Day 1 of my self-imposed challenge did not go so well. I didn’t have time to shop and had to survive on bananas and peanut butter through the day. Neither of those foods were on my “Perfect” list, but I still consider the day a success since I didn’t eat and dairy, wheat, soy, or corn. Dinner consisted of a garden salad with a 3 oz rib eye steak and organic acorn squash.
I have included meat in my diet once again to see if I can balance my iron levels and clear up the last of my eczema. All meat that we consume is organically and locally raised at pasture. I still have the moral dilemma that comes with eating a living animal, but I am starting to lean toward the hunter gatherer diet as one that suits both my mind and my body best.
I enjoy experimenting with my diet and I’m a firm believer in food as therapy. Time will tell if meat is in my diet to stay.
Day 2 of my challenge is shaping up nicely. We just received our local organic food delivery and there are plenty of fabulous fruits and vegetables at my disposal. Breakfast consisted of a smoothie made with bananas and almond butter and lunch consisted of a few pears. I’m not too hungry today, so dinner will likely be a large salad!
