Lunch is a similar problem for me. I typically have something involving cheese, crackers, an apple, a sandwich, yogurt, or something along those lines. So most of that is now out. My husband typically just has dinner leftovers, so he doesn't have such an issue.
Today (our first day of Paleo), has already been a bit difficult. I made a big batch of hard boiled eggs yesterday so we could have an easy breakfast of eggs and fruit. That actually kept me reasonably full all morning. Yay, protein! Once I have more time on my hands, I plan to try some other easy make-ahead breakfasts. Stay tuned!
For lunch today, we both had some leftovers of meals that were primarily meat and veggies. I admit though, my leftover chowder did have milk and cheese in it, but hey- remember baby steps! So when I was still hungry 3 hours later, instead of going for the string cheese or crackers, I tried out a smoothie! I was on a smoothie kick for a while this summer, so I decided to break out the blender and try again! I am hoping to make large batches of smoothies as another option for a ready-made breakfasts or lunches. So, here is what I used today:
- Spinach (going green!)
- A squirt of Honey (not pictured)
- A splash of Milk (I realized I needed some sort of liquid to make the blender work and this was the best I came up with... I wish I had orange juice- I'll try that next time!)
The smoothie ended up tasting great and as I had heard- you can't taste the spinach. It just adds nutrients and turns it....
Stay tuned for more smoothie varieties and my attempts at figuring out breakfast and lunch. And of course our first Paleo dinner tonight! If you have any B/L recipes/ideas, please share!
