I have linked to both The Butcher Box and CircleC Family Farms on this blog but I am here to share some frustrations. First of all, there is a learning curve about GF meats. No one told me that. Maybe I didn't know to look for more information. Here is what annoyed me and then how I fixed it ... so far. Be sure to read that part ... it's important!
For the first month of my journey I didn't really miss pasta because I was feeling so amazing! But, as time went on I wondered if I could slip in a pasta dish without messing with my success. Well, I wasn't really up to even part of a day of not feeling well so I opted to stay true to the plan.
A couple more weeks of no pasta led me to a Bulletproof recipe using Shirataki "pasta" in an unusual form. Here's the link - you may have to sign up with Bulletproof (for free) to access the link - but you will also find a wealth of recipes and information! Shirataki Noodle Recipes
Now, in all fairness, I have not tried any of these particular recipes, but one of the recipes is planned for today. Stay tuned for my thoughts!
Here's a link to why Shirataki noodles are so awesome, according to Bulletproof.
I will make something using Shirataki noodles for dinner ... lunch will be chicken thighs with cauliflower rice. Recipe.
How easy is it? It's not, but I love doing it so it's easy. Make sense? Once I resigned myself to doing the best I could the building blocks to feeling amazing fell into place. Granted, my blocks tumble now and then, but never fear ... just start again.
With all my ducks in a row, I start planning my shopping list, menus including recipes from both The Plant Paradox and Bulletproof diets adjusting them to my sensitivities and my husband's likes and dislikes. Challenging? Yes, but also invigorating! We were on our way!
Let's go ...
So, I have been challenged by my decision to follow the Bulletproof diet and The Plant Paradox diet. Allow me to be very clear ... I have read several books from both authors, Dave Asprey and Dr. Steven R. Gundry and finally understand.
I'll make this really simply ... eating this way is not difficult - most of the time - but understanding the difference between low carb / Keto / Paleo / Anti-Inflammatory and Bulletproof and The Plant Paradox is key to success.
While millet is lectin-free, gluten-free and anti-inflammatory, it should be eaten in moderation. It is recommended in The Plant Paradox but not on the Bulletproof diet, but sometimes I just crave a grain and millet does not bother me ... so far.
Makes about 3 1/2 cups
My journey with food has been just that ... a journey. Until recently, I struggled with binge eating though not to any extremes short of annoying me, but as I approached my seventies I realized my belly was telling me something. I was diagnosed with IBS years ago but when I removed some stresses from my life it went away. Stress is not my friend. Learning to manage it - or in some cases removing it - has made the biggest difference.
