From May 11 – June 10, I’m doing a paleo challenge with Gina. I decided to journal this as something to look back on and also for others to follow along and to use as reference in case they want to take on this challenge in the future. I’ll link to recipes (either mine that I developed on this journey or other people’s) when applicable, but I don’t usually cook from recipes for myself so if you leave a comment asking for the recipe for something, there is none unless otherwise noted. My purpose of doing this isn’t to lose weight. It’s changing up my eating habits to see how it works for my body. I’m not a health professional so I cannot offer you any advice. There are numerous resources out there for paleo. Do your research before committing.
Follow along with our Instagram posts #RTTKTFTpaleochallenge for more ideas on what we’re shopping for, eating, and more!
May 26: Day 16
Notes: the egg cup muffin recipe that you all kept asking me about is finally posted!
Breakfast: i made a huuuuuge stack of cashew coconut pancakes for breakfast this week. the original recipe is here. i omitted the lemon juice and blueberries. i put in 3 tablespoons of cashew butter into the batter. omg best thing everrrrr
Lunch: boring salad from chop’t
Dinner: Power Supply braised beef penang curry with string beans and sweet potatoes
Snacks: almonds, apple
Exercise: 15-minute butt and thigh workout, 10-minute ab workout, walked for 40 minutes
Thoughts: so my spin instructor posted a photo of one of her meals a couple weeks ago and she said she got it from this company called Power Supply. it’s basically a food delivery service that has REAL good for you food. meaning, whatever active lifestyle you have, they have meals that tailored to it with ingredients that are “responsibly sourced, local and organic as possible, naturally raised, ixnay on antibiotics and hormones and other added stuff.”
i chose a paleo-specific menu. and what’s awesome is that these are already pre-cooked so all you gotta do is heat them up. now, i only did this for this week because i was gone all weekend and had no time to prep for this upcoming week so i ordered 5 lunches. since it was Memorial Day yesterday, the location where you pick them up (you can choose pick up locations) was closed so I ate my first lunch for dinner tonight. i was so surprised at how flavorful and FULL i was. it was absolutely delicious! i wish they delivered to the house like blue apron, though. that’s the only con so far. traffic in the dc-area is not fun so having to pick up your meals (you get a set of them) is a hassle. they probably will have a delivery service soon! anyway, so if you’re in the LA or DC area, i would definitely give Power Supply a gander. it’s totally worth it for those busy weeks!
and because people seem to think i’m getting sponsored to say stuff on my blog that i actually like and want to share with the world: this is not an ad nor is it sponsored. i found out about this company through word of mouth (via my spin instructor) and i paid for the meals out of my own pocket. however, if you click on the link above and order, you get 1 meal free and i get a little credit. ok, i’m getting off my soapbox and going to watch game of thrones now :)
