One Week Paleo Challenge

First of all, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! it's the year of the snake.  If you can read Mandarin, you'll be able to appreciate this.

"朋友您好,為了你好,
請您坐好,用心聽好。
錢多錢小,夠吃就好。
人醜人美,順眼就好。
人老人少,健康就好。
家窮家富,和氣就好。
老公晚歸,有回就好。
老婆嘮叨,顧家就好。
父母健在,福報最好。
翁姑兩老,有了是寶。
孩子從小,就要教好。
博士也好,賣菜也好,
長大以後,乖乖就好。
房屋大小,能住就好。
名不名牌,能穿就好。
兩輪四輪,能駕就好。
老闆不好,要忍就好。
是是非非,不理最好。
一切煩惱,能解就好。
堅持執著,放下最好。
人的一生,平安就好。
不是有錢,一定會好。
心好行好,命能改好。
孝善二行,原來最好。
誰是誰非,天知就好。
修福修慧,來世更好。
說這麼多,明白就好。
天地萬物,隨緣就好。
很多事情,看開就好。
人人都好,日日都好。
你好我好,世界更好。
今天立春,蛇年啟動!"


If you can't. I'm sorry.  Let me tell you about my Paleo Challenge.

As you would know. maybe.  As you're a keen reader and keep up with all my posts *cough*.. I was going to do a Lent Challenge. Then I decided I'd do Paleo and thought ok 40 days without pasta and oatmeal is ridiculous.  So I had thought that a 2 week challenge like my other ones would do....then I started it yesterday and thought 1 week's the maximum I can do. 

I don't know why I'm just hungry all the time.  Protein and veggies don't fill me up. 

So what am I allowed to eat?

Meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts.  Olive oil, coconut oil.  In terms of baking pretty much just coconut flour and other nut flours like almond flour. 

Some starchy root vegetables are off the list, like potatoes, god knows why.  And peanuts. No potatoes, no peanuts, everything else yes. 

There are some stuff that I'm meant to eat in moderation, like other starchy vegetables such as sweet potatoes.  And limit my fruit intake because of the sugar content.  No it's difficult enough.

It's tough so far, two days in, and I'm starving.  Vegan and Gluten-Free were nothing.  I miss my pasta.  Wish me luck.
