Daily-O Paleo: Week 2 Round Up

Wow, I had to take a second to remember what week of paleo I was on! I take this as a good sign, I think it means that I'm adjusting well. It feels like we've been doing this forever!

I'm going to be honest, I didn't write down every single thing I ate this week. I started to, but then it seems I forgot and stopped at Tuesday. Oh well. I did, however, start a new blog (if you haven't heard yet) and attached it to this one. I wanted a place for just recipes. So I made one! Check out From My Kitchen, With Love. If you don't you're really lame.

Sweet potato hash, 2 eggs,
bacon crumbles and avo. Yum.
Anyway, I've been enjoying paleo so far. Week one was rough adjusting to not having everything I wanted. But now I'm feeling better. I've been sleeping really well, no waking up in the night or having problems falling asleep. I do find that because I'm eating a full breakfast, usually eggs, a veggies and a meat, that I'm not so hungry throughout the day. I snack a little, mostly because I  love dried fruit but I need to knock that right off.

Bora Bora, you are delicious. 
I'm starting at the gym today. I have the whole week off so I plan on spending that time working out, catching up on my correspondence with family and reading a lot about how to manage my time with paleo. I want to develop a system so that I'm not cooking all the friggin time!

Oh, I just remembered one of my other favorite dishes that we had last week! We had spaghetti squash with meat sauce. It was just like eating pasta but more interactive and fun. I loved roasting the squash then shredding it. It was really cool. Watery, yes, but delicious. We're going to have it again this week.

I have noticed with this past week that I wonder why not everyone lives like this. It's really easy and eliminates a lot of foods that aren't super good for you. I think, if I feel like it, I may incorporate beans back into my diet when the initial 30 days is up but at the same time, I want to see how long I can keep this up. 

I do think traveling will be difficult. Like when we go to Vegas in June, how easy will it be to have access to eggs and avocados every day. Plus, I plan on being hung over most of the time! Hey, at least I'm being honest.

Here's to the beginning of week three!


  1. We recently started with paleo too, so I'm really loving your recipes. I've posted a few, but plan on putting up a lot more once we move because I've loved experimenting with new things since starting it.

    I will say, it is pretty hard to stick to when traveling - even more so when drinking. I don't know about you, but when I'm hungover, all I want is greasy, bready, goodness :)

  2. Oh your blog is really lovely sweetie now I´m following you i hope your follow me back.
