That is a great idea! That way I am not stressing about what they are eating during the day as long as they have a great nutrition packed dinner. Thanks for the idea!

That makes sense. I admire people that can be that "disciplined." I always say do what you need to do as long as it doesn't hurt you or others. It sounds like you've made a very informed and educated decision to benefit your family. emoticon

Part of the deal with me going on an "extreme" diet (AKA, anything the husband and son decide is not what they want to eat) is that we do it for dinner, but they can eat whatever they want for their other meals/snacks, so it isn't a big impact on my son.

More power to you! I personally couldn't do it. I like my dairy and after knowing vegan vegetarians that take about 20-30 supplements a day due to lack of vitamins and minerals, I'll stick with the "moderation diet." emoticon That's where I eat what I want in moderation. 95% of the time it's "all good." Whole wheat bread, pasta, lean meats, fish, fruits, and veggies. I do eat chocolate or sweets occasionally.

I also have a daughter that is recovering from an eating disorder, she is an lacto-ova vegetarian and has been put on many supplements. She is on a multivitamin/mineral, calcium, vitamin D, fish oil, and vitamin E. She also take biotin. So I don't limit/exclude ANY food in our house. She's doing much better, but healthy eating, and eating enough, will always be a challenge for her.

Stay healthy!

How do the kids like it? My kids beg for me to bring some kind of junk food home every week. I've been strong though, lol.

I don't have one yet :) Just started Paleo on the first :)

We're doing a lot of basic meat & veggies meals - pot roast, roast chicken, that sort of thing - but haven't really settled on a "go-to" anything yet.

Yea they do seem very similar. What is your Paleo-friendly go-to snack and meal?

I'm transitioning to Paleo, which I think is similar.

No dairy is tough. Giving up bread has been really hard for me too. I think it's just one of those things we have to push through to get healthier.

I've been reading up on this and going back and forth with myself trying to figure out if I can do this or not. Anyone doing this? My stumper is the 'no dairy' thing. I love love love cheese! We may be eating to much in my family. I can buy a 5lb bag from Costco and my family of six will go through it in a little over a week! Other than that, I think that I can do the no processed all fresh foods thing. What about you?
