I was out-of-town the last half of this week riding my bike in the nice, warm desert with some friends. This created challenges to staying paleo, but I still made healthy choices and stayed away from dairy and grains where I could. The few meals that included grains: one included a scoop or two of rice - no problem there. One was a quick sandwich grabbed at a local sandwich shop along with some cottage cheese on the side. Well, I ate both the cottage cheese and the bread of my sandwich...I needed calories to fuel up for my ride. Sure enough, though, I felt awful while riding less than an hour later.
For one, I think this finally proves that as much as I like dairy on occasion, it's not worth the effort because I am positive now that I have some degree of lactose sensitivity. Second, I feel that the longer I eat clean, the more I feel the ill effects of less healthy and processed foods.
