Paleo Challenge: Day 29

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!

Lunch: roti chicken salad


Dinner: curry meatball and kale stew (yes, this will definitely be blogged – it was so damn good!!)

Snacks: dates with cashew butter

Thank you so much for posting about your journey. I love the process of cooking and get a little burned out fixing the same things and am looking forward to adding some variety. I feel like I use the same techniques over and over: saute protein, stream/roast veggies, eat. Not that it isn't good, and I use seasonings, fats, and herbs to make tasty meals. I just start taking short cuts and get it robot mode. I enjoy cooking, and I'm excited to try some new recipes. Thank you!

I totally get how you feel! I was like that too in the beginning and then I just started to get creative and start throwing random things into a pot. Sometimes stuff I've never even tried before. I guess they don't call this a challenge for nothing! Haha

I've enjoyed reading your daily entries while you are on this paleo challenge, especially since I know I don't have the willpower to do it. Looking forward to reading your recap.
