My friend Allie
convinced joined me in kicking off the New Year with a little primal eating. Why yes, the great 30 Day Paleo Challenge! I jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon in August—cutting out wheat, grain, flour products, most days of the week ( cheeseburgers, waffles, donuts are nonnegotiable). Frankly I love it, fad or not. Not for what it cuts out, but what it forces you to replace it with.
But the fitness freak in me decided why not start the new year with a shock to the system? Being hypoglycemic, I know I benefit from a low-sugar diet. Sugar is by far the hardest thing for me to give up and as Allie knows, I wasn’t quite sure I could make it 30 days! So I’ll try to blog checking in with how it’s going.
Here’s what I’ve eaten today so far:
Breakfast: eggs, kale, avocado, pine nut scramble
Lunch: squash fries & shredded turkey
…and 10 cups of water. I’m thirsty like crazy. insane.
25 days to go!
