Paleo, halfway through

Well, I guess it's not quite halfway through Paleo week, but things are going pretty well. Been able to stick with it, and it's surprising that you can make some delicious things.

This morning I even had a smoothie!

Spoonful of Peanut Butter
Coconut Milk

Was pretty good, too!

Challenge #11 - Paleo Diet

It's November already, yikes! That means I've got 2 more challenges left this year, so I guess it's time to give one of the diets I've been meaning to try all year a shot - the Paleo diet.

An easy way to think of the Paleo diet is "eating like a caveman." The theory behind it is that after the agricultural revolution we started eating MAD GRAINS and other stuff like that, making us gain weight.

Basically, you can eat stuff cavemen would have eaten: lean meats, seafood, nuts, veggies, fruit.

You can't eat anything else: no dairy, no gluten, no beans, no bread, no grains.

There are obviously a lot of other rules and nuances to this diet, but I won't get into all that here. If you'd like to learn more, there are many great resources online that you can check out! Here's a good place to start.

I took a trip to Pathmark (aka the nicest grocery store in Jersey City) last night to stock up on essentials - spent a LOT of time in the vegetable section.

Also made an eggplant/mushroom curry last night to eat for lunch today and tomorrow. Recipe here.

With a little planning, I don't think the Paleo diet is going to be too hard to stick to. Hardest parts for me will be: no dairy (love me some milk), and no beer!

Check back next week for results!
