Paleo diet Day 3

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I am feeling quite content with my eating today. It went well even though the workday was long and at times stressful. Here's how the diet went:

Breakfast: banana with almond butter, tea (yes, I'll need to create more variety)

Snack: dates, almonds, black coffee

Lunch: 8 oz. turkey breast, leftover soup (see Day 2 dinner)

Late afternoon snack: this was at a work-related reception. I avoided the beer (sigh ... used to be a favorite) and had red wine (a nice cabarnet) instead. Also avoided the filo dough hors d'oeuvres and and concentrated on the veggies (cherry tomatoes, black olives, broccoli, red pepper strips), some Chinese-style pork slices, and chicken satay (sounds better than "chicken on a stick").

Dinner: baked chicken, bought at the supermarket; collard greens and sweet potatoes, homegrown watermelon slices (Nov. 14!), herbal tea.

The biggest temptation was definitely looking at those lovely amber beers around the table. But, the red wine made it a lot easier to bear. emoticon

See what tomorrow brings.

    Sorry about that, guess you can have lots of carbs. Eat a lot of good fat to feel full. I have two eggs, 1/2 avocado and 2-3 T coconut oil, stay full all morning.

    That is really great, might try a whole30 to get jump started. DH gave up the beer, looks difficult. Banana, dates, some of these things are so sweet it can make it harder to not have cravings, maybe go lower carb.
Keep it up and keep reading.

Cool start, you can do it.
