Health & Happiness Collective
The Health & Happiness Collective Blog Hop has been hopping along quite well – I’ve been really enjoying the variety of ideas so far on Change and what it means to my fellow bloggers – truly inspiring.
Today, Sarah, from The Wellness Ninja, takes a look at the concepts of a Paleo Diet. I’ve been reading a lot lately about this particular diet as many people are now aware of it, it’s also listed on best seller lists, so it’s definitley popular. What I have been noticing though is that there are many different interpretations of what is a Paleo Diet.
I really enjoyed Sarah’s take on what constitutes living like a Paleolithic man. It is so incredibly accurate – I loved it!!
I suppose a lot of the reason that I like Sarah’s blog so much, is that it reinforces exactly the style of diet I have been maintaining for a lot of my adult life. Growing up on a farm, the majority of our food came from the paddocks (or fields for those of you who grew up in a different country to me!).
If we didn’t grow it, or harvest it from within a 2 hour drive from home, we didn’t get to eat it. Yes, we preserved fruits when they were harvested in season near home, and yes, we froze meat once our nice friendly animal was raised and ready to harvest (apologies for the vegetarians out there, but it was our protein source, free range, grass fed, hormone free, kept on the best pasture as the animal was to be our food, never moved with the use of dogs barking at them, always allowed to have a peaceful lifestyle).
Enjoy reading Sarah’s blog, pop over and have a great big smile at the video at the end of her blog – that was an awesome find – love it!!
