I’ve adhered to a Paleo diet off and on for several years, but finally adopted it full time a few months ago. I had been plumping up a l’il bit in my 40’s, and finally decided that I no likey being chubby. I’m on the taller side, so I’d been told I wore it well, but I still felt lousy… not like my old self.
Anyway, Paleo’s been terrific, and not at all difficult to sustain. I’ve retrained my brain to be repulsed by the thought of eating carbs. Took a little while, but there’s just no arguing with the results. My doctor loves me.
So’s here’s a thread to share your Paleo (and/or Keto) experiences, food ideas and tips for handling social situations… Thanksgiving, for example.
I’ll be alone this Thanksgiving so I’ll have have no trouble at all, but truthfully, I wouldn’t have any trouble even if I were attending a family dinner. Reason? I have no problem telling people “No”. Just stick to the meats and veggies, and most folks won’t even notice. But if they do push the breads and pies on you, just politely decline. If they keep pushing, I push I harder. “I said 'No”, don’t ask me again or this will get really awkward for you." :eek:
How 'bout some Paleo side dishes? My favorite is roasted whole mushrooms. Drizzle with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Hell, go nuts and have a sweet potato.
Jump in… what y’all got??
