The Maker’s Diet- Here We Go

I recently read on somebody’s blog about a book called The Maker’s Diet, by Jordan Rubin. Intrigued, I got a copy from my library and popped it open. In this book Jordan tells of how he became very ill with Crohn’s Disease, and by following an eating regimen based on Biblical foods, was able to find healing. He has developed a whole lifestyle surrounding this way of eating, now called The Maker’s Diet. The book also outlines how a person can follow the diet’s guidelines and hopefully have improved health, as well. I have some digestive issues, and am thinking this diet is something that might help me. Starting June 1st, I plan to do the diet by myself for the next six weeks (another 40-day journey!). If it is something that really brings about some good changes, I hope to implement as much as I can into the family’s meals by then, too.
Finding (and not finding) the foods I need for the next two weeks (phase one) was interesting. The only dairy allowed is goat’s milk/yogurt/cheese, and I am still working on that. Chicken feet- for making good broth, I figured I wouldn’t be able to get. I asked at Meijer, and my doubts were confirmed. In the back of my mind, I thought the Mexican grocery might be a good place to check, just because you can find weird stuff like that in a foreign market. Sure enough, there they were in the meat case at the back. I’ll try to post here frequently about how the diet is going.

  1. Sounds interesting. I’m most curious about how you are going to do it alone, while your family eats “normal” food, I’ve always thought that would be a big challenge for me 🙂
