As I dig deeper in the books I am soaking up on the Paleo diet or lifestyle I am cooking more than I have in years. Why? Well it is really difficult to eat zero processed type foods if you do not cook. I am absolutely enjoying the whole process. I just wish I had more time.
I am roasting tons of different vegetables. I have realized that prior to reading this book and being mostly vegetarian the bulk of my fruits and veggies seemed to be fruits. I do love my sugar.
Roasting the vegetables brings out the sweeter flavors so it has been a quite happy marriage so far.
And in the midst of all this yummy roasting and eating meat again I have been cooking double batches to save time in my busy mom life.
And something crazy happened…. I ran out of storage containers!
I had to turn off the oven before I finished the rest of the veggie roasting to get more of my favorite freezer containers.
I use two, the Rubbermaid 12-Piece New Premier Food Storage Container Setand the Rubbermaid Glass Food Storage Container Set with Easy Find Lid . Any thing that my grade school son may take out of the freezer goes in the plastics for sure, I would have for him to break a toe trying to get some cooked ground turkey!
Anyway, as far as progress. I am sleeping better and am more energetic. If this makes sense, my insides feel better and I feel more peaceful. I am four days away from the time when my PMDD will kick in full blast. And if you have ever experienced this your will know what I am talking about. Time will tell. Peace to all of you!
