmon.

Snacks- a banana and some homemade apple chips from my new dehydrator!

Dinner-a wedge salad with bacon, asparagus, carrots, and some rotisserie chicken from whole foods

WIAW – May 15

I feel like I spent my entire day running in circles, when I really just sat in a cubicle all day. My poor adrenal glands…

Breakfast: I am still obsessed with beef liver pate, plantain crackers, kombucha, and brussels sprouts.

Grabbed a banana for a snack, followed by this huge salad for lunch.

Afternoon snack: delicious Kind bar. Not a bad flavor, but not really my favorite thing to snack on.

Dinner: bison burger with mushrooms overΒ arugulaΒ with zucchini and yellow squash. Amazing.

WIAW – May 1

More like Lame 1. I would just like to say that I started out the day so well, and then I spent 3 hours straight in meetings and my brain turned to mush. And so, I now present “What I ate (for breakfast) Wednesday.”

Today I had turkey/liver meatballs, sweet potato with coconut oil, and a pear.

Lunch (not pictured, ugh) was a salad with romaine, arugala, carrots, onions, avocado, olives, and salmon with the most amazing honey mustard dressing.

Dinner was some sweet potato fries (check out my Twitter feed for theΒ one photo), and grilled tuna steak.

During the day I also snacked on some plaintain chips and raw honey (omg yum).

I am a #wiaw picture-taking failure.

I had a banana and a serving of pistachios before allergy shots.

2013-04-17 14.13.31

Post allergy shot snack was some aloe juice and hard-boiled eggs.

Dinner was this awesome salad with boston lettuce, salmon, potatoes, tomatoes, and asparagus with honey mustard dressing. Β We also had some plantain crackers and blackberries for dessert.

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 27

Breakfast: liver(!), bacon, mushrooms, onions, and a mix of squash, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. I also had orange juice with maca powder, a B vitamin supplement, and a cup of bone broth (not pictured).

My breakfast in the process of being cooked. I actually made this on Monday night and had it for breakfast yesterday as well.

Lunch: I forgot to take a picture! Crap. I had the sameΒ mix of squash, potatoes, and sweet potatoes, now topped with arugala, asparagus, mushrooms and a little shredded chicken. I also had some green tea with honey.

After getting my allergy shots, I did some dinner shopping at Whole Foods and left with some pumpkin seeds and a ginger kombucha for a snack. yummmmmmmm…

Dinner was a delicious bison steak (well, half of one) with bok choy, broccolini, and some awesome fermented veggies.

I bought the cabbage, beet, ginger, pear combo for my first try of wildbrine fermented veggies. They were amazing! I can’t wait to try the other combos.
