Life Changes, Paleo Style

Well, I would consider myself a foodie. I love trying new restaurants and staying on top of the best places to go. My favorite social events include restaurants and good food. Not your chains either. Something new, fresh and creative. However, my food excursions typically include fries and some sort of yummy dessert. Yet, on the other end of the spectrum, I could easily be a vegetarian.

The time finally came. My husband and I went to LA and the universes must have aligned. When we returned, he was ready for a food overhaul. Not sure how it came to be, but we settled on the Paleo Diet. I don't really consider it a diet, but just changing the way we eat. In three weeks, we have both lost weight (of course his is more noticeable), feel much better, cook at home everyday, have spent more on groceries, but saved so much more. We are conscious of what we eat, yet having so much fun perfecting Paleo recipes.

As a foodie, I have eaten all kinds of "healthy" foods and desserts and often times thought I would rather not torture myself in that manner. My goal is not to suffer when I eat. I hope to share with you my adventures in the world of Paleo and some delicious recipes!

Here is a peak at one of my latest recipes - chocolate chip cookies. Dairy free, gluten free, sugar free, and seriously, probably the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever had in my life! I wish I could have a glass of milk with it!!
