What I Ate Wednesday: Thursday Edition, 21 Day Fix with Paleo Meals (4/7/16)

On Wednesday I was standing in the vineyard and realized I forgot to take a picture of my breakfast for my What I Ate Wednesday post. D’oh! So I figured it wasn’t a big deal, I’ll just track my meals on Thursday. It would be […]

Breakfast Sweet Potato Boats

Breakfast Sweet Potato Boats

Typically I start a post saying something like “sorry I haven’t posted in a long time, I’ve been busy working on my dissertation.” Well, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve finished my dissertation, defended it, and passed so I’m officially Dr. Plank! Now I just […]

End of the Week Review of Once a Week Cooking

Here are the latter meals I had in my week of once a week cooking, and my review of the experience: Wednesday’s meals included: Breakfast: Scramble of 2 eggs+4 egg whites (been trying to get more protein into my day, so I have been adding […]

Whole 30 Day 29

Whole 30 Day 29

Only one day left of Whole 30! It doesn’t really feel like it’s the end, however, because now I feel like I have some newly-established habits. I’m looking forward to my final weigh-in, measurements, and comparing my before and after photos. I really want to […]

Whole 30 Day 27

Whole 30 Day 27

Day 27! Only 3 days left of Whole 30. I’ve already decided that I love the way I’m eating, and except for adding some “sensible indulgences” like dark chocolate, wine, good cheese, full-fat Greek yogurt, and bacon, it really wouldn’t phase me if I kept […]

Whole 30 Day 26

Whole 30 Day 26

It’s almost been a year since starting Paleo, but for some reason it took me way too long to start incorporating dinner leftovers into breakfast. I’ve seen people on other Paleo blogs include leftover veggies, but for some reason I didn’t think I could stomach […]

Whole 30 Day 25

Today was a fun day because my university’s graduate student council hosted a 2012 Euro Soccer party for the final match between Italy and Spain. I’ve been a fan of Italy for a really long time, so of course I wanted to go. Therefore my […]
