HOW PALEO CHANGED MY LIFE
Before starting a Paleo Lifestyle, I never realized how grain, sugar, dairy and chemically processed foods affected my body.
Occasionally I will allow a little dairy into my diet. But, I only eat if it is from grass-fed, organic, and raw dairy products.
For the most part, I tend to stick with healthier home-cooked meals whenever possible. It's a much easier way to monitor what you eat.
Foods that top my shopping list are: Pasture-raised, organic, grass-fed, wild-caught meats & seafood, as well as organic veggies, berries, nuts, and good fats.
I can truly say my quality of life has improved immensely since going Paleo. I’ve been able to maintain a healthier body weight, improve inflammation in my body, and jump leaps and bounds towards fully healing my gut health after years of eating grains and chemically processed food.
The best part, I never count calories now or feel hungry and deprived. I eat until I’m full of nutrient-dense foods, and feel more content with my eating habits than ever before.
I have a passion for cooking that started at a young age thanks to my mother. Although my love for the kitchen has not changed, the way I prepare my meals has. I created PaleoGoddess™ to show how to make healthier alternatives to some of your favorite dishes and mine, and make them Paleo-Friendly.
Feeding your body, and at the same time your soul, leads to my belief that Food IS Truly Medicine.
