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™‚

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.

Weekend Highlights – Muse!, Rice!, and Opinionated Orange Juice

This weekend started out great with the Muse concert! It was an amazing concert. I ended up having to take a benadryl half-way through the show, thanks to the jerks who decided to smoke pot inside the venue.

Rice! My grain-day treat this weekend was this fabulous rice, chicken, and tomato dish made by my girlfriend. Yum πŸ™‚

Opinionated Orange Juice. I bought the delicious combo pictured below while at the store on Saturday, and as soon as I grabbed it, I was offered the opportunity to take a survey and get a $10 gift card. So…I decided to give it a try. The lady conducting the survey was very nice, but I couldn’t provide her with any nice words about the product she was getting opinions on: low calorie orange juice. I made it very clear that I thought the product was disgusting and that I would never consider buying it. Sorry not sorry…ew sucralose.

This stuff is delicious. It is not sucralose swill.
