52 Weeks of Paleo : Week 10

I spend a lot of time worrying about all the times I DON'T follow paleo and not really focusing on when I DO. Sooooo...yes, ice cream...but NEVER fries. And yes, occasional tortilla, but also better choices and more veggies and fruits. Yes, still have a long way to go, but also making better choices and doing better.

I was checking out my cookie recipes yesterday, trying to find out if coconut flour and almond flour were interchangeable (no), and I came across an article that was all : ALMOND FLOUR IS BAD BECAUSE PHYLATES (or something) and also TREATS ARE NO GOOD, ONLY IN MODERATION. Which, of course, made me look up the badness of almonds, and there are a lot of views. Some lists say no to almonds AND green beans and some say yes and some say PHYLATES!!!! Or whatever. But definitely many are all about getting away from food because BAD FOOD MAKES YOU FAT!

I mean, they go on about HEALTH, but it all comes down to fat.

And I'm so OVER IT! I just wanna eat and enjoy it. And I just want to upgrade what I'm eating. So, I'm going to keep on keeping on, taking little steps to a larger goal, and not reading any more of the political drivel involved in the paleo diet stuff.

  1. I totally agree. I have not been enjoying the paleo path because I feel so guilty if I eat something non-paleo. And you're right, it's all about the FAT. We'll damn it, I am fat, a doctor even put MORBIDLY OBESE in his report about my physical. We'll that was years ago and I am not dead. Like you I just want to enjoy food, and not feel guilty! So yes, new goal is to eat good food, paleo or non-paleo - fruits & veggies but yes a little grain now and then.

  2. Ugh, that is exactly why I don't like reading health food articles. Half of them (or more) read like crazy conspiracy theories about what we should or shouldn't eat, and the "dangerous" things in food that probably are completely harmless.

    1. Yep. And it's not actual science. It's fads and popular opinion.
