Happy Sunday and 2nd Week into your paleo challenge!! To recap our meeting from Saturday, we discussed the topics from the blog last week including how to read the labels when you buy eggs, new and yummy recipes that can help you have guilt-free dessert, plus paleo in the news! If you haven’t already, browse through the past weeks blog posts! Some said they had a sluggish week and others feel fine and full of energy. Take it as it comes; don’t stress about anything right now. You’re only 2 weeks in and there’s a long life ahead of you.
Food For Thought: If you’re feeling dissatisfied after your meals and snacks, you may need to alter your proportions of Fat/Carb/Protein and possibly eat More! Within your meals include protein the size of your hand, 2 handfuls of vegetables, and a TBS or so of fat. Within your snacks, have about 1/3 the size of your meal. Look to below for help (I have male/female approximations).
protein snacks: 1-2 chicken strips, 2-5 slivers of steak, a handful of shrimp, 1/2 -1 can of tuna
carb snacks: handful of baby carrots, 1-2 carrot stick, palmful – handful of grapes, handful of strawberries, handful of sliced bell peppers.
fat snacks: palmful almonds/walnuts/cashews/macadamia nuts, 1/4 avocado, coconut oil, olive oil
