What I Ate This Week (Oct. 28/12)

October 28, 2012


“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”.

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.

I always wonder how to do a week of eats in one post without too many pictures. This is a great post! I might steal that idea from you ;) I really don’t miss bread but I definitely miss cheese. I don’t think I’ll ever add bread or pasta back into my diet. Possibly a sprinkle of cheese here and there.

Thanks :) And I’m with you on the cheese. It’s one of my fave foods. I’ll probably go back to my primal cheese-eating ways. This break is a bit of self-experimentation. I’ve already scaled back on the dairy quite a bit since staring paleo/primal, and will probably scale back further in the long run, but realistically I don’t see myself completely eliminating it forever.
