So remember how I said I was going to commit to Paleo for two whole weeks?
Well… I did it! I made it two full weeks, and I feel really great. In fact, I want to stick with it. It wasn’t too hard with food, really. If veggies and meat are available, I’m fine. Happy hours and turning down beer wasn’t as fun, but I rolled with it, and it didn’t end up being that terribly difficult. However, I thought that to celebrate completing two weeks of Paleo, I would treat myself to something non-cavewoman-esque before I got back to it. So what did I pick? Frozen yogurt of course! I had felt like the froyo place by my house was calling to me constantly, so I figured that would be my one non-Paleo meal of the week.
I got my vanilla yogurt and all the toppings I wanted, and dug in. And you know what? I had my frozen dessert, and I enjoyed it for sure, but it just didn’t do for me what I thought it would. It tasted good, but after I ate it, I just kind of thought, Huh. I probably could have done without that. Not because I felt guilty, but because I realized I was craving a hard-boiled egg, not sugar or dairy. Weird how that works out. Did I change my taste buds in two weeks? Is that possible? Have you ever changed your eating habits and then realized you didn’t crave or enjoy the old foods you thought you would?
