Healthy Living = My body is my temple

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:

Lettuce wraps

Salmon patties

Steak and cauliflower puree

Do you follow a paleo lifestyle or do you prefer a different diet?

    I do Weight Watchers, but am interested to follow along and see how your Paleo journey goes.

      Abby, I did WW many moons ago and didn’t use it like I should had. Maybe I should give it another try.

    I like some paleo recipes, but it’s not the right “fit” of a diet for me. I know some people have had amazing results with it!

      So far I’m eating 80% paleo and so far it’s working. Not as easy as I thought but we’ll see how it goes.
