Each Day, Better Than the Last

Today (yesterday) was a good day.  One, it was Friday (it’s Saturday now) and two, all the food I ate was AWESOME.  Plus, I weighed myself at the end of the night, after eating dinner, and my weight was at my 23.5 lb. loss…which means…I’m probably a pound or at least a half pound lighter than that!

For breakfast, I ate the pumpkin pancakes with an egg and a strip of bacon.  Then for lunch, I ate my hamburger with almond butter/bacon mashup on top.  Both of those meals were prepared last night!  Then for dinner I made sausage, peppers, and onions with a radish salad as a side.  I’ve never really ate radishes before, but when I saw them in the supermarket, I was compelled to buy them.  I knew I’d figure out what to do with them later.  I looked up some things online about radishes and found out that horseradish is actually made from chopped up radishes.  I don’t know why I never put that together.  Then I wanted to know why it was called horseradish; this site says:

In German, it’s called “meerrettich” (sea radish) because it grows by the sea. Many believe the English mispronounced the German word “meer” and began calling it“mareradish.” Eventually it became known as horseradish. The word “horse” (as applied in “horseradish”) is believed to denote large size and coarseness. “Radish” comes from the Latin radix meaning root.

I thought that was pretty interesting.  Tomorrow I think I’m going to attempt my own Paleo horseradish!  Anyway, back to my radish salad…I found a recipe for a simple radish salad.  I plan on doing more things with radishes.  I’m so excited, and I don’t know why.  Oh, maybe it’s because it’s almost 3am!

So I leave you with this question, what was your “a-ha!” moment that made you decide it was time to change your lifestyle and live Paleo?

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.

    • Schooling me again, Dr. Noah?! haha I don’t mind. 🙂
      I think I actually looked up a Paleo horseradish recipe, and it said to grate the red radishes…so that’s why I thought it was made from radishes. Perhaps I should check all my sources first. 🙂 Thanks for the correction.
