Post Paleo

Dinosaur terrarium

Today marks six weeks of Paleo for Craig and I. How'd we do?
I think we did pretty well. We didn't make it through 100% of the time, but I'm pretty certain we averaged over 80%, probably closer to 90%. I coped a little better with office lunches than my sandwich-fan husband, but that was always expected.

My smallest pair of jeans, the jeans I couldn't fit 6 weeks ago? are now the only pair of jeans I own which fit properly.

So what now?

Much to Craig's chagrin, I don't want to jump back on the refined carbohydrate bandwagon. But I miss ... soy sauce. And tortillas. And chickpeas.
(I really don't miss dairy, or bread)

I think the lasting impact of Paleo is more about eating whole foods.
I read more labels than ever before. I avoid emulsifiers and stabilisers and ridiculous additives. Unusually, I'm eating more organic than ... ever. It just seems to be making sense to me.

Oh and the coworker who said he would waste us all? Didn't make it a week. Victory!
