Meatloaf and Mash

Dinner last night was delicious. I made Meatloaf with Creamy Roast Pumpkin / Cauliflower Mash and Steamed Broccoli Florets.

20140225-173628.jpg I began by browning 100g diced streaky bacon in loads of grass fed butter. Next I added one finely chopped large brown onion and sautéed until translucent. One large grated carrot went in next along with 1 tablespoon of whole grain mustard, mixed herbs, and a good screw of black pepper.

20140225-173450.jpg Once all that had cooked down nice I set it aside to cool while I prepared my pumpkin.

One quarter of organic kent pumpkin peeled, chopped & sprinkled with salt, pepper & smoked paprika and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

I placed it on a lined tray and into a 200°C oven to roast.

I then took my cooled ingredients for the meat loaf and combined them with 1 egg, 1kg organic beef mince and 1/2 cup of almond meal. Once combined this went into a loaf tin and in the oven with the pumpkin.

20140225-173544.jpg When the meat loaf was nearly finished I removed the pumpkin from the oven, boiled a full head of cauliflower until tender, drained and then mashed the two together with my stick blender and loads more butter.

The mash was so super creamy no sauce was required. Yummy!!!

One for the Road

This morning I opted for an extra ten minutes in bed and so breakfast needed to be found on my first break for the day. I went for a big breaky, minus hash brown & toast and swapped the sausage for a 100% beef patty. Straight forward enough? It took no less than three wait staff to work out exactly how to process this order which they ended up calling a works burger minus the bun!? LOL

20140215-091737.jpg I then headed over to the coffee counter where I requested a large iced americano with whipped cream... This too was met with confusion and also gathered a crowd of on lookers to check out the freak show with his wacky drink order.

I must point out here in Central Queensland coffee orders don't get too exotic. In fact there is no distinguishable difference up here between a Latte, Cappuccino or a Flat White.

Anyway, in the end I got exactly what I was after and made quite an impression in the process.

Love the LCHF food order mods.

Om Nom Nom

20140208-201739.jpgHad a delicious lunch today at Ribs and Rumps. My Rib Eye Steak came with baked chat potatoes or fries. I got the potatoes with sour cream and added a side of garden fresh veggies with butter. It was sooooo good!

Last year I could easily have put away 10 chat potatoes with one meal (potatoes and rice have always been my weakness) however today I only ate one and was so full and satisfied.

It will be interesting to see if there's any change in my ketones or weight loss this week after my spudventure :)

Next weigh-in coming Monday morning.....
