After eating paleo for 2 years myself, I have finally got my parents to do it!! So excited, they are starting tomorrow. My dad eats eggs cooked in coconut oil with avocados for breakfast. Lunch for both is a salad with meat, and dinner is usually some sort of meat with vegetables cooked in kerrygold. We have been "testing it" the last week, and so far so good. Last night, we had zuchinni and squash "spaghetti" (thinly sliced) with grass fed meatballs and tomato sauce.
The only condition was that my mom be able to drink her morning shake. She has been having a morning milkshake for a long time and she refuses to do anything else. She said it must have a banana and milk, but I convinced her to let me make some changes to the rest it. She's been doing my new version for 2 days and says that she will continue with the new version from now on. I wanted to get your thoughts on the old/new shake.
Old: Regular organic nonfat milk, whey protein, a banana, soy lecithin, brewer's yeast, flax seed
New: Full fat raw milk, whey protein, a banana, dash of cinnamon, teaspoon mct oil, flax seed, 1/2 teaspoon l-glutamine, 1 tablespoon hydrolyzed collagen
I just added the things I had around. I figured cinnamon for blood sugar control since a blended banana every morning is a lot of sugar. I wanted to add some fat since there was almost none before, so I got her to drink full fat raw milk and added mct oil. Glutamine for gut health, and she doesn't get much bone broth so I thought collagen would be good. Ditched the brewer's yeast and lecithin, but not really sure about these. Kept flax but not sure if I should get rid of it too.
