LUNCH Grass Fed Beef Taco Bowl • Purple Cabbage • Spinach • Fresh Salsa • Jalapeños • Pumpkin + Sunflower Seeds • Lime • Seeded . . . It’s been a busy day. Did a great Talking All Things Keto with @ketocounterculture and then just went and bought new linen for my bed, I’m buying a new gas lift bed with storage underneath and the other day I grabbed a new wall cupboard and breakfast bench from IKEA as a house warming to ME!!! Not to mention there’s NO STORAGE IN MY HOUSE!!! . . Lucky I love putting furniture together!!! No I really do 😍 . . . . . . . . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nurturenottorture #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #hashimotos #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating #eggfree #porkfree #tunafree

BREAKFAST Wild Atlantic Salmon • Avocado • Pickled Ginger • Pumpkin & Sunflower Seeds • Butter Lettuce . . So I’m back on the @medicalmedium recommendation of no eggs, no pork and no tuna. . . I’ve been enjoying eggs lately and every time I decide to eliminate something from my diet I ALWAYS get stymied about what to eat next... despite the fact I ate like this for months!!! . . But I’ve learned that it’s only passing and rather than focusing on what I can’t eat I turn all my attention to what I can and then this happened! . . I pimped up the salmon by adding fresh dill, spring onion and a Seeded Mustard Vinaigrette . . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nurturenottorture #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #hashimotos #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating #eggfree #porkfree #tunafree

LUNCH I’m back on to my @medicalmedium #heavymetaldetoxsmoothie but I make it low carb because last time it kicked me out of ketosis and I felt like ass and for me it’s all about honoring my body where it’s at to feel my best. . . Low Carb Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie 1 cup Wild Blueberries 50g Banana 1 cup Coriander 1 tsp Barley Grass Juice Powder 1 tsp Hawaiian Spirulina 1 tbs Atlantic Dulce 1/8 Orange 1 cup Water Ice . . . Blend all together and enjoy! . . . . . It’s a faction of the fruit that the original recipe calls for but I figure close enough is good enough. . . The other thing I also noticed was the difference between using normal blueberries vs. the wild ones... the color!!! . . The wild berries once blended are a maroon color and the normal ones and end up green from the Spirulina... very interesting! . . . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nurturenottorture #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #hashimotos #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

LUNCH My favorite @vicgardens food court meal from @sushihub . . Tasmanian Salmon Salad and I ask for ginger, wasabi and mayonnaise. . .

BREAKFAST Bacon • Gooey Eggs • Spinach • Seeds . . Soooooo after listening to @medicalmedium talk on #breastimplantillness (link in my stories) and just how bad eggs, pork and dairy are for #biisurvivor and those suffering from #ebv I’ve decided that I’m cutting them out again except for a bit of occasional homemade mayonnaise . . . . The way he explains the negative impacts they have on feeding the virus and porks pressure on the liver it just feels like the right thing to do. . . . I’m also going to reintroduce my heavy metal detox smoothies . . I’ve come so far... why not challenge myself to see just how healthy I can get . . . . . . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nurturenottorture #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #hashimotos #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

Creamy Wasabi Dressing 1 tbsp Homemade Mayonnaise 1 tbsp White Balsamic Vinegar 1 tsp Wasabi 1 tsp Sesame Seeds Shake it all up in a jar and you’re good to go! . .

DINNER Grass Fed Minute Steak • Wombok + Purple Cabbage Salad • Fried Onions • Lazy Dairy Free Ranch + Homemade Mayonnaise + @mingleseasoning Ranch + White Balsamic Vinegar . . . Okay from memory I paid about $2.50 for half a Wombok and it’s still gooooooing!!! . . If you’re looking for a low cost, versatile low carb veggie you have to get on to it! . . It’s great raw or cooked and it whips up into great Asian inspired, or western dishes like this 👌🏻🍃 . . . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nurturenottorture #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #hashimotos #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

LUNCH Salad Mix of Purple Cabbage + Wombok + Spinach • Wild Atlantic Salmon with Homemade Mayonnaise + Dill + Chives + Capers • 1/4 Avocado • Cherry Tomatoes • Jalapeños • Seeds • Seeded Mustard Vinaigrette . . This meal marks the last of my 7-day budget challenge. I spent $96 on groceries and have made 17 meals. . . That brings my average to $96 / 17 = $5.65 per meal and I still have food left to get through the rest of the week. . . I did use some pantry and freezer stash but even if I added that into cost it would still be around $110 increasing each meal by $1. . . It just goes to show this WOE doesn’t have to be expensive and I still bought free range and organic meats and eggs and mostly all organic veggies. . . If you want to see what I bought just look for my video post from 7-days ago. And you can see all my meals 👌🏻🍃 . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nurturenottorture #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #hashimotos #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating #ketoonabudget

It’s my 8-month BREASTAVERSARY & this month I wanted to focus on 3 little things that are actually really BIG things that just bring me joy to have those toxic bags out of me which MY body hated... I know some women are fine but I was not! . . First up is I can run up the stairs at work again. Before my explant I feared the stairs because I was suffering so much body & joint pain & not to mention the fatigue. . . I had to hold the rail & slowly make my way up like an old lady but not anymore... now I can just whisk up them & trust me even though I’ve been able to do this for months I still don’t take it for granted. . . 2. Just when I think it’s all gone I lose more inflammation. Even yesterday I noticed again that I’d lost more. . . I’ve lost over 7kg/15.4lbs since my surgery & I’d say that’s majority inflammation & as my body continues to clean out the chemicals that were leaking into my body without a rupture for 7-years, the more that disappears & I’m so grateful because without getting to the root cause there was no way I could lose weight before, despite how much I tried... & boy did I try!!! . . 3. I’m moving back to my home in the city because I’m ready to live again. . . 18-months ago I escaped to my family beach house 1.5 hours away because I just couldn’t keep up with my life & withdrew socially. . . I didn’t know I had #breastimplantillness at the time, that diagnosis was still 6-months away but I just knew I wanted to escape because I was in so much pain and exhausted all the time & I could no longer sustain going out 3-4 nights a week. . . But you can’t tell your friends u don’t want to see them (because u do, u just physically can’t) but u can move away. . . But now I feel alive again, I’m back to my old self and I can’t wait to move back next week! . . If you have implants & are continually struggling with unexplainable health symptoms I recommend you connect with @breast_implant_illness & join the private Facebook page where over 50k woman share their stories . . Breast Implant Illness isn’t medically recognized so unfortunately your doctor won’t help. We're on our own ladies & I’m here for you 🦋
