The Chiropractor Strikes Again

As I previously mentioned, I'm currently on a journey to get healthy.  Well, shit just got real.  My body has been improving on a corn, potato, and grain-free diet, but my chiropractor told me we needed to bring it to the next level.  She's put me on what she called a primal diet, which basically means awful.  I am 100% carb-free.  That means no sugar, no fruit except for granny smith apples, and only low-glycemic veggies.  The only sort of sugar I can have is xylitol.  It means my grain-free cookies are out, as is chocolate and tea and Christmas cookies and mulled apple cider and everything I love for December.

So what does that make a typical day like?  Here a few meal options:

Breakfast: 
Granny smith apple with peanut butter
Leftovers from dinner
Bacon and eggs

Snack:  
Dry roasted almonds
Veggies and hummus
Plain yogurt 

Lunch:
Homemade chicken soup
Salad with carrots, broccoli, romaine lettuce and chicken
Bacon wrapped, cream cheese stuffed chicken breast

Snack:
Granny smith apple with peanut butter
Bone broth
Peanuts

Dinner:
Broiled teriyaki salmon with steamed broccoli
Almond flour and Parmesan crusted Tilapia 
Burrito bowl

It's incredibly hard.  I feel really limited, and it's forcing me to try new things.  Which I'm not really good at.  But I feel good.  I was really lax around Thanksgiving.  I ate potatoes and wheat and a LOT of pie.  But I know this is only temporary.  Once my body is balanced, I'll hopefully be able to eat like a normal person.  Until then, I'm eating like a caveman.  Nuts and meats and grown things.  


And let me tell you, if I'm not ridiculously skinny by the end of this, I may drown myself in pasta.

  1. Have you looked at Elana's blog at elanaspantry.com? She has tons of paleo recipes. I got her almond cracker recipe for a student that's on a ketogenic diet (think paleo's hard? Keto's worse.) The crackers are awesome - and easy - and I've liked other recipes of hers that I've tried. She does a lot with almond and coconut flours for baked goods, as well.

    Hang in there! This too shall pass!

    Had to giggle about drowning in pasta. I feel that way about chocolate...
