Paleo Diet- Week Two

I survived week 2 of the paleo diet! It was harder than the first week. I got really bored with what I was eating so I had to change it up to keep some variety motivation. (I have posted some of my pretty meals.)

So last Monday night this is what my dinner table looked like. It was super salad night!  Everything I could possibly think of to put on a salad that was in my kitchen.

Here’s my final creation. Delicious! In case you are wondering….yes I put some beans on there.  They were in my frig and needed eating. I hate to waste food! I know legumes are not part of paleo, I just didn’t want to see them go to waste since they are still good for you.  Those were my last and final beans.

Surprisingly,  I am  not as hungry all the time now and I really do not crave anything.  What bothers me is the sight of things I shouldn’t eat. For instance, at work or on tv commercials.

My biggest challenge is  our Friday night pizza night family tradition. I thought…How am I going to do that and stay paleo? So I purchased  2 small gluten free pizzas for Caroline and me to share and 2 regular pizzas for the boys and a little dark chocolate for dessert for us girls and ice cream for the boys. The chocolate is our treat for the week.  I am finding though, that the chocolate only bothers me when it is around. Out of sight, out of mind. I don’t crave it like I used to.

When you are an emotional eater like me you have to find comfort food. Now it is a banana with almond butter

Oh yeah. By the way, I am down 5 pounds in 2 weeks. Hip, hip, hooray.
