Last night Dan and I had dinner at a 5 - star restaurant.
Actually, it was really Courtney and Eric's house, but it felt like a 5 star restaurant because of how fancy and delicious the food was.
The best mussels and salmon I have had in my life. And I brought fruit for dessert. That I forgot to take a picture of. A definite fail in the fancy and blog department.
Their family has recently started eating a paleolithic diet. I had never heard of this way of eating until I started reading blogs.
In a nutshell, by following this diet you eat what cavemen ate. Yes on meat, eggs, fruit, veggies, and nuts. No on grains, dairy, or beans. That is the extent of my knowledge of the subject (other than what I read in this post - plus the great debate in the comments section) so of course I asked Courtney a million questions while eating dinner.
The concept is so interesting to me and I love that it focuses on fruits and veggies. I wonder if long distance / endurance athletes follow this? There would obviously be no carb loading - sadly that is what usually motivates me to run. What about coffee? Did cavemen have coffee? The list of questions goes on and on.
For now I have concluded that a life without bread and ice cream (in moderation) is not a life worth living, but am looking forward to learning more on the subject.
Eli likes me so much that he wanted to look like me.
Breakfast was another all bran-peach-Greek yogurt parfait. While updating my iPad. PS - I LOVE my Mac and am going to stand outside Best Buy and try to convert anyone on trying to buy a PC.
Lunch + snacks - leftovers from Monday's dinner. Cantaloupe and carrots.
Plus a little Trader Joe's popcorn to tide me over until dinner.
Thought for the day
