Week 1 of the paleo challenge is now in the books! I hope everyone has had a successful week. Yesterday for our community event we went grocery shopping at Kroger. To recap we talked about the importance of reading labels, sticking to the parameter of the grocery store, only buying items you know you will eat (this will help save you money), and having a plan! Remember that you will most likely need to go to the store again later in the week- plan accordingly so you do not get in a pinch where you have no paleo food in the house. When it comes to produce try to buy local- Bloomingfoods, Sahara Mart, and the Butchers Block are great resources… remember when in doubt (about what is in the food) ask!
Go ahead and reflect this week on what you found to be the most difficult thing about the challenge and something that you have enjoyed so far. It could be dealing with the detox, having trouble planning, maybe you don’t know what to eat or have caught yourself in that fruit-nut eating habit. Overall, how did week one treat you?
