My Favorite Non-Paleo but Healthy Go-To Snacks
Being completely paleo is hard. It is also not always practical. I think that if you are going to go Paleo you need to go cold turkey on bad foods and be strict for 30 days. It will not be pleasant at first but you will get used to the lack of bread, sugar, chips, etc. and if you start sneaking in non-paleo foods right away I feel like you are more likely to fail overall. I have adopted it as a lifestyle choice... I hate the word "diet" because although it actually means the kinds of food you eat by definition, people associate it incorrectly with losing weight, cutting calories, etc.... and I am not doing it for any of those reasons. I am trying to make my body feel better inside and out. When I deviate from my normal food regime I try to still stick with gluten free because I think gluten is the culprit in making me feel sluggish and bloated. The list is the following "snack" items I eat that are not paleo but I think of as guilt-free and they are honestly what keep me from reaching over and grabbing Charlie's goldfish crackers.
