Paleo/Zero Excuses Day One: Complete

7 Nov

I’m not gonna lie. Today was not easy. But I go to sleep tonight hopeful. I could barely eat my breakfast. Giant omelet filled with veggies. But there was no delicious ketchup to go with it. I barely survived past 8am…

Eggs with peppers, onions, tomato and spinach!

Lunch was easier. Giant salad of lettuce, carrot, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and tuna with a homemade orange/lime vinegarette. I managed to almost enjoy it the whole time. I missed my honey balsamic dressing from Kens.

yum! lunch!

Snacks were (in no particular order): 2 bananas, 2 red plums and 7 baby carrots.

After work, hubby and I went for a 2.11 mile walk. Then came in and I did my squats, chest presses and kindasorta did my planks. Those sucked. Made me realize how out of shape I’ve gotten.

Dinner, however, saved the day. I had researched some recipes and found Blackened Tilapia. I made that with steamed broccoli and a sweet potato. Oh. Em. Gee. It was delish. I cook all the time but I’ve never made fish. It was perfect. Luckily I have a ton of tilapia so I will def be making it again.

Mmm! Heaven on a plate!

So I’m ending today in a high note. Hopefully tomorrow my condiment withdrawal will be a little less….

This is from the app on my phone so I’m not sure how it’ll turn out. If it’s wonky I’ll fix it Tuesday!

EDIT: Fixed all the weirdness from my app!!

Kerry, changing chick

    You were saying that you missed ketchup? There’s a recipe in The Primal Blueprint Cookbook for ketchup, that says it tastes pretty close to Heinz 51.

    1 6oz can tomato paste
    2/3 cup cider vinegar
    1/3 cup water
    3 tablespoons raw honey or pure maple syrup
    3 tablespoons onion, minced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/8 teaspoon black pepper

    Mix all ingredients in a food processor or with a hand-held blender until smooth. Add a bit more water if too thick. Store in a tightly covered jar in the ‘fridge.

    (Makes about 1 1/2 cups)

    I personally haven’t made it, because I don’t use a lot of ketchup, but it’s worth a try, right? 😀 Especially if you like it on something like omelettes that you’re gonna maybe be having a lot.
