Early Update, Late Weigh In

This week has been pretty good so far. I tracked calories on two days (1271, 1567) and have been out working in the yard each day. Been busy working on taxes and other stuff. I've been eating lots of hard boiled Easter eggs (deviled) and too much ham (cured, Costco, not natural), straying a bit from the real purpose and spirit of AIP. It's more like a basic elimination diet than a healing diet at this point, but I am okay with that. I think I will get the information I need from doing this, and also will continue a lot of the AIP habits without the strictness. I'm still gluten free, grain free (except corn), bean/soy free, nut/seed free, and nightshade free. I eat lower carb and sugar and am feeling good. I did cut back on dairy this week too. I did eat pie for breakfast a few times! It was AIP pie though, and so good! I was going to make coconut cream pie for Easter but instead made Key lime, from the AIP cookbook I got recently:

AIP autoimmune key lime pie recipe

It's full of nutrients from coconut, avocado, freshly squeezed lime juice, and gelatin. Everyone liked it! Even my sons who usually think my AIP stuff is too bland and not sweet enough enjoyed this one.

I won't be here for a weigh-in this weekend, since I'm taking my daughter out of town on a little 3-day trip (leaving tomorrow). We didn't get away for spring break so this will be nice! I will weigh on Monday and hope there isn't a gain.

See you next week!

Who ever thought to put avocado in a pie to make it green? I have to try it! Have a fun time on your trip!

Take Paleo snacks with you for the trip. Beef jerky, baked chicken in a cooler, raw veggies cut up, a piece of fruit. That's enough for a day. You can come back lighter if you watch your intake. Have a fun time!
