Mantra Monday – Paleo Eating

It’s that time of year for New Year, New Me mantras, and I’m all for it! Always try and be the best versions of yourself! It’ll make for a healthier and happier you! When I talk to friend’s who are trying to revamp their life with better eating habits and more exercise I always get asked, “Why Paleo? What is Paleo? Isn’t that a fad diet?”.

That’s what a lot of people think when they hear Paleolithic, just that it’s the same old diet that everyone fails and never likes. Well I’m here to help those of you who may believes those ideals!

Paleo eating is incredible. I’ve been paleo for 4 years now and I couldn’t imagine going back! The Paleo (Or Caveman) diet isn’t really even a diet. It’s a lifestyle. A change of your thoughts on food and living. It promotes the caveman experience – Living active lifestyles and eating whole, natural, REAL food.

The Cavemen didn’t have processed foods (obviously) but just what God supplied for them. Meats, vegetables, fruits, herbs, etc. etc. And in the beginning I know how hard it is to cut out everything and imagine how to go from everything you’re accustomed to making/eating to going down to the basics but it’s doable and it works!fruits-market-colors.jpg

 

Processed foods can be very detrimental to your health in the long run which it’s why it’s best to embrace the paleo lifestyle because eventually all of the bad ingredients in foods nowadays will catch up to you and can cause some issues. Of course there are times where we indulge and enjoy some delicious pizza, pasta or drinks (Outside the paleo allowed red wine) but it’s better than the alternative of eating bad all the time with a few healthy foods sprinkled in every now and then.

Our children even eat predominantly paleo because obviously we want to promote this healthy lifestyle to them and show them that you don’t need fast food to get delicious tasting meals. It begins with us as adults to make the change for us to make a difference to the future generations.

So.. My manta this week is New Year, New You – Try Paleo! . It can make a huge difference in your life and your families, especially down the road.

Have any questions about paleo? I would love to help! Just ask 🙂

New Years Resolution

Happy New Year y’all.. I know, most of y’all see my title and think “Oh, here we go with some cliché resolution”, but NO. Hear me out..

I have a few New Years resolutions.. Is one of them to get back on track with eating better? Well, yeah. Duh. Holidays are tempting. But mainly it’s to connect more with my child and be more active.

I know I am a great Mother, but I felt like my boy needed more from me so I started reading Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids by Dr. Laura Markham and it has changed my life. It’s made me realize that I am doing so many things right but that there are some additional things I can do to make my amazing son and my relationship even stronger..

I’m not kidding when I say I’m not even halfway through the book and it has changed my life. Not only am I finding myself to be more engaged with him but I’m feeling more motivated to go out and do fun stuff with him because we’re both in sync and there’s almost NO moodiness from him or me! (Terrible 2’s?! No way! Just give your kiddo the connection they need!)

It’s only 5 days into the New Year and I’ve already been OWNING my resolutions. Eating better? Check. Being more active? Check. Building an even stronger connection with my son? SUPER CHECK. I know, this post is a little scattered and I promise I’m in no way collaborating with the book for promotions I just love how much a book has changed my perspective.

The moral of this rambling post is really go at your goals this year. Read a book, be more active, step out of your comfort zone.. Just live in the moment and cherish the things that are most important.
