EVERYTHING about PALEO!

 YOU GUYS ASKED…
so here is a list of what I usually eat and what I ate when I lost my 60 POUNDS after having my 2nd BABY! 
DISCLAIMER:
Unlike the title of my blog post…my diet is FAR FROM ‘EVERYTHING’ PALEO!
I have more of a ‘MODIFIED PALEO’ lifestyle!
{FOUND ON PINTEREST.COM}
 THE PALEO PYRAMID is as shown above but I allow legumes {beans} and ‘some’ dairy in my diet!
Here is an overall list of pretty much what I eat…
ANOTHER DISCLAIMER:
I allow myself little ‘rewards’ or ‘treats’ here and there…
I love my cupcakes, cinnamon rolls and candy…so if I am being really strict I will restrict myself to one piece of candy a day or a few bites of a sweet treat!
I am WAY more of a ‘sugar person’ then a ‘breads person’ so keeping grains out of my diet isn’t very difficult for me!
AND you better believe that if I am on VACA I am having me some rolls with my dinner!!
THAT BEING SAID…here is a look at the PALEO lifestyle I strive to live by day to day!

Breakfast:
Eggs with ANY VEGGIES you want…I usually do…mushrooms and a small handful of cheese
Greek yogurt with strawberries or any berries
Almond butter with apples

Lunch:
Turkey slices
Steamed veggies {in the freezer section: steam-able bags} best invention ever
or big bags of veggies using the microwave steamer from pampered chef
Raw veggies
Cottage cheese with avocados
Tomatoes and avocados
Hummus and veggies
Raw fruit

Dinner:
Roast
Any meat prepared with spices
Hamburger
Mashed cauliflower
Cauliflower rice
Egg surprise {salsa, mushrooms, ground beef, spices}
Sweet potatoes
Thai food
Sushi:without rice
Lemon herb salmon with slivered almonds
Zucchini pasta with ground turkey, veggies and tomato sauce
Lettuce wraps: {rotisserie chicken, mango’s, broccoli slaw, avocados, ginger sauce}  
Rotisserie chicken
Salads: canned chicken, mustard, slivered almonds, pomegranates, small handful of cheese, balsamic Vinegar, craisins, mushrooms, sprouts, sunflower seeds…anything really…
Brussel sprouts
Greek Shish Kabobs with Greek yogurt dip
PALEO lasagna {cucumber noodles}
Any kind of meat you put in a tortilla or bun but wrapped in romaine lettuce instead!!
AND any random meal you throw together using Paleo meat and veggies

Snacks:
You can make all your treats with almond flour and honey! REALLY! refer to my PINTEREST to see recipes! 
Paleo brownies {can be made with dates, almond flour}
Almonds {these SAVE me during the night!!} seriously I snack on these all night at work!
Cocoa almonds {these too!}
Mandarin oranges
Apple slices
Sugar snapped peas
All natural fruit leather {dehydrated strawberries, apples, cinnamon and water}
Dried fruit {craisins, apples, pears, strawberries, mango’s} those are my favorites but you can really do any-just make sure they don’t have a sugar coating on them
More than 70% dark chocolate
Green smoothies or all fruit smoothies {not really encouraged but I love me some Naked juice!}

One question I received was…how do you stay energized throughout your night shifts??
 {image: google.com}
I drink ALL WATER…and put use these NUUN tablets to enhance my water!
I use the KONA COLA kind!
I get them at our local running store and they are AWESOME!!
They are like Gatorade but without all the sugar or calories!
They give me the electrolytes I need while keeping me energized!
{A GREAT alternative to Diet Coke!!}
I THINK that pretty much covers it!!
I hope this helps all you mothers out there that are wanting to lose that baby weight OR even those who just want to eat CLEAN!!
I strive to raise my children on this diet as well but I would but lying if I said little R doesn’t have her ‘all natural’ chicken nuggets every once in a while too!
For Reagan I try to stay more “balance” and “healthy”!
I think that is the MOST IMPORTANT thing for young growing kids!!!
I don’t stress as long as she is eating everything on the food pyramid at least twice a day!
Feel free to ask more questions if some arise!!

XOXO

    You go girl! We’ve been doing a lot better about how we eat at our house, but we aren’t anything quite like this (yet). Baby steps I guess! Way to be!

    I would love to try cross fit but getting to a gym with two small kids is tough plus I have knee trouble. Do you find it’s hard on your knees or know people with knee pain that still do cross fit successfully? It looks like so much fun!
