Some time ago, we set out to eat an apple a day for a year, to see if the saying is true that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. That’s fallen by the wayside. One, because we moved and for a while it was “if you can catch it, you can eat it”, and two, because this is just not the time of year to find good, tasty apples.
But fear not! We haven’t completely cast healthy eating aside. No, we’re trying to eat better, and we’ve actually increased our intake of fruits and non-starchy vegetables. Brian picked up a book called The Paleo Diet, and when we read it, it made some pretty good sense. Basically, the theory is that your diet consists primarily of lean meats, fruits, and non-starchy vegetables. No grains, no legumes, no dairy. So we’re giving it a whirl. This means fruits and veggies galore!
It’s a work in progress, and we don’t always eat clean 100% of the time. But I figure just adding in more fruits and veggies to our diet is going to help, and will take the place of high-fat and high-sugar junk food that we used to eat too much of.
So, I’ll be updating occasionally with our progress. As always, it will be an adventure!
