Someone questioned my Paleoness today and sent me into a bit of panic.  But I reread select areas of It Starts With Food to reassure myself.  Although there is a plethora of Carbohydrates that can be found in fruit and vegetable, Paleo is viewed as a no/low carb ‘diet’.  It’s true that it scared me when I read post-Workout meals and saw sandwiches, wraps, granola, and quinoa!  “I can’t have ANY of those!” I panicked, but according to ISWF “Restoring [my] health is more important than fueling [my] athletic performance” at this time.  Meaning it’s more important for me to have protein after a workout than carbohydrates.  I do however bring my salmon cakes to the gym with me and eat them post workout.  Along the way I also found this great PDF Guide to dense Carbohydrate sources courtesy of Practical Paleo (which I now own and need to finish reading).

Overall better day already!  Looking forward to hitting the gym soon though!

 

I unfortunately couldn’t get the day off to go roadtrippin’ but fear not, the mushroom chips did not go to waste, I ate them all! I could hardly contain myself!  I feel I’ll need to buy multiple packages of King Oyster Mushroom to fuel this addiction!  Maybe its best to stay away for a while!

Crispy Mushroom Chips and Porkitos

I walked into the staff room today and mindlessly grabbed the Chips Ahoy! package sitting on the table.  It wasn’t until I had struggled with getting the tray out of the bag and almost touch the cookie that I snapped out of my mindless eating and scolded myself.  But really what the devil? It was like 9 in the morning!  I felt a lot of hunger today, but I think a lot of it had to do with boredom, it wasn’t a particularly busy day!

My coworker has been talking about prosciutto for the last 2 weeks and I kept telling her to try Porkitos.  I started craving it so in anticipation of tomorrow’s potential road trip I made some Porkitos and Crispy Mushroom chips from Nom Nom Paleo you can find the recipe here!  Unfortunately I burnt the last batch of Porkitos and over salted the Mushroom chips, but I’ll eat it anyways!  I walked into the living room eating a Mushroom chip and gave it to my husband (who dislikes Mushrooms with a passion) he ate it unquestioningly and enjoyed it until I told him it was mushroom.  Little by little I may be convincing him to try a Whole30!

A few weeks ago I ruined half a dozen batches of Mayo in three consecutive days as hard as I tried to fix them, nothing helped so I decided I would NEVER make it again, my hubby said he was not sad to see the homemade mayo go as it caused me so much grief.  Mayo is so fickle!  I missed my morning Mayo and Scotch Egg so I caved and bought a jar of Hellman’s.  Bleurk!  It was really awful!  I tried a different recipe and instead of using the blender, I used my Kitchen Aid mixer.  Eureka!!! That seemed to help and took a lot less time than usual!  I was thrilled!  Now that potatoes are ‘legal’ on the Whole30, I’ll be having some potato salad to commemorate the summer!
