PALEO & HEALTH JOURNEY
For over four years I have been committed to the paleo lifestyle and I can confidently say, that I can’t remember the last time I craved something I couldn’t eat. I was turned onto the paleo diet at the beginning of my battle with chronic illness. At the age of sixteen, I was diagnosed with mono, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, leaky gut, two blood disorders (thalassemia and pernicious anemia), and a pile of allergies, and Hashimoto’s Disease.
I went from being extremely active, full of life, on the run, and working out, to feeling like a 100 year old woman; unable to walk or lift a glass of water. I spent years on bed rest as a teenager and young adult. As well as in and out of waaayy too many doctor offices and a myriad of natural health care practitioners. Eating paleo has supported my body and given me freedom to create as my body continues to heal. I feel my optimum best when I am eating whole foods that nourish my body and balancing that with as much exercise as my body will handle. I want everyone to feel their optimum best! I am on a mission to spread health and a joyful lifestyle through whole foods and the paleo diet.
I love creating. I love healthy nourishing whole foods. I love the feel of my camera in my hand. I started this blog out of my desire to share healthy food that actually tastes “real”. Eating with allergens and thriving on the paleo diet doesn’t mean bland, boring, and time consuming! I love to cook, but I’m also practical! Quick and easy recipes that taste delicious are my jam. I want you to eat healthy food you are excited about!
So, I hope you enjoy some yummy food and have fun along the way! Happy cooking from my kitchen to yours:)
