Food Diary - AIP/Paleo diet
So a month ago I started my version of the AIP/Paleo diet. I was tired of feeling crappy while awaiting my gastro procedure because I was certain something had to be wrong with me.
Fast forward to a month/today and things have improved.
My skin has cleared up. I was starting to get cystic acne that made me beyond self conscious.
I don’t feel bloated all the time or swollen.
I’ve lost 7 pounds and most importantly I have more energy.
You can read about what the diet consists of but a brief overview is no sugar, grains, processed food, or dairy. Now I eat proteins, veggies, and fruit. Sometimes I hate my new way of eating because it’s harder. I never realized how much sugar was added to EVERYTHING! Like everything people.
I have cheated because I love wine some days and coffee is a must for me. I make sure to add nondairy creamer with no sugar of any kind. Isn’t as good but I am slowly getting used to it. There are still things I need to get better at with my new way of eating but I feel excited about feeling even better and energized.
This pic is our my dinner last night. I made hamburgers with organic grass feed beef, pan cooked paleo bacon (did you know they add sugar to most bacons?) sautéed red onions, cut up some avocado , wrapped my burger in lettuce and topped it off with a drizzle of my homemade balsamic dressing. Yummy yes and I felt satisfied when I was finished! A win win.
Thanks to my bestie @lauramatzen for sharing this way of eating with me.
A few good cookbooks to refer to if you wanna check out this way of eating:
3. Can’t find a handle for them but the Healing Kitchen Cookbook.
Oh and I am not trying to make anyone feel bad about their way of eating. We are all adults and can make our own decisions. I just thought I’d share my journey since I felt so helpless not that long ago. ✌🏼😘
