Happy St. Patrick’s Day, the day they say the world is Irish. It’s my feast day, since my birth name is Patricia. Although, my celebration is a little off-kilter what most people think when they celebrate today.
Whew, I made it. Barely. It’s the end of the path, and now I’m turning off the road and heading down the highway.
It’s the most wonderfully stressful time of year! For me, it’s “Stay Away From Shopping Malls” season. It’s also a big time to celebrate family, life, and love.
One of the reasons I don’t advocate one certain diet is because I feel it’s too restrictive. Following one way of eating, whether it’s Keto, Paleo, or Vegan often isn’t very sustainable. Sustainable to your life, that is. I know, I KNOW vegetarianism is the best idea for the environment. But if I previously enjoyed…
Don’t. The end. Haha. I’m KIDDING. Of course we eat out. Same as Paleo followers, vegans, and even those on Whole30. I’m not a sadist.
I feel like all week I’ve highly defended Paleo from nay-sayers claiming Paleo’s too hard to follow. I have shown how there are easy and healthy substitutes for our favorite non-Paleo foods. I’ve shown how versatile the diet can actually be.
Processed food items have more than palm oil in them which raise alarm flags for me. Don’t get me wrong, it truly triggers me when I see palm oil in a food item. But it’s not the only reason I stay away from most packaged and processed food.
As I demonstrated in week 1, the best and most effective way to change our health and promote a healthy environment is to go vegetarian. Even it it is only one day a week, it can have an enormous impact.
This week I’m testing out my paleo menu plan for Conservation Fitness Head Start (still not sure if I’ll keep the name or not). When most people think of Paleo, they think of simply eating like a caveman. Eating natural foods, unprocessed, whole foods. They think of eliminating grains, and sugar, and dairy. It’s all…
One of the biggest complaints about Paleo I’ve heard is it’s too difficult shopping for such a restrictive diet. I know, that’s actually two complaints wrapped into one.
