Paleo challenge: day 26

From Jan 1 – 31 I’m doing a strict paleo (slightly modified Whole30) challenge with my CrossFit box. I decided to journal the month in food on here (in addition to normal posting) after getting a huge positive response on my Facebook page. I’m also going to detail the amount of sleep I got, the workout for the day and any other relevant notes. I’ll only detail drinks when it’s something other than water or tea, but note that I typically drink 80-100 ounces of water a day. I’ll link to recipes (either mine or other people’s) when applicable, but I don’t usually cook from recipes for myself so if you leave a comment asking for the recipe for something, there is none unless otherwise noted.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Notes for the day:

I ate french onion soup as an appetizer and it was glorious. I’ll be avoiding milk after this challenge is over, but cheese is not something I’m willing to give up for the long run. It also doesn’t have nearly the same effect on me as milk and yogurt. Interesting…

    hey Gina, random question for ya: what kind of waffle maker do you use? I’m in the market but there are like ten thousand different waffle makers out there. So thought I’d check with a real foodie for some tips :)

      It’s a Waring Pro. I think my husband got it from Sam’s Club at the time. It’s a belgian waffle type and it has 2 waffle spots that you can rotate so you can cook 2 at once. It honestly looks like something you’d find in a cafeteria or hotel, haha. But it is convenient :)
