The list is not all inclusive so if there is something not on the list and you want to eat it, think......Does it have sugar in it? Does it have flour or grains in it? Was it processed or man made? Don't eat it. Did it grow fresh from the ground or was walking a few days ago on all four? Probably eat it.
Remember the Kick off meeting is Saturday October 19th, 2013 at Blind Dog Gym! Be there!
The “Sane” Challenge Food List
We call is “Sane” because we don’t want you to feel so restricted you say, “OMG I can’t drink milk“? The point of all this is to teach us don’t be afraid to challenge yourself, listen to your body, and do what works for YOU. We took the best of Paleo and the best of Clean and put together a simple “YES I can eat” list, a “NO I can’t eat” list and a “IF I choose to eat, eat in moderation” list.
