My friends and family laugh when I tell them I'm aging younger and counting down to 100 yrs instead of up, in truth I feel a million times healthier in my 50's than I ever did in my 40's or even 30's. By focusing on what I put in and on my body I've been able to improve my overall health. I focus on a Paleo/Ancestral diet, believing many of our modern chronic diseases are a consequence of our S.A.D. diets (Standard American Diet). By eating what our genetics crave, our bodies are able to get back to a state of homeostasis enabling us to get everything out of life we deserve.
My ancestral diet includes whole nutrient-dense properly prepared foods while excluding foods of modern mass production. ie. processed grains, sugars, vegetable/seed oils, most products in boxes....
What I've discovered from eating this way is:
* Increased energy & libido
* Body aches have disappeared
* Clarity of focus & calmness
* Fat loss & better body composition
* Sound sleep
* Digestive health
* Skin, nails, & hair are full and vibrant
My diet does include: meats, low glycemic fruits and veggies, fatty fish, pork, poultry, organ meats, anything our Paleolithic ancestors would've hunted or gathered. Yes, I do enjoy coffee & dark chocolate :)
My background as a teacher and currently a restauranteur of a small Farm to Table restaurant aligns with my desire to eat quality foods & to educate others on a proper ancestral diet for health and longevity.
My journey of discovery continues and I look forward to bringing others along for the ride.
