Paleo Strawberry Kiwi Ice Cream

Okay, my eating has been atrocious lately and the scale is a good reminder each morning:). Not tracking what I've eaten today b/c it's horribly bad, but I did make some paleo ice cream yesterday to help with my ice cream/sweet cravings in the evenings. It's super easy, took a little from various recipes on the web.

1 quart of strawberries (which is what, 2c. sliced roughly?)
1 can coconut milk
3 kiwis
1/4c. raw honey (or to taste)
1tsp. vanilla extract (or a vanilla bean would be better)

Puree all ingredients together in a blender.
Add to ice cream maker and churn for 30 minutes or so.

It comes out more as a sorbet type dessert, but it is still very delicious and refreshing!

I'll try to remember to post some pics today. It's a very pretty pink color as well!

EDIT: Well, when I went to eat some more of this last night, it was FROZEN SOLID. So you might need to heat it up a bit in the microwave before you'll be able to scoop it out like ice cream (otherwise it would be more of the consistency of shaved ice). But it was delicious just a little bit melted.

I think I might be allergic to celery now. I had a horrible reaction a few hours after eating it yesterday. Hopefully this is just a pregnancy thing b/c I love celery!

Seriously stuffed yesterday and I didn't even eat all that much! What a nice feeling. Especially since with all the processed/carb-heavy stuff I've been eating lately, I'm usually continuously hungry in the evenings.

Per suggestions from a commenter, I am not going to track calories on here anymore, but instead just work at eating as much healthy food as I want. It will definitely be a work in progress and I'm not giving up dairy, but hopefully this new tactic will allow me to relax a bit and keep the pregnancy weight gain in check.

I'm currently reading "The Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson of Mark's Daily Apple, so I hope to incorporate more of this lifestyle and food going forward.

Meal Plan
B - 12oz. milk, carrot/celery/almond salad, 2 HB eggs
S - 20oz. coke (so much for giving this up!), Oikos Blueberry yogurt
L - 2 celery stalks w/PB, 2 small chicken thighs
S - 1 cheese stick, 1.5c. cantaloupe
D - MDA Stuffed Peppers, minus the green pepper (made the filling into patties - total of 1.5c.), 1 cheese stick

Okay, so my weight gain has been more than I had anticipated, so I'm going to try to get stricter with my diet. Had a bit of a wake-up call this morning when I stepped on the scale and it has me at 12lbs. up from my pre-pregnancy weight and I want to only be at about 8lbs. at this point.

Meal Plan
B - 12oz. milk (2%), 1/2 can tuna (w/ 1/2tbs. mayo, 1tsp. mustard), 1 whole wheat english muffin
S - 2c. green & red grapes
L - 2 roasted chicken wings, blueberry greek yogurt (Oikos), 12 almonds
S - 2 cheese sticks, 1c. roasted garbanzo beans (olive oil, salt, cajun seasoning), 4 squares 60% chocolate, a few dried apple pieces
D - Jalapeno hamburger patty (2 mini w/2tbs. steak sauce), braised cabbage w/bacon (cooked with lemon juice, honey, chicken stock), 4oz. pineapple OJ

My main pitfall lately (other than soda & eating out) has been eating in the evenings, for some reason I just get RAVENOUS around dinner-time and it carries over into a later evening snack (that is usually very unhealthy).

Well, went a bit outside my meal "plan" a bit. Super hungry around 4-5pm, so that's when all the snacking happened. I need to figure out a way to get more calories without having a ridiculous amount of carbs. This has been my biggest challenge. From various websites, it looks like I need to be getting between 2,100 - 2,400 calories a day, but I can only afford to eat so much meat. I guess I could add in nuts, but for some reason they are NOT AT ALL appealing right now.

Hello extra 6lbs.:) I'm up from my pre-pregnancy weight by 6lbs. Which is okay, I think (everything is conflicting on how much to gain when, so I'm just kind of giving up on that one).

I've been eating like a bad person lately, but I really want to start to focus again. I feel really great (and have an appetite to match!) so there's no excuse for eating breakfast cereal like I have been.

Well, the plan was to do well today... didn't quite make it there!

It's funny, on the website where I track my food, it shows my carbs as only being 73% of my recommended daily allowance. And my protein level is OFF THE CHARTS:). I wish I could change it b/c it irritates me to look at the red numbers for the protein and fat when really, I consider them low! Oh well:).

Not going to post for today, I started the day with a slice of cookie cake. And dinner tonight with Mom is going to be a cheat meal of mac'n'cheese & a milkshake. It's what I've been craving and I refuse to feel guilty about it.... okay, maybe a little:).

Over on calories, WAY over on carbs. And tomorrow is my 28th birthday, so I should eat clean (after the binge today), but I probably won't.

Good news is that I'm sharing the cookie cake with my co-workers, so it won't tempt me for much longer:).
