I started looking harder for Paleo recipes today, and I’m getting excited about what I’m finding. There are a lot of options for yummy food, and it’s good to focus on the yummy stuff i can have instead of the yummy stuff I want to have but can’t. 🙂 I didn’t quite have the time to implement any of the recipes yet, though, because it will require a little extra time searching for ingredients in the grocery store, and I didn’t have that much time.
Today went well. I’m still craving sugar. A big blueberry muffin sounds really good. Maybe because I was looking at the blueberry muffin and cherry pie flavored Larabars at the grocery store. They are Whole30 approved, with warning. The warning is to not use it like a candy bar because your brain doesn’t know the difference between a Larabar and a Snickers bar. The Larabars are pretty expensive, so I doubt I’ll be eating those like candy.
I was very tempted to cheat just a little today at lunch. I made a big salad with lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes. I don’t have any Paleo approved salad dressing on hand, and I usually need my dressing. I didn’t give in, though, and my salad was actually pretty good sans dressing. Who knew?
Breakfast: An omelet with tomatoes and avocado, a banana.
Lunch: Two hardboiled eggs and salad.
Snack: Some apple slices with my kids.
Supper: Chicken breast, green beans and red raspberries.
