A Paleolithic Diet – Day 11

I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I haven’t had any bread, pasta, rice, milk, sugar or cheese. It seems quite incredible to me. I’m not sure I would have had the inclination or desire to try this diet if it weren’t for my son.

So here we are on day eleven. Woohoo! I was supposed to make french toast with banana bread but when I awoke I had a desire for fried eggs so instead, I had banana bread (paleo-style) with 2 fried eggs and 2 slices of turkey bacon.

The banana bread was quite good and would have worked well as french toast.

For lunch, I had chicken salad that had apples in it. So sorry — no picture because (again) the recipe was made for my husband’s lunch during the week and I forgot to take one before I had a quick bowl.

Side note:  After having almost finished the bowl of chicken salad, I started experiencing wheezing. In the past, I get tingling in my mouth when I eat fresh fruit like apples (mainly because of the pesticides on it). I didn’t expect to have this reaction though as I had had a slice for breakfast that my husband gave me. I did have to use my asthma inhaler in order to get rid of the wheezing. (Even if I clean the apple really well or peel it, I still have this reaction with some apples.)

Dinner included onion burgers (served with no bread or bread crumbs), pico de gallo, guacamole sauce, garlic aioli sauce and caramelized onions.

Mmmmmmm …… very good and filling. The hamburger was too big though (but that doesn’t mean it didn’t get eaten). (she smiles)
