I’ve gained a few pounds, of course, in the belly area. Not happy about that, especially with how healthy I eat. I’m cutting back on pistachio’s and 85% dark chocolate.
I’ve been eating a lot of soup, more specifically, my from scratch roasted chicken, carrots and riced cauliflower soup. I’ve also been making from scratch minestrone and replacing the pasta and legumes with small pieces of cauliflower, making it an entirely Paleo vegetable soup. It’s the broth that makes both of these soups so delicious and nutritious. Made from scratch, from start to finish with only whole ingredients.
I’ve stopped eating factory farmed animal products. I’m only eating organic, free-range chicken and eggs, and wild-caught Alaskan sockeye salmon. This is probably the closest I’ll get to doing my part to bring awareness to the terrible abuses in the animal farming industry. It may not be much, but it’s all I’ve got.
I buy the salmon directly from the fisherman and just received another 10lb order. The eggs I get from my best friend, who has given her hens the best of care and quality of life. The chickens I fear are still under the factory farmed umbrella, but it’s the best I’m able to do. I buy the Safeway O Organics free-range chickens. I make a lot of chicken stock and soup.
