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.
As we discussed yesterday, being a locavore doesn’t necessarily limit you to eating local. I pride myself on living a locavore lifestyle, including my eating habits, wellness habits, and my exercise habits. Yes, you can exercise locally, and today we’re going to discuss how.
Conservation Fitness Head Start certainly has a focus on nutrition and exercise. But it’s important to remember fitness and wellness go hand in hand. You can take care of your body, mentally and physically, by practicing a locavore lifestyle.
I can’t argue that a vegetarian/vegan diet has the best impact on the environment. But it may not be the best diet for every person. One thing all these eating plans have in common is they can be made exponentially better by eating local.
I’ve become so familiar with eating lifestyles that sometimes I forget other people may not have heard of one before. Such may be the case with the Locavore diet.
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.
