And we made it!! 30 days to change the way we eat and we have loved every minute of it - so much so, the journey will continue! Low Carb Paleo has not yet cured my aches and pains, has not yet kissed good bye to growing old, thinning hair and feeling the pain in my joints.
But it has improved my sleep and lifted my mood 100% and has made me more able to cope with all these niggles in a stronger and happier way. My resilience returns and I am guarding it closely. Self -care prevails..
And that is massive!
Nor do I miss sugar or processed food. Cooking meals from scratch and combining these dishes with our own paleo convenience foods has worked. If there ever was a moment when I was stuck for meal ideas, our breads and wraps, low carb sausages and nitrite free bacon, keto pizza bases or low carb granola filled the gap. The soup maker filled another gap and finding a great easy way to start each and every day with a 1/2L of water and a protein shake meant each day started well and on plan and, in most cases, only got better.
Other folk who follow the paleo diet report the following possible health benefits:
increased energy levels
clearer skin and healthier hair
improved mood and attitude
less bloating and fewer digestive problems
fewer headaches and migraines
less joint and muscle pain
fewer colds and infections
This is enough to persuade me to keep going on this paleo journey - what about you?

I hope that you have found some inspiration amongst this blog post series to embark on your own paleo journey. Never forget that a journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step - just do it! Good Luck and.......
