It’s that time again. It’s time for another batch of Paleo recipes, but since Lee already gave you a fantastic one on Monday we will hold off until next week for another installment. I do want to address some Paleo questions we had this week and some great food ideas that have been suggested by you all. Before I get into that I want to remind everyone doing the challenge…BRING IN YOUR FOOD JOURNALS AND GET THEM INITIALED!

Our own Josh Boaz, brother to Coach Cbo and myself, told me about the BoJangle special. It’s not really a “Special” on their menu, but it is pretty special in the eyes of Paleo goers. All day long you can purchase any amount of orders of eggs and the same for sausage. Josh recommends two orders if you’re very hungry due to the large serving portions. And this awesome breakfast, lunch, or dinner will run you how much? Oh, just a measly $2.84. You can get the same type of thing at McDonald’s, only they don’t run it all day, just during breakfast time. But my guess is the quality of food is going to be much better at BoJangles.

Next, some of you have brought up Paleo snack questions. What’s something good and fast? I will say this before I list any snack ideas. It is very easy to overeat snacks. Be wary with your portion sizes. Don’t eat straight from the bag!
A) Nuts/Seeds (Remember the nut hierarchy.)
B) Beef Jerky
C) Turkey Pepperoni
D) Bacon/ Turkey Bacon (T. bacon keeps well in foil and is good cold too; I do this for hikes all the time.)
E) Celery w/ scoop of Almond/ Cashew Butter
F) Homemade veggie chips (Dehydrate your favorite veggies and spice as you like.)
G) Avacado

The sky is the limit with Paleo snacks. They are harder to come by, but a lot of time it is about creativity.

The last question I had was about sliced deli meats. This may be your “lightbulb” moment, but of course you can eat deli meats! This is a staple quick lunch for me (as far as the meat part goes). I’ll mix some mayo and mustard together, get my sliced turkey or ham, sometimes throw some romaine lettuce around the meat, and dip it in my condiments. It tastes great and is filling. It also makes for a great snack!

    Is hummus paleo? I found a really good sundried tomato and basil hummus that I eat with celery. Also, I made a really good homemade vegetable beef soup if anyone wants a the recipe. Holla!
