New Diet


Posted by Angie | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 12-04-2012

In an effort to improve health and perhaps lose a few pounds we will be trying out a new diet. I’ve done a lot of reading on the Paleo Diet lately. It has me interested in implementing a few of the rules to try for us. Only because of the great success stories that I’ve read, not because I think that we have evolved from a certain type of diet over millions of years.

We will be following this diet solidly for 3 weeks and keeping track of our progress to see if it is worth implementing these changes long-term.

  • No eating out (Tough 1 for us)
  • No grains of any sort (This includes wheat, corn, rice, quinoa, kamut, etc.)
  • We will continue to eat legumes for now in moderation even though those are not Paleo-friendly
  • We will continue to eat dairy, but only raw & pastured (or organic at the least)
  • No refined sugars (honey & maple syrup are OK in moderation)
  • Exercise (mainly walking) at least 5 days a week
  • My supplements include 3 New Chapter prenatal vitamins, 2 kelp capsules, 1 Tummy Tune-up probiotic capsule, 1 tsp. dolomite powder, 1 Tbs. Sonnie’s cod liver oil

Here are some great Paleo blogs where I’ve been gleaning inspiration and recipe ideas.

Now I just need to figure out the exact date when we’ll  be starting. I’d like it to be as soon as possible but we have a couple of weekend trips coming up, both of which will probably include some eating out.
