Are you familiar with the Salvation Army?
But first to dream and then to do,—isn’t that the way to make a dream come true?~~ Meindert DeJong, The Wheel on the School
Just kidding. He’s going to spray sugar on his fields (if he can ever get IN the fields).
Lent is basically over and I’m trying to decide what to do now. I am feeling more and more convinced that I need to make some serious changes to my eating.
Have you ever heard of the Paleo Lifestyle? That’s essentially eating as our hunter/gatherer predecessors did. It would be no sugar and no gluten, lots of veggies and meat.
I also did a nutritional typing test on mercola.com, which seven months ago, identified me as a protein type, but when I just retook it, said I was a mixed type. Nutritional typing is helpful for achieving optimal health. Which of course is what I want.
Plus I need to lose at least 13 more pounds to get my BMI out of the overweight category.
I want energy without resorting to coffee.
I don’t want food to be a constant thought in my brain.
I want to eat foods that don’t mess up my insulin.
I want to feel well, and I want to be healthy and young, with amazing immunity in the long run.
I believe that the right foods can do it.
I’m pretty sure giving up sugar has been a good start. No food from a box is a good start. Nothing with more than five ingredients is a good start. Food the way God made it is a good start.
But where to go from here…
Or whitish grey as the case may be…
That’s a lot of fleece.
Especially for a girl who had to google “how to wash fleece” and doesn’t know how to spin.
But when I learn, and get a spinning wheel. I’ll be ready!
That’s not a sheep. That’s a Great Pyrenees named Ranger, and some kids: mine and a mama goat’s.
Apple muffins: YUM! Shredded knuckle: Not so much.
