Breakfast is a staple at my house. I often cook everything in advance and eat leftovers daily. This is simply because of time constraints. I eat breakfast every day. If you think you’re too busy to eat breakfast, come and stay with me. If I’ve got the time, so do you.
This platter includes Shakshuka, Pork Bacon (Jessica bought the wrong thing, but I can’t let it go to waste), and Pineapple (organic).
This was my first snack today. Notice that I eat a hearty breakfast and a snack a few h0urs later. Multiple meals throughout the day make for a better nutrition program and prevent you from eating several calories in one sitting. Absent from this meal is protein. Not only did Jes buy Pork Bacon, but I cooked it and forgot to take it to work. In addition, I seldom eat peanuts. Too much inflammation associated with doing so. However, I forgot my raw, unsalted almonds with the bacon. Fortunately, I remembered the organic apple and made due with the company peanuts.
Lunch (My favorite Meal!)
Lunch seems to be a terrible habit for most people. You’re either far from home, out with co-workers, or feeling drained. However, none of these are excuses in my book. I work in an office. Most of my co-workers eat out every day. And being health minded, I find most of them lethargic, dreary, and slow to function in the afternoon. I wonder why?
To me, a good lunch is a leftover dinner from the night before. In the pic you’ll see a leftover (1/2) chicken breast, a leftover vegetable medley (zucchini, mushrooms, and onion), and some broccoli florets with dipping sauce.
A typical lunch of mine. AND I can make it through the rest of the workday!
Bacon. The blessing of all Gods.
So once again, I failed to instruct the household purchasing agent that I needed TURKEY bacon, not pork bacon. But I hate throwing money down the drain.
Here, you’ll see my second snack of the day. Two strips of bacon, 1/2 an orange, and a few natural almonds.
Again, another small snack (meal) in lieu of overeating. If you’re doubting yourself that you can do this, I encourage you to take a closer look. Anyone can eat like this. It simply requires determination, persistence, and planning.
And I’ll leave you with tonight’s dinner. An awesome crockpot recipe. Paleo style…
Please note that I did NOT eat any of the potatoes, snap peas, or gravy. The meat and the veggies were my main course.
So what will you do from here out? Succumb to the pressure of eating “comfort food”? Or can you “man-up” and live like a caveman?
Society tells you to do the former. Evolution tells you to do the later.
The ball is in you court.
