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.
Anyone else a little partied out? The entire month of December was a ball! But now I feel like my body (especially my liver) is begging me to reset my eating habits. Today I started with my 5 week Paleo Plan. I’m easing into Paleo by starting this week off with no carbs and no alcohol but I’m still eating dairy. Let me explain what I mean by no carbs. I’m not counting fruits or vegetables, in my opinion, those are A-Ok. I’m referring to things like bread, pasta, crackers, chips, rice, tortillas, and all sweets. My hope is that by the end of the five weeks I feel better overall and that I continue to consume less carbs overall.
I’ve been collecting Paleo recipes on Pinterest for a while now (follow me here). I’ve also had a few guest posts in the past with some awesome Paleo recipes. (These are a favorite and totally on the menu plan this week.) But I’ve never done full Paleo. That meant I had to do my homework! So I planned out the week of meals including 5 different dinners, 2 soups for me for lunch, and a few breakfast options. I assumed that the fam would eat leftovers two of the nights.
Today was a pretty heavy prep day, but I know it will be worth it for the rest of the week. I’ve been sharing what I’m eating on Insta (follow me here @mamamomtourage). But here are the recipes from today.
