Another inspiring thread!

Well the day is early for me, but I started off with a big hunk of brie (eating it alone without any bread or crackers is extremely decadent), a few slices of salami and a hot chocolate made with half n half.

The day can only be a good one when it starts with brie and chocolate.

I agree with you
One thing I forgot to add that bluebirdmama's post reminded me of. I have an extremely late schedule (like, I am awake from 12 noon to 2-4 AM ... this is possible because I am a student and my classes are in the afternoon and I work from home) and it is probably the least healthy thing in my life right now. I would really like to be in bed by midnight-1 AM at the latest for starters, then shift it earlier if I can. So I will add that to my posts too. Today I have totally failed though, it's 2:15 AM as I write this

Whoah! We are in tune today crunchy_mama!

B-sausage w/ eggs, fried in ghee, plus my green smoothie
L-roasted chicken leg (leftover from yesterday), a green salad w/ sweet peppers and EVOO & vinegar for dressing and some grape juice kefir
S-homemade sunflower and pumpkin seed chocolate chip cookies (too many! I was stuffed!), and the rest of my green smoothie
D-more sausage (way lazy--didn't feel like making anything special!), another salad, potato chips (made in the oven w/ EVOO--I'm hoping to get lard to start frying them in soon!) and some cultured veggies

Here's my as well--I usually get most of these things in every day too (or try to! I've been skimping on the liver a bit lately! )

ETA: Made a mango lassi-ish drink w/ coconut milk, frozen mango (ok, totally not local, and not sure it's in season ) w/ a little banana for sweetness (did I mention I am crazy about bananas? ) Sooooo yummy! Ds loved it too!

Hi, I'm Rayelle! Mama to one enormous 18 month old-still nursing. And a DH who isn't picky and loves to eat. I desperately want to lose the **** baby weight so I am staying away from white flour and refined sugars completely, and keeping grains to a minimum the best I can. I've lost 3 lbs in the last month which is agonizing to me but I have to just keep trying I guess.

B-soaked oatmeal with dried coconut, raisins, butter, cinnamon, and some palm sugar. (I almost NEVER do oatmeal but we were down to one egg.) coffee with milk.

B pt. 2-a bite of sausage and a couple bites of egg that DS didn't finish

snack-string cheese and a Larabar

L-leftover zuppa toscana soup (potato, chicken stock, bacon, spicy sausage, kale)

snack-plain yogurt mixed with Hempshake protein

D-green salad with avocado, carrot, mushrooms. Garlicky cannellini beans, with Italian sausages and tomatoes, one piece of soaked ww bread spread with soft garlic and raw butter.

Oh and a bottle of Boulevard Lunar Ale right now, which I really didn't need but it looked sooo good!

Supplements-pretty much nonexistent. A couple of CLO capsules a few times a week when I remember.

I have been making the peanut butter/raw honey/coconut oil/cocoa pwd balls, and I've been eating a few every night. They definitely hit the spot and I don't crave any junk when I have them. I'm trying to decide if they're beneficial enough to keep eating or if I should try to cut them too.

I just found it yesterday, I had an eggplant I wanted to cook and I didn't want to do eggplant parmesan. It was really good! The "only" things I changed were I used garam masala instead of curry, I used 1 garlic clove and some grated ginger instead of the paste, didn't have any tomatoes or jalepeno, added sweet pepper and peas, and stirred in the yogurt and sour cream after I was done cooking everything.
Mmmm...gonna totally try that!!!

So, I've been going fruit heavy these past couple of days (for some reason, reading so much about carbs etc., and then deciding to put it aside for a bit, I'm now going way overboard on them ) and I've noticed each time I've made a (banana-inclusive) shake/drink I totally get shaky after it! And I only use half a banana to one can coconut milk, and have been drinking maybe 1/2 or less of what I've made... (I don't get the shaky feeling w/ my am green smoothie--I think that is b/c I am eating protein w/ that as well maybe?? Balances it out somehow? Fat does not seem to matter as I've made most of the sweet ones w/ coconut milk...) It's totally like a sugar rush! I think going *lower* carb for me for a VERY short time (um, days!) has allowed me to really feel the difference when I eat a bigger amount of sugary fruit type stuff all at once. Well, at least I'm aware of it --*maybe* I'll stop?? We'll see...

Did I mention I'm crazy for bananas??!

Bananas really do add a nice flavor and sweetness to smoothies. I think the experimenting is good, better to do it because of knowing you need to do it for you then thinking you should do it because of someone else- if that makes sense.

Yeah, totally makes sense--I love experimenting on myself--that's how I really *know* when something works/doesn't work for me.

