Today’s real food journal comes from Sara of Edible. Sara eats a primarily "paleo" diet, meaning she stays away from grains, beans, sugar, and most dairy.

In her own words…

I follow a Paleo/Primal diet for my health in general, but also to lose weight. The rules I follow are not as restricted as some Paleolithic diets are. I do eat some dairy and cured meats, I drink wine and will indulge in chocolate occasionally. One meal per month I eat whatever I want. The way I see it, the goal of eating this way is to maximize the benefits of a Paleolithic lifestyle, not to torture yourself.

    That paleo stuff recipe looks good! In fact, I have all the ingredients, I may try it. Is it considered paleo because there aren’t any grains in it?

    Also, I just looked at your blog and wanted to leave a comment, but had a hard time with it accepting it. Anyway – on the acne – have you tried the oil cleansing method?? I love it! It’s been the best thing for my slight adult acne. and it’s cheap too!

    Hi Tara–
    I haven’t heard of the oil cleansing method. I’ll have to look it up. Sorry that you couldn’t comment, try again sometime, I don’t get many comments and it is nice to hear from people.

    I know I’m a little late on this post, but I wanted to add my thoughts. I had not heard of the Paleo diet before. I would have thought it would include grains, but perhaps that exclusion is for your own health reasons?

    About the oil cleansing method…just wanted to chime in…I do it myself, and it is amazing. I blogged about my own experience, along with a step by step method, here: Hope that is helpful. I am one of the most zealous missionaries of the oil cleansing method. :)
