Exactly How Do You Eat?

“So, you’re not a vegan, a vegetarian, or a raw foodist. You don’t exclusively eat gluten and dairy free… And just because it’s organic, doesn’t mean it’s ok to eat it. I’m confused. Exactly how do you eat?!”
Most of my family and friends know that we eat differently, and occasionally someone will want to know exactly how we eat. I think most expect a short response of, We’re vegetarians or We only eat organic. While we do eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and mostly organic food, it doesn’t quite paint the whole picture.
In short, we follow The Maker’s Diet by Jordan Rubin. Basically we try to eat the least processed food that we can. For example, we eat mostly organic fruits and vegetables, grass fed meats and raw dairy products. Unprocessed, unrefined, and untreated with pesticides or hormones.
If your interested in the details of how we eat, I highly recommend grabbing a copy of The Maker’s Diet. The author shares his own health struggles and how he made a full recovery, literally, one bite at a time. I think it’s quite an inspiring book and it’s one that has helped me on my journey back to health.
