I want to introduce to you some new ideas for your pantry! It’s crucial that you’re supporting your training regiment with fully healthy foods. This article I’ve included talks about a “paleo pantry” which is a nice way of stating, in my opinion, these are timeless foods which will not come and go with fads. Some of these you will have heard of and others will need a few moments of your research to see if you’d like to incorporate them.
5 which top my personal list are:
Coconut oil: you can cook with it, moisturize with it, make a tooth paste, use it as a career oil for essential oils, etc. Very versatile and should be a staple.
Bone broth: if you cannot make your own, incorporate quality bone broth whenever possible. These gelatinous and healthy grass food fats are a must!
Grassfed Butter: like I said, fats are a must. Consider adding grass fed butter to your morning cup of coffee to make it “bulletproof.”
Nut Butters: peanut butter with its molds is a thing of the past in my household. Fresh ground raw nuts make adding nut proteins and fats easy on veggies or bread.
Raw Milk: cooled right from the cow is how we drink it. Inquire where you live to experience real milk. http://nourishedkitchen.com/10-reasons-drink-raw-milk/
My subsequent challenge to you is to make half your week gluten-free! Even if you don’t have a tested and proven gluten allergy, that pesky substance is probably making you more tired than you realize. Consider which 3 DAYS OF THE WEEK you can be gluten free.
It could be that even our food decisions effect us spiritually. Let’s use our full capacity to master our body by correct use of our mind and spirit. Today, stick to your “why” as you make food choices. “Why” are you eating that? Be intentional!
Choose the high road=the most nutrient dense real foods.
(Sitting here wishing I’d had my bulletproof coffee with spinach and gruyere eggs, instead of two pieces of toast.)
Everyday is a new day in which we wake in the Light of Christ our Life.
Bounteous health to you,
