Living Below the Line Paleo style – Day 3 – I cheat

Weight 10st 7.4lb, no change from yesterday.

Yesterday I was hungry, more I think because the cats and my son had kept me up a lot of the night and when I’m tired I get really snacky.

This is what I have left for the next 3 days.


From the left, clockwise:

  • A tub of chicken and herb stock
  • almost half a buttenut squash
  • most of a leek
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 small red peppers, 1 small yellow, 1 large green
  • 7 coconut and herb meatballs
  • 8 meatballs with apple
  • wild garlic
  • tiny bits of celery
  • half a block of coconut cream
  • small portion of samphire
  • one asparagus spear
  • wild garlic
  • chard
  • spinach (boiled up and chopped)
  • also I have one and a half sweet potatos.

I’m too hungry to meal plan.

Breakfast, spinach, red pepper, wild garlic scrambled egg.

Lunch; 3 meatballs, wild garlic and butternut squash soup made from chicken stock

The soup was actually nice and it’s probably what I’ll have for most of tomorrow but meanwhile. I cracked and ate this. Non paleo, well out of budget but I’m too hungry to think straight, I’ve got a meeting to go to in half an hour and I need to be sentient. Fuck it.

This isn’t the end of the week for me though, I’ll stick to what I have for the rest of the week. Maybe.
