What We Ate This Week
We thought we would take a photo of each of our meals so you get an idea of what a week of paleo eating looks like for us. It was a busy week with work and studying for a gym instructor exam so nothing too fancy. We tried out Riverford plus we picked up some frozen wild salmon and jars of tuna from the supermarket. We also had some frozen veg left in the freezer so we used that up as well.
It was only the second time I’ve bought from Riverfords. All the fruit and veg looked good and lasted well. Meat was more hit than miss. Pork chops, lamb, chicken legs, gluten free sausages and beef mince were all nice, the steaks sucked though. Value wise I think I prefer Abel & Cole but not a huge amount of difference between them.
Friday started off with a fennel and tomato omelette with a few pieces of bacon. Lunch was a chicken leg with some spices, broccoli and watercress. Ellie and I did a Gym Jones tabata workout after work and then enjoyed a pork chop with veg and a couple of squares of dark chocolate.
Saturday’s breakfast was a couple of gluten free pork & apple sausages with 2 eggs then we headed off for the gym instructor practical exam. All went well so just the theory to go. We did a 60min bike ride at the gym then came back home for a steak, some salad and sweet potato mash. Dinner was roast lamb, some more sweet potato and veg.
Chilled on Sunday. Leftover lamb with onions and an egg for breakfast. Round my mum’s for Sunday lunch (lamb roast) then back home and Ellie made us a pear crumble with some ground nuts in the evening.
Ellie’s dad has recently got some hens so he brought us a few eggs round at the weekend. We used those for breakfast with some mushrooms then made a fennel and wild salmon omelette for lunch. Dinner was some minced beef with salad and sweet potato before I headed out to Krav Maga class.
Tuesday’s breakfast was a pretty sorry-looking 4 eggs scrambled. Roast pork with veggies for lunch then a few 800m running intervals before dinner of steak and veg. Didn’t realise it was a braising steak but didn’t have time to slow cook it so took the chance and grilled it – steak fail all round.
Wednesdays we had scrambled eggs with leeks for breakfast and then a tuna salad for lunch. Espresso in the afternoon – I’ll usually have one coffee and one cup of tea a day. Dinner was liver pate, sweet potato, roasted veg and then off to kettlebell class.
Thursday was pork chop and a fried egg then some more liver with salad for lunch. I don’t eat much fruit but had a banana and some nuts for a snack and then some steamed wild salmon with a salad. We we’re running a little low on food at this point so this was quite a light day.
