#30PP Meals

This is where I’ll be letting you know what we’ve had for meals in a day. It won’t be added to the blog because I don’t want to inundate subscribers with e-mail updates.

Holy hell, has it been two weeks? Let’s get going.

May 16

Breakfast: Eggs scrambled with green peppers and onions, topped with cheddar

Lunch: Roasted chicken breast (seasoned with garlic, paprika, chili powder, sea salt and white pepper) with side salad of mixed greens and sliced European cuke

Snacks: Orange, grapes

Dinner: Pork loin roast with spice rub and maple glaze, roasted sweet potatoes

May3

Breakfast: Eggs scrambled with sausage and topped with salsa, actual real coffee because I finally remembered to buy some.

Lunch: Nada, I wasn’t hungry enough for it.

Dinner: Roasted chicken with sugar snap peas and an orange.

Today’s challenge: Bodyweight exercies. Not only did I achieve my goal of two reps of 40 pushups and 50 squats, I also managed two “almost” minute long planks. On top of that I did what I would consider a sprint. Purists may not, but I had the stroller and was running uphill so I definitely created an acute stress situation ;-)

May 2

Breakfast: Eggs scrambled with sausage and leftover steak drippings from dinner last night. Spicy chai tea with honey.

Lunch: Leftover sweet potato, roasted chicken, banana.

Dinner: More scrambled eggs, plain. We didn’t have anything else handy and I wasn’t super hungry, so the simplicity of this didn’t bother me at all.

Today’s challenge: The long walk. We totally pulled it off! My son and I just ambled around for an hour, I even made it barefoot for about 2 of the 3 1/2 miles we covered. It was fun pointing out everything from barking dogs to “really big rocks.” I love that he’s so easily fascinated. Things like seeing a school bus drive by can put him in a great mood for half an hour because school buses are awesome.

May 1

Breakfast: Eggs scrambled with butter-sauteed kale, green peppers, onions, topped with full-fat cheddar. Black coffee sweetened with honey

Lunch: Leftover baked chicken breast chopped, tossed with leftover spaghetti squash and tomato sauce.

Dinner: London broil and baked sweet potato. (Top the sweet potato with a bit of maple if you like.)

Snacks: Orange, banana, roasted almonds

Today’s challenges:

Being hungry and facing loads of non-primal treats at my grandmother’s house. Food at Nana’s always tastes better, doesn’t it? But I didn’t touch it.

I did some intense housecleaning for about an hour this morning, which doesn’t replace the intended strength training workout but was my reason for not getting it in. I realized too late that our house was in such disarray I had nowhere to exercise. (We do live in a studio apartment, after all.) So instead, I cleaned up to make it possible to live up to my own challenge in the coming 29 days.

    Go, girl! I have yet to really DIVE into Paleo/Primal…. I have already admitted to myself that I have a serious sugar issue, and I have an endocrine issue called PCOS, so it’s not even a question that I *need* to do this.

    Thanks for pumping up the rest of us. Seeing someone else going for it is definitely a boost. Best of luck, and I hope you can avoid what I lovingly call the “carb sweats” when you’ve got a hankering for something sweet!

      My trick for the “carb sweats” which I get, uh, once a month or so – baked sweet potato. It’s sweet, and it has carbs without bringing a whole mess of unhealthy stuff with it. I love this lifestyle, I’m not perfect in keeping with it but even just having something to work toward feels great. If you decide to give it a shot, I would love to know what you think :)
