    Hi Robin, So excited to start this challenge. A couple of quick questions. We don’t have sunflower butter in New Zealand, is there an alternative? and also sorry to be a pain but what would an alternative be for avocado as I am really not a fan!? thanks again, this is a fantastic site! regards Emily

      No worries at all. You can use almond butter as a sub and if you really can’t stand avocados. Try adding spinach or kale as a sub. I also have TONS of other paleo recipes on my blog that you can switch things out for. Make sure you only choose ones marked PALEO. Talk to you soon xoxoxox

    Hey Robin! I am planning on starting the 30 day challenge but I have one HUGE question to ask: I absolutely love my coffee in the morning, can I still drink it? I have substituted the sugar for locally grown honey and I use almond milk as my creamer. It’s so yummy! I only drink about 12oz a day, a tablespoon of the honey and maybe 1/4c of the milk. Can I keep this as a part of my new routine? Thanks so much!!

    Hi Robin, the recipe calls for 2 5oz chicken breast. Is this 1 serving? That seems like an awful lot. Did I miss something.
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      If you are making this for one person it will be enough for two meals :) I like to make a little more so I can have it for lunch the next day too.

    Hi Robin! I was wondering, when this challenge ends I absolutly will eat bread or cookies or something like that and my sister said that if i do that i will get fat because my body will react different because of the diet, so i dont know if this is true, can you please tell me what could happen if i eat sugar or bread or whatever that i wasn´t supposed to eat after i finish the paleo challenge?
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      Yes you will start gaining weight and go back to the way you were. The whole idea of this challenge is to cleanse out your body and live a healthier lifestyle. Also I tried eating the things I used to after the challenge and it made me sick and I actually didn’t want it anymore. Eating paleo has been the best decision and I feel so much better not eating bread and tons of carbs

    Hi Robin, I hate chicken meat! Would it be okay of I substituted in veggies/something protein rich?
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      You can sub red meat and fish instead and yes lots of veggies

    Hi! I was wondering is the 5oz of chicken before cooking or after? Thank you!!
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      I like to look at my hand as a measuring tool. If it is the size of my whole palm before cooking that is great. It doesn’t need to be exact in the oz I provided but I did want to give a guideline

    How many servings is this chicken wrap? I was wondering why you use 2 5 oz chicken breast & most other servings are just 5oz. Thanks!
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      Yes it is enough for two servings. I like making more of this to have leftovers but you don’t have to use 10 oz.
      • Katie's Gravatar Katie
        Thank! I like to make in bulk & eat on it for a few days! I am about to make this!

    Does veganaise have sugar in it? Is it Paleo?
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      I prefer all natural mayo but vegenaise is an option. Make sure you check your labels!!! Good Luck!
