I love food!  I love to cook – but grains were a staple in the house I grew up in.  When I decided to make a change, I was forced to learn A LOT.  (Like how to cook all sorts of things I can’t pronounce!)  I focused on gaining the skills to create food I enjoyed, that followed the Paleo lifestyle, because I knew if I didn’t still enjoy my food, I wouldn’t stick with it.

As my physical changes have become more obvious, friends and family have asked ‘what I’ve been doing’… so I created this blog.  I hope to give ideas that will inspire people to make changes, big and small, and help them realize they can still love food, and be healthy at the same time!  I hope to keep adding to this list for a long time to come!
