After I finished my Crossfit WOD:Cindy, I gathered some information from my coaches on the upcoming Paleo Challenge. They stated that it was to start on January 9th for a 7 week term. The nutrition seminar would be kicking it off that day as well as all of the before pictures to be taken. With this information I decided to start trying out the diet with the 80/20 rule before the official challenge begins.
At the grocery store, I spent the majority of my time in the produce section. I bought strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples, bananas, avocados, tomatoes, cucumbers, limes, carrots, celery and lettuce. Then I went and got some fish, chicken breasts, pork tenderloins, turkey fillets and steaks. I got pecans and almonds to snack on as well as some eggs for breakfast. It all looked so pretty, I wanted to take a picture!
I did buy some non paleo foods for the boyfriend. I got him vanilla wafers, milk, orange juice and chips. But that was it!! Everything else was Paleo and let me tell you something…. eating healthy is expensive!!! But well worth it in the end. When I got home I cooked my huney and I a nice Paleo friendly dinner- I baked some Orange Roughy Fillets seasoned with Mrs. Dash (no Salt), cucumbers marinated with lime juice, sliced bananas and strawberries with crushed almonds for dessert. I added an avocado for myself since I love them!
Everything tasted delicious! I didn’t make it to the strawberry banana concoction because I was too full. All in all I had a yummy meal.
So far this morning I ate a banana and a bowl of berries for breakfast. Its been almost 2 hours and I am hungry again….. what is a girl to do?? Anyways! I will keep you guys posted… whoever you may be that’s reading this =)
