If you’re following the Wahls Protocol for overall health or to heal from an auto-immune disorder, “Tracking the Wahls Paleo Plus” by Petra8Paleo provides a plan for tracking your daily diet. I highly recommend grabbing a cup of tea and settling in for a rewarding hour or so to browse the other information in this very helpful blog.
I’ve re-created Petra8Paleo’s tracking sheet using PowerPoint, because I find it easier to manipulate, and I am thinking I might want to modify it over time to better meet my needs. Here’s a pic of my tracking sheet:
Over the past two years, I have been on a journey of re-education. I have had to learn how to shop and cook all over again. As a result, I have learned to serve delicious food to a family with intolerance for wheat, dairy, soy, corn and peanut.
Here’s the good news: It CAN be done! And we feel so much better. The improvement in our overall health and energy more than makes up for the extra work.
And the bad news: The American food industry makes eating this way exceedingly difficult. There are some inspiring exceptions that cater to the growing population looking for healthier alternatives.
In hopes that I can make the journey a bit easier for others, I plan to share some of my favorite tips and techniques here. I hope others will join in. Please add to the conversation with comments and shared links!
