It’s Monday, people! And I’m in a food mood so let’s talk about meals for a minute.
As you may already know, nearly each week I post about REAL MEALS, made by me, that I actually eat. Buuuuuuuuuuuut unfortunately, I don’t have many pics to share with you this time because I somehow forgot to take some last week. Oops. The pics I do have, however, are all very easy food choices. They’re Paleo and Whole30 compliant and of course AIP.
These Day on a Plate posts are an effort to show the reality and daily grind behind the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet. Sometimes it isn’t pretty, isn’t a fancy recipe, isn’t ideal but it’s always compliant and nutritious. I’m sure you’ve heard the term food is fuel.. and well.. it’s true. Also, consistency is key. 😉
Gotta be honest.. I struggled with meal planning this week and it showed. So… I had coconut water for breakfast.. a lot. Definitely not my preferred breakfast but what can ya do? Show grace.
Sometimes life means improvising, learning and doing better the next week.
I will say, C2O brand of coconut water is pretty darn good. It’s a product that never used to have any appeal to me but discovering the awesome electrolyte content in coconut water made it worth acquiring a taste for. Harmless Harvest Coconut Water is by far the superior brand but this one is good for budget minded folks, such as myself. 😉
So this wasn’t like a normal afternoon snack.. nope. This was an “I need to eat SOMETHING or else I’ll eat EVERYTHING” type of late-night Netflix binging snack. It did the trick! Healthy fat usually does. Plus, the crunch of the sweet potato chips quieted my cravings. I definitely recommend Jackson’s Honest Sweet Potato Chips. So. Freaking. Good.
If that pic doesn’t make you drool something is wrong with you. This was the most delicious grass-fed, grass-finished Chuck Roast in the world. So tender, juicy and flavorful. I put it in my slow cooker for most of the day with a bunch of herbs then made gravy out of the drippings. It paired perfectly with cauliflower mash.
My daughter had some too, and LOVED it, but freaked out when she found a leaf in her food. Apparently, she’s not a fan of me forgetting to remove the bay leaves before serving up her plate. LOL!
Rock your AIP diet, my friends.
