My main goal is to feel better. My second goal is to lose weight.
I am getting started again. I am taking it one day at a time. But some advice to anyone else who’s just starting…make sure you have your basics!
Make sure you have salt, pepper, tapioca flour, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, ghee, and coconut oil. I feel like these can help you create any meal, especially when you’re first starting. I’ll explain a few of them here.
Tapioca flour is good for breading, baking, thickening – I use it a lot. It takes some getting used to, but once you figure it out, you’ll like it better than flour you probably used all your life. This is one I always use: Bob’s Red Mill Tapioca Flour
Coconut Aminos you would use in place of soy sauce. In my honest opinion, I like it better than soy sauce. I use this most often, but Trader Joe’s has one, too. Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos
Ghee is clarified butter. It has a lot of Omega-3s which is good for your heart and cardiovascular health. Anything you use butter on or in, you can use ghee instead. I like the Trader Joe’s Ghee Trader Joe’s Ghee, but I am definitely not picky when it comes to ghee. I actually picked up a turmeric and black pepper ghee from a shop that is by Woodstock, NY. It was delicious! I found about this place when I picked up a turmeric ginger elixir at a flea market. Immune-schein – check it out!
