Tomorrow is the day I start the 30-day Paleo challenge, and I feel ready. In fact, I feel so ready that I might have just started today, except that my mom brought over several ears of corn for us this morning, and (being of Iowan birth) I can't think of any reason not to eat them all up. The best part of morning corn delivery is that the reason Mom is shedding corn is because she's planning on doing the challenge with me! This is great moral support, and it's practical, too, because I know we will be having at least a couple of meals at their house in the next month.
My sister was thinking about joining us, too, but I haven't heard her final decision. She was afraid she might starve to death because she can't eat any of the foods she normally eats, and I completely understand that concern. In fact, what she might not know is that even if she does come up with enough calories to sustain life, she might still feel hungry all the time. (But don't let that stop you! I hear it goes away eventually!)
Actually, the main reason I'm feeling so confident about this right now is that I whipped up a batch of Paleo ranch dressing yesterday, and now I know that if all else fails, I can always have a salad. I also made stuffed mushrooms, which are delicious. They're more a snack than a meal, in my mind, but it's comforting to have something easy and tasty waiting in the fridge.
