Since starting a Paleo lifestyle 16 months ago, I’ve learned the foods that I once thought I had to have and realize now that I don’t and some foods I never thought I’d have anything to do with that I now love. Whole9 encourages people to create a list of things they eat because they have to and then things they’re gonna eat no matter what! I’ve been thinking on mine a while so…here’s a few lists I’ve made regarding my food choices in the last 16 months.
Food that will likely never again receive prime realty on my pantry shelf or my refrigerator door…
- Peanut Butter
- Store-bought bread
- White potatoes
Food that will likely always have a special place on my shelves and in my heart, even though I’m Paleo!
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Mexican food
- Christmas/Thanksgiving dinner and all that it entails
Food that has elbowed, kneed, shoved and forced its way in to stay (meaning, I don’t care for it but it’s good for me so I’m going to eat it)
- Coconut milk and coconut flakes
- Fish oil
Food that has gracefully entered my world and is here to stay!
- Almond butter (YUM!)
- Brussels sprouts
- Red bell peppers
- Coconut oil
What’s on your lists?
