paleo roadtrip

with 2 comments

don’t worry, my blog is not going all nutritional.  that’s what this blog is for.  this is a one-entry thing (unless something cool happens)

recently i have started the paleo lifestyle.  it was tough to start, but it is getting easier as time goes on.  if you’re unfamiliar with paleo, click here.  if you’re too lazy, it’s essentially called the “caveman diet.”  only natural foods like meats, nuts, veggies, and fruits.  nothing processed.  it’s been going well so far.  i’ve lost 16 pounds and still losing 🙂

i’m currently in raleigh, nc for  a wedding.  one of my worries was how i was going to make the 6.5 hour drive without stopping for fast food or snacks.   here’s how i made it with no trouble at all:

i packed my own lunch – steamed broccoli, grilled zucchini, steamed chicken, some baked tofu

and some snacks – hard boiled eggs,

and these delicious friends from trader joes:


with their help, i made it the whole trip without stopping for fast food (although i could so go for some qdoba or bojangles).

my next challenge is how to make it through a wedding weekend going paleo (and then another wedding weekend next week).

then my next challenge will be how to make the trip back to atlanta without having prepared food before hand.  maybe i’ll just snack it until i get home.
