I'm sure you've heard about it, in fact I've probably written about it here before. Some people out there think that we should be eating like the cavemen ate. It's called the Paleo Diet and it's been getting more and more attention. Today I was talking with someone that has had his own share of digestive struggles and he mentioned that this diet has worked for many people with Crohn's. I have heard this too and have considered trying the diet myself many times. Why haven't I done it? Well truthfully, I love bread and sugar. The Paleo Diet is free of grains and added sugar. Basically, it's meat & fish, veggies, fruit, healthy fats and spices. In my head it sounds awesome and I know I'd feel amazing but somehow I just haven't been able to commit to it. You all know how much I love to bake!
Lately however I've been feeling frustrated that I am still having some minor issues like irritations, a little bit of constipation, extremely dry skin, redness and irritation on my face. Things that I feel could be helped with a few changes in diet. Today I had eggs and gf toast for breakfast, a baked potato and brussels sprouts for lunch, gf pasta with meatballs and marinara for dinner and I also made cornbread. I ate a good two or three pieces of the cornbread. All of a sudden this evening the rash became majorly inflamed! I don't know what's causing it, but it's driving me absolutely crazy. So I think I'm going to give this whole caveman diet a shot. Cut my diet down to the very basics. Hope for the best. Anyone else out there eating this way? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
