Spring Goal #1... Revamping our Diet
Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing a lot of research on different diets. Two Poots try to be very mindful of what we eat, but let's face it...life gets crazy and our diet drops off our radar. I knew I wanted to follow a diet that didn't have me in the kitchen 24/7. I also knew that I wanted to stay away from as much processed foods as possible and to get back to eating "real" food.
A dear friend of mind told me about Dr. Axe and this amazing Gluten Free Blog. I couldn't believe how simple and easy their suggestions were!!
Today our cookbooks finally arrived!!
I can't wait to start making some of these recipes. Poot made me these amazing Pumpkin Blueberry Pancakes and I could seriously eat them everyday!!
Don't they look delcious? I used a Vanilla Honey Agave syrup to top them off!
We are slowly taking baby steps to clean out our cabinets and get rid of the sugar and dairy. (We already avoid gluten due to my gluten intolerance.) I bought some coconut milk creamer for my coffee and coconut milk to cook with and we love them! I also bought some Steevia and Agave to replace sugar in any recipes we make. I know that is going to a lifestyle change for us, but I can't wait!
As we try out recipes I will be sure to share the good ones with you! I want to be held accountable for this new goal, so I will be sharing my ups and downs also. Now I want to know, have any of you tried these diets? Or have you eliminated sugar, dairy, and or gluten from your diet? I would love to hear any suggestions and stories you might have!!I will be back to post more of my Spring Goals through out the week!
