So how are we doing? The first few days were hard. It's better now. I haven't had headaches in months until now, while weaning off of sugar.
I am in the kitchen a lot more, without grains in the picture I find myself making a lot of veggie dishes and we're eating so much more veggies now than before. I find myself going from making breakfast, rolling over to lunch and dinner - it takes some time and I've ended up working at night instead. Funny how much time pasta, rice, and bread stand ins saved. It showed on our health though.
Despite the fact I'm getting less sleep (I know, bad), I feel so much better! So does my husband. Our digestive systems are working well. You just feel lighter and have more energy when the bulk of your food intake is protein, veggies, and good fats! Good fats are actually essential for proper function of your brain, especially important in growing children. Hm, so would that mean a low-fat diet would lower your I.Q.? ;)
Grains and sugar were our crutches, I just can't believe how long it took me to realize that. Sure, I was making everything from scratch, but that doesn't change the grain and sugar to something else.
Coming soon are grain free recipes and photos of Baby E's teeth!
Are you addicted to grains and/or sugar? Attempting to eat more plant, protein, and [good] fat based diet?
