So day seven went pretty similarly as the rest of the week, except for a huge experiment I tried for dinner. I had been checking out all of the Paleo spaghetti recipes. Now, usually recipes that try their best to not be Paleo (such as Paleo pancakes) get on my nerves. If you are trying to walk away from bad habits, why would you try to incorporate those habits into your new plan? No matter – everyone is different, and everyone does Paleo differently.
For myself, I’ve been pretty strict, to the point where, when I was contemplating Paleo spaghetti recipes, I decided to use shredded chicken rather than ground beef. I have no taste for ground beef any more. Even the thought of it doesn’t appeal to me. That may change in a while when I want a yummy burger (without the bun, of course), but for now I’m staying away from it.
The chicken spaghetti, complete with spaghetti squash, wasn’t a total disaster, but it wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever cooked. It definitely needs some tweaking. I will probably try again in a few weeks on that. When I get it right, I’ll post a recipe.
I guess being strict has paid off; I lost ten pounds in the first week. I’m still trying to wrap my head around that.
