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).

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 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).

WIAW – April 24

I remembered to take pics! Heck yeah πŸ™‚

Breakfast: mexican-spiced bison and peppers left over from last night, a banana, and a big scoop of coconut oil. I also had a delicious coconut milk latte.

Between meals I had 1 g of L-glutamine.
Lunch was more left over bison and a giant bowl of veggies (asparagus, onion, mushroom, sweet potato) with nutritional yeast and hemp seeds. I also had an iced green tea (no water, unsweetened).

My pre-allergy shot snacks were a banana, beef jerky, and some pumpkin seeds.

And after grocery shopping I nommed on some olives–not the whole bowl!

For dinner we had salmon, roasted potatoes, and zucchini noodles with asparagus and onions. I also had a small bowl of craisins for dessert.

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.

2013-04-10 12.15.19

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.

WIAW – March 20

Welcome to “What I ate Wednesday – sickness edition”

I am on my second day of being stuck in bed with a nasty sinus and upper respiratory infection. Super gross.

Breakfast was a small portion of cauliflower potato soup.

2013-03-20 10.38.31

By lunch time I had a craving for salmon, so I mixed a can up with some avocado and had a side of veggies. Sorry for the really ugly picture.

2013-03-20 14.33.40

I snacked on some of these dried cherries, but tried not to have too many since they do have added sugar.

2013-03-20 16.57.22

Dinner time…more soup! And broccolini. My photo won’t upload, but you get the idea πŸ™‚
