LADIES NITE TONIGHT!

BYOFood if you need some snacks with your wine.
From the Paleo archives:
Let's bone up on some Paleo knowledge.
Why no legumes (including peanuts and soy)?
Why no grains (this INCLUDES CORN)?
Why no dairy (Dude, eggs are NOT dairy)?
Why no sugar (including honey, agave, Stevia, and maple syrup)?

I LOVE ALL THESE THINGS? WHHHHYYYYYY, Gawd, WHHHYYYY???

The short answer: these food groups contain known inflammatory compounds that can cause and exacerbate certain conditions, including joint pain, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, and allergies.

Signs of inflammation that indicate perhaps your body isn't super happy with what's going in your mouth on a daily basis:
  • GAS (are you REALLY proud of those belches, burps, and other fantastical noises (or smells) your digestive system can produce?)
  • Bloating, water retention, and puffiness.
  • Constipation (or diarrhea).
  • Acid-reflux and indigestion.
  • Joint pain or persistent muscle soreness.
  • Difficulty sleeping through the night or lack of sound sleep.
  • Moodiness.
  • Fatigue.
  • Extra weight or excess flab (despite any and all efforts to exercise it away).
  • Dull skin.
  • Runny nose or persistent congestion.
  • Wheezing.
  • Inability to maintain focus.
Nutrition is not just all about how you look or what the number says on the scale. In fact, nutrition is not about that at all. Nutrition is about keeping your body fueled with quality food. REAL food that your body can digest easily, so that the important vitamins and minerals can reach your body's vital organs and systems. So you can breathe, facilitate circulation, and move more easily with sustained energy and mental focus.
