No Food Porn Today

Sorry kids, we ate leftovers.  No photos today.  🙂

One of my BFF’s (also going Paleo) texted me today and asked me today if dried fruit was ok to eat. People ask me all the time if something is ok, or they call me out if they see me eating something that doesn’t look Paleo. First off, I’m not an expert.  I’m a girl who’s trying something different and telling EVERYONE about it.  Second, my answer is, I’m not going for 100% Perfect Paleo. I’m shooting for 80% Paleo and better food choices all around. I eat meat, eggs, fruits and vegetables like nobody’s business. But I also make things with maple syrup, honey, coconut flour, almond flour, tapioca starch, and other things I’m sure Cavemen didn’t have around. The point is that I’m not eating crap anymore… well most of the time. I have cheats occasionally. But then I feel like sh*t. When I eat right I feel better. It’s that simple. Sometimes we don’t know we feel like sh*t until we we change what we’re doing for a little while, and then go back to the way we used to do it and then find out exactly how bad we feel.

So now, I feel better and I look better. My body comp is changing. I don’t have to dance into my jeans, even fresh out of the dryer.
I eat more food. I eat healthier food. I have fun cooking now. We’re trying new things. I never even tasted Curry before the night we made it. I never ate Gumbo before I made it last night.  Both were AMAZEBALLS! I can’t wait to make them again.

My point is, eat what you want.  Eat what feels right.  If it makes you feel icky, don’t eat it again.

Like I told my BFF earlier today, eat the shit out the some dried fruit if you want to, I do.  But if you can get the unsweetened kind, then you can eat more of it!  And put it in Bacon Bark.  YUM.  And share with me.

Side note and confession:  I went back to Sweet Clover Market today and got every flavor of the Liz Lovely Gluten Free Cookies they had there.  Triple Chocolate Mint, Snicker Doodles, Ginger Molasses, and Peanut Butter.  I am still in love with the Triple Chocolate Mint, but let me tell you a little about the Ginger Molasses.   It has chunks of candied ginger on top.  That is all.
