Day 5 & 6: Travel is Tricky

Eating Paleo 31 DaysI got home too late last night to post about Day 5, but I might just combine all of the weekend posts. I try not to spend a ton of time online on the weekends, so it will make more sense to combine the posts. I’m sure you won’t mind.

Day 5 was spent out of town, traveling with my family. We spent Friday night in a hotel and Saturday driving along the Mississippi River to explore and catch some fall color. We had a great time, but it made eating kind of tricky. We had free breakfast at our hotel, which, if you’ve ever had hotel breakfasts, is high on grains. This trip is a tradition thing for our family, and we traditionally pick up sub sandwiches for a picnic lunch and have pizza or fast food for supper. So, I had to really plan ahead and prepare some food that I could eat.

First, and update from Day 4. I posted in our car before eating supper, and it was pretty yummy, so I had to share. I made a Paleo Chicken Salad from Amee’s Savory Dish. That required making Paleo mayo, which I followed the recipe and video from The Clothes Make the Girl. The chicken salad was very tasty, and worked great for my supper on Friday night.

Now back to Saturday:

Breakfast: (At the hotel) Turkey sausage, hard boiled eggs and a banana.

Lunch: The rest of the chicken salad, lettuce salad, olives, carrots and fruit.


Supper: I grazed a lot on snacks for supper. The rest of the family had drive-thru, and I ate some almonds, raisins, a Larabar, apples and hard boiled egg.

Today, Sunday, was a little rushed in the morning as we tried to get to church. Then, I was pretty crabby and tired, although I don’t feel like I’m crazy craving sugar and bread as bad as before. They still sound really yummy, of course, but the “oh-my-word-I-really-want-some-sugary-bready-something” feelings have calmed down. I had to laugh as I read my kindergarten daughter’s library book tonight. I just can’t escape the forbidden foods. 😉


Breakfast: Larabar (I might be addicted to those) and a banana.

Lunch: Chicken breast, salad, olives and grapes.

Supper: Hard boiled eggs and apples. We were rushing to get out the door again, so I need to eat a bit more before I go to bed, I think.
