My nutrition is fantastic
. I study nutrition as a hobby (its very common to see me face down in a bunch of peer reviewed medical journals
), so when it comes to my health, my dogs' health and my cats' health... we're all on the ball... except for Tryon. I can't get her to eat anything except dry food, but I'm working on it.
But my personal nutrition goes something like this:
1. No soy, grains, starches, polyunsaturated oils
2. No dairy, as I have a casein allergy
3. Salt is ok - but ONLY unrefined (gray) sea salt
4. Good fats: virgin coconut oil, olive oil, homemade ghee (not processed ghee and not vegetable oil based fake ghee) and animal fats.
5. Only grass fed, organic meat (although admittedly this one has slid just a little over the past few weeks since I'm broke)
6. Organic, heirloom veggies.... am planning my own organic garden soon, but can't plant until september... or maybe october... I have to recheck that. Gardening people - reminder on when is a good time to plant veggies in zone 9 or 10 please? (Depending on which map you see, I'm either in the south half of 9 or the north half of 10)
In a nutshell: The closer it is to pre-agriculture life, the happier I am.
I suppose it sounds kind of restrictive, but when you start eating this way you realize it's really not. DH eats this way as well, although he also includes dairy because he's not allergic. But when you think that last night for dinner we had (bunless) bacon cheeseburgers with a side of broccoli cooked in bacon drippings, it really doesn't sound nearly as boring
It's really great. I've never felt better
