My friend Chris over at Stitches n’ Dishes shared a great info graphic he found and I though I should share it with all of you as well. Giving up milk is not easy, but I did that about 6 months ago and it has changed my life. Since I started eating paleo I have lost about 30 pounds and I eat a richer fuller diet than I ever thought possible. I eat more fresh fruit and veggies than before and I eat a lot of fabulous things like crab legs, shrimp, steak, etc… My initial concern was that my kids need milk, but the logic in The Paleo Solution gave me the confidence I needed to give it a go. My other concern was the cost, and I discovered my grocery bill dropped about 10-15% when I stopped buying processed foods and focused my shopping on quality meat and produce. So… have a look at the info-graphic and let me know what you think. Paleo eating may not be for everyone, but it does accommodate vegetarian and vegan lifestyles and it would be hard to argue against fresh food over processed.
So I’m curious where do you stand on the issue of milk? DO you consider it an essential part of your diet, a luxury, or have you given it up? If you gave it up how do you feel?
