First I read the book, "It Starts With Food" and now I'm trying to do what they say for 30 days. No sugar, no wheat, no dairy, no snacks. Eat only organic, pasture-raised meat. It's a well-written book, lots of chemistry and biology so that you begin to see what you are doing to yourself when you indulge in sugar/fat/salt/junk. I've been moving in this direction for a while but this is very strict. No sugar, NO MILK DUDS! But truthfully I'm pretty happy with the things I can eat and there is some surprising information about red meat and fat.
The first day wasn't great but it wasn't a fail either. If you go off the path you have to start over and I really don't want to start over! I signed up for the daily newsletter because I wanted the extra inspiration. I'm glad I did as the newsletter is awesome and at the end of the day I got a silly and entertaining pep talk. Anyway, Miss Nancy will be documenting her progress for the next 30 days. Stay tuned!
Creative Refrigerator Recipe
In my frig I found:
an almost empty jar of olives (black and green)
6 oz. hamburger (local, pasture-raised)
Cut up carrots. Steam cook them. Heat up a skillet, brush in a little olive oil. Fry up the burger with the onion. Add the garlic and whatever spices you like. I added cumin, salt and pepper and a dash of cinnamon. Simmer. Add carrots and then the chopped up olives, heat everything together and then serve!
