Day 6 – Sunday
Another round of Memorial Day BBQ’s today… I can do this… I can do this! The first thing I did this morning was head to the grocery store and get all the ingredients for my dinner tonight. If I know there is food waiting for me when I get home, it will be MUCH easier to make it through another holiday gathering.
The ingredients for the paleo spaghetti are nothing more than ground beef, an onion, tomatoes, organic tomato paste, a garlic clove, salt & pepper, Italian seasonings, a spaghetti squash, and coconut oil. (The recipe calls for olive oil but I replace with coconut oil at the direction of Dr. Ryan.)
If you like al dente pasta, chances are you will enjoy this dish. The meat sauce tasted just like my mom’s goulash. So far, this meal is the closest thing to what I was accustomed to eating before starting my paleo challenge.
Here is the link to the paleo spaghetti recipe that I followed. He breaks it down in very easy to follow, step by step prep and cooking
I haven’t yet shaken the urge to want to shove that quick candy bar in my mouth or grab a bag of chips on the fly, but I am feeling much healthier, leaner and tighter. People are beginning to notice. My boss at work asked me if I had lost weight, and when my daughter hugged me, she made a comment that she could feel the muscles in my back.
