We are hanging in there. Daddy Grok is itching for a soda or candy bar something fierce, but he’s staying strong. Mama is rolling with it. . . she received some exciting news today (not sharing yet, thank you), so that’s distracting me from the detox.
2 eggs over medium (cooked whites, runny yolks) with one slice of Quick Bread from Paleo Indulgences. This is a simple bread that takes just a couple ingredients. I cooked it in a large mug in the microwave. Once it was firm, I dumped it onto a plate and allowed it to cool for a few minutes. Then, using a serrated knife, I sliced the bread into 3 rounds and toasted them. It was quite good topped with melted butter and dipped in egg yolk. 🙂 (Oops, I slacked on veggies today.)
My kids are sick. . . so meals were weird today. I did make a smoothie for the kids with almond milk, bananas, & frozen berries and a couple of the kids tried to eat a few scrambled eggs.
I cooked a total of 10 eggs, which my chickens happily provided me with today. But, it I had to buy those, we’d say $3-4 for free range eggs. The bread was super cheap, 3 servings included a few TBS of almond and coconut flour, a bit of butter, and an egg.
Lunch- kids nibbled on leftovers as their appetites dictated. Mama and Daddy munched on some more of that delicious Aidell’s Sundried Tomato Salami with aged cheddar. Mama ate a banana somewhere in there and also enjoyed a cup of coffee with cream (Daddy had tea with cream).
Dinner- Sorry, no picture. . . I wanted to, but in true Grok form, we gobbled it up! Pork steaks & big salads with 1/2 cup soaked brown rice & butter. Everyone wanted more rice, but Mama stuck to her guns. Level 1 allows one serving of 1/2 cup for the day. So, that’s what we did. There may have been moments during the meal when both Daddy and Mama sucked the meat from it’s bones. . .
The pork steaks were a super deal- 2 large steaks for $2.00-$2.25 each pack. I bought 3 packages for a total of less than $7.00. We ate more than we needed tonight. . . but have no guilt (or tummy bloat). The steaks were such a good deal because they were on club card sale and an extra 50% off because they were close to their sell by date. Woohoo! We almost never buy pork (except some good bacon or sausage), so buying a conventional pig product isn’t wearing on me too much.
Today dinner was about $10, breakfast would have been less than $10 even if we had to buy the eggs. . . lunch was mostly leftovers/fridge clean out so nearly free.
The kids did want to snack more today. . . probably because their bellies didn’t cooperate with a protein and fat breakfast so they had more sugar crashes. The definitely ate more fruit today, so we spent probably another $5.00 on snacks and the breakfast smoothie.
