I do on and off. I try and incorporate a lot of banting principles into our eating. For instance, we only do full cream everything, no low fat anything. I only use coconut oil to cook, no sugar, only xylitol, bake my own breads, lots of cauli pizzas etc.
We eat eggs every single morning. Either scrambled in coc oil with turmeric or cooked. Kids get iced tea as drinks - I either make myself or buy.
I also recently started fermenting kombucha. Okay, but that's another story, hahaa!
I am banting strictly, and hubby and LG to a degree. Baby is still breastfeeding. As with Jana, we no longer buy anything low fat and we no longer use any margarine or sunflower oil. Only Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Butter.
I don't believe in cutting out carbs and starchy veggies for LG, she and hubby still have those, but sadly no potatoes for me.
I do like the fact that we don't eat any processed foods anymore.
I am enjoying it, much more sustainable than any eating plan I have been on before.
Jana, wow, fermenting kombucha! Thas impressive
I have not baked a bread in a few weeks, now that you mention it. I will bake one tonight, the coconut bread is delicious!
Karmie, I also give my children carbs and off course fruit. I try and do it the clean way, low in gluten, rather veggies than empty carbs but some days I do resort to a quick and easy Woolies meal. There's just not time to make food all day long.
However, we always have biltong and droewors for kids to snack on. Nuts, etc.
So their lunch boxes look like this: droewors or biltong, nuts, provita or wholegrain or rye bread with bovril and butter, dried fruit or a banana. That's my go-to lunch box.
What do you girls eat every day? Like, lunch and dinner?
Jana, I also follow that philosophy, but I am just as guilty of resorting to woolies meals now and again But I dont think they are that bad.
We are very lucky, as our daymother/aupair cooks for us, she is now a banting expert!
I only eat two meals a day, as I do not get hungry enough for breakfast when I am banting correctly. I typically have breakfact/lunch at around 11:00/12:00. This is typically leftovers from the previous night's supper.
Some examples of what we eat is lamb ribs with roast pumpkin and broccoli, chicken (skin on) cooked in cream with peppers over baby marrow ribbons or cottage pie made with bacon and mince topped with cauli-mash.
Our LG eats what we eat, plus she will have some fruit after a meal and we also give her potatoes and corn on the cob.
Jo.Don, you can find the recipe for coconut bread on the Real Meal Revolution's website, and you can make french toast with it as well
