WHATCHA EATIN’? Do you eat seasonally? (What’s in season anyway? I feel like mushrooms are, 365/24/7).
I usually go through phases where I’m absolutely balls to the walls with a specific food, and then I phase out and get bored of it. Then it comes back a few months down the road. For example, I was obsessed with salmon belly for a certain amount of time, then it was lamb, then almond milk, then canned coconut milk, then turbot fish, then steak, and….that’s what I’m currently on!
Oh wait. there’s one more thing.
I always keep these things to eat. If you asked me what I eat on a daily basis, I’d say “protein plus some fat and some vegetables. That’s literally what my plate looks like.” And you can see that in action on instagram:
Pasture-raised chicken lettuce wraps dipped in @mina red bell pepper sauce and MCT oil. I may be off my regular fitness and nutrition game but I still try to keep it healthy when I can! Its important to me that I at least make en effort to eat good to feel good physically, even if emotionally a little lost. What's on your plate today? Healthy or No, share with me in the comments below. 👇
Lately I've been digging coconut curry! This was chicken liver with coconut milk, curry, and mint. Call be weird but I thorough enjoyed this concoction. I make sure that I warm the coconut milk but never boil it for too long (in the past somehow it's lost its creaminess and no longer tastes the same and turns translusclent instead of being white; I don't know f this was just a fluke but I don't want to risk it again. Coconut milk has great Medium Chain triglycerides, which provides quick energy and in my opinion, is my preferred fatty acid of choice. Sometimes I eat this with salmon to add in some omega 3 fats too. Coconut milk is common in Thai cuisine. If you're not sure how yo start using it, mix 1/4 of a cup in your favourite soup to start 🙂 Do you like the taste of coconut? What's on your plate today?
Salmon salad is love. Salmon salad is life. I love getting in salmon belly because its naturally fatty when it mix it in with greens; the healthy omega 3's act as coating so I don't have to add as much dressing to the lettuces. Omega 3's also fight inflammation, aids with cognition and weight loss 🙂 make sure you're getting in an even ratio of omega 3 to 6's each day!
I eat a primarily keto-paleo diet, which means I stick to wholesome foods and keep things moderate protein, high fat, and very low carb.
I made a video a long time ago after a grocery haul from wholefoods + online shopping:
(Yikes–that was highschool Linda)
Feel free to print this out and make it your own grocery list!
- Unsweetened Almond milk
- Canned Coconut Milk (I love mixing indian spices with this in my frother to make a hearty soup)
- Romaine Lettuce (I munch on these like a rabbit munches on carrots!)
- Iceberg Lettuce (^ see above note)
- Eggs (easy, on-the-go snack!)
- Pi dan
- Sardines (great source of calcium and zinc! Just make sure you eat the bones)
- Beef Liver (loads of vitamins)
- MCT C8 Oil (my favorite source of oil)
- Kimchi / Sauerkraut (really great for digestion!)
- Coconut oil
- Seaweed (these make great snacks!)
- Boullion cubes
- Cilantro (I can eat these straight up like a cow eats grass)
One thing about buying fish though–I hate having to scale them. I’d opt to buy the fillets whenever I can. Some of my favourite ones are Turbot, Burramundi, and tuna! (not the canned ones)
What’s a pantry staple to you? What’s always in your fridge?
