Why I Eat the Way I Do

I follow a mostly Primal/Paleo Diet; I do include dairy. I'm not hard core, like a lot of people ~ I try to strike a good balance. A lot of my friends just roll their eyes at me when I won't drink their pasturized/homogonized milk from the grocery store. Or when I have to take a few minutes out of our Saturday morning plans to run by the Farmer's Market to get my raw, local honey and my eggs from pastured chickens. They think I'm crazy because I'm willing to spend so much money on beef that comes from grassfed/grass finished cows and I won't even consider eating the beef they buy at the local chain grocery store. Here's a series of YouTube videos that explains why I do the things I do and why I eat the way I do.

I do believe he makes some good points about excersise. Yes, I go to the gym nearly everyday. Its a new habit and one that I'm not convinced is a bad one. I will say, however, that I only work out at full exertion once or twice a week. The rest of the time is moderate activity. So, this does go along a little bit with what this video talks about.

  1. I knew you and I were on the same page. I'm totally down with paleo.The only reason I do not consume meat is because I only want to eat it if it is 100% natural. I do not have a reasonable source to get it so it's easier to just forget it.

    I also agree about the sun. It's so silly that we are all afraid of the sun. But I do believe in the use of sun screen on areas like the face and shoulders because they burn so easily.We are in the process of switching all our skin products to 100% natural choices. I make my own toothpaste, use tom's deodorant and only use coconut oil.Slowly but surely I will get rid of the chemicals that I believe cause all these problems.
