Why do I have this blog?
I've been doing Crossfit (www.crossfit.com) for just over a year. It's May 2013 now. About halfway through the year I did a Paleo 30 day challenge with the gym. During this time I fell in love with the eating habits of someone following a Paleo diet. I tried the zone diet. Way to much math involved. Of course like any "diet" I went back after 30 days to eating like I had for the last 45 years. OMG did that suck. I felt bad, my gut hurt, I gained weight, and most importantly, my workouts sucked. This is when I decided I was going to change my eating lifestyle. My workouts were to important to me to suck at them.
I went through the house and threw away all the bad food. Frozen, canned, bagged and boxed. I actually didn't throw it away, I gave it to others less fortunate then me. I did feel guilty because I knew that food was bad for them.
Now more then half a year has passed and I've settled into what I call the Paleo"ish" life. I'm not 100% paleo by any means and most the time I'd be hard pressed to say I'm 80%. But that's the goal. 80%. I believe doing this blog will help me get there.
I'm not trained in cooking, keep this in mind. Most of what I post here will be linked to other sites and other blogs I've taken from. I'll put my own twists on them though.
