Paleo Plan Day 11

If there is one thing I eat more than anything else it’s soup.  Even on the hottest day of summer I’ve been known to order a bowl of soup.  The soup that I enjoy most of all is of the Spicy Thai variety.  My favorite version is the one at La Bou, I love it so much I made my own copycat version in a crockpot.  When I was meal planning I came across a Paleo Thai Chicken Zoodle Soup recipe and I couldn’t wait to try it!   All Day I Dream About Food is the genius foodie that came up with this delicious soup.

Paleo Plan Day 10

So, I’ve made it to Day 10.  Yay for me!  So far it has been a positive experience.  I always enjoy experimenting with different recipes and I really like getting the kiddos to eat more veggies.  Personally, I can’t say I’m sleeping better or feeling thinner, but I have noticed that I don’t seem to be getting “hangry” quite as often.  This plan is definitely keeping me properly fueled.  There have been a handful of times I wished I could drink some wine and I almost licked the frosting off a cupcake last week, but other than that I’m enjoying it!  (Not enjoying Sober January.)

Paleo Plan Day 9

The other day I was feeling a bit under the weather, so I didn’t make anything too fancy.  I skipped actual breakfast and drank some hot tea and had leftover soup for lunch.  Not sure what was going on with me, but one thing’s for sure: my body was fighting something.  Anyway, after an unproductive day, I decided I would make dinner as planned.  And I’m so glad I did.  It was delicious and comforting and actually pretty darn easy.

Paleo Plan Days 5-8

Over the weekend I ate a ton of leftovers, chicken breast, sweet potatoes, and nuts.  Those seem to be my go-tos.  I didn’t really want to cook anything too crazy and I wanted to clear out the fridge before I went shopping for the next week.  I did try out two new recipes and I’m featuring them here for you!

Paleo Plan Day 4

I’ve wrapped up my 4th day and I’m actually feeling pretty good about things.  The only thing I’ve missed is my wine, but other than that there has only been one other time where I contemplated licking the frosting off a cupcake.  So I’d say things are going well!  One disappointing thing is that I thought I would fall asleep faster and sleep sounder.  Unfortunately I’ve had a really hard time falling asleep the last two nights.  I’m hoping that changes.  Maybe my body is just getting used to not having carbs like bread and pasta?

Today’s menu included more leftovers and a new dinner dish.  If you’re looking for more Paleo recipes, follow me on Pinterest.

Paleo Plan Day 3

Wednesdays are always crazy busy mornings and days around our household.  Just lots of early morning running around and different pick up times and after school activity times.  Since I didn’t want that to get in the way of my Paleo Plan, I ate leftovers and picked up a healthy snack along the way to ensure I didn’t get derailed by hunger. Let’s talk leftovers, this plan I created includes lots of leftovers and things on hand to eat quick in case I’m starting to get “hungry”.  (Hard boiled eggs for example.) These are shortcuts that I know will work for me because I’m a total leftover lover.  So, when I made my lunch soups on Monday and Tuesday I portioned out the leftovers to make sure I had some on the fridge and some to put in the freezer.  Making full size recipes for just me means I have tons of leftovers for the rest of the few weeks.  This way I can cut down on costs, grocery store trips, and time.  Win win.

Paleo Plan Day 2

Today is my 2nd day not he Paleo Challenge and I feel great! crabby.  Yep, this afternoon the kids were acting a little bananas and I was starting to feel like a glass of wine would be my calgon moment, but I didn’t succumb.  Yet…  I mean they’re not asleep yet, so there’s still a chance.  

Anyway, I’d say my menu is actually going pretty well.  I loved yesterday and today’s food and I currently have leftovers in the fridge and in the freezer. Woohoo!  The first few days of any new plan are always the toughest, but the mistakes I’ve made before (like not having something around to eat in case I need to eat NOW) are not going to stop me this time.  

Here are the recipes I’ve been sharing on Insta (follow me here @mamamomtourage) today.
