I am new here. I have heard of the Primal and Paleo diets but I have not gone as far as to study either one yet. From what I have read though, it sounds as the Primal lifestyle is more towards my liking. I just bought Gedgaudas's book Primal Body, Primal Mind, and I look forward to hearing what she has to say.
I look forward to getting whole foods as my friend with the co-op will forage for watercress, morel mushrooms, nettles, Jerusalem artichokes, edible flowers, and numerous wild plants. I am even invited to fish and forage at their farm as well.
I am excited about learning more from this team.
I am really leery of buying anything, food-wise, from large corporates like WalMart, etc. as they have been using pink slime in their meats for some time now. I trust that they have the bottom line dollar for them, in their best interest... not me buying healthy food from them. I bought coconut oil from the health food store, but thought the price was jacked really high. I have found a mom & pop bulk supply store near by and buy reputable brand oil through them. I guess you just have to do your research...but hey, isn't that just like foraging? :)
I don't think I am going to be able to eliminate all grains from my diet. I love buckwheat, especially in pancakes (without any wheat product) with true Maple syrup. So I may continue with those, but only sparingly. I still have a horrible sweet tooth and I hope that will subside as I continue on eliminating bad carbs from my diet. I cannot believe that our ancestors didn't relish finding a bee hive every now and then so I am letting myself have the pleasure of a little honey in my salad dressings, etc., just moderately, of course.
I am so excited to have found this team and prepared to learn about this new lifestyle I am embarking upon. WooHoo!!!!
