Linking up with Peas and Crayons today because it’s What I Ate Wednesday, a day to share the meals I’ve prepared for myself and eaten, and an opportunity for you to see the day to day meals of a primal eater.

This is a WIAW post I had prepared for last Wednesday. Unfortunately, I didn’t eat these things today as I’ve got a very dodgy stomach….
This week’s Whenever Quiche is made with sautéed kale, red pepper, garlic and bacon. I also added feta and chives to it. I’m quite fond of kale lately, but find it still quite tough to chew despite many attempts to fry it at low heat. A solution to this was to add about 2 tablespoons of my very first batch of homemade bone broth to the frying pan of kale and peppers, adding more umami flavour (the broth was also made with fish sauce and porcini mushrooms), but also braising the kale to soften it up. Quite a success really, and something I’m going to continue to do with kale dishes.
My breakfast dessert was coconut cream, apricot, frozen local blueberries and the best topping ever: a crumbled Nutter Bomb. Love, love, love!!!!!
No breakfast, weekday or weekend, is complete without a bulletproof espresso: two shots of Lavazza espresso, 1 tablespoon of Kerrygold butter from grass-fed cows, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and a heaped teaspoon of xylitol to sweeten.
Lunch today was another favourite: smoked mackerel! If you’ll remember from this week’s Primal Lessons post on the Philosophies behind primal eating, mackerel is an incredible source of omega-3 fats, but also a good coldwater fish to eat if you have difficulty buying wild fish, like Salmon. It’s packed full of taste, and also really budget-friendly. My pack of two smoked mackerel cost £1.72 ($2.82 USD)!
I enjoyed my smoked mackerel with a spinach, tomato and avocado salad, tossed in Balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
And as usual, a Caveman Keto Fat Bomb for dessert. One of the best parts about being primal is that I get to enjoy one of these every single day.
Dinner was burgers! We made Nom Nom Paleo Big-O Bacon burgers, which is grass-fed beef, minced bacon and fried mushrooms made into burger patties. So full of flavour! I had to break up the burger on our grill because despite cooking it for twenty minutes, it was raw inside. I topped the burger with fried onions, and had a Greek-style spinach salad on the side, complete with feta cheese.
Dessert was a peeled kiwi, not pictured.
