Grilled Eggplant Salad

If you have been following me on instagram you would know that I have started a new food regime. I am going to take this a week at a time by following the paleo diet during the weekdays and maybe go a little crazy during the weekends.

It would be the best if I could do the proper whole30 like last year again but it will be impossible with a baby. I can’t be too rigid with my food choices at the moment because one, I am providing nourishment to another human being and two ,taking care of that human being doesn’t let me have a schedule.Oh and there is a three..On days when he is cranky i can’t even enter the kitchen let alone eat properly planned paleo approved meals so ladies and gentleman it’s going to be called weekday paleoish diet.

My Lunch-Salad+Protien+Emperor Grapes for dessert

Though this is a very very modified version of paleo I will try and  stick to healthy food and not twist the paleo rules and make almond flour coconut sugar desserts cause that’s not going to do me any good.My main aim is to lose the post pregnancy food rampage weight.

Feel free to modify the recipe and do let me know if you think some other dressing works better with this combination.
