Northwoods 'Paleo Foodie' talks healthy eating
SUGAR CAMP - "[I] usually I look for something that doesn't have a bunch of bruises and dark spots on it," said Kelsey Harfert as she looked through the bin of eggplants inside Rhinelander's Golden Harvest Market. 
 
The 25-year-old 'Paleo Foodie' living in Sugar Camp sometimes has limited options when she goes grocery shopping, but that doesn't stop her from getting creative. 


"On paleo you're not able to have dairy. This is mostly made out of cashew nuts and water," said Harfert as she looked at a bag of nut cheese. 

Harfert has been following the paleo diet for about six years now. 

She says the easiest way of describing the diet is eating the way a caveman would eat. That includes anything you could get outside like fish, meat, and vegetables. 

"Golden Harvest is one of my main places to get the good whole foods," said Harfert. 

"The produce department usually has a lot more options than a larger size grocery store and then in things like teas and nuts and dry fruits and stuff like that," said Golden Harvest Market Timothy Conjurske. 

Harfert then heads home where she normally cooks for herself and her boyfriend. That's where the creativity begins. 

"There's a lot of different ingredients to be creative with and different spice mixtures that will make it taste differently than it would," said Harfert. "Just substitute one or two ingredients from a regular recipe and then it will make it so much better for you." 

Harfert says those small choices go a long way. And that one of the most important parts of this lifestyle is knowing those grocery trips will help you at the end of the day.

"Eventually you'll feel better, I think, mentally and physically about yourself and your decisions. I think the outcome is worth the money that you're going to spend," said Harfert. 

Harfert has a social media page where she keeps track of a lot of her recipes. For more information on that, click on the link below.
