paleo

pa..what?
paleo.
the paleo diet to be exact...and tomorrow i'm starting it.
i'm not looking to lose weight,
i'm looking to have healthier eating habits.
so here is the basic scoop [nerdfitness]:

  • Meat – GRASS-FED, not grain-fed…which causes the same problem in animals as they do in humans
  • Fowl - chicken, duck, hen, turkey…things with wings that (try to) fly.
  • Fish – wild fish, not farmed fish, as mercury and other toxins can be an issue
  • Eggs - look for Omega-3 enriched eggs
  • Vegetables – as long as they’re not deep fried, eat as many as you want
  • Oils – olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil – think natural
  • Fruits – have natural sugar, and can be higher in calories, so limit if you’re trying to lose weight
  • Nuts – high in calories, so they’re good for a snack, but don’t eat bags and bags of them
  • Seeds - same as nuts, can be high in calories
  • Tubers – sweet potatoes, yams.  Higher in calories and carbs, so these are good for right after a workout to replenish your glycogen levels.

so basically i'm looking to eat in a healthier way,
and feel satisfied with what i eat.
i'm doing something for myself.
i'm going to try and keep it simple,
and feel much better and energized each day!
i think the hardest part of this will be nixing pasta and bread.
oh gosh...and i love sweets. this will be rough.
starting tomorrow and for the entire month of june, 
i will be eating paleo.

i. can. do it.



i won't be all over the place writing about this change,
BUT i will give random updates :)
tonight: food shopping.
time to prepare!!
