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,Phooey Graphic take that (er….take that?)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.Protein & Carb Salad

There was dressing too, P made her special combination and has kindly agreed to share her recipe below.

P’s Dressing:

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.

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
