My Thoughts Exactly: A Primal Diet Approach To Starting Solids

I’m not one of those lucky moms whose baby weight has just fallen off. That being said, continuing to breast feed X is much more important to me then fitting in a size 2. So what is a momma to do when dieting (ie: cutting calories) isn’t an option and showers are hard to come by, nevermind the gym? Changing the way I eat was the logical answer for me. I was a vegan for years. It wasn’t about animal rights for me, but was about wellness and how I felt. My nutritional needs now are significantly different then they were then. I struggle to get enough iron and I don’t think a vegan diet would work for me at this point in my life.
A friend is an avid Paleo eater and a lot he had to say made a lot of sense. Another friend has recently lost some weight and increased energy using the Primal Blueprint diet. She sent me some links and I started reading. This leads me to the link I’d like to share with you today. The Primal take on baby nutrition almost exactly follows my views on feeding X, right down to choosing avocado as X’s first food when the time comes. Primally Feeding Babies
So I think I may get back to my genetic roots and give this primal diet a chance.
