Paleo Challenge, v4! (week 1 food log)

We're starting the Paleo challenge at the Crossfit again this week. I'm going to try Paleo + Zone again and see how far I get with that, along with minimizing alcohol intake for the next seven weeks. I have a wedding to attend in week 4 in Michigan, so I will probably have to break the alcohol rule there. I took my picture a couple days ago, and since have been alcohol free and trying to adhere to the Zone diet.
Food log starts today, 9/10.

Food log, week 1:

Lunch -- Steak salad (~4oz?) with lettuce, a little red pepper, hazelnuts, and lemon thyme vinaigrette
Snack -- one bottle of "Just Greens" juice from Columbia Gorge Organics. 100 calories, 13 g of carb. It''s made of celery, kale, spinach, and cucumber juice.

Lunch -- 4 oz grassfed beef burger, sauteed vegetables (not sure how much. probably a couple cups) plus 6 almonds
Afternoon of snacks -- 6 more almonds, 2x Beef Jerky from Brave Horse (maybe about 3oz each?), 5 small deviled eggs. Good news is I drank water rather than wine during my snack breaks!

Dinner -- went to Art of the table with three non-crossfit, non-paleo friends and had the salad course, the cod with veggies (left the taters on the plate) and sauteed zuchini with pesto and some other stuff. Very complex dishes, so I don't remember all the details. But I was able to make it through the dinner with nothing other than water and one Dry soda to drink.
