It’s been quite a journey!
The quest for better health has led me in many different diet-directions over the years. When it comes to DIETS … literally, I think I’ve tried them all. Vegetarian – low fat – no fat – calorie restriction (with many different twists – complete with all the calorie counting and measuring and logging of food) and even a full 6 months eating no-fat-vegan.
I found the Paleo diet/lifestyle mid year in 2012. Since that time I have adapted to a new method of food preparation and eating that I believe has brought *and will continue to bring* good health and much happiness to all who will indulge! I know I am showing up a little late to the NON-GMO party, but as I began to incorporate strictly organic foods and eliminated pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics and other “foreign” non-foods I found my health improve dramatically. Immediately.
So … what I am passionate about is CLEAN eating: My personal RX for almost any ailment is an ORGANIC-PALEO diet. Of course, you’ll hear more about that later 😉
I am completely convinced that “clean”/organic eating is responsible for my continued improved health – not to mention better energy/better sleep/no food cravings/no swelling & edema/no shortness of breath/no heart palpitations/no allergic symptoms/no cold-hot flashes/no uncontrolled sweating (I will spare you a complete list) …. and as you might guess, I want to share this great feeling with the world. I had not realized how very sick I had become until I finally surrendered to nutritious eating.
My biggest frustration has been in sourcing good, fresh, organic, nutrient-rich ingredients. I have found that organic – clean – paleo eating does not have to be complicated or expensive. I hope I will be able to demystify my newfound love of better health through better food and share some of the wonderful tasty dishes with recipes with this blog …. so more can enjoy the benefits along with me!
