Sunny Side Up!
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!
Breakfast: 2 Fried Eggs and 2 slices bacon
Snack: Cherries + Coconut Cream Larabar
Lunch: Roast Beef and french style green beans
Supper: Fiesta Pork Chops (Well Fed 2) and sweet potato coins

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!
