Shrinki's Primal food diary
I came across the Primal way of eating reading a free kindle book that I'd downloaded. Having done Atkins for over a year in 2004, I vowed never again.... So have not really looked in to any other low carb diets.... However, when I saw that I could eat most fruit and veg whilst following the primal blueprint I was sold!!
I am on day three, already three pounds down and enjoying the food :-)
So I thought I'd start a food diary... I have also signed up to Paleotrack to make sure I am not accidentally eating the wrong food.
Any comments/advice is welcome!
b - scrambled egg with tomatoes. Cherries.
l - baked salmon with spicy mango salsa (chopped mango, red onion, cucumber, red chilli, lemon juice and coriander)
d - burger with salad and xvoo/cider vinegar
25 minute bike ride
b - scrambled eggs with tomato and chilli. Strawberries.
l - avocado, Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella, xvoo/vinegar
d - Primal recipe tomato soup and burger with Boursin black pepper, salad.
70 minute walk
B - slice of melon, half buffalo mozzarella ball,
Parma Ham. Drizzle of xv olive oil.
S - baked fig with goats cheese wrapped in Parma ham on bed of rocket. Oil/lemon dressing.
L - Primal tomato soup with half leftover burger crumbled in and topped with grated cheddar.
D -Tuna steak, tomato, onion and cucumber spicy salsa. Sweet potato (yum yum Paleo with ghee)
This was one of the nicest dinners I have had for ages!! Totally sold on sweet potatoes!
Now having a decaf coffee with dash cream.
All 'strict primal' when run through the checker.
Exercise - 25 mins bike ride and 40 mins walking plus other active minutes doing housework etc.

Lots of rushing around doing chores etc.
Food plan today:
B - scrambled egg with tomato and chilli. Berries and small amount of cream.
L - chicken, bacon and avocado salad
D - steak and salad and maybe a sweet potato - if anyone has any advice on how often you can eat sweet potatoes please let me know!!
Food was as planned yesterday but no sweet potato. Dinner was a bowl of roasted tomato soup, half a steak (wasn't very hungry) spoonful of baked avocado and cheese, Boursin garlic mushrooms.
B - just black coffee - didn't get up until 10.30 :-)
L - cream of roasted tomato soup (home made Primal style!) crumbled bacon and cheddar sprinkled on top.
D - will be (picnic as out) chicken, spring onion and mayo salad. Berries and cream.
Didn't know you had started a diary.
Food looks good.
I will have to take a look at the Paleotrack.
Sweet potato you can have in moderation.What I usually do is have them for a week then have a week off them.
Here is what mark says about them The Difference Between Yams and Sweet Potatoes | Mark's Daily Apple
Also Are Potatoes Healthy? | Mark's Daily Apple
It's not about being better than others, it's about being better than YOU use to be.
A person of words and not deeds is like a garden full of weeds.

Food last night was the chicken mayo salad but didn't bother with the berries.
Food plan today:
B - coffee (not hungry at all)
L - I think I'll have a sweet potato with cheddar and leftover cooked chicken and salad. Yum!
D - omelette or similar.
Left my fitbit off after my shower at 4pm yesterday which is annoying as we walked quite a lot going to a local music festival.. Very happy with my increased activity and definitely exceeded the 3+ hours gentle cardio target. I didn't do any weight training though so will work in two kettlebell workouts (lots of primal moves) next week. Sprinting? Don't think I'm quite ready for 15 mins sprints yet but I do sprint up my three flights of stairs at least once a day!
B - tomatoes and bacon
L - Greek salad
D - burger and salad. Cheddar. Mayo.
All good until...
A few gin and diet tonics! My first artificial sweetener in a week...
My head is making me pay this morning......
I love your diary. So inspirational.
Thank you! Nice to see you here x
