The Kind Diet...
Over the years I have been forced to redefine my diet because of allergies to many of the foods I always used to enjoy eating. As I started to eliminate different foods, I saw a huge change in the way that I felt. The best approach for me is to stay as close to natural products and ingredients as I can, including fresh vegetables, protein, whole grains, etc. Anything processed and in a box is loaded with things that don't agree with me. So a clean diet is what I strive to maintain, which is not always easy running from appointment to appointment.
Recently I have been doing some research into superfoods and vegan/raw eating. I am curious about the lifestyle but know it will redefine an already strict style of eating and eliminate some things I still do enjoy, i.e. chicken, and cheese. One of my brides recently suggested the Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone and raved about the recipes that are included. And she is right it is just absolutely fabulous and also goes into great detail about the benefits of being a vegan. I highly recommend this book for anyone that is considering making these changes to their diet and incorporating a healthy approach to look and feel better without having to drink cayenne pepper, maple syrup and lemon (master cleanse) to lose weight. I am excited to give it a go!
