Mel's Going Paleo Log
« on: June 14, 2008, 10:08:31 AM »
Hooray for accountability! I'll post my starting stats later.

Goal 1 - Eliminate desserts - This one I've pretty much done(see below), I'm going to keep desserts for holidays.
Goal 2 - Eliminate processed grains - this one I'm working on.
Goal 3 - Eliminate tubers
Goal 4 - Eliminate all grains
Goal 5 - Reduce or eliminate dairy

Alright, so yesterday was pretty bad. I didn't eat until after work around 4, and really should have had more than a BBQ salad. Instead when I went shopping, despite being so resolute before entering the grocery store, I picked up a pint of Ben & Jerry's to go with my organic chard and brussel sprouts. I've always heard that one shouldn't go grocery shopping while hungry, but assumed that of course, I'm much to strong willed to fall prey to the aisles of dessert. Wrong! Turns out I'm human after all.

Found out the first ingredient to my favorite BBQ sauce at work is HFCS! It's like eating soda! Sad day. I'll take my ribs with a dry rub, please.

Because of my splurge yesterday I'm skipping dessert on Father's Day, it shouldn't be too hard. We're grilling, so there'll be plenty of steak to keep me happy. Today I'm hiking a bit, packing a trail mix for my vegetarian friend, and jerky, fruit and nuts for me. I'm staying away from the granola.

That HFCS is a sneaky little devil!  The ribs with dry rub sounds terrific!  Love ribs!
