What a weekend. We are all now on day three of this Paleo adventure. I hope everyone is holding up well! This weekend was a huge test. I spent the weekend with my family and that means we went out to eat every single meal. If you want to know how to eat Paleo while not at home I am now and expert. Here is a brief rundown:
Chicken Grill Salad
No cheese or croutons
Water with lemon
Garden salad with olive oil and a teeny tiny bit of vinegar. (No croutons)
Wood grilled salmon
Steamed crab legs
NO cheddar biscuits even though they were calling to me the entire meal
LushBerries: The "new" Orange Tree. If you are ever in Edmond you must go to Orange Tree. This would be of course for an "open" meal. :)
Cup full of kiwi, blackberries, raspberries, honeydew melon and slivered almonds. No Yogurt. :(
Walt's Champagne Chicken Salad - this salad is AWESOME.
Chicken, pineapple, strawberries, dates, sunflower seeds and olive oil. YUM.
I omitted feta cheese or croutons and added avocado.
This kept me full for hours.
Side salad with olive oil
Grilled chicken breast
Green beans - I know green beans are not technically a veggie, but as I have read they are "more green than bean" so when you have no other choice choose green beans.
I'm snacking on almonds, walnuts, grapes, carrots and Larabars. I'm feeling full. I notice out of habit I try to reach for Kody's Diet Dr. Pepper or crackers on the table. It is automatic. I don't even think, I just reach. This will take time to get over, but so far so good! I'm feeling awesome.
What were your struggles this weekend? What foods did you discover that you keep you full? Did anything surprise you? Did anyone already fall victim the the temptation to cheat?
Try mixing blueberries and walnuts together with your breakfast. It is a great boost in the morning!
