A brief, but droolworthy, look at What I Ate, for this Wednesday.
While I’m very good with mixing it up for lunches and dinner, I’m SUCH a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast. I eat this combination of eggs with veg, fruit + Nutter Bomb + coconut cream day in, and day out because I love it so much.
My eggs with veg combination of late is a fritata made with 10 eggs and three vegetables, sliced into 8. It isn’t my favourite part of this meal, but I know it will do me good and keep my full.
My fruit bowl consisted of nectarine, strawberries and kiwi, which is covered by the cream.
And no breakfast (day?) is complete without the best part about being primal: bulletproof coffee. Or espresso if you’re me. Lots of espresso with a tablespoon of butter, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and xylitol to sweeten make getting up for work in the morning worth it.
I love mise-en-place type of photos, which is why I photographed my packed lunch like this:
This lunch consisted of leftover Nom Nom Paleo Kahlua Pig (one of the only ways I enjoy pork), with a chopped salad, (there is sweet potato in their too). Once at work, I added the avocado to the salad, as well as the contents of that jar: chimichurri sauce, my current favourite. I then put the lid back on, and shake it all about.
The pork was from a weekend slow cooked batch. Who doesn’t like shredded meat???!!?
My dessert was a dairy-free fat bomb made by Pat, and a large mug of matcha green tea.
To continue the chimichurri obsession, I put it on my chicken wings:
I baked the wings in ghee with a bit of salt and pepper on top, for 35 minutes altogether, at 200’C. Then I tossed them in the sauce.
This was served with baked sweet potato and more chopped salad. I like chopped salad.
The sweet potato that day, and previous day, did me well: I ran some pretty impressive paces at my running club as a result of the added glycogen, getting into just sub-7 minute miles for some speed work. I’m pretty happy with that!
Not pictured was the big mug of peppermint tea, and medjool date with almond butter that I enjoyed for my evening dessert.
