Another Whole 30

Technically, I’m only STARTING another Whole 30, rather than ‘doing’ another one, because I didn’t finish ‘doing’ the last one, nor the one before that, nor the one before that, nor … you get the idea. Why didn’t I finish?  I decided my desire for a quinoa cracker was worth more than my desire to […]

The Great Jerky Experiment – Update

I’ve been making jerky on and off for a year now.  I still always worry that it wont turn out properly, and I’ll kill someone because they’ve eaten not-quite-dehydrated-enough ‘raw’ meat.  Mortality count at the time of posting: 0. In one of my earlier posts I hypothesised that maple syrup (or sweetener in general) was […]

I <3 Mayo

This Whole 30, I subscribed to the Whole30 daily email in an attempt to keep me on track.  There have been some very useful tips and today’s email (Day 17) has some fantastic ideas for what to do with one of my favourite food accessories … home-made olive oil mayonnaise.  I often end up eating […]

Melting In Melbourne

It’s disgustingly hot at the moment – we’re in the middle of 4 consecutive days over 40C/104F. I’m also in the middle of a Whole 30 challenge.  The hardest part has been resisting sugar laden icy poles and sorbet.  I’ve been making smoothies with frozen banana or pineapple (plus cacao powder, cocoa nibs, coconut cream, […]

Ras el Chipotle Meatballs

It’s been a looong time since I last made meatballs.  I remember them being a bit fiddly, so I usually just end up making a bolognaise-type sauce with mince instead.  Fortunately, I decided to give them another go, and it turns out they can be quite easy and worth the little bit of extra effort.

Your Diet is NOT a Lifestyle

Your Diet is NOT a Lifestyle Great article from Angelo Coppola @Humans Are Not Broken “Think more about life and less about style.  I don’t want my gravestone to say: He lived a paleo lifestyle” “You are the sum total of all of your actions, thoughts, decisions, likes, dislikes, triumphs, defeats, aspirations, regrets, and everything […]

Chris Kresser | Beyond Paleo: moving from a “paleo diet” to a “paleo template”

Chris Kresser | Beyond Paleo: moving from a “paleo diet” to a “paleo template” I love this idea of Paleo as a template.  I don’t believe that one rule applies to all – it definitely comes down to what works best for you. Education is key; making informed decisions about what you put in your […]

Read Thy Labels! : Whole 30 Final Stretch

I’ve come unstuck again.  This time, I fell over a sausage hurdle.  In my defence, the sausages were not purchased by me, nor cooked by me and I did ask ‘are these gluten free’ and received a ‘yes’ prior to chomping on said sausage.    Then reality hit me as I remembered that my mum (the […]

Whole 30 Days 3 – 7

Not only did I survive visiting my parents, but I made it through Week 1!  Yay me!  Quite an achievement given that it took me 3 days to complete Day 1. 😉  My food bill is certainly feeling the effects – for the better!  Many people complain about Paleo being more expensive, but per kg, […]
