The challenge is in full swing! Today’s featured Expert for the 30 Day Paleo Love Challenge is posted here, at Crossfit Love! You may recognize the Expert – Steve of Steve’s Original! I moonlight (And daylight. And butt-crack of dawnlight) as the Nutrition Advisor for Steve’s Original – if you don’t keep up with the SO blog you’re missing some excellent Cave Girl action.
So here’s the rundown of my Day 2. A late breakfast of 2 fried eggs and bacon:
Lunch was a giant bowl of raw beef topped with three raw eggs.
Now that you’ve been reminded of how quick-witted and hilarious I am, I’ll move on to meal #2, which was my last meal of the day today. One of my goals for this challenge is to practice intuitive, reasonable eating. I often eat just for the Paleo sake of it – I enjoy food and love cooking, so at times I eat outside reasonable bounds. Part of my journey into the Primal life has been slowly coming to terms with the fact that food is fuel, that it should be the best fuel possible, and that emotional attachments to food can and should be conquered.
After yesterday’s travel day and having another half day of driving today, I expected to be more hungry. But a bowl of Paleo Paella for dinner was enough for tonight. I always feel a little wonky after traveling, so I don’t mind refraining from food-system overload.
#PaleoLove day 2 complete!
