Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

A day in the life...

I am happy to say that I am now on holiday for some much needed rest!

This means I'll be able to post up some more awesome primal recipes for the world to see.

Also for the month of August I'm tightening up on my nutrition and trying to eat more clean.

The main goal for the month isn't to cut sugar and treats out completely, as this is not realistic, but to drop a few things like chocolate that were becoming daily snacks!

So I thought I would post up here what I have eaten in the last 24 hours.

Here is yesterday's breakfast:


This took no time at all to prepare. It's simply a sirloin steak with fried onion and broccoli and a fried egg. Also a dollop of Dijon mustard to go with the steak.

Lunch:


This was leftovers from dinner the night before. It's Jambalaya. The recipe for this I've posted before.

I find that the meal people will falter on the most when they are trying to eat clean is lunch. If you walk out that door in the morning and you haven't already got anything in your hot little hand to eat for lunch then you will be more likely to put something in your face that you probably shouldn't.

So leftovers is the perfect lunch meal. Just put it in a lunchbox and you're done.

Dinner:




This was the best Chili I have ever made. Ever. Full stop.

It looks a bit sloppy here but I tell ya it was outstanding. I'll post the recipe for this tomorrow.

So on this day I ate 3 meals and that was that. No snacks. And to be honest I didn't feel like any.

I find that I eat snacks or treats near the end of the day not because I am hungry but because I just want to put the sugary goodness in my face.

So since I'm being a little stricter over August I'm holding out to temptation to eat something sweet after dinner and after a few minutes the urge passes and that's that!

Today's breakfast:


I was in a bit of a rush, (meaning I didn't want to wait for anything to be cooked), and put together this for breakfast.

A couple of hard boiled eggs that were already boiled, some rare roast beef, tomato, cucumber, feta and some avocado.

T'was all delish.
