I'd like to say that I'm a stay at home wife (with a housekeeper of course), but they tell me that I would go crazy not working. I'm a thirty-something professional fed up with the daily grind, trying to find some peace and solace in the world. Sometimes the idea of going crazy because I have nothing to do sounds so appealing. I'm married to an awesome hunk of a man who puts up with me and loves doing so. I have a dog, Floyd, who is a lover, not a fighter, and has been living (and is being spoiled) with my parents for the last 6+ years. Yuma, Arizona is currently where I call home.
Just Because You Wanted to Know...
I'm following a very socially unacceptable way of eating to possibly stave off a bleak future of pill popping and self medicating with food just to make it through the day. Currently I do not eat:
Grains (including wheat, corn, and rice)
Legumes and Beans (including soy)
Refined Vegetable and Nut Oils
High Starch Vegetables (including potatoes)
Sugar and Other Sweeteners
Most Fruit (these intensify my sugar cravings)
Just About Anything Artificial
What does that leave?
Meats, Poultry, Fish, Shellfish
Beef Broth (with all the glorious fat and gelatin)
Lard, Tallow, Butter, Ghee, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil
Low Sugar Vegetables
Low Sugar Fruits (lemons, limes, cranberries)
Nuts and Coconut (on occasion)
Full-fat Cheese and Cream
Homemade Yogurt (made with half and half)
You'll find that older recipes are sometimes made with foods I don't eat at the moment (i.e. honey, fruits, and lots of nuts) but have in the past. My diet seems to change often after learning new ideas about health and nutrition and experimention to find how I will react. I incorporate principles from the Specific Carbohydrate, Gut and Pyschology Syndrome, Body Ecology, Paleo/ Primal, Nourishing Traditions, Atkins, and Optimal Diets. My healing has been steadily progressing with a high fat, moderate protein, and low carb style of eating. I can't say that this way of life is for everyone, but there are certain foods that no one should be eating (i.e. Neolithic agents of disease such as wheat, vegetable oils, high fructose corn syrup, etc.).
