Good morning bloggy world! So, The Hubs and I have been eating "Paleo" since, oh September. After much complaining, whining, craving, and general sorrow over the loss of dairy...we have decided it is not a crock of crap.
I am sure you have all seen the Paleo "craze" sweeping the nation, and laughed at your friends because who, in her right mind, gives up CHEESE?? I do. Nine months of only occasional dairy and sweet treats has rocked my body! If you don't already know what this Paleo nonsense is, let me enlighten you: Veggies, Fruits, Meat, Nuts and Seeds, NO dairy, and NO sugar (processed people, you can have your honey.)! Now, there are some more specific rules...like no legumes or beans, but that is just down right over board.
First, I dare you to look in your cabinets and fridge and read how much of your food has sugar in it...go on, I'll wait.
|Ella is also waiting...I know not what for...|
...Did you find your spaghetti sauce, your bacon, and even some of your canned veggies??? It's CUH-RAZY! Sugar is bad....it tastes so good, but it's BAD....I say as I drink my Caramel Macciato from Starbucks and type!
The effects of eating this way have been amazing. I have sinus issues out the wazoo, and since we changed how we eat they have gotten infinitely better. No bloat people! No bloat! Just in general we feel good, who knew bad food made you feel BAD? I mean should be a solid DUH, right?
In learning the Paleo "ways" I have found some AWESOME, and some not so awesome, sites that have helped me figure this out and that have recipes that make this adjustment SO much easier.
These are the best of the best:
You cannot go wrong with the recipes on these three sites. PaleOMG is very fun to read as well as Juli Bauer blogs with her recipes! She is FANTASTIC!
This Paleo/Clean eating is not for the faint of heart, yet it is how we were intended to eat. Give it a try, let me know how it goes!
Coming soon....I want to be Amy Poehler's best friend...
