Wholesome Whole Foods

So I started off this whole experience wanting to eat a purely paleo diet.  But as I have gone along this journey that I have struggled to really stick to this. I have had a few bumps in the road on this journey with a bout of the dreaded winter cold which really knocked the stuffing out of me for a good couple of weeks.  During this time I did manage to stick to a paleo way of eating pretty well with only a couple of moments of weakness when I just needed some “comfort food”.  Although, looking back it was just a loss of will power and not having the energy to do the level of cooking required to sustain this way of life so the cupboards were bare.

This bout of sickness knocked me about a bit and I got into a bit of a depression, that this was all just too hard….but as my energy returned, so did my motivation to pick myself back up again and keep going. I think by having this little hiccup I have come to learn not to be so hard on myself, this is a lifelong change that I’m making and it’s not going to magically happen overnight.  It’s a lot of work and motivation on my part and I’m still learning so many things and adjusting my whole way of living.

So at this point in my journey I have decided to just focus on eating only whole foods and not to be so strict on eliminating all natural grains. I’ve been doing some research into this and I think at this stage I am happy to eat these in moderation.  I feel that if I can master this I can slowly just do more and more of a paleo style. At the moment I’m probably doing about 70% paleo which I’m pretty happy with, everyone is different and has a different situation and different aims out of life and their health.

The main thing that I want to achieve by having all whole foods is to have nothing processed…no “numbers” in any food, no ingredients and chemicals that I have no clue what they are. I want to know what I’m putting into my body. So I will continue to eat lots of fresh, local, seasonal produce sourced from the local farmers markets, and stay motivated to make lots of yummy food at home. If I can achieve this I’ll be one happy camper!  So this is my story so far and I feel I can stay motivated to stick to this goal 🙂 After all half the battle is all in the mind, to keep the body a lean, mean, fit, fighting machine.

I hope that by sharing my journey it gives you motivation to make a change in your life…it can be done…one step at a time!
