Eating like cavemen.

August 5, 2014

On Sunday, in preparation for our wedding, Adam and I started the paleo diet. The paleo diet is described as, "An effort to eat like we used to back in the day…way back in the day. If a caveman couldn't eat it, neither can you. This means anything we could hunt or find – meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds." 

The past two days have included grocery shopping at Whole Foods and King Sooper in order to fill our pantry with all things paleo. That included coconut oil, coconut flour, tons of meat, eggs, and more green veggies than you could imagine. Things not included in that list: milk, ice cream, pasta, rice, bread, chips, crackers, yogurt, and the worst, coffee creamer. Adams biggest fear starting this was the loss of bread and sandwiches. So, to remedy that, we found some gluten free (brown rice - a violation!) tortilla's so he could have some sandwiches. 

The last two days have been a hilarious trial and error process of making paleo breakfasts, lunches, dinners and desserts. Starting today, I'm going to blog, with pictures, the next 30 days of paleo. If you have any recipes you love, please send them this way. 

Day 1 dinner: coconut crusted chicken with roasted zucchini and onions. 
Day 2 dinner: bunless turkey burgers with goat cheese, tomatoes and lettuce and a side of broccoli. Needless to say, Adam was less than thrilled with the dry broccoli option. 

My next mission is to pinterest all kinds of interesting and delicious, caveman food. Here we go, wish us luck.
