Sunday cookfest

I used to spend my Sundays in the kitchen baking and cooking for the week ahead. Then life changed and for some reason I stopped doing that. Not long after I noticed that all the weight I had lost eating healthy planned and prepared meals was coming back and it was bringing friends.

Time to get back to routine and get myself back on the right track. Packed lunches instead of last minute whatever grabbed in the 10 minutes between meetings. Good balanced paleo suppers and high energy protein packed breakfasts.

Today I return to Sunday in the kitchen. Lots of tasty paleo dishes to prep and a 30 day meal plan to keep me focused from “the 30 day guide to paleo cooking” from the folks at www.primalplate.com.

Grass fed meats are thawing. Organic veg is waiting….. No more excuses. Time to cook!

Going Primal

A month ago I was challenged to adopt a protein and produce eating plan for 28 days.  Participants were required to post photos and descriptions of their meals online so we were more accountable and could get ideas from what others were eating.  

The challenge is over, and I have to admit, I like the paleo/primal diet.  I don’t miss bread, buns, pizza dough or cookies (ok, maybe cookies a little), and getting the majority of refined sugars out of my diet has to be good for me.  I’ve decided to try another 30 days and really get serious about it, except for the 1 night a week I will continue to enjoy a glass (or several) of red wine.

So - I started this blog.  I needed somewhere to post my meal pictures and share my experiences even if no one is reading it.  Welcome to my adventures in primal eating, and my first attempt at internet blogging.  Hopefully both prove successful and enduring.
