Paleo Reset Day 17

Winter has brought with it cold, short days and much reduced light. During each of these busy bake days, I have watched the weather from the kitchen window and it's felt unremittingly overcast, dark grey. It's enough to make even the best of us feel gloomy and the news seems to match the mood with talk of tighter lock downs in the run up to Christmas. Everything, even nature seems to have lost a bit of its sparkle. So the Christmas lights have gone up in the front windows at our house, to bring a little bit of the magic and sparkle back. How do you tackle these dark days?

The poet Emily Dickinson wrote:

"The sky is low, the clouds are mean,

A travelling flake of snow

Across a barn or though a rut

Debates if it will go.

A narrow wind complains all day

How some one treated him;

Nature, like us is sometimes caught

Without her diadem"

Walking Ted and squelching across the mud filled paths behind our house, there are still signs of life to behold. I am especially looking out for the bright red holly berries to decorate our Christmas door wreath, for ivy and maybe just may be some mistletoe! The poem has humour amongst the darkness and reminds me that there are opportunities to lighten up a bit too. We all have darker days especially at this time of year, even Mother Nature, it's entirely natural but guess what? Its transient too!

Eating this paleo diet has really helped me find clarity and focus, time to breathe and write again. That's another plus I never envisaged when I started.

But enough of that! The food, what did we eat today? Bake days are always tricky but we chose two simple meals and a protein shake and we kept on track again despite the challenges!

Paleo Rest Day 17 Summary

Breakfast: Protein Shake, C8, Floradix and Dirtea coffee

Lunch: Quick Chicken Curry

Supper: Keto Burgers, Avocado and Salad, Mayo

Some of us of course had busier days than others!

Enjoy your evening!
