My amazing mother-in-law, along with several others have helped me in trying to change my diet and eat foods that can make me as healthy as possible. What I am sharing with you is not an “anti-cancer” diet or even foods that can cure cancer, but simply diet choices that I’ve made to help me get and stay as healthy as possible.
If anyone knows me, you know I am a HUGE foodie. I love food. Pasta, pizza, mexican, ice cream, sweets…really healthy food. Yeah, right:) So, this undertaking of changing my diet was literally a 180! Listed below are the diet changes that I have tried to stick to, along with some recipes that somewhat satisfy my sweet tooth.
I do believe that God gave us so many natural things to keep us healthy and strong. I know He desires for me to be healthy…that my body is His temple, and I am committed to taking care of it. This has been a lifestyle change for me. One that has affected my husband and a diet that I hope and pray to raise my children up in. I desire for them to live long, healthy lives as well! We do somewhat have control over that with our diets.
- Little to no bread. If I ever eat bread, I will do whole wheat or whole wheat tortillas, but I really don’t eat bread at all.
- Little to no sugar. I try to stay away from sugar totally, outside of fruits and other foods with naturally occurring sugar.
- No cream or dairy products. I do eat eggs and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk.
- I don’t eat any red meat, except for deer meat, as it is very lean. And it comes from the deer that my husband and I kill, so I know more about it:)
- I try to stay away from all processed food. If I do eat something processed, I try to eat organically.
Organic cereals with little sugar
Fish, chicken, deer meat
