The last few days I have been very busy and have not been able to post anything. I also deviated from the challenge, however I am back and I will not start over on day one but just continue a few more days instead 🙂
Last week was a challenge, I started a new job two weeks ago and there is so much to learn, and my head have been on overload hahaha. I also worked really late, and that I’m not used to. So I was kind of exhausted in my brain this weekend. On saturday I ended up eating at TGI Fridays had a burger with gluten free bun and a few fries, I also had 2 mojitos. And on yesterday on sunday I had nachos at my sisters house. My stomach ended up in so much pain after dinner yesterday it was still hurting this morning. I’m not going to punish myself for failing this weekend.. it is just getting back on the wagon again. Now 24 hours later my stomach is still hurting a little bit.
Today I had nut porridge topped with berries for breakfast and a purple green juice. For lunch and dinner I had taco pie i made last week 🙂
The nut porridge is delicious and simple to make, I found this recipe online it is in swedish. I just used less to have a smaller portion.
1 dl (0.4 cups) nuts ( i used almonds and cashews)
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 dl (0.4 cups) coconut milk
1 msk water
Put the nuts in a blender and mix the nuts until they are very small pieces.
Put the eggs, banana coconut milk and water in a mixer and bled.
Pour in the nuts and stir.
Boil in a pot while you stir, until you’ve got the right consistency.
Hi so today I’m embarking on day 3. But since I work from 5pm – 12am this week I post yesterdays foods that I ate 🙂 Yesterday ended up being a vegeterian day which was fantastic. I love to switch it up. I also believe that as mainly a paleo eater you are some days supposed to be all vegeterain. I beleive that back in the paleolithic times they ate meat when they had been out hunting and the days they didn’t have meet they ate vegeterian. This is just my own thughts about this. Can’t know for sure 😉
For breakfast I had millet flakes meal topped with berries, that recipe will be up tomorrow. For lunch and dinner I had chickpea and carrot patties, recipe below. Snack I had apple and banana and a raw food bar.
Chickpeas carrot patties
1 tetra box or can of chickpeas
1 medium carrot
1 small onion
1-2 cloves garlic
1-2 tsp arrowroot flour (tapioca or coconut works too
1 tsp cummin powder
1 tsp tumeric powder
Dash of chill powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Coconut oil, ghee for frying
Rinse the chickpeas, chop the onion and garlic
Put in a food blender and blend till a grainy consistency not smooth. Put in a bowl.
Shred the carrot and add to the mixture with the egg and seasonings.
Mix well and create balls and flatten them out to patties on a cutting board.
Fry the patties on low to medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Til they get a little color.
Serve with sides of your choice. I used ovenbaked sweet potato, guacamole and salad.
Hi i have been slipping for some time now. I have been eating to much of foods my body does not agree with. Like dairy (mainly cheese), sugar (in sweets, coffiee drinks, icecream etc.), processed food (chips, fries, etc.), even some gluten though extremely small amounts. And my body have been telling me to stop but i have ignored it. Now it is time to stop and get back on track eating in a way my body deserve. And for me to do that i need to challenge myself, i stay on track when i do. It is also a great way to kick start change and creating good habits.
My 30 day challenge will consist of paleo food, vegetarian food and raw food. That’s why i called it a paleoish clean eating challenge. And as always preparing and planning is the key to stay on track. Yesterday on day 1 i ate a delicious smoothie with eggs for breakfast, recipe below. For lunch i met up with a friend and had a salad topped with shrimp, snack was the same as my morning smoothie. For dinner i had salmon with oven baked sweetpotato.
Yummylisious smoothie recipe:
hand full spinach
1 cup blackberry, raspberry, blueberry (i used frozen)
1/2 cup strawberry (used fresh)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 small knob ginger
1 tsp green superfood mix (chlorella, wheatgrass, ginger)
3/4 cup water
Blend and enjoy!!!!! For the part i saved for my afternoon snack i added 1 tbsp chiaseeds so it would be more creamy.
