I am feeling pretty happy today, I couldn’t help but weigh myself and I can’t believe I saw the scale go down. I’m finally out of the 90’s and into the 80’s, well 89.5kg to be exact. It’s still amazing that I was 107.1kg on my first day and to see it come down each week I couldn’t be happier. My husband said ok now don’t weigh for a week, he know’s me too well. I’m finally fitting into my older clothes, I wish I could buy more but I don’t want to spend money on something that will be too big in the next few months. So I’m going to make myself a few things, I’m in the process of setting up my own dressmaking business so it’s all good practice anyway.

I made the yummiest tasting “lasagne” last night for dinner, mike loves my lasagne but since there’s no pasta I used Pumpkin and zucchini instead, it was soo good I had leftovers for lunch today. Here’s the recipe if anyone is interested:

500gms Lamb Mince
1 Tin Tomatoes
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1/4 -1/2 cup Cream
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
Could add garlic and onion but I didn’t want reflux so I avoided it.

Let cook and simmer for 10 minutes or so the cream will thicken a little.

¼ Buttercup Pumpkin (precook it)
1 Large Zucchini
¾ cup Swiss Cheese
¾ cup Mozzarella Cheese
½ cup Parmesan Cheese

I layered the mince with the pumpkin very finely sliced, and the cheese. The top layer I used the zucchini and cheese on top. Bake in oven 200C for about 30-40 minutes. YUM!!
It’s not strictly primal/paleo but then I'm not that strict when it comes to cheese.


  1. Lamb mince! YUM! YOu just can't get lamb here in Holland, seriously - you have the choice of pork, beef and chicken. If you want anything more exotic you have to pay through the nose. *sigh*

  2. I know I love lamb mince, that's a shame you can't get it there, I guess all our exported lamb is expensive too.

  3. NZ Lamb rocks! Great idea for lasagne I really like it but have avoided it because of the pasta. Maybe eggplant would work too, or does it then become moussaka? Keep up the good work.

  4. I agree NZ Lamb is great, I tried it with eggplant and it was bascially moussaka but still yummy, I found it held together better with pumpkin tho :)
