Anyone have a recipe for a Crock Pot Pork Loin recipe?
Hi everyone :-) My husband and I just started a Paleo diet today. I'm looking for some ideas for snacks and quick/easy lunches. Do you have any suggestions? Also, how long after you started this lifestyle did you notice any differences (be it skin, weight, energy, whatever)?
Thank you for information!
I started using a free app (or was it .99? either way, whatevs) to track all my food on my iPhone. It's neat because you can scan food items in addition to entering them manually and you can track the nutrients and such. And of course it helps me to be conscious of what I'm shoving in my mouth XD
I'm currently at 158 pounds; I don't have an exercise regiment as of yet.
How goes it? We've been pretty lazy lately with the Paleo "diet". We haven't started eating bread & grains with abandon, but we haven't been very strict either. So much that my husband has started snoring again! Gotta get back into making better food choices that's for sure. We're also eating out again waaaay too much. We're going to be curbing that as well.
What do you do when you find you've gotten off track with your eating?
Also, I updated the community (for the next two months, at any rate) to be a paid community so there are no annoying ads!
I normally never click on any of the ads on Facebook but about two weeks ago I did. I saw an ad for a Paleo Pre-Cooked meal program based out of Atlanta and figured I would give it a try. In essence, you have a cook in Atlanta who cooks authentic Paleo meals, seals them up in a air tight package , freezes them and mails them to you.
For about $180, I got five meals for three weeks sent to my home. Each meal has a meat and two sides of veggies. The reason I decided to go with this route is because I work a 12 hour night shift and if I don't wake up in time to cook my own meals, pack them up to go etc etc, then I have to find something to eat when I am out and about driving around ( I work in law enforcement).
I figured it boiled down to about $6 a meal, which is what I was paying to get something through whatever drive through I happened to stop by or the meal I usually picked up at Publix ( Chicken salad and carrot salad).
Anyway, the meals are pretty darn good and the portions are not that bad. I generally get full for a while and generally only snack on fruits and trail mix now. That combined with my Paleo Shake meal replacement I have managed to drop even more weight ( although I have been slacking in the gym department).
Having done this method and finding it to be a very good way of packaging my meals so they will keep for a while, I am thinking of not paying the $180 to do it again next month and just make a lot of my own meals, use my own food sealer and just make a bunch of meals that way.
Anyone else have any experience going that route? Would I be missing out on some key nutrients by not having freshly prepared meals?
