My very good friends from Jersey drove down to DC yesterday, and we had a lovely tour through the National Gallery and about the Smithsonian. We also had a riveting discussion on the Paleo Diet.
As someone who’s fought with stomach problems for a long time, it sounded like it was worth a try.
Essentially, you eat fats, proteins, vegetables (except legumes) and fruit. You don’t eat grains, or any starches with the exception of yams/potatoes. Definitely no dairy or processed sugars.
The no dairy isn’t a problem, seeing as I can’t. I’ve always been a bit obsessed with carbs (seriously), so I figured that doing this might break my habit of turning to bread at all times.
It’s a win, win!
So, my day started off with a paleo-friendly fix:
Corn technically isn’t allowed on the Paleo diet, but since it was in my mixed veggies, I figured it was okay for now.
Delightful! It’s a mix of about 1/2 cup of egg whites, 1 large egg and a dash of almond milk for the scrambled eggs, topped with a bit of hot sauce, cayenne pepper and the normal salt/pepper. Delicious!
Stay fly, readers!
