Clan Resettlement

Busy weekend caught up in shopping and settling into our new home.  The views here are amazing.  There is a picture window here which frames the view across the rooftops and captures perfectly the beauty and vastness of the sky.

Over Rooftop Moor

I have become a weather watcher, checking the clouds for rain, watching the wind pick up before the storm and the sun poke through, a pocket of bright colour and light.  In keeping with this, breakfast on Saturday was light and simple and kept me going throughout the day with no desire to eat until supper.

We poached Haddock in a raw milk sauce with herbs and flavourings. On top of each slice we added a poached egg, each yolk a bright natural yellow.  We fried some green spinach, mushroom and tomato in coconut oil and placed this by the side of the dish and M garnished my plate with a single strawberry.  It was an exciting combination flavours and textures, satisfying, filling.  The children all ate the dish, no complaints.

Often times I hear people challenge primal eating on the grounds that it is too expensive.  I disagree.  What happens naturally is that you eat less often.  That the combination of food you make will satisfy and sustain you for longer periods and you will not notice that you have missed lunch or breakfast.  Try it and see.

On that note too, good things do happen if you stay open to the possibility.  On the way back from IKEA we called into the co-op for something for tea.  We happened upon the reduced aisle and were staggered to see a huge amount of meat and fish reduced to rock bottom prices and by that I mean reduced by over 80%.  M and I loaded up the trolley with pure good quality protein, taking what we needed for the seven days ahead, planning to freeze what we could not use immediately.  These things will happen for you too.

What good things happened to you this weekend?  We would love to hear your story…

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!
