Ready, Set, Go! / by Stephen Cooper

Welcome to the June 2014 Paleo Challenge.

I want to keep this challenge as simple as possible. When it comes to the Paleo Diet, there are oftentimes arguments about minutiae.  Is this OK to eat this, our caveman ancestors did or didn't eat this, etc..  

Try not to get caught up in that.  This is meant to be a healthy and fun journey, not one of deprivation and worry.

Stick to the basics which boils down to eating as wholesome and as natural as possible.

Do Eat:
Meats, fish, chicken, eggs
Fruit (limit if you want to decrease your weight faster)
Nuts, seeds
And healthy fats/oils such as avocado, macadamia nut, olive, walnut

Cereals, grains
Processed foods
Refined vegetable oils
Candy/junk food

Sleep 8 hours a night
Drink plenty of water

I'll be sending out some exercise ideas a little later today.

Breakfast:  Tropical Paleo Granola - MIchelle of @nom nom paleo

Lunch:  Mediterranean Chopped Chicken Salad - @Melissa of The Clothes Make The Girl

Dinner:  Paleo P.F. Chang's Chicken Lettuce Wraps - Russ Crandall of @The Domestic Man
