Kristin + Corey Paleo Log Blog

March 20, Day 20

I startled awake at 6am, which is super insane, because we were up well past midnight and there was no real reason for me to be up before 7 (my son’s Dad was dropping him off at 7am)

So I put on a load of laundry and set to work baking coconut blueberry muffins.

Caveat: these sound better than they tasted, and I was a bit disappointed.  They were sweet and tasty, but too dense and, as Corey said they “suck all the moisture out of your mouth)

Next time I’d add more applesauce and maybe some almond flour instead of pure coconut flour.  I used:

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp almond extract

1/2 cup apple sauce

1/4 cup plain almond milk

1 mashed banana

1 cup frozen blueberries, dusted in coconut flour (to prevent blue bleeding into the berries)

Mix all ingredients in bowl, blueberries last, and place in muffin tin.  Makes about 12 big muffins.

We went to the 10am Crossfit workout, my back still a bit sore but not noticeably. The workout was “Chuck Norris”, a killer of a workout with a long list of excruciating exercises done 50 in a row.  I modified knees to elbows to a v-sit, which sent pangs of pain up my back until I stopped lifting my head as much.  The jump pull ups were also killer on the back, but everything else was kosher.

We were starving when we came home:

12 noon, brunch: Chicken avocado omelette with mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and garlic

I had a few dates as snacks, and an americano mid afternoon, but saved my appetite as we were making dinner for Corey’s parents:

7PM, Dinner: Seared Ahi Tuna with Garlic Lemon Asparagus on fresh Spinach, with Sundried Tomato Onion Dip

Corey bought some fresh ahi tuna steaks at the Dundarave Fish Market last night.  They were pricey (40 bucks for 2 thick steaks) but they fed four of us well and they were so perfect on their own, all they needed was a tiny bit of pepper and a little bit of heat.  The tomato dip has become a staple and is always delicious.

We’re moving into our final week of this!  I am really amazed at the differences in my body.

Today at the gym, my hernia was rubbing against my shirt and driving me insane as usual so I took off my tank top (had a sports bra underneath) and when I was doing my Good Mornings, I could clearly see my abs, defined and pretty void of puffiness of any kind.  This has never occured before.  I have to credit the diet, because I’m not doing much different, activity wise.

I’m with Corey now, I think.  I’ll continue this way of eating.  It’s pretty smart.

(PS I also made dessert for everyone tonight – banana coconut pudding with raspberries and banana slices.  I used the rest of the coconut muffins crumbled on the bottom, it was pretty rad. )

That tuna looks amazing! Thanks for the food porn. Oh, and glad to see you back at (edited KD. Want to keep this place separate from there). Will you keep this blog going after the challenge is over?

Kathy, I think I might keep it going when we come up with a killer new recipe (ie tonight we made butter chicken on squash (without butter, without cream!) and it was rad. But otherwise…not everyday. It’s pretty time consuming, and there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

(Oops, sorry about the reference!) I figured you wouldn’t keep up with the daily food diary but I’m glad it won’t die completely. I linked here in my blog (
Looking forward to more recipes!
