a dear friend, Julie, was in town visiting and came over to help me cook dinner tonight. it may have been the best dinner i've had during this whole challenge. we made fish tacos, sans the tortilla, and slaw from her self-published recipe book easy meals. we included kale salad and avacado. there was so much texture and depth to every bite. thank you Julie for spending the time with us and as always teaching me something new about cooking and nutrition.
day 18 and i can't imagine going back. as each day passes by, i feel stronger, happier, healthier and more motivated. since i already keep gluten and diary out of my diet because of allergies it may be in my best interest to stay as true as i can to paleo.
today i read this; it's better to be restrictive than moderate.
this rings so true to me and may just become my motto.
yes, this lifestyle takes much effort and so much planning and thinking ahead but it still is worth the inconvenience it causes at times. as the days pass by it becomes less consuming and more fulfilling.
