Similar to Chuck, I’ve been battling cravings and temptations but trying to stay in the real food realm. I did 7 days 100% grain, sugar (added), caffeine and alcohol free in May, and have been keeping a journal of my eating and exercise habits ever since, in an attempt to keep myself above 80/20 – and completely honest about it. I’m sleeping better, and feeling better (not to mention the scale’s looking better) already. Here’s a sample of what I’ve been eating.
Lazy: Philly Cheesesteak
I marinated a decent sized grass fed Ohio raised london broil for 2 days, then broiled it up for dinner #1. On day 2 I sliced the remainder and sauteed with local butter, organic mushrooms and onions. I ate it Philly-style with local raw milk cheese on organic green leaf lettuce wraps (with hot sauce of course).
Inspired: Bacon wrapped Wild Alaskan Cod filet served with pureed beets and wilted spinach.
Wrap the cod in good bacon (uncured, no sugar added), and fry in a pan until the bacon is crispy (Cod is fishy so you may want to soak in milk or lemon before wrapping, or use a less fishy sustainable fish). Meanwhile, peel beets and puree in a food processor (or blender with a few tablespoons of water – then strain). Wash spinach and place on the sides of the pan while the fish finishes, to wilt down spinach with the bacon grease.
