We have decided to reset and commit 100% to eating a paleo diet in the run up to Christmas this year due to struggling with a bit of the November blues. This simply means that all our meals will be based around fresh free range meats, fish (wild caught where possible), leafy green veg, microgreens, fruit (low carb options only), nuts and seeds and good healthy fats. We will use lots of products from our online shop to show you how easy it is to work a paleo diet into your life and hope, as we go, to be able to share some of the symptoms we have struggled with and how they improve as a result of changing up our diet. We would love you to share our journey and tell us of any improvements in your health you have experienced as a result of changing up your diet and cutting out processed food. The more we can share these experiences and learn together the more we can do to help each other feel better and move better.
Paleo Reset Day One looked like this:
Woke Up at 6am - How cold?? Check out the pic of the roof of our garage taken a few hours later -
Drank .5L hot water with lemon to warm up, Ted (the dog) also came up to sleep on our bed as Mike went to the wholesalers at 5 am!
Breakfast: Poached organic free range eggs with blueberries, apple, organic microgreens and whole almonds
Lunch: Chicken Fajita Salad with Hunter and Gather Horse Radish Mayo
Snack: Cooked Chicken, Apple and slices of avocado
Supper: Grilled Salmon with roast green beans (or runner beans as we did not have any green beans)!
Drank a further 2L of water throughout the day.
Tired and achy but happy to be pushing the paleo reset button again - have also resurrected my journal and started a 100 day project to write again each morning, regardless.
Dance class this evening, will keep you updated!
