Its really hard to eat that many paleo calories without relying on a lot of meat (which I'm not naturally a big eater of).



I I tried the suggestion on here to strain fresh juice and its much more palatable that way. What are some of your favorite juices?
I'm glad you like it!! I usually just throw in whatever I have. Not very helpful, sorry! I aim for 50/50 fruits and veggies. If it's just me drinking it I usually put in more veggies than 50% (now! I couldn't when I started!) if DD is drinking it, or my other kids are over, then I go a little heavier on the apples if I think of it - just so they'll like it, and think they like it ;-) DD usually drinks it no matter how I make it. DH is the tricky one! If he's going to drink it, I have to make sure to add more fruits or he makes fun of it! So I usually don't mind leaving fruits out, because then he won't steal it from me!

There was a pretty red "detox" juice I tried the other day, it actually had a recipe, I'll go find it.

That sounds so yummy! But I don't think I need more calories Altho I have no idea really. I think I'm going to join myfitnesspal and try to track calories for awhile just to see where I'm at. I've never counted calories before! I'm kinda scared!

Also, breakfast! The hotel we are staying at provides continental breakfastand i can eat fruit, but id love some portable protein ideas. We will probably pick up some microwave breakfast sandwiches so that may have to do unless i can find something microwavable that doesn't have bread.
You already got awesome ideas. Our go-to's are fruit leather, nuts, clementines, hard boiled eggs, nitrate free deli meat

oh YES! A straw cup helps immensely. I often don't care for the smell of vegetable juice, but it tastes fine. So if I put it in a straw cup I can't smell it - and I love it! The kids like it much better too if they can't smell it ;-)
