Dipping my toes in Paleo
We are back home from our weekend trip to Orlando. As usual, we ate too much good food. No doubt in my mind that I gained at least 2 pounds.
Earlier today, I went for a run where I was looking to do at least 2.5 miles. I’m not sure if it was that I skipped dinner as I was stuffed from lunch.
Maybe, it was that breakfast consisted of airplane peanuts and chocolate chop cookie or the fact that I was still tired from the weekend. Or, or, that we waked up at 4:00am to catch our flight back home.
#runfail The run ended short at 1.5 miles as my legs felt like tree trunks. ¡No bueno! All I could think was that my diet needs a change because, obviously, what I’ve been doing is not working out.
As I say goodbye As we say goodbye to pasta, rice, beans and corn (staples in our kitchen) the plan is to start giving a try to vegetables that for one reason or the other I haven’t try yet. With that, we welcome the paleo diet.
Since this is going to be an adjustment week and I believe once I get a handle on my eating, everything in moderation is OK… the family will enjoy one reasonable cheat day on the weekends.
For breakfast, I see eggs, bacon and fruit in the future.
As for lunches and dinners, here are a few recipes I want to try:
Steak and cauliflower puree
