The transition from what I was eating more plant based to more animal based protein has been hard! A lot harder than I thought it would be. I don’t know if I’m eating more than I realize or what, but ugh . . . I’ve not been feeling great the past couple days. Though I did wake up absolutely STARVING this morning, which was a nice sign that maybe I’m getting back to normal. Unfortunately, but the time I got both of us ready and my Italian fed I had to fly out the door.

When I got to work, I wasn’t hungry anymore and about 9 I started feel nauseous, so I didn’t want to eat anything then! I did drink 2 bottles of apple juice totaling up 240 calories and probably more sugar than I even want to think about. For lunch I went to the Thai Cabin stand down the street. Tereyaki Chicken, spicy. Yum!

I felt kinda queasy half way through it. Not enough to think I was going to hurl, but slightly . . . hrmm . . . something feels funky. But I ate the rest of it anyway. It was pretty good. Rice on the bottom made it not very paleo, but it was still good.

I didn’t make it to the Farmer’s Market Saturday nor have I been to the grocery for fruits and veggies for me (which I’d rather get at the farmer’s market anyway). So right now at the house we don’t have much that I can eat. Plenty of processed shtuff though.

UGH . . . I can’t get the Italian to let go of his processed stuff.

How do you get a loved one off processed foods? (He’s not fat, he actually could stand to GAIN a few pounds.)

  1. Easy! If you are the person that cooks the meals, you decide what everyone in the house eats.I basically told my man that if I'm cooking, he can either deal with what I cook and eat it, or he can make his own meal. He'd rather not cook, so he just eats what I cook.If he comes with me in the grocery and picks up something bad to eat and puts it in the cart, I let him know if that's what he wants, it's all him. He'll have to cook it himself. He usually puts it back. lol

  2. Cook for him, but not in a "eat this or else" kind of way. Make goodies that taste good so that he'll ask you to keep on cooking.When I met my boyfriend, he ate lots of processed foods but wasn't averse to learning about eating healthier. I make him biscuits or pizza or casserole or soup etc, which are all healthy versions, and he LOVES them. He wouldn't have been able to tell the difference. I think if you start cooking things as a way to do something for the Italian, without telling him "THIS IS HEALTHY", he'll be a lot more receptive. It's like dealing with kids 😉 hehe. Good luck!And with regards to your feeling queasy, I think that's a result of any time we switch up our eating from what we're used to… since I stopped eating dairy regularly, I feel a little nauseous every time I eat more than just a taste.

  3. Thanks Sagan!I'll have to try that. Maybe he'll let me make Hamburger Helper (ick!) instead of buying the box version (double ick!)
