The Hardest Days Mean the Most

Yesterday was day 2 of this round (smh).  It wasn’t as bad as I thought, but it wasn’t easy.  I had my breakfast/lunch prepped – so that definitely made it easier.  I’m feeling less foggy, so I am trying to use that as motivation.  I keep thinking about how paleo fixed a lot of physical and mental things I had going on the first time I did it, and I just need to get back to that place.

So for dinner – beef and bok choy stir fry.  You need flank steak, bok choy, mushrooms, coconut oil, and garlic.  You have to marinate the flank steak.  Mix coconut aminos, tapioca flour, and black pepper.  Then you make a sauce with more coconut aminos, honey, ground ginger, and more tapioca flour.  Cook the steak in the oil, take it out.  Then put the bok choy, mushrooms, and garlic.  Add the steak and sauce – mix it up until it thickens.  You can serve it over cauliflower rice.  Pretty good, if you ask me.

Then for today’s breakfast, Cinnamon Vanilla muffins.  Just used coconut flour, baking soda, vanilla extract, honey, coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and cloves.  SO FREAKIN’ GOOD!  And they were pretty filling.

Why not try again?

Hello again! I wish I could just stick with this like old times! My many apologies.

I went food shopping – paleo style – last night. I admit the stresses of life have gotten the best of me. I have been making such terrible food choices and I have neglected the gym. My body hates me for it, and I was certainly paying for it. But I may have had a mental breakthrough…so hopefully it sticks this time around.

I know many people are doing the keto lifestyle, but I’m not really into it. I have done a lot of research and they say although you may be eating keto, you’re body may never actually go into ketosis.

So last night for dinner I made Chicken with a creamy sun-dried tomato and basil sauce.
I heated up some olive oil and added garlic. I put salt and pepper on some chicken breast and cooked that up. When you get both sides a little browned, add some chicken broth and sun-dried tomatoes chopped up. Cover it and let it cook. When the chicken is done, take it out. Add some coconut milk (I used canned), and stir it up. Pour it on top of the chicken and add fresh basil. IT WAS SO GOOD!

Then for breakfast meal prep I made a blueberry omelet. Now here me out – it sounds weird – and I haven’t tried it yet – BUT it smelled delicious! Heat up some coconut oil. Crack your eggs in a bowl and add coconut aminos, cinnamon, and black pepper. Scramble them up. Add them to the pan, then add blueberries, then turn it into and omelet! Boom!

I’m sorry I don’t have measurements…I just go with what feels right. You can make extra of the dinner and use it for lunch the next day.

I really, really want to stick with this.
