Day Four


I am struggling with this cold, that I can’t shake. How this nose, can so steadily produce so much snot, is beyond me. I had to buy my third box of tissues this week!

I always crave sweet food when I am unwell, making the Challenge a bit tricky today. But I made it through. My guides – two big glasses of carrot, beetroot, clementine and ginger juice. They gave me the will to soldier on, and make my favourite slow-cooking beef stew. Even the kids dig it. It’s all about presentation.


I do have an actual recipe, but it tends to differ, depending on what is in the fridge. Thai beef tends to be pretty tough and sometimes its the only way to eat it, and a stew, is definitely, a great way to clean out the fridge. I am looking forward to heading out to the market for new supplies and inspiration tomorrow.

Jackie has been cooking up a storm tonight too. She is discovering her inner chef. I remember three years ago when we started, it had the same effect on my husband – another Paleo benefit for me! 🙂
