Ok, I’m equally excited and nervous about this challenge. My friend Kat set it for me, and together we are going pure Paleo for the month of February.
What does this entail? Well, I have written a post about the Paleo lifestyle. Read about it here.
Basically, a Paleo lifestyle is about cutting out inflammatory foods and ingredients that the body is not designed to consume or metabolize.
If you want the condensed version of what I will and won’t be eating, check out this table:
|Okay To Eat||Avoid|
|Lean Meats||Processed Food & Sugars|
|Nuts & Seeds||Starches|
Regan and I eat a diet that is reasonable close to Paleo already. My biggest concern is dairy (I like to cook with butter) and sugar (I do enjoy chocolate, and even the best quality dark chocolate from the store has sugar in it). I will be making all my own raw treats and chocolate from now on. So, here it goes. Wish me luck!
