Since we eat out more when we travel, we don't keep as close to the dietary lifestyle that we would at home. We stick to a Paleo template at home (avoiding industrial seed oils, processed sugar, and gluten containing grains), primarily for maintaining good health and preventing obesity, diabetes, and metabolic disease that are so prevalent in America. We both have relatives whose lives have been plagued by such conditions, so paying close attention to our bodies and fueling up on foods that are nutrient-dense and of high quality is important to us; which is why I created Grass Fed Jerky Chews in the first place. And having the Chews on hand did deter us from tourist traps, for the most part, just not enough to completely resist the delicate flavors of homemade treats specific to the region we visited.
The online support group for the 21 Day Sugar Detox guide had already started beginning of this month, but I am thinking of just jumping right in, this Monday, since the recipes from our honeymoon are still fresh in my head.
Along our detox journey, I hope to share with you some interesting recipes from our trip and some of the typical ones we make at home. I can't promise that I will have a new recipe everyday since I am also attending to your jerky orders, but I'll do my best!
Check in tomorrow for my kick-off post, and a new recipe, specific to Bosnia - Herzegovina!
