Hong Kong Phooey!
In the end, yesterday was fraught.
And as it happened, it didn’t seem to matter. I met anything and everything that came my way head on. Alert, calm, ready – think Hong Kong Phooey legs squat, arms raised fending off each and every custard pie: heyah, zowee, whack, take that (er….take that?) There was no rattiness, no tears, no shouting or wailing (yes, it had previously been known), I just dealt with it. This is radical. Take note folks, this is life without sugar. More specifically, my Paleo life without sugar addiction and the roller coaster of emotional turmoil it brings with it. There is balance and an extraordinary sense of well-being and it is available to you too
And so, in the midst of all this, we made tea. We had forgotten to take the meat out of the freezer, so dashed out for some chicken breasts. M hard-boiled six of the free range eggs we picked up last Saturday from our local supplier (see picture below). Raiding the fridge we found lettuce, tomatoes (lovely deep red vine ripened), celery, green peppers, spinach all of which we piled into my favourite blue salad bowl. We topped this with a couple of handfuls of blueberries and some crimson pomegranate seeds. I cut the chicken into chunks and fried this in coconut oil together with some bacon. Everything was tossed into the salad bowl including the hard-boiled eggs.
There was dressing too, P made her special combination and has kindly agreed to share her recipe below.
4 parts olive oil
3 parts balsamic vinegar
half small chilli (finely chopped)
1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
put them into a jar and shake them up
the measurements don’t have to be perfect, just guesstimate.
Paleo is possible. What are your experiences of sugar addiction? Share them below, make a difference….
