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.
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.
I guess it’s suiting I paired two topics I’m very comfortable talking about together. When I think of all my blog posts on Eating Green and healthy living, Paleo would probably be the number one topic I’ve discussed as far as diets. Palm oil would just be my number one topic, period. I talk about…
Ask a health coach their number one recommendation for eating healthier, and they would say eliminate processed foods. Press further and they would say eat foods available in their natural form. Cutting out foods made in a factory and not by our own hands is healthier for us, and it’s better for the environment.
Today ended Keto week, and I already have started my preparations for Week 3, Paleo. It’s interesting how much I am looking forward to Paleo after Keto. Probably has a lot to do with my level of experience with both of them.