So I went to the market hall (where they have little stalls selling local/organic/high-quality fresh food) today and bought way more than I had planned (I just went there for a tub of yogurt ). The milk stall had some raw milk left, so I got a liter of that, plus half a dozen small-farm eggs that must be pastured because they are such good quality, and some real cold-smoked bacon. AND passing one of the meat stalls I noticed they were selling these GIANT beef bones for 2.50 each so I bought one for broth. The nice butcher cut up the bone for me into manageable chunks but I am still going to have to make at least two potfuls of broth, and that will be quite rich broth too. So I'm all excited because even though the purchases were not planned they were reasonably priced and will add a lot of goodness to our diet. Yay!

Today's meals:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with dates and coconut oil

Lunch: Fried bacon and eggs scrambled in the drippings, some homemade sauerkraut

Snack: A whole boiled beet leftover from putting some beets up to ferment.

Dinner: will be a pumpkin and rice soup in chicken bone stock with blue cheese crumbled on top. Never tried this recipe before, will see how it turns out...

Mmm, Boulevard is our local brewery, so we get many goodies from them...but I gave up beer with my grain-free experiment. And I love beer. I bought some of those bottles of hard cider to hold me over, but they are just a little too sweet for me.

And those balls sound really good too, I might make some for my cookie fiend daughter (and maybe I'll eat a couple too, hehe).

So yesterday,
l-buttercup squash cooked with butter and cinnamon. A can of garbanzo beans satueed in coconut oil, and some cheddar cheese grated on top.

d-I WAS gonna bake a chicken, and even though I had transferred it to the fridge from the freezer a couple days ago it was not defrosted. I was too worn out to come up with something else so we went to this family-owned bar and grill near us and I got a "rajun cajun" chicken salad with ranch dressing. Even 6 months ago, I probably would have been fine eating that, but it just didn't feel good. I didn't know exactly what I was eating and I was pretty dang sure it didn't have much nutritional value. Oh well, live and learn.

snacks were the buttercup squash seeds (I just learned somewhere here in traditional foods I think, that there is a shell on squash seeds! I love them so much more now that I know to deshell them) and a Bubbies pickle (another thing I learned about here).

Thread Starter 
So today I started out with some coconut/pumpkin custard that had cranberries in it....I really needed the sweetness and tried extra hard to make it a good compromise. DD had the same.

For lunch~ burger with bacon, avocado and cheese
lunch for dd~ chicken chunks and fried potatoes, again

snack~ more custard....then threw the rest away! I would have kept eating it. Blech.


Same supps today as everyday.

Might have more fish tonight since my meat hasn't thawed out yet.

Coconut pumpkin custard sounds good! What is the recipe?

We had sprouted buckwheat porridge (cooked with maple syrup, raisins, and cinnamon) with milk (Baby just tried the buckwheat without milk) for breakfast.

Lunch: Baby had leftover black beans cooked in chicken stock with carrots (he LOVES them), I had chicken salad with homemade mayonnaise, DH and kids had sandwiches on packaged bread (I'm wheat-free so if I don't make wheat-free bread, they just have store-bought )

Dinner: Am making acorn squash stuffed with ground turkey
post #37 of 129
I have three teens and a dh, but I am not going to bother listing what they eat. None of us have sensitivities that we diet for, although I do try to avoid most carbs as much as I can.

So, let me see. Yesterday I had two cups of decaf coffee before work, and an apple at my desk around 10 am. I'm not a huge morning eater at all. For lunch I had leftover shrimp curry and a big glass of milk. Mid afternoon I inhaled half a package of grape tomatoes. For supper I had liver and onions fried in bacon fat, along with previously baked potatoes fried up in bacon fat. After supper I tasted the kombucha and since it wasn't ready yet I had a couple of drinks made with rum mixed with home made lemonade (lemons, honey and water)

Today is looking much the same I just realized! Green tea, apple, leftover curry (with some leftover roast mixed in this time), milk, tomatoes. For supper we're having tuna noodle casserole. Supper isn't TF because everything in it comes from a can - canned tuna, canned tomatoes which I did not can myself (although they are organic), grated cheese which is not raw milk cheese or home made, and pasta which is store bought, although it's also organic. It's a huge kids favorite at my place and was requested many many times over the last couple of months so tonight's the night

Tomorrow I think I want to roast a chicken but I'll have to see if I remember to take it out of the freezer tonight. I should also boil some eggs to bring to work for my morning sustenance

I did actually get in bed before 1 yesterday, but immediately realized I was starving and had to get up for a snack of blue cheese, sour rye with butter, and homemade blackcurrant jam... And then slept till 12 again How am I ever going to break this habit?

Today breakfast: bacon, scrambled eggs in the fat, a glass of homebrew, a couple dates

late lunch/dinner: leftover chicken and turnips and potatoes fried in ghee, roasted brussels sprouts with olive oil and sea salt

dinner/snack: munching at a friend's place on the way home from a movie, got myself a loaf of whole wheat sourdough and can of tuna and pack of rucola, ate with olive oil. Yummy and satisfied me in terms of healthiness, but then she offered me a chocolate soy pudding cup and I ate it, which made me all bloated I can't believe the packaging was trying to pass it off as healthy...
