    Struggling with the morning routine

    PaleOMG has a wonderful puréed carrot ginger soup. It's is quite lovely, warm, comforting and delish! I can't link the recipe because I am tech challenged, but a google search "paleo carrot ginger soup" will bring right there.

    Maybe a hearyt soup instead of a smoothie ( drink froma thermos?) and some protein.

    Day 18 Still Extreme Fatigue

    I was wondering why are you having snacks? Are you hungry between meals? Seems like you are low on fat in each meal and your meals should be large enough to last you until your next meal (several hours in between). If you are truly hungry between meals, you can have a mini meal of protein, fat and veggies but then use that information to increase your meal size next time. You are aiming for three meals per day. (Unless you are needing to gain weight or need extra calories you can add a 4th MEAL).

    coconut water?

    It should be thought of as fruit juice. It's tricky marketing that made it be called "water"

    I have Well Fed and Practical Paleo but many recipes are heavy on nightshades. I also check out paleOMG and nom nom paleo,online. Looks like I should try some game meats for more variety. I can eat canned tuna every now and then. I tried to steam salmon (feeling adventurous) and I couldn't even take one bite, the SMELL, awful! Lol! (Worse than a child I am) I'm still hanging in...going to browse my cookbooks agin and see whst I can try. Thanks

    I am hungry when I sit down to eat but a few bites in and I'm FEELING done. I'm sure it's mental! I don't have much variety, trying reduce FODMAPS, nightshades, raw veggies and eggs. I don't like seafood or fish and not a fan of pork so mostly chicken and beef for me. I am trying new recipes but I'm not a very good cook so when it doesn't turn out well it's also discouraging.

    I too am experiencing this. I am missing "lighter" meals. I am cooking all my veggies (IBS) and miss just having a quick piece of fruit or bowl of cereal. This morning I dumped unsweetened applesauce on my turkey sausage and turnip fritter so I could eat it. I also am not feeling "mentally satisfied" ith my meals, they are nutritionally satisfying but leave me feeling unsettled I guess. Been feeling antsy after dinner instead of fulfilled. On day 17 today, thought I'd be farther along in my head than this by now...thinking I will need more than 30 days.....

    Help! Digestion problems...

    It must be the fat intake. Avoiding nuts and nut butters, IBS protocol. I am going to find this kombucha stuff and try it. These symptoms are my motivation to begin with so to see them worsen (although ISWF says they will) is difficult. Thanks.

    Help! Digestion problems...

    I'vebeen hearing about Kombucha...would this help speed up the healing process in the gut? I'm felling like I can't even hold my bowels right now.
