Extraordinary Win

Fuelled by a mammoth paleo breakfast, child number 4 headed off to football this morning.  He asked me to record for you that his team won 13 – 0.  As goal keeper,  he is particularly proud although on closer examination it does appear that there was not that much to do at his end……At home, Friday was taken over by the arrival of FIFA 12.  And Saturday.  Saturday night Caleb came to tea and for a sleep over with Rob and to try out for the FIFA12 challenge underway at the house!  Er …followed closely by Chippy who turned up with Brad and oh well I guess you get the picture.

The weather here has been warm with bright sunshine.  For October in the UK this is unheard of.  So with this unexpected crowd, tea was grown out of leftovers, salad and meat, bar-b-cued at short notice by M.  I love these free and easy meals.  Pop made up a batch of her dressing for the salad and I had a batch leftover which I poured over my roast veg at Sunday lunch today and which tasted so good – who needs sugar when you can have fat?

Last night I experimented with a paleo pudding.  I had a bunch of bananas leftover from the week.  The skins were a little bruised and the kids had left them in the corner of the fruit bowl, unimpressed.  I peeled several and split them open, stuffing jersey goat’s butter between the layers.  I tucked some pecan nuts into the mush and, on the bananas for the kids  I drizzled some honey.  I wrapped the skinned bananas in tin foil (I realised after that they came in their own wrapping but hey, after a couple of tequilas….).  M tossed them on the grill pan over the hot ashes in the bar-b-cue and we talkedflame-grilled-burger for a while watching the embers, aware of  hot rich delicious aromas coming up from the pud.  Some time later we unwrapped the sticky packets.  The bananas were a huge hit, served with a blob of yoghurt and a couple of green mint leaves for effect….oh yes we do things properly in Yorkshire!!

How did your weekend go?  What did you eat on your paleo journey ….

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!
