I am subbing because I'd love to get some good ideas here... because my family's diet could be much better.

Granted, it could be much worse, too! Tonight we had baked tilapia, fresh steamed green beans, creamed corn and brown basmati rice... lunch was natural peanut butter sandwiches with pineapple fruit spread (NOT jelly - yuck) on sourdough bread, with pretzels and sliced bananas.... but breakfast for the kids was cold cereal (Honey Bunches for DD, Rice Chex for DS) while me and Lil'Man had oatmeal and shared an english muffin with Smart Balance and cinnamon.

There's room for improvement... so I'm gonna be lurking for ideas!!

Breakfast: oatmeal with butter and a bit of maple syrup. Which kept me full for all of one minute I think I just got definitive proof that I need some good protein to balance out breakfast carbs.
Lunch/Snack: some dried apricots, canned tuna on sourdough rye with olive oil, black pepper, and rucola
Dinner: baltic herring filets (bones stay in) filled with dill from the freezer, sea salt, and pepper and dredged in ww flour, then fried in ghee, boiled potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts with olive oil and sea salt.

Sorry I've been AWOL, I've been sick. So I really haven't been eating a whole lot.
But my husband made some amazing food last night I had to share. I got some local grass-fed lamb sausage at the farmer's market last week, and my husband cooked it up in some oil and garlic and I swear they were little links of heaven! UGHHH. He served them with broccoli and brussels sprouts. So good.

For lunch yesterday I had yogurt with a bit of honey and a mug of bone broth.

Breakfast was bacon and throat coat tea (my favorite even when I'm not sick).

Feeling better today, so hopefully I'll be up to par for the big round of festivities this weekend.

This all sounds so good.

I know what you mean about oatmeal in the morning. If I do I have to have some meat or a 1/2 cup of beans. Or even almond butter mixed in with oats is really good.

Sorry I haven't been updating much, been offline a lot the past few days.

Today I had buttered pumpkin for breakfast, dd had oatmeal with cream and butter.

Last night, tilapia fried in butter with butternut squash mixed with cream, butter, peas and salt and pepper.

For lunch yesterday we had a baked potato that we split with butter, sour cream, broccoli, cheese, green onions, salsa and bacon.

Breakfast yesterday was eggs with ham, bacon, avocado and fried in butter, topped with salsa.


I need to start fermenting my own salsa.


We did our supps each day.

Ohhh I wish I could get fresh almond butter here... I can get it in a jar but it's exorbitantly priced and after fresh ground I just can't go back.
We actually didn't have the herring after all as the kitchen was a mess and I got lazy - will have to make it tomorrow. Instead we had some delicious fresh local pastured lamb sausage and the rest of the rucola with olive oil.
I think almost everything posted here sounds so good! That's the joy of the TF board: reading about real food with creative ingredients!

Can you go on ebay? I got bulk really raw low spray almonds for $3 lb and free shipping. I just had to buy 20 lbs at once.
I soaked, dried and then ground them. So yummy!!

Oh wow, that's great! I don't know I'll have to check. I wonder about the shipping though - I live so far away from anywhere that it probably wouldn't be free for me.

Today's meals

Breakfast/Lunch: Sour rye with butter, a cup of beef bone broth, some sauerkraut
Dinner: the herring, potatoes and brussels sprouts I meant to make yesterday

Oooh, glad to see this thread up!

Yesterday I got a chance to work on grain-free versions of some thanksgiving favorites and made a really yummy cauliflower & sausage stuffing to go with the turkey, and a green bean casserole from scratch with bacon and onions (though I did have to use some rice flour to thicken the gravy...). Really, really good, and I didn't even wind up in a carb coma.

Today was leftovers for breakfast and we're planning to make turkey/bacon/brie/cranberry sandwiches (mine will be on coconut flour english muffins) for lunch/dinner. (I don't think we could possibly have room for both, lol).

Since the almond pasteurization requirement was passed last year (two years ago?) all "raw" almonds here are actually pasteurized. If they're conventional, they're chemically pasteurized with a chemical shown to be carcinogenic in humans. If they're organic "raw", they're heat pasteurized.

I haven't seen any follow up that changes these requirements...

I am totally aware about these changes. Yes they have to be pasturized, but it is like raw milk, you can get it from the farm and it can still be raw. The person that listed their almonds on ebay is the almond grower and they are really raw, no heat or chemicals at all. That is why I was sharing because it is a good deal for really raw almonds. And when I contacted the grower, he said that he only used sprays when the blossoms were out, so I would consider that lower spray. Way more afordable than certified org almonds in the store that are $15 lb and not really raw anyway.

You don't if the companies that make bulgar do it the traditional way. I doubt they do, and bet they make it as fast as possible. It is like couscous, it was a tradtional food, and would be great for you, since it was presoaked, but if you are a large scale company, it is probably going to be made fast and then not TF.

Recovering from a stomach bug here, so all posts are subject to change as I go along, haha.

Breakfast: coconut flour pancakes with butter & apple slices for the boys

Snack will be: strawberry smoothie...sounds just right this morning. and maybe some coffee.

Lunch: Still more leftover Thanksgiving food, but the boys are growing increasingly weary of it.

Dinner: Maybe turkey tacos? Or soup with the turkey broth that's been simmering for the last 48 hours. Soup would be better for us, but the tacos sound delicious. Will post later.

Can't believe I haven't posted here yet!

B: Three fried eggs, about 5oz bacon, 2/3 c grapes, and a mug of Irish Breakfast tea

L: Leftover turkey, cucumber with unrefined salt, a few more grapes, one chocolate truffle from WF (made with CO! yay!)

D: bone on/skin in chicken breast with very un-TF BBQ sauce (bad habit, can't break it- I love the stuff), turnip greens sauteed in lard and simmered in bone broth and garlic if dd wakes up from her nap in time or, if not, green beans.

ETA: Two more truffles for dessert.

I've also had about a quart of nettle tea with about 1/2 T raw honey and 12oz bone broth as well as my Raw Calcium supplement, CLO, and some Vit E. I hate the Vit E- a natural source is totally important to me, but basically, that's either soy or wheat germ. Since I'm gluten intolerant, I'm now taking a soy based Vit E supplement (I'm allergic to most E-rich foods).

Breakfast: some truly awful porridge with dried apricots, a fried egg. This was my first experience with soaking steel cut oats and I think I need to look up some of the past oatmeal threads...

Lunch: a non-TF mozzarella sandwich since I was out and starving and broke all at the same time

Snack: rye toast with butter, cheese, and avocado, a few lacto-fermented green tomato pickles, half a large boiled beet

Dinner: rest of the stew and pea soup

Breakfast: four scrambled eggs, 1/3 cup grapes, mug of Irish Breakfast tea

Lunch: Chipotle! Carnitas bowl with no rice or beans, twice the meat, lots of guac, mild salsa, lettuce, and cheese/sour cream. (Were really lucky- our local Chipotle uses Polyface pork so I honestly never feel guilty about eating there), a few strawberries, maybe a truffle

Dinner: 1/2 lb steak cooked in bacon fat, slow cooked kale with bacon, garlic, and turkey stock.

Dessert: 1/2 of a Sweet Riot bar- waaay too much sugar for me and I felt all weird after I finished, but yum.

Other stuff: About a quart of nettle tea w/a bit of raw honey, mug of bone broth, Raw Calcium and Vit E supplement, CLO

seems a bit low on protein, but there were 6 eggs in the coconut 'loaf' and I ate 2/3 of it!
