Just reading some new information from Dr Ray Peat and it really interested me from a number of angles:-
- It encourages a healthy high metabolism
- It supports healthy thyroid function
- It supports healthy hormone function
There were stories of low carb dieters who had been low carbing for some years and their health had started to deteriorate.
Nearly all women who have had children encounter this. So does anyone who has lost weight and also the rest of us who may have trashed our skin by alcohol, smoking, junk food, lack of nutrients and many more reasons.
So that probably is about 80% of the population who has this issue!
Even though the Paleo and Vegan peeps both shun dairy, I was convinced that I had the Northern European gene that had adapted to dairy and so basically was immune to all the supposed negative effects that plague others.
A new friend in my life was quizzing me about what I eat.
We were exchanging recipes and explaining briefly the why, what and hows of our respective eating habits and at one point I said, “I do eat cheese because I like it and it suits my weight loss goals but I am aware of the gumming up effect it sometimes has on me if I eat it too much. As well as the fact that all dairy food is supposed to cause inflammation in your body, much like grains do. But I eat it anyway.”
So following on from last week’s blog I wanted to give you a sweet treat recipe removing as many PUFAs as possible but still have it taste amazing and here it is!
You are probably thinking, “what’s she on about now!!”

Happy Easter to everyone!
Just thought I would keep away from chocolate this time around and play with some cute shapes in this high protein snack.
It is interesting reading, tripping through other people’s blogs and everyone’s responses when it comes to food, eating and bodies.
There are unrealistic ideals in terms of thinness, eating disorders, people who believe one thing bagging anyone else who has a different view, a myriad of ways to eat – paleo, vegetarian, vegan, high protein, fruitarian, bananas only, raw food only, low carb, junk food only, low carb high fat, a combination of the above, eat some things but leave other things out and the whole ‘a little bit of everything in moderation’ camp.
So really to find your way through the murky depths of the many views, concepts, programs and guidelines, there is only one true shining light of guidance for you. And that is…
