Okay, so now that thesis is over I will stop being such a slacker and give more time and attention to this blog and you all :-) I haven't really had much of a chance to experiment with recipes the past two weeks, but I have put together some pretty tasty plates along the way, so I am going to share a bunch of them with you. If you ever want to stay in the loop with what I'm eating on a daily basis though, feel free to check out my instagram, @chronicillnesschronicles.
I've also fallen off the wagon (the autoimmune paleo protocol wagon that is) a few times in the past couple of weeks thanks to stress and anxiety, so I'll be writing a post about that on Wednesday. It's important to forgive yourself when you have a slip up, but I also like to prepare for the future so I can avoid the same situation from happening again. I was a bit bummed that I couldn't even handle a couple glasses of red wine the other night, but oh well! I found other ways to celebrate my thesis being completed: bacon, lovely company, and good tunes :-)
Once I get my life back together (although I feel like that's a process that is never-ending haha...) I'm going to try out some different recipes. I am still a little reluctant on trying AIP-treats because I'm not sure how I would respond to the flours and sweeteners/syrups (honey and maple) would sit with me. But, I might try out something for my thesis defense on Wednesdays since I need to bring some snacks. We shall see.
Anyway, here are my meals from the past couple weeks with pictures of each dish at the end of the post!
1) Chicken thigh, figs, plantain bread, greens, radishes, roasted carrots, and broccoli/cauliflower mash
2) Kalamata olives, greens, radishes, spaghetti squash, ground turkey, and mushrooms
3) Chicken wings, pumpkin puree, parsnips, and brussel sprouts
4) Ground turkey, frozen blueberries, greens, brussel sprouts, and roasted carrots
5) Tuna salad with greens, cucumbers, olives, and avocado cucumber guacamole
6) Pumpkin puree, blueberries, blackberries, and carob powder
7) Cod, white onion, greens, green beans, black berries, and golden sweet potato chips
8) Ground turkey, broccoli slaw, brussel sprouts, radishes, served in some leftover crock pot "juices" (I cringed typing that out - I don't really like the word juices I just realized...) (apple cider vinegar and chicken broth), and of course, plantain chips!
9) Ground turkey, kalamata olives, zoodles, greens, and green beans
10) Chicken thigh, cucumbers and oranges
Woo! Okay... hopefully that somewhat makes up for my absence, as I know you all have been waiting on baited breath for this post.
Have any of you all tried some new recipes lately? Maybe something St. Patrick's-day-themed? Let me know if there's anything out there that you'd like me to experiment with!
Until next time!
