A few reactions after looking through the food logs:
First, NICE WORK! Overall everyone did a great job with the first week of Paleo. A few of you had some serious challenges but stayed the course.
Second, fruit for snacks. MANY people relied heavily on fruit (apples, bananas, oranges) for snacks. Try to incorporate vegetables into your snacking options. It’s easy to throw extra vegetables into a stir fry and pack them for the next day’s snack.
Third, planning ahead. Many of you commented on the preparation that eating this way requires. Yes and no. A good rule of thumb, always cook more than what you think you’ll need. A few quick and easy solutions for preparation. If you make Paleo muffins, make 2 batches and freeze one. The next time you’re behind on breakfast options you can take out the container for the week. Boil a dozen hardboiled eggs for quick egg options out the door in the morning.
Fourth, did you post your “Read this First” on your fridge? A few people have sent me some very cool examples of their Read this First paper including an awesome collage. If you haven’t already, get it on your fridge.
