Dearest readers, I’m not sure if I deserve the attention, but I occasionally receive a request to share a realistic look at what my household eats during a typical day or week. Luckily for you curious ones, Shannon at Nourishing Days is running a series called “What do Real Food Bloggers Really Eat?” and I’m featured over there today.
Breakfast: Soaked oatmeal (with a little spelt flakes for phytase) with 1 spoonful of virgin coconut oil, cinnamon, raisins and raw milk
Lunch: beef barley soup with homemade stock, grassfed beef, soaked barley;
sourdough focaccia(no longer available), and a small glass of raw milk
Dinner: Sourdough pizza with store mozzarella cheese and pepperoni but homemade pizza sauce. Romaine lettuce salad (not even organic) with crispy sunflower seeds, organic carrot sticks, conventional brocoflower, with homemade garlic ranch dressings and pineapple slices.
Fascinating, yah? *sticks tongue out* If you want to see the rest of the week of my food journal, click here. I should probably keep another, more accurate recording to denote the added sugar that popped right back into my diet after Lent was over, though! I’m not always so “pure” in my realistic eating. I’ve been surprised to realize that I have quite often felt bloated and “off” in the gut since Easter, and I’m seriously thinking I need to crack down on myself even more on the junk…especially since I’m encouraging you all to cut back on the refined sugars this week!

***Note to email and feed subscribers: I’ve been teasing you all on the site this week about a big giveaway that I scored for you, to be announced at the end of the week. Here are the clues you may have missed if you don’t pop into the site: It will come in the summer for preserving the harvest, and it comes in black or white. Head over to Kitchen Stewardship to see today’s goofy hint if you want to play the trivia of the guessing game!
