What I Ate This Week (Nov. 4/12)

“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 :)

Every time you do these posts I love it. I love the way it’s set up. I know I said that last time. Do you use maple syrup on your pancakes?

Thanks :) It helps me keep track of it all in my mind too when I break it up like this. Of course it also helps that I batch cook so a lot of my meals are the same.

And yes, I do use maple syrup. Although honestly, I’ve been using it mostly because a) to make the picture look prettier and b) because “that’s what you put on pancakes”. But the banana is so sweet already, I’m going to tone it down with the maple syrup in the future. We shall see.
