Do you have the time…..

Do you have the time…..

to listen to me whine…. (yes, thanks Green Day.) I was inspired by this post from Balanced Bites. I was also inspired by a conversation I had with a friend the other day with regards to having time to cook, preparing meals, and ‘gluten free’ options. I can get a meal on the table in 15 minutes and I don’t own a microwave. Yes, a lot of that is due to the fact that my cupboard is well stocked with essentials. I...

Getting started with your health?

There are bucketloads of Paleo/Primal books and e-books and systems and all sorts of resources on the Internet. It would take months or years to work thru what are the best ones to check out, especially if you are just getting started on this. Or you’re just curious about what this way of eating/living is like, like some of my friends should be! It would be fantastic is someone would put together a ‘best of’ so to...

Whole 30 – October 2012 Week Four

The last week of my ‘Whole 30‘ collapsed a little. Our friends went home on Tuesday and then we flew to the UK for a wedding two days later and spent about 4 days travelling and visiting friends and family. I was without internet for a few days (I know, shock horror!) and didn’t manage to post my meals. I’d say the only day I REALLY went off-piste would be on Monday night when I ate a homemade steak,...

Whole 30 – October 2012 Week Three

Still going on my ‘Whole 30‘! 3 weeks and one more to go. I’m not actually counting though – it’s very easy.. in general. Not much different from how I normally eat. It was more challenging this week – not because it’s 3 weeks in, but rather, we’ve had friends visiting! Week Three – October 15 – 21 Day 15 Food: Break Fast: BBQ leftover scrambled eggs (had a bbq on Sunday!)....

Weeknight Paleo Book Review and Giveaway!

  First off, I’m a cookbook addict. There. I said it. I absolutely, positively adore cookbooks. I have an entire bookcase (not shelf) in the house dedicated to cookbooks – and I’ve actually given away a bunch to friends! And speaking of giveaways – Amber has given me TWO e-books to giveaway! Be sure to get to the bottom of this post for details on how to enter. But also, in direct contradiction to that, I...

Whole 30 – October 2012 Week Two

Still going on my ‘Whole 30‘! I can’t exactly say if it’s easier or harder at the moment, but one thing I’ve noticed, which may or may not be relevant to the Whole 30, is that if I -don’t- go to the gym or cycle in the morning, I tend to want to eat more. What? Yea, I don’t understand that either…. Week Two – October 8 – 14 Day 8 Food: Break Fast: shredded sweet potato (also...

Whole 30 – October 2012 Week One

Taking everything back to basics, I embarked on a ‘Whole 30‘ this month. I’ve been posting my daily food intake on Instagram, but decided to go into a li’l more detail on the blog here…. See those new pictures over there in the sidebar? That’s the li’l instagram photos! (It’s my way of making myself accountable for what I’m eating – I’m even photographing any snacks!)...

Caveman on tour….

Sometimes, travelling can pose an ‘issue’ for me. I tend to eat as and when, as opposed to proper meals. But when I’m in the UK, it’s difficult. I mean, sure, I can pop into Marks and Spencer and pick up a… oh wait. Most salads they (or Boots, or Greggs or whatever) offer include rice, pasta, potatoes, cous cous, etc…! I’ve found simple salads at the bigger stores, but when I’m ‘on...

A note on fitness

A little bit about my fitness… I have spent the last year building up my fitness. Ever since getting my Garmin Forerunner (which is definitely the best fitness/motivational tool I have ever bought in my life – and I’ve bought a lot!), I have racked up miles of cycling and even jogging. I completed the Barcelona SuperSprint Triathlon last October (and wasn’t last!). I even did a 5k run on New Year’s Eve...
