{WIAW} A Primal Travel Day

Greetings from Berlin! Today’s What I Ate Wednesday post is coming to you from Germany’s capital city, and my favourite city in the world. I’m here to celebrate my Coconut Friend Alicia‘s hen do, or bachelorette party, this weekend. Below is a photo diary of the food I ate today: at home, en route and in Berlin.

Every WIAW post is also a way for me, someone that follows a Primal lifestyle, to showcase what the diet looks like in every day life.

Thanks to Jen for hosting 🙂


Same old, same old, but, as someone commented last week, “If I ate that for breakfast, I would eat it everyday too.” There you have it. Today’s vegetables + egg consisted of Asian Cauliflower Rice with scrambled egg. Basically, fried ‘rice.’

I know the photo looks familiar, but I did actually have this for breakfast! I just couldn’t find the photo on my phone :/

My fruit bowl consisted of mango, kiwi, blueberries and strawberries, with coconut cream and crumbled nutter bomb on top. I thought I’d give you a deconstructed view of this instead, so you can see something new.

And, as always, my raison d’être: bulletproof espresso. How can you resist 2 shots of espresso + 2 tbsp coconut oil + 1 tbsp Kerrygold butter + 1 heaped tsp of xylitol????? If you’ve never had this primal beverage, and are wrinkling your nose at the thought of it, all I can say is “Don’t knock it til you try it!” Then, you too will fall head over heels in love. With the espresso that is.

En route to Berlin! Today’s travel day consisted of 2 flights: Aberdeen to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Berlin. In the past, for long haul flights back to Canada, I’ve always done some food prep and taken plenty of food to last the 14 hour travel day. Today was different though, because it was only a 5 hour travel day, and I wanted to have some airport food instead. You see, I’m quite familiar with certain sections of Amsterdam Schiphol, and I know they have a rotisserie food vendor, and I love rotisserie chicken. I bought myself (some very expensive) rotisserie cornish hen (I think), that came with potato gratin. I ate this with a salad I had packed, made of spinach, cucucmber, orange pepper, avocado and seed mix, tossed in olive oil, balsamic vinegar and s & p. This was enjoyed with sparkling water.

I didn’t eat all those potatoes!


In Berlin! Alicia is also primal, which makes things so much easier, and allows us to talk primal and share food ideas and recipes. She made us dinner of leftover pork tenderloin, seasoned with dried basil, pesto, s & p, served with roasted peppers and the most amazing coconut roasted cauliflower.

Dessert was a delicious fat bomb, made by Alicia’s fiancé André. I enjoyed this with a cup of my Matcha Green Tea. Sorry, I didn’t get a photo of the actual fat bomb, so here’s a ‘stock’ photo instead 😉


Tomorrow, I’ve got a day of sight-seeing and writing ahead of me. I also have quite some fun to look forward to: dinner tomorrow night at Markthalle Neun for Street Food Thursday, hot tub movie-viewing Friday, the bachelorette festivities Saturday, and then Sunday, the flea market at Mauerpark, and dinner Sunday at Sauvage Paleothek, the small paleo restaurant in Berlin. And I will no doubt write about it next week 🙂

What did you eat today?

What’s your favourite city in the world?

  1. I love your deconstructed view of your normal breakfast! Yet another week of looking at your first meal and I’m realizing I need to make your coffee. I don’t have espresso, so I might try with just a regular strong coffee without the added sweetener. That cornish hen looks like it was at least worth the expense! It looks pretty delicious to me.
    I’ve never been to Berlin (of Germany for that matter), but I’ve always wanted to visit! I’m looking forward to hearing how your trip goes!! Yay for primal friends 🙂

    • Bulletproof coffee is actually made with filtered coffee instead, I just use espresso just cause. And, I add the sweetner because I like sweet coffee.

      Honestly, Germany is such a great country to visit. I was never interested in going before I moved to Scotland, and only initially went 5 years ago because my sister-in-law lived here. Now, it’s my favourite EU country!

    • You should totally go! Germany is a fantastic country to visit! I admit, before I went for the first time, I had no interest in seeing it at all. We went to visit family there, and I fell in love with the country. Then, I went to Berlin, and fell in love with that city!
