Today is Day 21 = 1/24 of our 30 day Paleo Challenge. You will post your results from 1/23/16

Today your lifestyle change continues to nourish. Looking back at  our menu choices we could all use a little tune up. We tend to gravitate towards eggs for quick protein sources, servings of fruit for our energy sources, blended drinks, bars and raisins for easy fillers.

During these last few days of your challenge your focus will be square meals. You will continue to post your meals each day to earn your one extra point each day which is your Journal Point; J=1.

Your meals don't have to be large as long as they include three out of the four choices; Meat Veggies, Fruit, Fats

Focus on a variety of animal proteins - can you fore-go eggs all together?? Eggs are SO good for us but if you are using them as your only protein source in your square meal then there is a good chance that you may not be getting the recommended daily protein grams.

Skip the fruits, raisins, and bars as quick go to meals.

Square Meal: a substantial and nourishing meal; It can be described as a meal that consists of meat, veggies, fruit, and fats.

In between Meals should be a focus of smaller meals - however I understand the need for larabars, raisins, nuts, coconut, etc. these choices are allowed - just try and change up your focus. Ask yourself are you really hungry? when did I eat last? Perhaps reaching for a smaller version of my lunch will satisfy me more than a bar or a big cup of raisins and nuts.

Good news - you continue to earn an extra point daily for charting your daily menu. That's it! Easy Peasy. You won't lose points for not eating non square meals - 10 eggs a week - or that daily LaraBar. Just change your focus this week and enjoy the down hill ride from here.
