I recently started CrossFit and in order to not kill all my gains at dinner, I need to change my eating style. The problem? I <3 carbs.
I love ice cream and candy and potatoes and rice and all of those things that are so not conducive to a healthy, athletic life. I've read the general literature on the Paleo diet, but what I need are the OMGAMAZING recipes that will make me forget about all the cookies and french fries that I'm missing. I need this to be a lifestyle change, not just a diet but my willpower is weak in the face of Ben and Jerry.
Difficulty level: I don't eat a whole lot of meat for ethical reasons. I'm fine with sustainably raised meat, but it's pricey so I tend to stay mostly veg. Eggs and tofu and such are totally fine. I'm willing to trade cooking time for cheapness. Things I can cook ahead of time and freeze win bonus points.
