About a bazillion people have asked me what I eat on this Paleo diet. I wrote down what I ate Saturday Jan. 31- Thursday Feb. 5. The weekends usually have a breakfast lunch combo since we sleep in.
Dressing was honey, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil
Dinner-Chicken/Sausage Vegetable Soup
2 garlic cloves
2 new potatoes dices
1 can of basil, garlic, oregano diced tomatoes
pink Himalayan salt
I cook separate mild sausage and also chicken tenderloins. I pull the chicken add both meats to the soup in crock pot. So flipping good!!!!! I have made this 3 other times since with different variations! I changed my base to a butternut squash sauce instead of the beef broth.
Other than water I had some almond milk and peppermint tea with a tsp of coconut sugar
Feb. 1 (super bowl Sunday)
blueberry hot tea with 1 tsp coconut sugar
For the party I made the same soup as the day before, but added spinach.
Deviled eggs using guacamole instead of mayo, pickles, and bacon bits on top.
For lunch I ate the leftover mix for the deviled eggs.
At the Super Bowl party I had some of my soup, fruit, deviled eggs, 2 chicken wings with a dry rub, 3 meat balls, and some water. I would assume the meatballs sauce was not Paleo so I limited myself to 3 instead of 646119 like I wanted because they were delicious!!!
1/2 scoop of protein powder
blueberry tea with coconut sugar
The hubby made a recipe that we have for Paleo cup cakes and they are AMAZING! Google Paleo mom cupcakes and you will find them. Easy and delish!

I tried to write down every thing I ate, but of course may have left off a few things. The biggest thing I have noticed is that I am not near as hungry! I am not needing to snack as often. I think because I am not filling my body with sugary food my blood sugar is not going up and down so much. It is staying more regulated so therefore I don't have the crazy hunger I did before. This is not perfectly Paleo, but I knew going in that it would take me a few months to really get the hang of this. I try to eat Protein at every meal, veggies and fruit daily, and good complex carbs once a day. I hope this helps a tiny bit for those of you who have asked to join me at the dinner table! This is tough, but I will not go back because the benefits are so worth it! I can tell when I eat processed things because my joints hurt! When I eat gluten I am miserable! I am so glad I finally made the choice to just do it and I feel CONFIDENT that God has helped me through this! I saw with those darn skittles that my self control is not great!
