How exciting.. A new week!
Unfortunately for me, I woke up this morning feeling pretty blah. I went to bed at 10 ish last night because I was so tired and then got up at 10 this morning. I never sleep for 12 hours so that was different. I don’t really know how to describe it but I was just in a bad mood this morning. My stomach also is still bothering me which is less than ideal. But I made myself 2 scrambled eggs for breakfast and some coffee (but this time without almond milk creamer because Paleo diet is supposed to have really limited sugar – so I used unsweetened almond milk). I didn’t take a picture of it because it didn’t look too cute. If you really wanna know what it looked like, it looked like a cooked, deformed yellow blob on a white plate. However, it tasted really good (because I do really like eggs). I’m blaming that blah mood on the weather.
I feel like this week is going to have a lot less pictures than last week because my food is going to be a lot less pretty. Personally, I think that a lot of people find the vegan diet interesting because it looks so damn pretty on Instagram! (which it is). I’m excited for a change of food though because I feel like sometimes the vegan diet can be an excess amount of carbs and too little protein, which I think makes me feel kinda gross.
Today is weird. I’m not even hungry for lunch and it’s almost 1:00pm (I’m updating this blog entry as the day goes on, not all at once fyi). I’m still not totally sure what I can/can’t eat on Paleo, so don’t hate me if I mess up a few times! But I’m pretty sure that you can eat kale and nuts, so lucky me I get to eat my fave thai peanut salad for lunch! (that’s a win)
After lunch, I went to Wegman’s with my mom. Wegman’s is the best because they have a huge selection of everything and a lot of it’s organic.
(I thought this board at Wegman’s was nice – one of the reasons why I love Wegman’s)
They had bulk cherry tomatoes! how cool is that! Also, I lied in one of my previous posts. I think Wegman’s has the best bulk section ever, not Whole Foods. (can you tell I love bulk stuff?)
I’m kind of conflicted right now because I really liked everything that the vegan diet did for the environment and for animals (because i really do hate what the meat industry does to them), but I do like eating chicken and fish because of the good protein and I think it tastes good. So, to sort of compromise, I made sure that all the meat that I bought was organic, grass-fed, and free range. It definitely is more expensive, but I think it’s important.
Here’s what I bought:
.. basically a whole bunch of produce and some meat. There is nothing processed and it’s über healthy (love the word über haha).
AND I didn’t forget any bags at the store this time! (unlike last week!)
I was hungry by the time I got home so I made myself a berry smoothie:
and I also had a green apple with Justin’s maple almond butter. The almond butter was so good I ended up eating some of it with a spoon lol
I’m about to head out to a lacrosse game, but for dinner I think my whole family is going to have roasted butternut squash and grilled chicken with a tomato salsa. (getting the fam to hop on the organic healthy train! hahah)
