Starting Practical Paleo

7 Oct

We are ready to batten down the hatches on our diet for the next 30 days.  I received Practical Paleo for my birthday, so we decided to start with the 30 day meal plan for autoimmune conditions.  Pictured here is a bowl of Tom Yam Goong from Saturday’s dinner. It will be off limits for the next month because of the hot peppers.

I plan to write about our experience on the 30 day plan. Since we have been on a paleo plan for more than a year, we are not expecting to lose a lot of weight.  However, 30 days without alcohol will be good for our livers, for sure.  Also, I have been eating eggs every day for years, so I am curious to see if there are any noticeable effects from eliminating them.

We do need to adjust the protocol a little. Because my husband gets abdominal distress from coconut oil, we can’t use it as our main cooking oil. We did a Whole 30 in January, and we are confident that neither of us is allergic to dairy.  So today I rendered down a pound of Kerrygold butter to make ghee, which we will use along with bacon fat for cooking.

Our protocol starts tomorrow, so today we cooked chicken thighs, turkey legs, squash, zucchini and sweet potatoes. Yum.
