I will start with mine. I don't use plastics. You will always see me drinking out of a mason jar (and people ask me if that's moonshine, pond water or science experiment). I also don't use Teflon pans. I use stainless steel pans. I also don't use a microwave oven.
EDIT: I have become less hygienic since adapting Paleo. I am an ex-germaphobe. But now I love playing with dirt when I garden! I love looking at small tiny animals in my garden, such as snails, earthworms, ants....etc.
What are your Paleo practices?
I like this question. I try to walk everywhere and make a point to avoid elevators/escalators (stairs!) I wear my baby throughout the day, no stroller, no lugging around in an infant car seat. I breastfeed. I try to avoid plastics as well and used to do the mason water jar deal but it was confiscated on so many occasions (disneyland, haha) that I elected to buy an aluminum bottle instead. I'm usually barefoot. I lift heavy things. I stay out during the day and try to keep artificial light to a minimum (sleep is usually segmented). No microwave either.
A lot of these existed pre-paleo, but it all seems to jive quite nicely:
I have a ton of house plants too, which definitely feels natural. Something about the lush greenness is rejuvenating, like a mini dose of forest bathing.
I've started easing my way into cold showers, trying to keep my bedroom cool at night by leaving a window open, trying to go to bed early enough so I wake up naturally without an alarm, walk barefoot on grass and sand, and I'm using bi carb soda and aromatherapy oils for cleaning.
I make my own sauerkraut and kvass. I'm brewing some t'ej right now (still bubbling). I'm a little afraid to try kombucha.
I wear zero-drop shoes most of the time (haven't given all my high heels away, though).
I sleep in as close to complete darkness as possible, and am careful about when I expose myself to blue light.
I am working on cold adaptation. Shiver walks work better for me than cold baths at this point--easier to do on the spur of the moment (don't have to wait for the tub to fill).
I try to lay in the grass at least once a day when weather permits.
I take my shoes off when I play with my kids outside.
I sleep on my back with the window open.
I try to wake up slowly. No rushing out the door, no cramming food down, no extreme exursion.
I grow several small gardens.
Pre-paleo logic? I was a vegan/on the toilet 24/7
Post-paleo logic? I eat more meat now in one week, than I used to eat in a whole month when I was omni (pre-vegan)... and I don't spend 100 hours on the toilet ... #winning
