I grew up in a household where there were no restrictions on what we could eat. In other words, snacks were not always healthy… chips, soda and cupcakes were a childhood favorite!
However, no restrictions did not allow me to dictate to my mother what I would or would not eat at our family dinners! In other words, if I didn’t like what mom made for dinner, she was not about to make something else just to appease me! If I didn’t eat what she made, then I would just go hungry until the next meal!
Actually, most of the time, mom did make good and tasty meals, though usually our meals focused mainly on meat and potatoes and oodles of noodles!
Yet, looking back to the beginning of time, I find that we were originally meant to be vegetarians – eating only foods that came from seeds… meats weren’t actually introduced until after the flood of Noah!
So, with this thought in mind, I was definitely willing to experiment with a vegetarian eating plan, however, my doctor advised against it due to my digestive disorders.
Still, I want to eat healthy, and I want to try to heal my body with the food I eat.
Am I willing to stay the course to bring about said healing? Yes!
So, what shall I be eating?
I plan to eat 5-6 smaller meals during the day, and focusing on eating REAL food – nothing processed here, unless I am processing it by cutting, dicing and slicing!
Foods will include the following:
- Healthy fats and oils such as olive oil and animal fats etc. All butters, such as ghee (clarified butter), coconut butter, and nut butters, olives, nuts and seeds, avocados and coconut milk.
- Proteins: fish, eggs, chicken, beef, turkey
- Fresh and dried herbs and spices
- And some homemade pantry staples such as my homemade bone broths which you can find out how to make here.
My plan is to start this coming Sunday at sunrise.
Still, any time we change our eating habits, our bodies react – and sometimes not in a good way! So, to minimize any withdrawal symptoms, over the next few days, I will stop cold turkey of all sweets. And, I will drink about 8-10 glasses of water a day. This will help to flush out any toxins and minimize the withdrawal side effects.
I have to admit, I am looking forward to getting healthy again! So, here’s to eating what heals me!
Until next time,
Peace, love and safe travels!
