If I told you about my old eating habits you might not believe me. My meals typically looked like this: Breakfast- coffee, Lunch- McDonald’s (almost daily) or nothing, Dinner- Usually some kind of takeout like pizza, Chipotle, or mac and cheese. If I was cooking, it was often pasta or something quick, low-maintenance, and heavy. I never really gave much thought about what I was putting into my body, nor how much of it I was consuming.
A few months ago I did a Whole30 and was thrilled with the results. My chronic migraines were much less frequent and I had a ton of energy. Plus, I really started to like cooking, viewing it as more of a hobby and less of a chore. While my Whole30 experience helped me to develop better habits, I feel as though I still have some work to do. I’m hoping this blog will keep me accountable as I aim to maintain an 80/20 paleo lifestyle.
By no means am I an expert about eating paleo, or nutrition at all for that matter. I expect for this to be a learning experience as I spend more time at the farmer’s market this summer and less time in the drive thru. I hope you’ll join me as I attempt to make paleo-friendly recipes that, believe it or not, can taste just as good (if not better) than a double quarter pounder with cheese!
