I Neanderthal.

A bit rumbly in the tumbly.

I don’t usually envision Pooh when I start with caveman, but there it is.

In an effort to save my life, I’m giving the Paleo diet a shot. Hence the rumbly tumbly bit. It’s only day three of this. Was advised to give it at least thirty days. So I shall. Before and after shots? Sure. Tomorrow. I promise.

 

In the meantime, some observations…wheat and sugar seem to be in everything. Soy ha been my milk replacement since figuring out I have a lactose thing. Nix on soy and all things legume. This isn’t as hard as when I went vegan, but I have never been so aware of the chemistry of food.

Discovery number one- a can of coconut cream is an amazing thing. Good for anything that cream would be used for. Made a fantastic curry dish and also a version of creamed spinach that was tasty. Also great steamed for my morning latte.

Revelation number two is the existence of almond meal. It functions like flour. Made a crepe using it in combination with coconut cream and eggs. This was the base for the creamed spinach. It hasn’t been bad. I thought I ate plenty. The stomach gurgles anyway.

    I’m started eating paleo April 1st. I am going to attempt to do a 30 day challenge. The fact that cheese is not included in this makes it very hard for me to think about doing. I heard is good for you tho, so lets see if it’s true.

  2. My fiancee and I just started on this a couple of weeks ago as well. We have both cheated on it a few times, but are trying to stick with it as much as possible. The biggest thing that I’ve noticed is that I’m losing weight without any increase in activity. It will be interesting to see what happens if I actually start to exercise on top of eating healthy 🙂
