That's not to say that Friday night's dinner wasn't great because it was. Steak and Cauliflower Hash was on the menu. As I was at work Chae cooked for us, the cauliflower has had onion, bacon, cauliflower, paprika, garlic and lemon juice. Chae also decided to add in a pinch of chili powder for a little bit of spice in the mix, the steaks didn't ask for any flavorings but Chae decided to add some garlic powder for some more flavor... we love garlic.
We had a lazy afternoon together at home and then had to leave to go to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, we didn't have dinner because of our late lunch.
So what have I learnt about Paleo So Far?
And for those of us who find certain foods that do work for us that aren't strictly "paleo", it's just a matter of incorporating that in.
Personally, I also eat quinoa, oats, goat's cheese, buckwheat and corn regularly, and Evans is all for this.
Chae and I discussed how we liked eating Paleo but we didn't like that we were so restricted to eat a certain meal on a particular day, what also made us a little uneasy about the program was that when we saw the next week's shopping list and meals that we needed to make roast a chicken on a Wednesday night. We also realised that, being created in America, they have a rather different culture where foods are prepared to high standards and this just doesn't suit our busy lifestyle.
We have decided to take ques from Jill Hogan and eat the foods that sit well with us while still practicing Paleo at the same time.
As I think I posted on my first blog about the Paleo Restart program, our first shop took us to $240.00, I deem this to be quite an expensive shop. Our shop today only turned out to be $140.00 which is a little bit nicer on our hip pocket. We still bought the fruit, vegetables and meat but all of the foods that we wanted to eat.
Now because Chae and I won't be following the Paleo Restart program doesn't mean that I won't be posting anymore about our progress eating Paleo, I just won't be posting as often. Tonight Chae is cooking the last dinner on this weeks Paleo Restart program which is a Chili Paleo burgers and Sweet Potato Fries, Paleo wise this is an open burger.
