i recently found 2 blogs that i am absolutely smitten with:
both of these blogs are paleo, but more focused on the womanly side of paleo. i did not even know that paleo had a womanly side until recently.
recently both of them reviewed It Starts with Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways. this book is based on a popular paleo plan called “the whole30″ that is supposed to reset your body through nutrition. it’s a strict paleo plan that you follow for 30 days. anyway, i bought the book and it arrived in the mail yesterday.
i also had an horrible stomach day yesterday. so i am going to try the whole30. why not, right?
whole30 basics (these are actually just taken from their table of contents, which you can see on amazon)
- no: added sugar at all (including stevia) & alcohol
- no: seed oils
- no: grains & legumes
- no: dairy
- no: white potatoes (!)
- eat: meat, seafood, eggs
- eat: veggies and fruit
- eat: good fats, including avocados, some nuts (best are cashews, hazelnuts, macademias), olives, animal fats, coconuts
i haven’t even finished the book but i will certainly write a review when i do.
what sucks so far (erm, 10 minutes in):
- i am having decaf coffee (regular is allowed, but they say you shouldn’t have to have it – and i kinda do)
- i am having black coffee (no milk or sweetener of any kind, including stevia)
