Paleo Promise

Hi there! I can't believe it has been 8 months since I posted to VonnieMay! Time certainly flies and lots has happened between then and now. Life is good, always busy and lots to do with so much to be grateful for and so much life to look forward to.

Well, my latest efforts of healing myself through diet are finally paying off. In my aim to lead a healthy lifestyle and prolong this wonderful life as long as I can I have adopted a Paleo Lifestyle.

Granted...its early days. I started on 1 September - a new Spring promise to myself. It seemed the right time, the days are getting warmer and its time to shed our winter coats.

Back to my Paleo lifestyle. I must say that it only took 3 days of removing Grain, Dairy, Sugar and Processed food from my diet and I already felt different. Gone was the bloating, the fullness, the tiredness, the lack of energy. As I work my way through each day, I find I don't miss those foods that were so much a part of my life (bread, cheese, know all those things that we think we can't live without!) and I find I really am enjoying a bountiful of vegetables, fruits and good quality grass fed meat.

Another positive is that along the way I have lost 5kg - and I'm only up to day 27! The main thing I have noticed is that I just plain feel great!

Another benefit is that I have become acquainted with my kitchen again and enjoying cooking, finding new 'Paleo friendly' recipes.

Here is a favourite breakfast treat - which only takes a little while to whip up - but is extremely yum!

Here is how to make it - grate some sweet potato, mix in olive oil, pepper and salt. Squish into some large muffin pans and bake in the oven until just soft. Meanwhile stir fry some chopped bacon, mushrooms, capsicums and any other veges you have hanging around. Once sweet potato is ready carefully crack an egg on top of the sweet potato and cook in the oven until done - around 5 - 7 mins, then serve up, top with the stir fried bacon, mushrooms etc and a spoonful of guacamole.

It tastes so good - and is so good for you (I sound like some cheesy commercial, I know!)

Hope you have a go at cooking this up - let me know what you think.

So - please leave a comment and let me know what you have been up to or if you have any questions about Paleo - I have researched and researched so I can certainly direct you to some great information.

Talk soon!
