Ted's first snow!
Slept in late after being woken up twice during the night - once by our son to tell us Dad had left the lights on the car and once by Ted who wanted to know we were still there - and a pee! To the first disturbance, Michael shouted "it's fine, it's parking lights" and turned over and went back to sleep. To the second, I got up and let Ted out - Oh and guess who is currently waiting in for the AA to fix a flat battery on the car....
Meanwhile, when I finally did get up we cooked a lovely slow breakfast of low carb bagels, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. We shared the Sunday papers and I got to check out the the Christmas gift guides, buckling slightly under the cost of it all. Noticed too that face masks are making a come back if you are out shopping however - not if you are out in any other enclosed space having fun? Anyone else confused? What's the difference?
Later, we cooked a tray bake roast dinner, thinking ahead to Christmas - and all the delicious add-ons we can find and still keep on track with this paleo way of eating. Let's talk paleo stuffing balls. These are possible on a paelo diet but the chestnuts and cranberries to add to them have a high carb count and I decided to wait until Christmas to try out my new recipe.
Instead we added our Primal Cut gluten free Pigs in Blankets, roast tatties and carrots for Michael and a tray of roasted green leafy veg to share:
If you are interested in which are the best veg to eat on a low carb and keto diet, here is a helpful video from the guys at Diet Doctor :
We also ate a portion of mixed berries each with a tablespoon fo balsamic vinegar. Yum. We both spent the afternoon writing and then walking with Ted in the snow. Such joy to see snow through the innocent eyes of a pup! Later, on a second walk though, the fun seemed less so as the snow had already turned to hard ice and was treacherous to walk out on! Roll on tomorrow, its going to be fun :(
