I am going to try and post every day, if not every other day. I will post pictures of what I eat, the good, the bad and the ugly!
I will also try and tell you how I’m feeling.
What I ate the first day;
Breakfast ~ Carrot pumpkin muffins from the book, topped with Apple pumpkin butter, maybe 1 TBS ( 21 DSD approved the recipe) and bullet proof coffee made with Kerry Gold unsalted butter, coconut oil, cinnamon and cacao powder.
Lunch ~ Two eggs fried in bacon grease on top of Spaghetti squash hash browns.
Snack ~ Very small Granny smith apple ,Sunflower seed butter and 1 ounce of raw milk grass fed cheddar cheese.
Snack while shopping ~ Pistachio’s ( this was to keep me from sampling Holiday stuff!)
Dinner ~ 2 roasted chicken wings, drumstick ,a few slices of chicken breast with asparagus and a glass of raw milk. No pictures of the chicken or asparagus, they weren’t picture worthy 😉
How I felt ~ hungry all day and I was making sure to drink a lot of water and had 8 ounces of Home brewed Kombucha. I made extra chicken last night and boiled some eggs.
I’m having a hard time with some pain right now, due to getting tackled by a sweet playful pup on Sunday night. The pain was in my shoulder ( rotator cuff injury from years ago) on the right and today I can barely move my head and neck. The good news it’s not diet related and I go see my Chiropractor Wednesday! The bad is it’s making it difficult to type, cook, drive, shower, get dressed and everything else I forgot to mention. Here is to day 2 of the 21 DSD!!! Oh and nobody has died yet 😉
Let me start by saying, I cannot afford to buy grass fed meat, organic vegetables etc...
I am 50, unemployed (looking really hard) and disabled. I have no income right this very second. I am trying very hard to change that! I am married and my dear husband makes a very small amount due to working as contract for a mom and pop computer store. Now the nuts and bolts, so to speak. We are trying to live on less than $1500 a month. Lucky for us the only children we have are 2 dogs, 2 cats and one deranged bird named Spock. She’s a parakeet.
All of our critters are foundlings. The cats are 17 years old, the dogs are 14 and 5. We had all of them when we were financially in better shape and before the doctors had a heyday with my right leg and made it quite difficult to do what I do best, retail and food management. So here we are today.
I am attempting to do a Paleo/ Primal life style so I can get healthier. My husband ( I will refer to him from now on as DH, Darling Husband) wants to do Atkins. He did really well with it before and they are easy to combine, for the most part. I will be trying to do all of this on a meager budget since we do not get any kind of help. I will be really hunting and gathering all the bargains I can get!
Today’s hunt was really lucky. I got ten pounds of chicken leg quarters, a ten pound ham, a pork sirloin roast, frozen organic strawberries, frozen organic blueberries, goat milk cheese and organic raw milk sharp cheddar cheese all from one of my regular grocery stores. I love to hunt for bargains at Aldi. They do not give me any special deals. They have no clue I am putting them in my blog. My grocery total was $25.66. The only thing not in the picture is the huge bag of chicken leg quarters. When I figure out this whole blog thing I will add more than one picture at a time probably. So here is the picture.
