Yet just as I write this I hear rain on my conservatory roof which is a shame as I bought a bike yesterday and was planning to pop over to my local green grocer on it to grab my weeks supply of fruit and veg. Fingers crossed it will stop later as I really need to start exercising!
As switching to paleo living is a lifestyle change, I thought I could approach exercise in the same way. Adding in small amounts of exercise into my daily routine, if I can take the bike instead of the car that is the first step. Impact sports are still out (probably forever) for me due to my knee op last year so I thought cycling may be good. I wish I loved the gym like some people but for me as I know it is for many others, its just a chore which makes me want to go less and less!!
Once I have added the cycling I want to try and add another change to add more exercise, so any suggestions for what has worked for you would be greatly appreciated!
Anywho, back to what I planned to write in the first place.
Spontaneous picnics, the suns out and you want to enjoy the fresh clean air as I did on Sunday but you only have an hour before you planned to leave and you have to whip up a tasty paleo friendly lunch that your non paleo friend and her 7 year old daughter will love as well. Now I must admit that my picnic lunch was not great, I only managed to take some boiled eggs, fruit salad and some chicken breast, then grabbed a bag of mixed leaves from the shop down the road. So we had to grab a few packets of crisps (pickled onion monster munch, one of my faves) and a box of dairylea dunkers, the jumbo tubes (oh how I love those) so as you can guess I didn’t do so well in the not eating those task. But that spurred me on to pull together a simple easy to prepare picnic menu with a range of different quick and easy ideas that I can select from and prepare in minimal time. I wish I had the time and the know how to come up with some of these amazing ideas, but for now I have to reply on the amazing paleo cooks out there who help me out greatly by sharing their ideas.
I’ve added the links to the recipes I have found, hope you enjoy 🙂
