Hey bees! I started my Paleo quest on Monday so I am on Day 3 🙂 I had to do some research and I know there is still a lot that I need to learn about what is allowed and what is not. So, I am sure I have eaten some things I shouldn’t have. My goal is to slowly become strictly paleo as I learn more. I have not tried anything too different yet…Monday and Tuesday I had a training at work and breakfast and lunch were catered, I was WORRIED to say the least and in retrospect I should have packed my food, lesson learned! Haha…it went ok though! Here is what I have eaten the last few days:
Monday, Day 1: Breakfast-Fruit (cantelope, berries, pineapple), unsalted cashews and almonds, and coconut water. I also drank 64 oz of water throughout the work day training.
Lunch-salad (greens, strawberries, tomato, cucumber) & tortilla soup (diced chicken breast, green chilis, onions, broth-DID NOT add the optional tortilla strips-yay me! LOL! More water…
Dinner-grilled salmon with lemon, garlic, and pepper, bacon wrapped asparagus, mixed berries
Tuesday, Day 2: Breakfast-2 scrambled eggs, 1 turkey sausage patty, cantelope, pineapple
Lunch-grilled chicken breast, tomato slices, grilled onions & green pepper, lettuce…had to make due with the grilled chicken sandwhich buffet at the training (no chips or bun…lol)
Dinner-turkey burger, no bun, with avocado and tomoato, grilled zucchini & onion, green grapes
Today: Breakfast-mixed berries & banana with sliced almonds in coconut milk…almost like cereal but no cereal lol
I have worked out all three days in the morning before work-no change there as I have always done that anyway. I do think that I have more energy and I am sleeping better too…this may be just in my head but I say who cares…I feel good! I don’t feel bloated and lazy which was the point right! Another point to make, I don’t feel hungry at all…lastnight at dinner I almost didn’t want to eat but I knew that i should since I had lifted weights and did cardio.
Paleo people, please analyze what I ate and tell me what I need to add or cut…I think the fruit can be lowered but other than that I am not sure…
Thanks lovely Bees!
