What I Ate This Week

What's-In-Your-Cart-Nov-04-12

Do you ever peek into other people’s shopping carts, or gawk at their purchases at the check-out? Do you then try to figure out what kind of diet, if any, they’re on? Followed perhaps by a quick glance at the shopper to evaluate the success of that diet?

Somehow I doubt I’m the only one… In which case, you might find my weekly shopping loot interesting.

Even more nosy? ;) Here are the details:

“But if you don’t eat bread, what the heck do you eat??”

This should answer that question and then some. Check out the images below of everything that I ate this past week to see the extent of my suffering on this paleo/primal “diet”.

I’m back to eating dairy. Sort of. Much less and focusing on quality. The only dairy I’ve had this week is some pastured butter. Also, back to having dark chocolate as a treat. But I don’t feel drawn to it like I used to, which is good. Focusing on nourishing snacks like egg drop soup. I’m experimenting with 2 ingredient banana pancakes, and hope to post the recipe soon. And I just discovered coconut chips – wow, so good! Lotsa great paleo food :)

So I’m now off the elimination diet, and trying not too get too derailed too quickly. You’ll notice I’ve separated snacks from desserts/treats below. That’s as a result of the elimination diet. Previously, desserts/treats were too often simply snacks. I hope to keep those separate. Also, still not eating dairy – not sure for how long, just experimenting without it for a bit. For the time being, I’m using homemade ghee instead of butter.

It feels nice to be able to eat whatever I want. But the safety net of the elimination diet is gone, meaning a bunch of stuff could creep back into my diet – mostly referring to sugar. I’d like to eat a little more cleanly for the next while, so we’ll see if I can keep that up without becoming too restrictive.
