Welcome to Wednesday, y’all! We are almost halfway through the work week, which makes me more and more excited for the upcoming weekend. I have a chiropractor appointment, full day of work, a walk, and blog work on my agenda for the day. It’s probably safe to say that my day will likely fly by and Thursday will be here before I know it. No complaints here!
Is anyone else shocked that Christmas is literally only like two weeks away? Luckily, I have most of my Christmas shopping done, but I still have a few small things left to pick up. Oh, and the wrapping? Yeah, I haven’t even started that part. Hopefully I get some wrapping motivation here soon.
Today isn’t just Wednesday or almost Christmas time, it also officially marks four months until my wedding. Holy crap! I feel like we have so much done, and yet have so many “little things” left to pull everything together. I should probably get to working on that over the holiday break.
But until then… let’s take a look at a full day of my Paleo eats!
What I Ate Wednesday: December 9, 2015
My Saturday morning started out just how I like ’em: warm, cozy, and lazy. I enjoyed a slow hour of blog reading and TV watching while drinking a mug of warm water with collagen peptides, L-glutamine powder, and a few squeezes of lemon. Warm water tastes so much better than cold when it is chilly outside.
About 30 minutes after my mug of water, I took a couple of GI-ENCAP capsules (and a few more throughout the day) with a full glass of water. I have been using this supplement to try to help combat my acid reflux and help heal my gut.
Around an hour later, I ate the most delicious stuffed baked sweet potato. I topped it off with grassfed ground beef and leek greens sautéed in coconut oil + spices, avocado, and fresh cilantro. I also took a cod liver oil capsule and a digestive enzyme.
My lunch was eaten on the go: my favorite bacon and pork EPIC bar, organic baby carrots, a granny smith apple, and another digestive enzyme.
And because my lunch was not nearly filling enough, I snacked on a whole lot of these plantain chips later in the afternoon. Seriously, once you start you cannot stop.
Dinner was a modified version of Kristin’s Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup + a second cod liver oil capsule. I doubled the recipe, replaced the EVOO with avocado oil, and used parsnips instead of potatoes since I am avoiding nightshades. It was so delicious! I highly recommend whipping up a big batch of this soup. I’ve been eating the leftovers for breakfast this week. Yes, soup is totally a breakfast food!
I ended my evening with a new-to-me probiotic and frozen berries with homemade coconut whip (no picture because I was too excited and forgot!). It was the perfect ending to a relaxing weekend night.A whole foodie day of #Paleo eats! #WIAW Click To Tweet
