As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been trying out Paleo for the last few weeks. So far, so good. I expected it to be easy but lemme tell you, more things have sugar and gluten in them than you think. So far, reducing my fruit intake when all this delicious fruit is in season has been the most difficult but definitely do-able. I’m really enjoying the extra energy I have and i’m liking the way I feel without dairy, grains and sugar. In one way, I have really found the whole transition easy as I didn’t really eat these things anyway but at the same time, it has definitely taken a little adjustment.
The hardest part about this whole change has been making sure I have food prepared and with me. I’m definitely trying to get better at preparing in advance. Since I work in a kitchen owned by my dad, I figured it would be easy to grab things throughout the day. That part is doable but when I get home, I realize I have nothing to eat! This week I roasted some sweet potatoes to have for after workouts and made some carrot fries to eat throughout the day.
I’m breaking it down like Jenn this week.
Breakfasts: Mostly eggs and a vegetable. I’m loving tomatoes from our home garden and sauteed spinach when I have it.
Lunch: Burgers, steak, grilled chicken. These vary. I love me a burger smothered with onions and peppers though. Throw on a side of carrot fries and this meal is perfection.
Snacks: Carrot sticks, almond butter on some celery, a few nuts, a few slices of chicken. It depends on the day.
Dinner: Similar to lunches.
Dessert: I discovered I can make some Paleo desserts so, this chocolate pudding made it’s way into my fridge last night. Delicious.
oh. and the other night, this. glorious dairy free ice cream without refined sugar.
