Today is Thursday. Once again, thankful its an ‘off’ gym day. My level of energy feels like it is at its lowest! The headache is a bit severe today too, but NO PAIN, NO GAIN… right?
I had a wake to attend tonight so once again, time is limited. Dr. Ryan had previously suggested that if I was short on time, I could stop at Moe’s Southwest Grill and eat something called a homewrecker – streaker style.
Typically the The Homewrecker burrito is served with your choice of protein, black or pinto beans, seasoned rice, lettuce, all-natural sour cream, handmade guacamole, shredded cheese and pico de gallo wrapped in a flour or whole grain tortilla. Protein options include 100% sirloin grass-fed steak, all-natural white breast chicken, grain-fed pull pork, ground beef or organic tofu. Moe's offers 20+ fresh, free ingredients that can be added to any meal.
Streaker style means it is served in a bowl, rather than a burrito. And of course, I could have all the ingredients, EXCEPT: sour cream, cheese, rice or beans.
I actually tried something new and ate mushrooms and guacamole… for the first time in my life! I always thought that if I was stranded on an island, I would die for sure due to lack of food. I am certain now that if I were hungry enough, I would eat a fish and swear it tasted like chicken!

AND, I would highly suggest holding off before eating out with others at a restaurant with nothing on the menu that suits the paleo lifestyle. After the wake, I joined some family members at a restaurant called The Retreat, and proceeded to watch them eat juicy burgers on big buns, loaded with fried onions and french fries. I drank my iced tea and prayed that they ate fast so I could get out of there. I have tried so many diets and they usually affect my family's life in a negative way, since I do the cooking in our home. If I can't eat, daily dinners come few and far between. I didn't want this new attempt to alter my way of eating or to put it bluntly 'this new diet,' to impact my family in ways that old diets had, which is why I attended the dinner. But do yourself a favor and at least give it a week before going out to dinner or attending parties where there is NO healthy food choices that suit the paleo menu.
One more note to mention... I dream of carbs! Every night, I dream of pasta and bread! I will not let my dreams break me!
