Three days done. *Pat on the back* Today I was almost out of fruit, and needed some veggie add-ons so I went to the grocery store during lunch to restock. I also found recipes for a Paleo mayo and bbq sauce. You see, I had a hankering for a... Read more

Soooo.... yesterday went pretty well. I managed to eat 100% Paleo all day, on my first day. Go me! I noticed that when I ate, no matter how much was on my plate or in my bowl, I never felt over-full. Often when I eat "normal", especial... Read more

To this day, I still don't understand how restaurants have the inane ability to take a healthy meal and somehow turn it into a fat and calorie bomb worthy of first prize at a junk food fest. It really boggles me. They should all have this on the... Read more

Sometimes, we can't do something. Either we aren't strong enough, old enough, young enough, educated enough, rich enough, available enough, or healthy enough. Those can all be very legitimate reasons. Sometimes, we won't do something. Eithe... Read more
