The Vacation Struggle
« on: April 12, 2015, 01:12:59 PM »
Do I even want to document what I ate over the past few days? I was vacationing in TN, which is not exactly paleo friendly. Especially when the rest of the family is not paleo or anywhere near it. Breakfast was the hardest meal for me because my family is a major bread and pancakes bunch. The temptation, yet I know if I eat that I'll feel like a bloated slug for the rest of the day (which is not how I want to spend my time). :-\

Today (sunday): Haven't gone to the grocery store yet, but I was able to make a nice mushroom and egg omelet with orange slices on the side. For lunch I had a combination of salad (with paleo dressing!!!), pea soup and sweet potato fries.

Saturday: Embassy Suite's bacon, cantalop and a freshly made spinach, mushroom, pepper and onion omelet. Do I even want to know what type of oil was on the bacon or if those were real eggs? Probably not, so I'm not worrying about it. Everyone else in my family chowed down on pancakes, I even went as far as to pick up one of thier pancakes and smell it. But I'd rather fill up on food that will get me through the day.

Friday: I ate lunch for breakfast. The restaurant sold french toast, pancakes, grits, biscuits and cinnabun rolls for breakfast. I'm not down for any of that. Sometime soon I want to try making a paleo cinnabun roll, I forgot how good they looked. I ended up with two grilled chicken breasts, turnip greens and green beans for breakfast.

Praise the Lord for home cooking and fresh eggs! Can't wait to make some strawberry and banana pancakes. The wait has been too long.  :D

Family vacations are tough when diet restrictions exist.
It's so stressful because with kids especially days can revolve around meals and what you're going to eat.
