I am so glad I saw your post tonight. I am new to the primal lifestyle and I can't seem to not eat tortilla chips. They have been my go to food when I am stressed. I need to stop eating them!
Thought I responded to this but don't see it! I'm not very techy. This is my first forum that I plan to be involved in. Anyway, Faith, I hear you. It's tempting because a lot (or most) of local chips are made with no preservatives and just corn, oil and salt - gluten free. So it seems like it would be a good "cheat"! BUT, to the other's points never considered the source of the corn and also the oil. Power on with no tortilla chips!
Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

Interesting that I feel good mentally that I've eaten very well since last Friday and the tortilla chip debacle, but I'm feeling pretty bad physically today. Down in the dumps, no energy and an on again off again sinus headache. Bummer. Anyway, here's my eats:
Before workout: 1/2 grapefruit and half banana
After workout - big steamy bowl of homemade chicken stock with 4 oz chicken, wilted spinach and mushrooms, salt and pepper - oh so yum!
Lunch: two lamb sausages from Prather Meat company with leftover sauted greens in coconut milk (got that greens recipe on one of the paleo sites and it's REALLY good). Some time when I have a few minutes, I'll try to find the link
snack: handful of raw almonds, two squares 85% dark chocolate
Dinner: leftover two lamb sausages with sauted greens and coconut milk, one square of 85% dark chocolate
Aaargh. I need to read Mark's book again. I did the paleo tracker and I have a 8.5:1 Omega ratio for the day. Can't remember what that means, but according to Paleo tracker it's not good. Anyone know what causes this?

Julesy-love your detailed menus you've listed here. I have never been all that interested in cooking. I tend to "just grab something" versus all the awesome meal planning I see on this site. I think a key for me is to stop working so many hours. At least I did not eat tortilla chips today. Nor did I get chips at the cafe at work which is huge because I love the salt and vinegar ones too. I think I need to do some meal planning and start there so I have something always available rather than just grabbing something. Thanks for the inspiration.
