Ugh.. curry not sitting right. I dunno it was so delicious the first time but now it's like boring a hole through my stomach.

Breakfast:
Coffeee with almond milk
2 omega eggs
Chicken sausage

Lunch:
Grilled chicken w/ cobb salad.  Minus the cheese and avacado (arent they supposed to have avocado? cheap bastards.)
w/ olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing

Snack:
Came home starrrrving. About a tablespoon of almond butter and a wee bit of raw honey, need some fuel for my work out.

Dinner:
Salmon (from a pouch.. ah well), an avocado, a tomato.  Mushed up in a bowl. I could call it a salad, but that would be generous.  It was pretty damn delicious after working out though.

Breakfast:
Coffee.. no almond milk left.
2 omega eggs.

Since I stopped cheating all the time and starting exercising and cutting back on booze I'm down like 8 lbs in week :P Amazing what not drinking a sixpack and eating a large pizza for dinner will do. Hah.

Lunch:
Order a grilled chicken salad with a side of bacon on top. None of this bacon-bit non-sense.  Was pricey tho.  Threw in my own avacado and olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing.  My coworker was looking at me like I was nuts:
 "Bacon on salad?" "I'm a diet." "Oh yeah hows that going?" "Lost 8 lbs. It's the bacon diet".

Dinner:
Hamburger and a tomato with some mustard
4 beers :( ... Could have gone a lot worse, at least there wasn't a pizza involved.

Breakfast:
Pic attached.
I was um.. a little bit hungry.


Dinner? I find if I eat a ton of food at 10am, I am fine until about 5pm.  Odd, if I eat regular amounts at 7am and noon I am starving by 5pm.  I did an hour of cardio today and I'm still not particularly hungry, just figure I should start diner before it sets in.

Making this http://groweatrun.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/roasted-capsicum-stuffed-with-chicken.html

No onion (apparently I forgot to buy enough!) more garlic, no salt (had enough this morning) and ground beef. 

Edited to add:

So, this recipe lists European units.  Which explains the 200 degree oven.  I said ok, 400 degrees.  Traditional roasted stuffed pepper is usually like 375-425ish.

Now we all know what happens to Olive Oil at 400 degrees right?  Ugh.  I should become the Foodee recipe tester.

Bleh:

Not very good. Quite bland.  The reason is not the lack of salt.  The reason is adding water and then boiling it off.  The cauliflower is going to retain a shit-ton of water, and it is going to come out when you bake.  Also at this point you're basically boiling meat, which unless you're making a stew, stock or curry should be against the law.

Using green curry paste instead of yellow (all I could find was yellow sauce, not paste, already full of sugar).

Breakfast:
Egg white and turkey bacon sammich de-breaded, sadly some cheese on it (this is supposed to be the diet option why cheese?)
ah well, when I cheat I eat like a fucking cow worth of cheese, so I'm not going to get too anal. 
Venti ice coffee.

That meat ball curry came out well! I think the recipe would benefit with putting some basil in the curry itself, and perhaps some lime juice?

Well, went off Paleo for a bit, was backpacking in Vermont.  Gained a few lbs.  Now I'm back.

Anyway, back now, back down a bit in weight

Breakfast:
Coffee with Almond milk
2 eggs
An Apple

Lunch:
Half a grilled bison steak
A salad of spinach and baby carrots. Dressed in BISONS BLOOD \m/ (well, meat drippings).

Dinner:
Tilapia. A bit undercooked.  Cooking on wood charcoal (real wood charcoal) is a fucking art.
Carrots and grape tomatoes with a bit of olive oil (raw/cold)

I grilled a fuckton of meat. My dog was staring the whole time salivating.

Huge shopping trip at Wholefoods.  I decided the easiest thing is to keep it simple:
Protein and salad ingredients. 

For protein:
2 lbs of tilapia
1.5 lbs of chicken breasts
1 lb of pork cutlets
A swordfish steak (frozen)
About a 3/4 lb Bison steak

For Salad:
Spring greens, Spinach, Celery, Baby Carrots, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Beets

For snacks:
Cashews
Walnuts
Bananas
Apples
Grapes

To Curb my 'thirst' (instead of booze)
Izzie softdrinks and Kombucha. Probably replace the Izzie's with club soda and and a little fruit next week, but one soda is better than 6 beers :P

I bought some some Jamacian Jerk for the pork and 'Chick Magnet' rub for the chicken.  I'm planning on cooking almost all of it today for the week, except for the seafood and half the chicken. I froze 1.5 lbs of the seafood, and one package of chicken breasts.  This way, easy food,  no need to cook during week hopefully.

Made this last night:
http://fastpaleo.com/creamy-ham-and-sweet-potato-soup/

Came out well, I used coconut milk, a tiny bit of arrow root and almond milk.  I sauteed the onion first in some pig fat.  I felt it was a little bland though (I went low sodium for the broth, since ya know, ham)... I think if I were to do it again I'd add some bay leaves and perhaps thyme.
