Anyone Here Paleo/Primal, Grain-free, or Gluten Free?

Like Tree24Likes

Grain-free checking in, and ever since I started eating this way I've had more energy and have been consistently losing weight. It's definitely been working for me. Anyone else here following something similar? Please dish on how it's been benefiting you on your health journey!

I'm totally on board. It's awesome. I've fallen off a bit recently...didn't gain any weight back but I do wanna be good again.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
I have celiac so I can't do gluten. I haven't noticed much in my fitness/weight loss journey though..

There's some good cookbooks out there for paleo. We have Paleo Comfort Foods, and my dad seems to approve when I've made stuff from it for him.

The biggest challenge with paleo is variety. It's real easy to fall into a pattern of eating the same things over and over because they're easier to make, or cheaper. I guess that's true with anything though.

I eat a combo of primal, low sugar, low carb. I have greatly reduced grains, cereal, bread, rice, pasta, beans, sugar but still have them in limited amounts. I also limit processed foods and anything out of a box.
I feel much better, lighter, more energetic, more alert with this way of eating.

Not trying to be mean or sarcastic I'm serious, but my mind goes blank when I try to eat like that, I can't figure out what kind of meals to make.
Meat, fish, eggs, fruits, veggies, nuts. Foods that are whole, unprocessed, not out of a box. Things that a caveman would eat. Minus the mastodon. : )

I actually need to add a few carbs in because I have lost a bit too much and I'd like too gain a little back

Give me a sample meal lolol
Sample meal for me murr

Meat, veggies (either steamed, sauteed or a fresh salad with fruits and nuts and cheese).

Sometimes I'll have rice or pasta or bread. I LOVE BREAD!!!!!! If I was magic, I would turn bread into a protein.
Meals are easy. Last night I had homemade spaghetti sauce, meatballs, cabbage noodles, and a huge salad with homemade blue cheese dressing.
Tonite I'm making salmon patties with roasted veggies (sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, carrots, broccoli, and walnuts).
Cabbage rolls, chili, soups, stews, baked fish with a parmesan nut crust, buffalo chicken, rosemary chicken, shepherds pie (mashed cauli instead of mashed potatoes), tuna salad, chicken salad. I could go on and on.

but what is cabbage noodles

how does one roast veggies?


how does one bake fish with a Parmesan nut crust ?

no seriously, how do you roast veggies?
Ok, so you don't cook at all?
I just meant that cooking primal/low carb/low sugar food is no harder than cooking any other food.
Cabbage noodles are just cabbage sliced into strips and boiled in water til tender. They are used in place of regular pasta.
roasted veggies - any veggie you choose (fresh or frozen) tossed with a little olive oil and any herbs or seasonings you like. Then put them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake until done (stir every 20 min or so). Some veggies take a half hour, some an hour. Roasting really brings out the flavor of veggies.

I love to cook and you all can come over my house any time. : )

Real food. Fruits and Vegetables in the produce section. Meat. Fish Eggs. Are much better for you, and less fattening, than foods that are very starchy like pasta, potatoes, bread etc.

The worst foods to eat are those that come in packages with a seasoning packet included and such.

Foods that are processed, instant, pre packaged, easy to cook, etc, are loaded with preservatives. Preservatives works against your body. They actually slow down your metabolism. Sadly children that grow up eating crap like that are at a disadvantage from the start. Their metabolism is being stunted in childhood making them doomed to be overweight as adults.

The key is to shop mostly on the outer edges of the grocery store. Limit yourself when it comes to the stuff in the middle. Don't even go in the frozen section unless you're only buying veggies! Or veggie burgers

Roasting vegetables:

Cut up some carrots, green beans, peppers, squash, maybe a few tomatoes, whatever veggies you like - put them all in a roasting pan, shake some Mrs Dash on it (they have a bunch of flavors and they're salt free) drizzle with olive oil, stir to coat it all, put in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.

You want chicken? Put some in a pan on medium heat with some Italian dressing. Cook about 10 - 15 minutes (til you see the bottom edges turning white) and flip it. Once its cooked halfway throw some dried cranberries and walnuts on top to cook the rest of the way. Very easy. Make some rice and green beans. Boom. Dinner.

Cooking doesn't have to be complicated. Get a crock pot and look up some crock pot recipes. Makes cooking even easier!

Processed food is not good stuff. Bagel bites will kill you, man.
