Underwhelming!

Underwhelming!

Freedom Friday ended up being a very underwhelming experience.  At the beginning of the week I went grocery shopping.  Once again everything in my cart was Paleo, except for ONE box of Cascadian Farms Organic Oats & Honey Granola.  It sounded delish and lets be honest, I had a coupon…always a great excuse to buy something!  And so, the morning… Read more →

Hopeful and Healthy

      When we first started the Paleo diet, I was nervous about giving up my hamburger helper and over the course of the month I have had some serious cheeseburger cravings. However, I believe that this diet has  changed my outlook on food. I come from a very long line of diabetics, and over the past couple years,… Read more →

Freedom Friday

Let’s be honest for a moment, shall we?!  I like eating healthy.  But 30-Day Paleo healthy is a whole new level of insane.  The first couple days were difficult.  Then it got easier and I lost a few pounds, which was great.  But then it got tough again and I regained a couple of those pounds.  For the past week… Read more →

Disney Paleo Magic!

Disney Paleo Magic!

I could go on and on about how amazing each day was and how much fun I had with my soon-to-be wife, but this blog is all about Paleo!!! So, how did we do? After some googling, we quickly realized that eating Paleo in Disneyland is… Read more →

You Avocado Be Kidding Me

For those thinking about joining us on the Paleo diet, here is Survival Tip #27.  Buy an avocado tree. For me it has been an amazing 19 days.  The recipes have been great, but almost every time you can taste that something is missing.  It is that creamy, rich taste that dairy brings.  The solution?  The super-food avocado. Avocados were not a… Read more →

It’s day 12.  Has it really almost been two weeks already?  That statement in itself should tell you how the diet is going.  I feel like we have gotten into a groove and slowly this diet is becoming the new normal.  I find myself thinking less about the constrained menu options and more about the recipe possibilities we haven’t tried… Read more →

I Am Terrible At Vegetables

I Am Terrible At Vegetables

They say you always fear what you don’t understand. I am afraid of vegetables, probably because I don’t understand them. Really it’s just that I don’t have any experience with them. Growing up, our go-to vegetable was a can of green beans. I also remember eating a lot of potatoes, carrots, peas, and salad. I love green beans. Unfortunately those… Read more →
