Hello friends!! I feel like it’s been a while since I have done a “What I Ate” post.
For the last few months I have been have some digestion/bloating/thyroid/fatigue problems (TMI?) and I have done just about everything under the sun to cure it naturally. As a last resort, I have been doing some research on the Paleo diet.
Now, I hate the word diet. Actually, I loathe it. Let’s be clear, I am not restricting my foods or saying I “can’t” have anything. I am just taking out some grains, dairy, and legumes to see how my body responds. I have also been adding more grass-fed meat into the mix to get some protein.
So far it has been a couple of days and I am feeling tee-rific.
I think a lot of people mistake Paleo for being “eat all the meat all the time” when really, from my understanding, it’s “eat little meat at meals and eat A LOT of vegetables.” Now, that’s a motto and I can live by.
Without further ado, here’s what I have been eating lately:
Breakfast this morning was 2 grass-fed pieces of bacon, 2 organic eggs, about 2 cups of spinach, and 1/4 of an avocado. This was super, super good! I cooked the eggs in some of the fat from the bacon…dee-vine.
Also…I found this little guy on my avocado….ew.
Lunch has been some chicken and vegetables I prepared to eat throughout the week.
The roasted veggies included: 1 sweet potato, 2 small red potatoes, 1 head of broccoli, 2 zucchini, 2 yellow squash, and 3 golden beets. I dressed them in avocado oil, honey, a zesty spice blend, salt and pepper.
For the chicken, I used a recipe from Diane Sanfilippo’s Practical Paleo cookbook that my Aunt lent me. It was a mustard chicken thigh recipe and it looks weird but it was SOOO GOOD.
For a snack, I had a Larabar.
And for dinner, Barrett treated me to Garcias!
Shrimp, rice, salsa, and guac. <3
I know rice isn’t “Paleo” but like I said, I am just experimenting with certain foods to see what works and what doesn’t.
I hope this inspired you to eat something healthy.
Have a great week!!!
P.S. this guy had an interview this morning and I can’t even handle how handsome he is…!!!!
