Paleo diet Day 19 - ate sausage & resisted temptaton

Sunday, December 02, 2012

This was a good day from the Paleo perspective. Because it was Saturday we had more time for a real breakfast, and I had time to cook a real dinner. The results:

Breakfast: bacon and a large portion of green beans, cooked in bacon fat. Tea, coffee with coconut milk. Banana with almond butter as "dessert."

Afternoon snack: Herbal tea, banana, almond butter, dates

Supper: I had a craving for a nice "German" meal so I cooked two types of sausage (bratwurst and mettwurst) freshly made at our local co-op. Initital searing with coconut oil, then steamed slowly with GF beer. For veggies cooked up our own red cabbage with apple cider vinegar, oregano, and sea salt. I felt satisfied and a bit smug about how well it turned out, even pleased my teen daughter. emoticon

Resisted temptation: we went into town and spent an hour + celebrating a colleague's birthday at a brewpub/restaurant. Probably eating beforehand helped a lot, but my wife and I got out of there having only had water with lemon. Resisted the beer, the appetizers, and the birthday cake. Wasn't too much of a problem, maybe I'm getting used to this...?

The reward for virtue came when we returned home and my daughter had made a homemade Nanaimo bar with pecans, coconut flakes, coconut yoghurt, arrowroot, stevia, and xylitol. She wasn't so impressed with her own handiwork, but I was. Yum. emoticon
