It’s the second full day of becoming Paleo. Not a whole lot of observations yet other than 1) Paleo lunch ideas have been difficult to think up and 2) I am surprisingly satisfied! I’m not hungry at all–in fact I am MORE satisfied then when I was eating breads and carb fillers. I’m a nursing mom with a high metabolism so this is really exciting–it feels great!
Today I think I finally realized what a Paleo lunch might look like. I think salad is a great carrier for left overs. I made a salad consisting of lettuce, tomatoes, sliced grilled chicken (I cheated and bought this pre-made–but I made sure it was pure natural chicken with only spices no extra ingredients), left over sweet potatoes fried in coconut oil, cashews and red peppers. It was delightful.
For the kids, I made them plates of snap peas, celery, salad, the fried sweet potatoes and hot dogs (again, I cheated with these for the kids but made sure they were all natural with no fillers). They ate every bite–it was truly amazing.
For Paleo baby, I just kept throwing food on her high chair tray.
Eat all the food!!!
When she was full, she threw the remainder of her lunch on the floor. When I got her down from her high chair, she immediately went and ate what she had thrown off the floor–a true cave baby.
I’m so proud.
