I eat to feel good, improve my health, and connect with other people.
Using the Paleo framework as a guide, most of my meals consist of the following:
- High quality meat, eggs, and fish
- Lots of fresh, organic veggies
- Seasonal, organic fruits
- Nuts and seeds
Using human biology and evolutionary history as a guide, I eat what tastes great, satiates my body, and leaves me feeling energized and alive.
I do my best to buy organic meat and produce from sustainable sources whenever possible, but my primary focus is eating real, whole food. That means food that doesn’t come in a package, laden with added chemicals, preservatives, sugars, or antibiotics.
At various stages in my life I’ve viewed food as something to either satisfy my taste, give me energy, or as a means to a physical goal. I’ve since learned these mindsets are superficial, and aren’t sustainable ways to achieve optimal health. I now seek a deeper connection with my food, which includes knowing where it comes from, what it’s made of, and how food choices impact my body, mind, and overall happiness.
Achieving health involves more than eating any single nutrient, or following a specific dietary regimen. Food is meant to be enjoyed, ideally in the company of great people. If this means eating something that isn’t strictly “Paleo,” that’s totally cool with me. I’m not perfect, and won’t pretend to be.
Eat real food, make conscious decisions, and enjoy life. That’s what it’s all about.
