Jerky, nuts, dried fruit, fruit leather, lunch meat, hard boiled eggs- especially if you have a small cooler and ice pack. The hotel we stayed at when we were driving home from my parents' place had continental breakfast and they had hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and yogurt, so you might call and see what they have there.

Thanks! My bff stayed there recently and she said they have cereal, milk, toast, oranges, banana. Unfortunately no eggs or bacon

Its really hard to eat that many paleo calories without relying on a lot of meat (which I'm not naturally a big eater of).



I I tried the suggestion on here to strain fresh juice and its much more palatable that way. What are some of your favorite juices?


I juice twice a day. I always add some ice and a straw. It makes it all much easier to drink. I actually look forward to my juices now. I couldn't take the room temp frothy juice by itself.

I'm glad you like it!! I usually just throw in whatever I have. Not very helpful, sorry! I aim for 50/50 fruits and veggies. If it's just me drinking it I usually put in more veggies than 50% (now! I couldn't when I started!) if DD is drinking it, or my other kids are over, then I go a little heavier on the apples if I think of it - just so they'll like it, and think they like it ;-) DD usually drinks it no matter how I make it. DH is the tricky one! If he's going to drink it, I have to make sure to add more fruits or he makes fun of it! So I usually don't mind leaving fruits out, because then he won't steal it from me!

There was a pretty red "detox" juice I tried the other day, it actually had a recipe, I'll go find it.

That sounds so yummy! But I don't think I need more calories Altho I have no idea really. I think I'm going to join myfitnesspal and try to track calories for awhile just to see where I'm at. I've never counted calories before! I'm kinda scared!

You already got awesome ideas. Our go-to's are fruit leather, nuts, clementines, hard boiled eggs, nitrate free deli meat

oh YES! A straw cup helps immensely. I often don't care for the smell of vegetable juice, but it tastes fine. So if I put it in a straw cup I can't smell it - and I love it! The kids like it much better too if they can't smell it ;-)

For those of us struggling with pregnancy aversions and morning sickness... I was directed to a couple good posts on MDA. Basically, he says not to stress and to do what you can =D

Re: Paleo Chat Jan, Feb & March 2013

Sure, I'll play the meal plan game!

Monday -
breakfast: juice/eggs
lunch: lettuce salad with avocado and green pepper and tomato
supper: steak or pork chops from the freezer with broccoli

Tuesday -
breakfast: juice
lunch: smoothies and tuna
supper: cauliflower "pizza" topped with mushrooms, green and red peppers

Ok, someone else's turn. I think I need to go to the store!

I'm also having a hard time getting in enough clean calories. I'm aiming for 1500 or so to lose. Trying to eat more veggies but they don't add up very fast
