Food has a special meaning to all of us; we celebrate milestones with it, use it as a blanket to comfort ourselves in hard times and even show others how much we care about them by cooking. I am no different.
The international sign for delicious is an empty plate. We have all been there… your sitting in a restaurant and devour something amazing and find yourself wishing that you were home so you could lick the plate clean. I hope I am not the only one who loves food this much! This is my goal and hope for this blog, that I share my recipes and you devour them, look down at your empty plate and say to yourself that it was an amazing meal.
MY FOOD JOURNEY
A few years ago, I found out that my body does not play well with carbohydrates which results in a physical reaction that leaves me resembling a brown umpa-lumpa. Not lovely, not lovely at all.
Many can attest to my ability to eat. I have single-handedly put away an entire large deep dish pizza and a carton of ice cream. I refused to give up the quality and quantity of food that I eat and so my journey for THE answer began.
For me, a low-carb/Paleo lifestyle is the way to go. It allows me to eat as much as I want and indulge without the weight or guilt. I share many of my full-carb recipes because my friends would kill me if I fed them what I eat. And, carbs are pretty delicious. I just find that my body can’t handle them and I fine with that.
I have to admit that the results from this lifestyle have been amazing! I have never felt better in my life. I have so much energy and literally jump out of bed in the morning. Here are just a few of the benefits from this lifestyle:
Endless energy- I no longer require coffee or caffeine to fuel my energy. I feel like I am always wide away and ready to go.
Better skin- I have always had pretty nice skin thanks to great genetics from my parents but I have noticed a glow to my skin and tightness that was never there before.
Clarity- I know this sounds really odd but this lifestyle has led to better sleep: I now require less sleep but the quality of the sleep I receive is amazing. I sleep exactly 7-8 hours but I feel amazing when I wake up. When I am awake, I have such clarity and focus. I think this comes from the nutrients in the foods that I eat.
These are just a few of the benefits of the diet, why wouldn’t you choose to eat healthier foods that make you feel amazing? Start a 30-day challenge today to see what results you get!
May your plate end up empty and your belly always be full.
