Hello food gawkers, and welcome to What I Ate Wednesday, the weekly potluck blog party where bloggers from all over snap photos of their food to show the world what they eat. This is also a way for you readers to see what I eat in a day, and get some new recipe ideas.
Thanks to Arman for hosting this week!
Same old, same old… but not. I still stuck to my usual egg + vegetables, but this week, I decided my vegetables would take the form of cauliflower rice with Asian flavours.
This is basically a paleo fried cauliflower rice, with added vegetables and scrambled egg, all tossed in a nutty Satay sauce. I was sick of the Italian-inspired stewed veg, and wanted something different. This was so good and hit the spot. When life stops being so hectic, I will post this recipe.
I also had my two Old Faithfuls: a bowl of 3 fruits and coconut cream, topped with a Nutter Bomb
. I know, I post this every
WIAW, but I never get tired of it!
My other Old Faithful? You guessed it: bulletproof espresso, made with 2 shots espresso, 2 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp butter and xylitol for sweetness.
Spring is kinda here in Scotland, because spring = cold temperatures, blowing wind and rain, right? 😉
As a result of not so cold temperatures, I’ve started eating salads almost daily again. Today’s salad consisted of spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, spring onions (green onions), and avocado, topped with Nom Nom Paleo’s Mint Chimichurri sauce (recipe only in the cookbook!), a new recipe I made this past weekend. WOW is all I can say! That stuff takes delicious to another level. My salad was topped with leftover roasted chicken breast.
For (my daily) dessert, I had a fat bomb made by Pat the husband, and a very large cup of Match Green Tea.
Lately, after school, I’ve been having a cheeky snack of one or two Medjool dates dipped in either almond butter, or my new treat find: Whole Earth peanut butter with sunflower, pumpkin and flax seeds. What a great discovery at Tesco! The ingredients are literally peanuts, the mentioned seeds, palm oil and sea salt. ALL primal ingredients. The combination of date + nutter butter is like a chocolate bar minus the sickly chocolate. Honestly, it’s amazing.
Not pictured was a small bowl of homemade vegetable soup, which was eaten before heading out to running club at 7pm because I was hungry. If I wasn’t running, I wouldn’t have eaten that snack.
Every week, as part of our meal prep, Pat makes us a homemade curry. He loves the stuff as a result of backpacking in India in his early adult years; I love that all the ingredients to the pastes and curries themselves are all primal. And that Pat makes it.
This week’s curry was Lamb Rogan Josh with cauliflower and added wilted spinach, served with a heaping spoonful of tumeric rice because we’re #teamwhiterice.
This was eaten after 9pm, when I got home from running. A great meal to restock glycogen stores after 6 miles of long, hilly intervals…
My night cap was a large cup of Three Mint tea.
