My search for the perfect diet began right after I gave birth to my daughter Paulina in 2005. That is when I intuitively felt that the foods I was consuming weren’t serving me very well. I would feel fatigued in the middle of the day and experienced a constant lack of energy. Marcin felt similar to me. I began researching other ways to eat, reading books, trying new things, and gradually implementing changes in our diet.
We began by eliminating white sugar, industrially processed food, and animal milk, which we substituted with more beans and legumes, vegetables, and fruit which we tried to source from organic sources as much as possible. From the start, we began noticing positive changes in how our bodies reacted.
From the earliest years, I would take them shopping and teach them to put fruit, vegetables, and other whole foods which they were drawn to and made them happy into the basket. I think it is one of the most basic ways in which our bodies communicate with us to tell us what they need. I noticed that it came so naturally to my kids that I decided not to force anything on them. It was a very interesting experience for me and, I am sure, for them as well.
Moreover, after choosing the fruits and vegetables themselves, Paulina and Alan were eager to participate in the preparations of our meals. They loved coming up with new recipes. They also enjoyed decorating the family table with our favorite dinnerware so we could all sit and eat together. I am pleased to say they still do this today :).
Just a few weeks after excluding meat and other animal products from our diet, we experienced such an increase in vitality that we started to regularly exercise again as all this extra energy needed an outlet. I fell in love with yoga and took brisk 1-2 hour walks every day. Marcin added cross country running to mountain biking; a year later he took part in his first 80 km ultra-marathon. On the weekends we packed our backpacks and took our kids hiking in the mountains.
Congratulations on your first blog.
Really nice to see.
Yes, it’s very important to care about what you eat. That’s great your family doing that.
I like Japanese expression “itadakimasu” when you eat a meal. It’s appreciation for the food. Taking the life of animals and plants. And all people who related to that such as farmers, fishermen, people who deliver those to a market and the person who cooked. So, do not waste anything.
Anyways, I may not write comments all the time but will look forward to reading.
