Not much of one. You have to make sure to season it well. My favorite way to eat it is simply roasted with olive oil and paprika. Yum yum yum.

Pulled pork! It was yummy.

This weekend I'm writing a menu plan for the next month. That's the plan anyway!

oh also, PW, I wanted to mention that if you want to cut out mayo and not have disgustingly dry tuna salad, you can substitute 2 tablespoons mayo with half a smashed avocado. It tastes really good, and is nice and creamy, the only downside is if you make leftovers it'll turn brown and ugly (but still tastes fine).

This morning I had a can of those little Vienna Sausages (baby food, basically LOL). About 300 calories, 25 g of fat, 13.3 g of protein, and 3.3 g of carbs. I was running errands and doing some grocery shopping so didn't have time for my normal breakfast. Grabbed a little tin of those sausages at the store for the high fat.

For lunch I plan on having some more chicken, and I'll be boiling some more Chinese tea eggs for the following few weeks! Absolutely recommend them, they are delicious! Especially if you love tea I can't cook, and even I can't mess up boiled eggs LOL

I also picked up some natural peanut butter at New Seasons, chocolate coconut flavored. 200 calories per serving with 17 g of fat and 5 g of net carbs. Not much different from generic peanut butter, but it'll satisfy my cravings for anything chocolate-y and it's bound to make celery taste loads better. I'm a huge peanut butter addict.

Oh, that's a fantastic idea!! I love mayonnaise but the calories and the carbs... I actually just picked up a few avocados at the grocery market today, so that sounds perfect.

I love Indian Cauliflower soup I actually made some yesterday! Yum. It's simple and really taste great (IMO).

Chop 1 Onion & some ginger and put in big pot with butter. Once onions are glossy add 1 big cauliflower, add curry ( I use curry paste, but you can just use normal curry as well) and 1,25 liters of broth (I use vege since Im vegetarian). Let simmer until cauliflower is cooked. Puree, add salt and pepper to taste. Done.

This is really good. We've done it with tuna and used a whole avocado instead of mayo. Added a little bit of red onion, lemon juice, salt pepper and voila! It was delicious. We ate it out of the bowl but on crackers or tortilla chips it would be freaking amazing.

Good gracious I need to find that PB! Gonna scour the health food store tomorrow!


Today I had chocolate protein power with Almond milk, and stormy night tea with coconut milk.
Then I snacked on crap at work. It was the day from hell and while I was dishing out all the crackers and goodies to the kids at work I couldn't resist a little snack
On the plus side it was just a handful of pumpkin and sesame seeds and a handful of cheese crackers...I resisted the urge to snatch the brownies and cookies out of the kids hands and stuff 'em in my mouth
Gonna have a big salad with chicken for dinner and then try find a snack later that is low in carbs but will get my calories up. Having a problem keeping them up once I cut out all the carby crap.

Uhhhh yum to that peanut butter for sure. Holy crap.

Breakfast was two eggs, 1 oz pepperjack cheese, and FOUR pieces of bacon today. Whooo crazy!
Lunch was one chicken sausage leftover from yesterday, a medium sweet potato, maybe 1 tsp of butter and cinnamon and chipotle powder. I meant to grab almonds and forgot. I did grab about four dried apricots however. But I'm starving so I really regret the lack of almonds.
I'm thinking chicken and broccoli for dinner tonight, though this whole cauliflower crust pizza thing has me intrigued... I guess it depends if I swing by the grocery store on my way home... hmmmm.
