I'm not 100% paleo because I still do dairy--mostly raw dairy. Other than that I'm pretty darn paleo. The biggest and latest change for me is getting completely away from grains. I can feel the improvement in my health by doing this. I NEVER, EVER thought I could completely give up things like bread, pasta and that occasional piece of cake but to my surprise I am finding it easier and easier.

I might still slip up sometime and that's okay. I don't want to lock myself into a "never again" mentality because for me it just isn't realistic and it sets me up to fail badly. There will always be a time out there when having a bit of something that has grains in it will make it past my teeth. But overall, I am grain free and I really like it. It is forcing me to get more creative in the kitchen. Like putting my chicken salad on a leaf of endive or wrapping it in lettuce or just eating it out of a bowl. Or just eating some slices of nice cheese with a bit of lettuce wrapped around each one is really SO good! Or making rhubarb pudding using Kudzu starch instead of corn starch or wheat flour. And sweetening it with just a little bit of coconut nectar and liquid stevia extract.

I still drink alcohol sometimes but less lately and I am okay with that.

I also make my own mayonnaise which is not exactly paleo because of the oils. But I use coconut oil, olive oil, hemp oil and flax oil which are healthy alternatives. My mayo rocks! I used it today in my chicken salad.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Hey folks! I just started paleo last week. I was wondering if any of you guys blogged or blog about your transition to paleo. I find that reading about other peoples' human experiences definitely help with motivating myself to do better. Please include the link if you blog!
