Have to share 2 beautiful pictures of them. You guys are an inspiration.
Today me and one of my friend went on a long walk with some hills and pushing a stroller about 7 km (4.4 miles), I was completely beat. But I had no time to take a nap before work. Just enough time to eat some lunch and prep my dinner. So I can’t wait for this workday to be over and go home and sleep.
Yesterday and today went by smoothly still have no sugar cravings, which is fantastic cause they suck hahaha. I decided to not have any cacao in anything I make just to make sure I don’t trigger any cravings. I live having cacao in my smoothies or bullet proof coffee. Yesterday I had a super yummy creamy smoothie for breakfast. I think I will make it tomorrow too.

Hey all 🙂 I’m doing another Whole30 and I need it. Been eating really crappy this past 6 month, I’ve gained some weight too and it is time to make a change. So I am kicking it off with a bang! Last time I ended up being sick and stopped it. This time I am going to go through with it and I hope i won’t get sick again since I was just sick for a few days.
I am really excited because my co-worker and her husband is doing it with me. Well she already started last monday. She was too excited and couldn’t wait. So we will keep eachother on track 🙂
I forgot to weigh myself this morning so I will do so tomorrow. I also need to measure myself and take pictures to be able to see the change better 🙂
Day 1: I had not bought any groceries before I started this morning so I didn’t have too much to use for breakfast and lunch. I did go shopping after so now I have some good stuff to cook with 🙂
Breakfast: Berry spinach smoothie with 2 eggs
Lunch: Zucchini soup with shredded chicken
Snack: 1 egg and a banana
Dinner: Jamaican run down ( fish stew) with cooked green plantain and kale
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.
