REBOOT: V4 Day 30/30

Wowwwweeeeee!!!! I cannot believe I made it to the end (or is it the beginning?)!! I feel as though the days have flown by but on the other hand, it feels like fffooorrrrrrreverrr since I began. So what have I learnt? It would be a waste of time and energy if I’d gotten to this…

REBOOT: V4 Day 29/30

Did I just type in day 29!!!!??? How ?!? Really!?!? I cannot believe it. When I started this journey that title seemed like a lifetime away!  Breakfast  It’s the beginning of the school holidays so I thought I’d treat my kids to some crepes for breakfast. They didn’t even realise that these weren’t the regular ones…

REBOOT: V4 Day 28/30

Another ‘one meal’ day. This time it was dinner. I think it was exhaustion (barely slept as I was up most of the night with a sick child) coupled with excitement at getting my new food processor! I never thought I’d be that lady but turns out, I am!  So motivated was I that I made…

REBOOT: V4 Day 27/30

So this was a one-meal day. Thankfully, breakfast was filling and sustained me. The reason for not eating – kid #2 decided to jump on the sick bus! Plus I’m also not feeling great (it’s bound to happen in a month-long programme, ya get me?!)  Breakfast   Omelet, filled with chilli, green pepper, tomato, and…

REBOOT: V4 Day 26/30

Gah! When you have a sick kid, you gotta find some superhuman strength to get on with daily tasks! Nevermind a boisterous toddler thrown in the mix…  Breakfast    Bacon and avo fritters, tomato and chilli chutney, scrambled egg.  Lunch    Leftover lamb & cauli.  Dinner   Chicken curry, cauli, sambals. This was so good!

REBOOT: V4 Day 25/30

Gosh, day 25!! The end is nigh! Today was a total wash out in terms of activity. I got stuck in a book. A great, funny, romantic, weird, awesomely chick-litty-definitely-not-Booker-Prize-material book. I managed breakfast at 11-ish, and then dinner. A pretty decent dinner at that!  Breakfast   BAT (bacon, avo, tomato) sandwiched between 2 mushrooms.  Dinner…

REBOOT: V4 Day 24/30

I don’t think I can write too much about this day because I spent most of it cleaning. Not just the usual clean-till-it’s-good-enough… I mean move-furniture-and-deep-clean cleaning. Took me about four hours. I even rearranged the kids’ bedroom! I think it was this amazing breakfast that gave me a much needed boost.  Breakfast     Eggs…

REBOOT: V4 Day 23/30

I think today can be classified as a fasting day. No breakfast, no lunch, no snacks. I just wasn’t up for it. Actually, I wasn’t up for much today. I’m sure it’s the dull, grey weather that has me feeling all depressed all over again. And the cold! Ugh.  However, I made an effort with…

REBOOT: V4 Day 22/30

Breakfast    Eggs in pepper slices, with smoked trout ribbons and mayo, and half a grapefruit.  I saw the egg-pepper idea ages ago and have been wanting to give it a try. What a disaster! It really shouldn’t have been this tricky but I think the fact that the pepper was small and the eggs…

REBOOT: V4 Day 21/30

It’s Father’s Day!  Breakfast   This was so filling. Brandwich, with boiled egg, mayo, and spring onion, served with grilled tomato, and mushrooms.  I skipped lunch again. I’m really positive this is a hormonal thing. My moodiness, lack of hunger, and feeling generally ‘ugh’ is just hard to ignore. Maybe it’s because I’m not eating enough,…

REBOOT: V4 Day 20/30

A busy day that started with meeting old neighbours for breakfast at a local farmer’s market. I ended up having just a black coffee. There was a lot on offer, but I couldn’t have most of it! I wasn’t too hungry so didn’t mind. Watching everyone tuck in to pastries and cookies and lattes was…

REBOOT: V4 Day 19/30

I’m finding myself less and less hungry in the mornings, and not sure this is a good thing. I made some egg muffins (ok, I made what we’re supposed to be egg muffins but I call them ‘mutant muffins’ instead because they were a disaster!).  Breakfast  Bacon and egg muffins    See what I mean?! They…

REBOOT: V4 Day 18/30

Oh. My. God. This morning saw the birth of the most delectable paleo pancake ever (in my humble opinion). I am not a fan of the banana based ones (actually, I’d go as far as to say I reeeeeeaally dislike them) so decided to throw some things together and hope for the best.  Breakfast    That’s…

REBOOT: V4 Day 17/30

I could not face any eggs this morning so I had leftover kebabs and roti – yeah, I know, woe is me! It tasted even better after sitting overnight and developing the flavours even more. As much as I wanted to sit and vegetate for a while, I had chores to do and a toddler…

REBOOT: V4 Day 16/30 

Whoa… Talk about hormonal. I was in one crappy mood this morning. My husband practically begged me to eat some carbs, so I made some paleo microwave bread instead!   Egg salad on paleo microwave bread, with a side serving of spinach, rocket and watercress. It hit just the spot and I felt better!  Lunch  After spending…
