  1. Late night dinner options

    Does anyone have ideas for a meal that I can eat late (like at 11) but my husband could get into around normal dinner time? I'm going to a show tonight and I'll likely avoid the goodies that are put out so I'll be hungry when I get home but my husband will be home all night. Instead of us both fending for ourselves I'd rather prep something in advance that we could just eat separately. In the past I'd just grab frozen burritos or TV dinner but I'm trying to do this healthy any ideas?
  2. Home stretch and extinction strikes

    Haha yes! I did my 30 in January and the last weekend I was on I had a show I had been preparing a month for that went so well and everyone was drinking wine and eating chocolate and I felt like pulling out my hair and running into walls. It really showed me that food is definitely a "reward" for me. Anyway, I daydreamed about chocolate for days after. I feel for ya!
  3. Definitely not me but if you are comparing a sugar addiction to alcohol think about how bad the sugar addiction is for us all, especially since generally speaking, most of us have had our sugar addiction since we were old enough to ask for it. It's an incredibly difficult habit to break. I was proud of myself for going 30 days without it but I craved it almost every day! Yikes!
  4. Please Critique My Meals/Portions

    It's always reassuring to see meals like yours because I too see these itty bitty meals and wonder about mine too from time to time.
  5. Portions for Stewing Meat + ? Re: Meat Consumption

    Thanks, Kirsteen. It turned out okay. I need more experience cooking meat though. It was kind of chewy. Lol
  6. Portions for Stewing Meat + ? Re: Meat Consumption

    Wow, okay. I actually did end up splitting it and it seemed like a pretty small (but satisfying dinner) so I guess I'm doing okay. So much unlearning to do!
  7. Hi All, I'm new to eating meat and I'm making this recipe: http://paleoinpdx.com/2012/11/16/simple-supper-friday-butter-beef-stew/ I'm using 1lb of stewing beef from the local farm-raised , hormone free butcher shop so I don't know if it's lean, how many calories, fat etc. Between two people, how much of this would you eat? We're an active, hungry couple. Any help would be appreciated. On a bit of a side note I'll just add my other question to this post. Is it really okay to eat meat so often? How many times a week do you eat beef, for example? Lately I've been eating it 2-3 times because I haven't eaten meat in 12 or 13 years and I actually like it. I've also taken a pretty strong liking for wild boar but that's pretty expensive! I'm worried about health but also, let's be honest here, I don't want to gain weight. Thoughts, reassurances?
  8. I did the Whole30 on fish on eggs. It's definitely possible!
  9. How long does an almost 5+ pound roast last you? Do you keep it in the fridge or the freezer?
  10. Food for Energy and Focus

    I dance so it's not for endurance, more for mental clarity, focus and a boost of energy without the sugary stuff I used to turn to!
  11. Is there any food that you would swear by to give energy and focus? Something small you would eat one hour or so before a competition or performance for a boost of sorts but not something that would make you feel full?
  12. My poor nails!!

    During my 30 my nails went down to the bed too. I *have * a dishwasher and I wash a ton of dishes to keep up. I've been following a 4 day on and 3 day off since I finished my Whole30 on Feb 2nd and my nails have been growing back stronger.
  13. Too much food?

    I get so happy when I see others eating similarly to my meal plan and then seeing a mod confirm that it's correct. I always feel like I'm eating too much. It feels like Thanksgiving everyday!
  14. Difficulty staying motivated

    I had been veg for 12 or 13 years and tried (red) meat for the first time last week. I'm still having a hard time dealing dealing with the idea that eating meat often is unhealthy and fattening.
  15. New to Meat: Wild Boar Question

    That's great, actually. I was hoping it was about as long as that.
