One week of the Specific Carb diet, meaning no grains, no gluten free snacks, I am rediscovering the joys of the produce aisle.
The thought struck me today how the Specific Carb Diet is similar to something God said in Genesis:
“29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”
The main difference being that grains come from seed bearing plants, but omit those and the fruit and veggies are part of the original nutritional guide. No I am not vegan. I still eat meat and cheese, but surely there will be benefits from increasing my veggie and fruit intake.
One thing I love about buying fresh fruit and vegetables is that I do not have to worry about looking for a certified gluten free symbol.
My late night snack of certified gluten free oatmeal and milk has been replaced by a banana and organic unsweetened peanut butter. For my early evening meal, I no longer use gluten free pasta made from brown rice. I add more vegetables and along with the meat or beans, it fills me up. I am going to give the Specific Carb Diet another week to see if I start to feel benefits from it.
If you haven’t tried it yet, try eating organic fruit and see if it doesn’t taste better to you. 🙂
Later today I will go to the gym and have my weekly weight check. Will let you know how that goes and how life on the Specific Carb Diet goes.
Oh and by the way, my favorite fruit for this time of year- Organic Apples. What is your favorite fruit?
