Admittedly, I started eating paleo because I was tired of looking at my not so attractive nakedness in the mirror and I secretly and desperately wanted to be that hot mom in a bikini….. Of course I was blind to the trillion other little health issues that plagued me; writing them off as normal. I was blind to what eating paleo really had in store
I am feeling optimistic, I feel as if People Are Listening!! I can go into Raley’s, Trader Joe’s, and now Costco and find various offerings of grass fed beef, free range bison, and free range organic chicken! I no longer feel like an underground cult member, looking and longing for my next fix of beef that won’t kill me. We, Us, the Consumer, have spoken
Over the years I have humbly learned a couple things about making paleo work for a family. One big lesson is accepting that in order to eat paleo, you simply have to cook. Another big realization: Even when it feels as if there is no time left in the day, the reality is that a delicious and healthy paleo meal can be only minutes away.
Our ancestors ate what was available based upon the seasons and in my part of the world the summer season is the most bountiful and wonderful time to take advantage of what’s growing near you. I made a yummy breakfast this week with organic seasonal vegetables, all purchased from our local farmers market (except the mushrooms which I purchased from Trader Joe’s).
