Relaxing from your kobold clean up efforts in the crowded local tavern, you notice the tavern maids becoming increasingly stressed, and the innkeeper seems to be arguing with a few adventurers at the bar. Quickly, news spreads through the room about what's wrong - the bar is running out of beer! And there's no bread left to go with the meals! No honey cakes for desserts! In fact, on tonight's menu seems to be "Vegetable stew - eat it or starve".

 

The small village is running out of food to serve to the massive crowd of adventurers! Some adventurers have opted to remain in town anyway, despite the lack of variety of food (it won't be quite so bad with less people), but many are hitting the road, without being able to take any purchased supplies with them, planning just to eat what they can hunt and gather along their travels.

------

 

Have you guessed this week's challenge? It's PALEO time! Your challenge is to go *one full day* on the paleo diet, as you hit the road eating only what you can find - no grains, no soy or legumes (green string beans are OK), no dairy, no sugar. Meat, fish, eggs, fruit, sweet potato and vegies are all fine. If in doubt, ask Google what's OK, or post in this thread.

 

If you're a vegetarian, or will for some other reason find the paleo diet not in keeping with your goals (or just too extreme a change from what you're used to ATM), you can choose to remain in the village, where there will still be limited amounts of bread and dairy etc. left for adventurers to purchase (at inflated costs). BUT there is *no sugar* left. So you'll need to go *one full day* with no sugar or sugar-sweetened foods. No cakes, cookies, pies, ice cream, soda. No added sugar, honey, or maple syrup etc. Artificial sweeteners are also not allowed. Fruit is fine.

 

If one of your personal challenge goals is already something like "Eat 90% paleo" or "Cut out refined sugar", then you need to do *two* full days on one of the above diets to earn your reward!

 

If you complete this challenge, you will earn +1 CON, and a warm fuzzy feeling of pride in your accomplishment. It's just a day or two, it's not forever, so GO FOR IT!

 

Pick any day (or two) this week that suits you best.

Want MORE of a challenge this week?

 

Invitation to come and play with the Druids!

 

If you are looking to do a little bit extra this coming week and it doesn't conflict with your other commitments... this is the perfect opportunity. Sign up with the Roman legions and go hunting Gauls for fame and glory (and you also get a dented Roman helmet, which you'll be able to trade in for something in the last challenge!). :)

 

This is completely optional and intended to be fun as well as encourage you to do that little extra! There won't be any additional stat point reward for joining in the Druids' challenge, but they'd love to have you.

Woop - challenge accepted! I've been thinking of instituting a grain-free day anyway, and I already don't eat dairy... my only problem is that I eat very little meat - I keep going to the shop, looking at it and not feeling like buying anything, or buying it and then leaving it until it goes bad... veggies are just so much nicer. But I'll figure it out.

 

May actually do this tomorrow as half my week this week will be very difficult to make paleo-friendly. Off to make myself a meal plan!

I've been wondering why legumes are not on the paleo diet? I'm not desperate for them or anything, but the rest of the diet makes such good sense.

Since I'm currently Primal 5 days a week, I think I'll have to go for the 2 days.  Will have to be Friday/Saturday, as I'm away with work Wednesday abd Thursday and it will be too much trouble for our admins if I change my diet now!

Challenge accepted! I'll have to go two days this week, since one of my goals is a once-a-week paleo day. BUT. I'm a vegetarian, so I'll be doing the NO SWEETENERS challenge.

 

Two days this week. No sweeteners. Gotcha.

Count me in as well!  I think I can skate by with 1 day paleo because my diet challenge was just to drop down the number of sweets I consumed, but if possible I'm going to shoot for 2 days ( gotta push ourselves, right? ;) ) of paleo eating.

I'm doing the keto diet, so this won't be too much of a change... but have to admit, the "no dairy is going to be tough"  I'm a cheese-a-holic!  However,  I will definitely make sure this happens.  Keep calm and paleo on!

Good timing!  I'm already 90% Primal, but I'm looking forward to giving Paleo a try since I think that dairy, sugar and legumes may have been sabotaging me lately.  I'll be doing 2 days strict Paleo to challenge myself.

I'm in! One of my goals this challenge is 'no sweetened drinks', so I'll be shooting for two days totally paleo. Thursday and Friday are looking good to me. 

I'm thinking of making a dairy-free pastry-free bacon and egg pie for lunches this week, so that should help me along! And I've been eyeing up a paleo chilli recipe all week. Mmmmm..... chilli.

 

Hey guys - share your recipes/sources of recipes if you make something good for this mini-challenge, yeah?

Oh, yay! I was worried my injury might keep me from participating in this week's challenge, but I can totally do a food challenge.

 

It's going to take some planning to figure out how to get all my protein in without my usual morning shake, though. Anyone got suggestions for a easy-to-make, consumable while driving, high protein, paleo breakfast that doesn't include nuts other than almonds?

I'm in for two days as I'm already doing Primal right now. So I'll just need to cut out dairy. I can do this.

 

And Starstuff, have a look at the various Paleo quiche recipes like this one: http://paleodietreci...ini-quiche.html

Aw yeah! Paleo day complete! The MyFitnessPal macro tracker is angry at me for having too few carbs and too much fat/protein. xP Eggs baked in an avocado for breakfast; a big salad with sunflower seeds for lunch; "trail mix" of cashews, hazelnuts and blueberries, a banana and an apple for snacks; grilled salmon with sweet potato and carrot mash and broccoli for dinner.

 

Though I'm not sure I'll ever go full-on paleo it's good to try out a grain-free day. I'm allergic to dairy and most grains, and while I've been successful in cutting dairy out of my diet I'm finding the grains much harder. This has confirmed how much more I enjoy a salad for lunch over a sandwich!

 

Unless I've messed up my paleo-ing, I'll have that shiny CON point if you please 8D
