We have less than two weeks now until we start with the Paleo Transition, I’ve decided that Saturday, March 14, 2015 is the day that we will begin our change. I figure I’ll start off that morning making us black coffee (just the thought of black coffee grosses me out, BUT I’m going to have to get used to it, dammit!) and then I’ll make us some breakfast, probably some egg muffins (the kind you make in a muffin tin, full of yummy goodness) and some bacon. Who doesn’t love bacon!?!!? Lunch who knows, maybe a salad with eggs as protein and avocado for a healthy fats (along with veggies) and a homemade dressing from the book I’ve been reading and finally for dinner, I’ll make a protein, with some sweet potato and lots of veggies.
The key will be preparation and planning out meals for my ease instead of trying to plan meals on the fly. I think I’ll get too stressed out with that approach, at least initially so my best bet is to plan things out. Like this:
On a weekend where Jeff was away a couple of weeks ago, I literally lost track of the time and got totally enraptured in reading that book like an obsessed fiend. I’m trying not to think about the transition too much, but I’ll pin recipes here and there. Mainly, I’m excited for this change. The biggest challenge will be: no creamer in coffee, no sugar and cutting out pop. I don’t think the complete and total elimination of grains will be devastating to me, because we don’t eat a hell of a lot of it to begin with. I have noticed that in the last two weeks, though, I have been making a bit of pasta to eat with out dinner a few times, here and there. I think that’s because my subconscious knows what’s coming so I’m getting my fill now. It’s been kind of nice pairing pasta with fresh vegetables and sautéing them in avocado oil (another fantastic purchase of mine – completely odorless and tasteless – it cooks much like how coconut oil does – LOVE IT)….
Anyways, I don’t have much more time to write so we’ll leave it at that and I promise these Paleo posts will get more exciting when we get going. Until then…….
