I just had five non-paleo females, three of them pre-teen girls, visiting for the last week, and decided this was the time to use my 10% non-paleo foods. I know some people can be 100% HFLC, but for most of us a concession of 10-20% of eating as non-hflc makes life a bit easier. Now I can get back to my normal hflc I will be happier. No use having regrets, and it made life simpler to have meals that had food company would enjoy while not totally sacrificing my healthy paleo/hflc ethic. I made a gf dessert that’s on my recipe blog, we also had bread products (at least organic) tha the kids want, but the main dishes, salads, vegetables all were good hflc offerings.
The fact is I feel better when I don’t eat non-hflc foods, but the occasional exceptions only remind me how much better I feel when I don’t eat such foods. Company is now gone, the house is cleared of the foods I shouldn’t eat, and I don’t feel a martyr because I ate some sugars, for feeling good about how we deal with reality is important, too.
Yours in finding balance,
