In my effort to be paleo-ish, I'm definitely missing some foods. Thanks to some friends and the wonders of the interwebs, I've found some nice substitutions.
This weekend, I was introduced to these amazing gluten free pretzels. They are available on Amazon but my friends who brought them over said you can find them in some stores as well. Not paleo, but good for a snack and the calories aren't crazy high like some gluten free snacks I've found (like a cookie I got that was 320 calories for one cookie!). I even think they taste better than regular pretzels. Plus, I finally have something to dunk in that Dirty Bastard Stone Ground Mustard from Founder's Brewing.
I can't remember if I've posted about these Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chip Strussel Topping before. Danielle Walker is the blogger behind Against All Grain and her recipes are so good. These muffins are moist and delicious, plus they are gluten free, grain free, and paleo if you use paleo chocolate chips (I don't go quite that far). My family even loves these.
As for my weigh-in this week, it was fine. I'm trying to switch my focus to training and eating to train, so I won't be posting weigh-ins here for awhile. If you are friends with me on My Fitness Pal, you'll still see me logging my food most days and tracking my weight because while I know losing while marathon training is becoming unrealistic, I also don't want to swing back the other way and end up gaining again.
Do you have a favorite gluten free or grain free baked good?
