So I know that this actually has got nothing to do with having ITP – but here at my house at the moment there has been a lot of talk about Paleo in our kitchen. After stumbling across an old interview from 1952 where Marilyn Monroe spoke about her oddly Paleo eating habits.
“I’m sure that I couldn’t allow myself this indulgence were it not that my normal diet is composed almost totally of protein foods.”
The interview was all access to Ms Monroe where she shared her own workout routines, daily regiment and tour of her home. For breakfast she drank eggs and milk, for dinner steak and raw carrots.
Instead of opting for the best restaurant food which she undoubtedly could easily afford, Marilyn would stop at a market near her hotel and select steak, liver, or lamb chops for dinner. She would even broil them herself right in her hotel room with an electric oven.
Marilyn was not trying to be Paleo at the time, in fact Paleo eating was not even a term in the 1950’s, she simply focused on eating the foods she wanted to and liked eating. She must have had a natural taste for protein.
