A Paleolithic Diet – Day 9

Today was kind’ve a ho-hum day. I woke up and started a wee bit of laundry then put two eggs in a pot to boil. I’ve always liked soft boiled eggs but have never been able to perfect the timing on them (they usually come out too hard or too soft).

I also attempted to eat a bowl of fruit but after a few bites remembered that I don’t like cold fruit. So, I left the bowl on the table for later enjoyment.

After running a few errands, I came home and finished the bowl of fruit. I also had some pistachio nuts, a mango smoothie and a lemon poppyseed muffin. That was my lunch. Later in the day I had an orange.

I wasn’t feeling very hungry until about 5:00. Then the stomach started rumbling and water didn’t seem to fill my appetite. But I had to wait until 6:00 before dinner was ready.

Tonight we had tuna cakes with wasabi tartar sauce, red cabbage and garlic grilled vegetables.

And it was absolutely delicious. I was a little hesitant about eating so much cabbage as I thought I might get sick of them after a little while but I actually went back for seconds.

The tuna patty was very filling and there were two patties for each person. So, guess whose belly was overfilled?

Now, having said that, I still left a little room to try the paleolithic brownies. They are flourless and I have to say they don’t compare with the really moist fudge brownies that I remember from so long ago (maybe a month).  Ahhh, she laughs. But in a pinch, these will do and we still have more time to experiment on how to make them a tad bit moister. (Have you noticed I say “tad” a lot? Hmmm … not sure where I picked that up from.)

This diet doesn’t seem to be hard if you don’t want it to be. It can be as simple as baking or grilling chicken with steamed vegetables. But it’s always nice to try to be a bit more creative, eh?
