Welcome to Almost all things Paleo…
I’m Ly de Angeles and this is all about what tastes good without any grains and no sugar. Grains are a major factor in inflammatory conditions and many digestive problems. Can be linked to diabetes and obesity, might even wreck your brain, at some stage of your life will probably (not always) cause you grief. Getting rid of it is easy. You just have to know how.
Admission 1 – I am a fussy eater (and there are some major updates come 2018 posts so hunter/gatherers? Go look. I’ll just mark that post 2018, shall I. And I’ll admit to a guilty pleasure I have quit, that has changes my health for the better, yet again).
Admission 2 – Even though everything I ate up until a while ago was awesome, and I thought it healthy, I was wrong.
This blog includes my recipes, links to cool related information, other people and groups. In the top navigation menu are all my posts, listed in categories, or you can also explore a chronological list of posts.
Going grain and sugar free
April 2014 I stopped absolutely all grains and sugar. To discover why I felt bloated all the time, listless, no energy, big belly but slender arms and legs took quite a lot of research. I know others have been down this road before me but on this I was slow. I also pretended there wasn’t a problem. I abhorred the way I felt, you see. I’d moved to Melbourne, began a new life at 60. Was this the slippery downhill slope to old age? Hadn’t I promised myself I would never become one of those docile, thick old women? How had I betrayed myself?
Turns out I hadn’t. It’s called a lack of insight. I was too busy to devote myself fully to the research until I was diagnosed with high blood pressure (probably had it for years, who knows). Then I hunted in earnest. The first book I read was Wheat Belly, then Grain Brain. From there I learned about Paleo and The Atkins Diet and then worked out what worked for me.
Oh, by the way? I asked my doctor what was causing my problems. He unfortunately thought it was what happened as one ages. Yes, a fuckwit. Doctors only do about 40 hours on nutrition their entire learning.
In twelve weeks, with more nourishment than ever in my life, I dropped 17 kilos. So, the sure thing, when you ditch the carbs (including white potatoes) your natural weight will metabolise. Even the loose skin (almost) all bounced back. There’s still a bit but that’s lack of collagen and wrinkles are a sign I’ve lived this long despite…
I now weigh in at 55 kilos, I’m working out at the gym 3 days a week so have lean muscle, the belly is flat, the bloats gone and the brain fog (for a Sagittarius with a sense of humor, a devastation) vanished.
This blog is mainly recipes but I’m also going to promote certain products along with that, like this here. Take it or leave it. They don’t pay me to do so. These products, however, are about the best one can get here in Victoria. You’ll source your own elsewhere.
Lastly: organic, organic, organic. Grow it yourself. Kill it yourself if you can, or else know how it lived. If in a state of cruelty blackban the brand and write a letter to the arseholes who think they have a right to harm others.
