Havent worked out all week :(  So today I'm gunnna kill it and eat accordingly.

Breakfast:
Coffee w/ almond milk
Homefries: Yam with pepper in beef tallow.  No sweet potatoes last time at whole foods.
A yet to be determined amount of omega-3 eggs.

Bought 'Well Fed', just started reading it.  I like her hot plate idea.  I do get in trouble if I'm starving and its going to take an hour to make dinner.  The idea of a cookup once a week sounds good, but I am not sure I want to keep cooked meat 5 days? I dunno.  I need to read more.  Still got a ton of meat from US Wellness and tomorrow me and my buddy are gunna have a paleo BBQ if it doesnt rain.

Lunch:
Tanka bar
2 sliders. I need to get some more veggies.

Regarding keeping cooked meat 5 days-- I tend to make a large london broil or tritip early in the week and cut pieces off for lunches. It keeps easily four or five days, and it's fast to make when you need something RIGHT NOW.

If you like it heated up, just throw it under the broiler for a few minutes. (Just make sure when you cook it first you make it a little more rare than you like, or re-heating over cooks it)

But I find it doesn't go off or anything in the time it takes me to eat it.

Actually I had dinner with my buddy and he said pretty much the same thing, he cooked up a bunch of stuff today for throughout the week.

Dinner:
Lamb kabobs with summer squash and green peppers
A pork loin with Dijon
Sangria

Desert:
A Mojito Pop I made in my new Zoku (this was enough for 6 pops, only made three)
1 cucumber, peeled & sliced
2 limes, freshly squeezed
10 mint leaves
1 cup water
2 Tbs Raw Honey

Headin up to the whites for some hiking.  Probably not going to be able to keep totally paleo, but at least there wont be booze.

Bringing beef jerky, dried fruits, cashews and almonds, pemmican and some fancy stone ground chocolate.  The lodge provides dinner and breakfast so I'll try to behave but definitely might need some carbs!

The weather is going to be crappy tomorrow so I plan to climb Wildcat D at 4062 feet and  Mt Adams 5,774 feet on Sunday.

If you want to have extra carbs, just try to make them Paleo carbs. There's no point in eating bread and pasta and the like just to eat carbs, if that's really your reason. Just eat starchy veggies and more fruit than you normally would for your extra carbs.

Well, it was a pretty unpaleo weekend.  My lunches were paleo but breakfast dinner (provided at the lodge) were a mixed bag.  US Wellnes Pemmican will keep for a few days unfrozen, they just say 'keep frozen' cuz the FDA makes them.

Still, after climbing two mountains in the weekend I'm back and feeling great, albeit sore.

Breakfast today:
3 omega eggs cooked in bacon fat.
Tanka bar.
God damn am I starving.

Lunch:
Had this: http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Detail.bok?no=512
Both of them.  yeah kinda an expensive lunch but my muscles want protein.

Made http://jensgonepaleo.blogspot.com/2011/03/lamb-osso-bucco-wwild-porcini-and.html and roasted brussel sprouts http://whiteonricecouple.com/recipes/gardening/roasted-brussels-sprouts-balsamic-vinegar/ the other night.

It was really good, but probably not something I'm going to do again.  Lamb Osso Bucco was $21 at US Wellness and I only ended up getting 2 meals out of it.  Lot of bone (yes of course I sucked out the marrow!)

Yesterday:

Breakfast:
Smoked Salmon
2 Omega eggs
1/4 bison burger

Dinner:

A stirfry of 2 1/4 bison patties, a bunch of shitake mushrooms and half an onion.  I was going to make this: http://www.thefoodee.com/recipe/4837/ but was too damn starving after the gym and only eating one meal.
Put in some chile, ground mustard, parika.  Kinda boring but it was a 'clean out your fridge' stir fry ;)

After that:

I tried to make this with coconut flour (cant find almond flour).
http://www.janssushibar.com/?p=14380
I think this was the most epic cooking fail I've ever had. I threw the whole thing out. I don't think I've ever done that in my life.  Basically the coconut flour is super sweet, and for the most part after 30 minutes in the oven still resembled flour.  I dunno wtf to do with this coconut flour. I actually bought it for calamari but now I'm thinking maybe paleo cookies? Not a big sweets guy.

Coconut flour absorbs A LOT of liquid. It can't be swapped in a recipe with almond /hazelnut flour. It should be just fine for calamari though. ;)

I'll keep that in mind!  I'll try the calamari this week.

Today:
Coffee w/ almond milk
2 omega eggs 1/4th lb bison patty

'Lunch'
Kale chips and kombucha.  I find if you eat eggs and bison for breakfast, you aren't too hungry.

Dinner:
Early dinner, made this http://thedomesticman.com/2012/07/10/rogan-josh-kashmiri-lamb-curry/
So god damn good.  Used 2.5 lbs of lamb shoulder w/ bone in.
Poor dog is fasting today cuz he has an upset tummy, he must think I'm torturing him.
Anyway, I think I made a bit too much, I have like 3 gallons of curry now.  Wish I had a food processor to make paleo rice or paleo naan existed!

Breakfast:
Coffee, w/ almond milk.
2 eggs
chicken sausage from whole foods

Lunch:
Lamb curry.
Hey I googled Paleo Naan: http://southerngirlgoespaleo.blogspot.com/2011/03/coconut-curried-lamb-with-coconut-naan.html
Next time maybe I'll do this and cauliflower 'rice'
An apple.

Snack:
Some Walnuts
an Apple

Dinner:
Not feeling too great, bit of a sore throat.
Grassfed chuck and zucchini kabobs.  Cooked in the oven with some olive oil (it's raining)
Still pretty chewy, marinated for 24 hours in pepper, olive oil and vinegar to try to soften it up.  I think lemon juice is key, I forgot the lemon juice.  Still, it was pretty cheap.  Still got about a half pound of it the freezer.  Next time I buy I'll make curry or stew with it.
