The question should be what can’t they do for you? This is a powerful combination! There are benefits to all three separately but all together their pretty much unstoppable!
Healthy digestion is at the core of all health. Without a healthy digestive system and gut you will feel sluggish and not adequately absorb the nutrients from your food. An unhealthy digestion and gut also leads to health problems and weight gain and really who wants that!
I find it absolutely amazing and scary how many things have added sugars snuck into them. Take taco seasoning for example, a seemingly innocent mix of seasonings and spices right? Wrong! at least for prepacked store bought…and don’t even get me started on bullion bases! Look at the added sugar and carb amount in this Old Elpaso seasoning:
Before starting out on our LC journey we had been Paleo”ish” for a few years but do to life craziness, which is a whole other story, we would fall off the wagon quite often and slip back into processed junk. It is amazing how many Paleo and Low Carb recipes cross over each other and yet how many Paleo recipes are much higher in carbs as they use more starch. I still have a great number of my favorite Paleo recipes that were lower in carbs to begin with or have converted the higher carb ones to lower carb. Keep on reading!
I am Shari and am the proud wife to my wonderful husband and proud mommy to our 8 kiddos. Having a big family is pretty great and interests are all over the place. There is never a dull moment in our home! My husband, aka Mr. Lowcarb, is a type 1 diabetic and if you have T1D or have a loved one that has it you know it is nothing easy to deal with and can cause a lot of health issues. In November of 2018 I started learning about Low Carb and how insulin and other hormones work together, I knew a lot before but always love to learn more and boy have I! This lead us to decide to give a new lifestyle change a try and after the results we have had so far we will never go back to the standard american diet(SAD)!
Since starting our low carb journey shortly before Thanksgiving of 2018, what a time to give up carbs!, I have been having loads of fun finding different recipes to try for my family and tweaking them along the way. After posting many pictures on Facebook of the deliciousness I was making I had several requests for the recipes which I happily share however it can be difficult to do on social media and as a result this blog is born. This is also doubling as a school project for my son. I hope you enjoy the foods you will see as well as other posts about low carb and our lives on it.
Please be patient as we learn how to work this blogging site and get things in order.
