Death by wheat. Exciting way to go, right?! Bleh. Just say no to GMO!
Well. As I’ve said I cannot make any promises that I will ever eat entirely Paleo. It’s because of recipes like this one (and because I adore sweets more than occasionally…shame, I know) that I cannot make such a promise. Since the day I made these, though, I have begun eating cleaner-very little dairy if any, no added sugar, etc.
Anyway. These homemade hot pockets were so much fun to make, especially with my boy’s help. I got the recipe off of Pinterest, of course. I mean…are there other places to get recipes these days? I’m not so sure.
Here’s the link to the yummy blog that put this recipe in my kitchen: The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife
What I Used:
If you’re anything like me, you want to eat cleaner, healthier but you don’t know where to start.
Start by cutting these 15 things out of your diet. Completely.
You’re welcome. 😉
Tell the truth. How many of you are interested in at least learning a little bit about what’s so special with the Paleo diet? Well. I am. So I’ve been on a hunt for awesome Paleo-related blogs and articles to teach me what I want to know.
Now. I cannot promise that I will one day follow the diet strictly, but it has spiked my interest enough to eat clean most of the time. And by “most of the time” I mean when I am not at my inlaws’ house. For one reason or another, my self control leaves itself at the door. It’s humorous and frustrating.
Anyway, I digress. Here are a few of the Paleo-friendly blogs that have helped me learn what this Paleo craze is all about:
everyday paleo – Make sure to check out all of her awesome recipes after you learn a little bit about Paleo!
Paleo Plan – This blog has several articles that are informative in nutrition and fitness topics along with several ways to get started.
nom nom paleo – Ok! This has to be one of my favorites. The blog’s vibrant appearance in and of itself makes this one awesome. Aside from that, though, there’s a lot of information, recipes and resources for your Paleo-viewing pleasure.
Eat real food!
The subject of diabetes always hits close to home with me. Many, many of us are either affected by diabetes ourselves or know someone very close to us who is dealing with the disease on a daily basis.
That’s just it, though. You have to deal, take care of yourself and continue living your life. I found this pretty awesome tool on American Diabetes Association’s website. It’s called My Food Advisor, and it makes living with diabetes just a little easier. No one is alone in this.
I have to add this… Just because your doctor may recommend LESS fat intake does not mean you should turn to low-fat or no-fat substitutes. Most are riddled with chemicals that damage your body, especially patients with diabetes. Chemicals in low-fat and no-fat substitutes are known to create spikes and severe drops in blood sugar. Opt for all natural lean meats and fibrous veggies to keep you full.
I cannot stress the fact enough that people need to understand what is going into their bodies. Many of us (myself included) do not eat exactly the right foods to keep us healthy. For that reason (and many others), the least we can do is understand the products that go into our systems and their effects.
*Warning* The following probably isn’t for the weak-stomached. It’s strictly for informative purposes only, but you may find yourself gagging once or twice. Be careful. 😉
Here’s an article with just a few examples of what I mean.
Choose fresh over frozen or canned. Here’s why.
