Is quitting sugar the way to go? So is gluten unhealthy? Maybe I should try the paleo diet? Oh wait, what about the ethics of killing animals?
I wrote a little while back, how I'm quitting sugar. I have read Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar e-book and agree that we are consuming way too much of it at the moment. And yes, I feel fabulous and might even do a post on some tips and tricks to reducing sugar intake. But reducing is the key word, as I don't think I will be cutting out sugar all together. I am all for eating for health, energy and beautiful skin but there are other reasons we eat as well. Food is an enjoyment and a pleasure!
Buying local is also what I'm really about. Shopping and supporting local farmer's markets, for example. Choosing organic when you can is great too. In the past few years I've gone from being a strict vegetarian, to eating chicken and fish on occasion, and now, eating red meat every so often. I'm happy to say I'm done with labelling myself! That's silly.
I'm not quitting certain foods anymore, just eating real food with lots of nutrients! I'm learning to listen to my body. Some days I'll sip on fresh vegetable juices and coconut water, and other days I delight in a coffee. And that is perfectly fine with me :)
