This has been a long time coming…
You will now be able to find me on all social media under the handle @loveofmangoes
I have been studying Holistic Nutrition at the Edison Institute since December and I’ve learned a lot about nutrition in the short amount of time that I’ve spent with them. It’s enough information for me to confirm that I cannot stand behind or promote any cookie-cutter diet that honestly doesn’t make much sense fundamentally.
I’ve been For the Love of Paleo since December of 2013 when I was sitting on the couch with a big bowl of cauliflower and broccoli deciding if I wanted to start posting what I eat. The only knowledge base I had was the meal plan my naturopath made for me that I stuck to for years.
I don’t want to start nitpicking each part of the paleo lifestyle that I don’t approve of, but focus on individuals. Everyone has different needs, deficiencies, allergies and intolerances. I personally have been eating rice bowls combined with legumes (chick peas, tofu, etc.) as a means of not including animal protein in every meal or even every day. How am I supposed be inspired to share my lifestyle when I haven’t been honest?
Why holistic nutrition?
I’ve been very sick, as I’ve touched on in a few different posts. Sicknesses that were worsened and put my life in danger because of western medicine. My immediate family is no exclusion to the sickness and I want to help my baby brother and niece live their best lives in a world with so many contradicting sources of information. I want to be able to write a cookbook that helps everyone, not just people who have heard that paleo is good for you. I am very lucky to have a stable and satisfying day job. I help dozens of people each day in a different way which is very fulfilling. That being said, consultations are something on the back burner for the next couple of years.
What to expect?
This doesn’t mean I won’t still be posting paleo recipes! A lot of the stuff I eat is still paleo! The name change is something in the works. My blog will remain the same until I have new logos made. I will also be going through each of my 200+ posts to edit any rash information I may have shared over the years that is promoting high consumption of animal protein or anything about a ketogenic diet, low carb high fat, and whole30 to make sure that no matter how far back you scroll, it is accurate.
I appreciate any and all support, and probably won’t be apologizing for any inconvenience cause I don’t owe anyone shit. Did you really think I wouldn’t be a sassy twat for an entire post?! LOL. Love you guys tho. Let’s have some fun.
