I’m deepest apologies for not blogging for so long. Things have gotten hectic this new year! College has begun; I only have two classes this semester but I honestly haven’t paid them much attention (I go to class online). I’m also having some car problems that need to be addressed. Not to mention I’m overdue for a hair growth update and probably a skin update as well. Speaking of skin brings me to my next topic…
Well, I thought I was clearing up but I was struck with a horrible breakout. And my back, oh, my back! It has never been so inflamed and painful. Some of it is to blame on me; I still haven’t squashed the habit of picking at acne. But no more!
Anyways… I decided one night I would stop eating dairy completely. Then they kind of evolved into eating less refined sugars and starches. Now I’m almost at Paleo status by cutting out grains completely. What is the Paleo Diet? It is simply a diet based on that of the “cavemen”. Eating only fresh meats, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and berries.
This is madness for me because I like few fruits and even fewer veggies and I don’t touch seafood. Plus, I love carbs, cheese, and creamy pastas! It’s not going to be easy, especially living with people who don’t support your healthy diet and still want to rely on processed box foods. I’ll be honest, I don’t know if I’m going to eat this way forever. I just want to test the waters for a while and see if eating this way will stop my skin from acting out.
So there you have it; probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever done! I’m still transitioning because I’ve had some cheese and grains but that was the last of it! If you have any tips for going Paleo or quick, easy recipes please let me know.
