I have a paleo cookbook that uses sweet potatoes... I questioned it at it first a couple years ago when I ate paleo, but I love sweet potatoes so I never actually did research on it. I figured they were paleo. Ill be sure to keep that in mind when I do grocery shopping! Thanks! By the way, after today's meals, I completely agree that I need more fats/fattier meats.
Today I had work at 7am at my other more relaxed job, and breakfast was a little rushed so I just made 4 scrambled eggs with coconut oil. I knew I'd be hungry in a couple of hours and I packed some nuts and a huge salad with chicken and an avocado for lunch.
Around 10, my stomach was growling and I ate a couple handfuls of nuts.
12pm is my lunch break at work, I ate maybe 4 bites of my salad and I was full from all the nuts I had already eaten. I also made sure to stay extra hydrated just in case water had to deal with how I felt yesterday.
I didnt eat dinner until around 730, but I was definitely hungry by the time I finished cooking. I had mashed cauliflower, grassfed steak, and sautéed onions, as well as a cut up apple that I dipped in guacamole. (I found the apples and guacamole idea from another person on this site and had to try it and found that its awesome!!) I definitely have a ton of left overs for tomorrow at school.
I have acid reflux, and I started feeling a bit sick around 330 or so. In the past, I've ended up with stomach ulcers (the doctors say the ulcers are a mystery bc there was no known cause for them) and the pain usually gets worse when I'm hungry. I took some perscription medicine and drank a lot of water and it eventually went away. I found that the salad dressing my mother assured me I could eat(she put it in a dressing container for me since we were making lunch at the same time) was made with sugar and soybean oil...- I plan to keep an eye out for which foods make my stomach feel sick- I'm wondering if it was the sugar?
The paleo diet is still a work in progress, but I'm not too far off from being on track I don't think.
