Last week I mentioned that our family will be conducting a food experiment. I’m researching recipes and “lifestyles” this week and plan starting March 1st. Here is our line up so far
This should be fairly easy since I can totally do without meat already.
This will be much harder. No legumes? No peanuts? No dairy? No sugar? No grains? What do they eat?!
My jumbo Groupon order of PB2 will need to be consumed this month I guess, which shouldn’t be a problem.
Probably equally as hard as paleo because NO animal products
We plan to go 3 weeks on, 1 week reset before the next month. We may add some along the way, but didn’t want to overcommit. Gluten-free, Dairy-free and Sugar-free lifestyles are incorporated into paleo, so if I feel a huge difference that month, I will probably do a month of each separately to find the culprit.
I had a request for the South Beach Diet. For one, this is more of a “diet” plan, not a lifestyle, from what I understand. With the amount of exercising and training done between the two of us… ok just with Justin, I didn’t think a low-carb lifestyle would be best for us.
I’ve also had several people comment that this experiment may be pointless because one way of eating isn’t good for all. I completely agree. I just want to see if we can possibly feel better as well as be better prepared to direct my nutrition clients.
This month, look for meatless meals as well as researched pros and cons of vegetarianism.
Any great vegetarian resources out there?
Which would be the hardest for you?
