So I have been preparing myself for a life change for a few months now. (Sometimes I just don't do well with sudden changes.) Grabbing books, reading articles. Picking the life style that I believe I can do with out feeling hopeless that I can't continue such a change. I've looked at Paleo, Gluten free, The Gaps diet, and the list goes on....... I am a meat eater. I love fruits and vegetables. I love Raw milk, Butter and cheese. Maple syrup, honey, Nuts, Herbs, and yes I love bread, but bread doesn't love me....I have found a few recipes that may bring hope to this bread loving girl and I can't wait to try them!
You see what I have discovered while doing my research is that I have to retrain my brain and my body back to the way God intended for it to be! I've messed up! Many times over. I've tried and failed more times than I can count....But I am still trying. I'm not going to quit trying! I long for a healthier me. I know what triggers my symptoms. I've paid attention to my body and I have learned what triggers the pain. Your body will definitely tell you when something is up! Don't ignore it! Work to heal it!
The amazing thing is, God has given us everything we need to be healthy. The herbs of this earth have natural healing powers. I've seen them work first hand! I've tried the magic pills and potions, they never worked for me! You want a cure, not a cover up!
So this is the start of my journey....this is where I go public and announce that I want to change my eating habits and kick this sugar addiction to the curb! I will be sharing recipes, Nutritional facts, before and after pictures, and remedies and tools that have worked for me.
Not really sure what this life change is called but it means that I will not be eating processed food. Only living, fresh, raw, pasture raised and organic food. You may think my options are few after reading this but oh let me tell you, there are so many things I can eat and love to eat! Remember retrain your brain!
I will leave you with one of the books I had discovered along the way. It's one that is doable and not overwhelming! (Except for the pickled tongue recipe) Blah!
I hope you will join me as I make this change. I hope you cheer me on and hold me accountable when need be. I hope that I will be encouraging to you as well!
