Clean Up Your “Dirty” Social Media Feed

With nearly 10 years of some form of dairy-free/gluten-free/Paleo under my belt, my mind is always swimming with tips & thoughts that I’d like to share with you.  So I figure there’s no better place to start than right here in your inbox:  where you can read, savor (hopefully), and pass to your friends if you feel they could benefit.

DIRTY SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDS

I want to start things off with something that really gets under my skin:healthy dessert feeds masquerading as Paleo inspiration.

These days, there is no shortage of blogs, websites, and personal feeds filled with Paleo food and recipes.  There are feeds filled with clean, fresh food and then there are the dirtyones.

I’m talking about the feeds filled with Paleo desserts, (not-so-) occasional cheat meals, and a few salads sprinkled here and there.

At some point, I realized that my social media feeds were becoming dominated by 2, 3, and 4-ingredient pancakes, baked “donuts,” and 10,542 variations of breakfast muffins.  And without fully being aware of why, I found myself justifying adding them into my diet more frequently than I should.

So, as painful as it is, I’ve forced myself to systematically unfollow any account that postsprimarily sweets.

Out of sight, out of mind.

I’ve realized that since unfollowing these feeds, it’s much easier to keep my cravings in check.  And that when I do go for the truly occasional “cheat,” I’m more likely to be reasonable about what I choose to indulge in and much less likely to go overboard.

While it may not be the fix for alllllll those cravings, cleaning up your social media feeds can go a long way.  If you’re a social media nut (like me), put what you really want in front of your face and you’re more likely to get it.  Some of my favorites? @Whole30Recipes,@BeyondtheBite4Life, and @Meatified.
