From time to time, Paleo on the Go cross promotes with companies and bloggers we believe share our same passion in healing from the inside out. These cross promotions give our customers the opportunity to win our food and many other products for free. After running a giveaway with Phoenix Helix, we had the opportunity to get to know our giveaway winner, Cassie Stanton, who shares her experience with paleo and explains the wakeup call she experienced as a result. Below is her story.
A Winning Story
“A little bit about me: My health journey truly began after losing my dad to cancer 15 years ago….it was that experience that started my family down the path that what we feed our bodies determines so much more than just how much we weigh. The last 15 years have led me on a journey from vegetarian to vegan to sugar free to low-fat and finally Gluten Free/Paleoish. A recent series of blood work indicated that my blood sugar is unstable, I’m not processing proteins and I am likely to follow in the footsteps of my family with a Hashimotos diagnosis as many of my symptoms are related. This information resulted in me rallying to “heal” myself with nutrient dense foods, eliminating those things that cause inflammation and reading as much as I can from those people that have had success doing just that. I came across Phoenix Helix, followed her on Facebook and Instagram and then proceeded to follow any blogger and order any book she recommended. I was intrigued when I continued reading her recommendations regarding Paleo on the Go and entered the giveaway promising myself that if I won I would commit the remaining 20% of the way and let my body heal. My other motivation for entering was fueled by the fact that my best friend has Psoriasis and refuses to believe that his symptoms may be helped by changing his diet. I wanted him to taste that eating nutrient dense foods does not mean eating bland “health foods.” I have experienced some very positive changes with regard to my health since following the AIP lifestyle and am so blessed that this giveaway will further enhance those benefits. Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Thank you once again for providing such an amazing opportunity. I am forever grateful.” -Cassie Stanton
