Ahhh! Here it is. My very first *real* blog post. And it’s only taken me 4 days to figure out how to get this up and running. But now? I got this!
I’m not sure where this blog will take me but somewhere in my head I have high hopes for it. Hopes people will like it and learn from it. And hopes that maybe, just maybe, I can make a difference in something I feel passionately about.
I love it. I really always have. Not in a gross, gluttonous way but in a way that I enjoy a peaceful moment by myself with something yummy and really appreciating it. I even remember stealing “fun fruits” from the pantry when I was little and sneaking off to eat them slowly and quietly. Savoring the corn syrup-y, artificially-dyed goodness it was. And of course, saving the red ones for last because clearly they were the best!
Now 25 years later I know, that’s not FOOD. Fruit chew snacks are mostly a cocktail of chemicals. Truth be told I don’t know what they are, how to pronounce their names or even what they do. The wonders of the internet have brought us a plethora of knowledge that we haven’t had access to in the past. Including information about what’s in our food, how it’s produced and where it comes from. And the more I learn about what is going on with our food supply, the more concerned and quite frankly, sad, I become.
So here I am today. We’ve been eating Paleo for 4 weeks now in an attempt to clean up our diet. And I love it. I really do. I feel great. I have more energy and losing some pounds along the way. So far so good. At the end of the day I’d like for this blog to document my family’s story and love affair with food as we seek out answers. We’re not perfect, I’m sure (VERY SURE) there will be beers along the way, birthday cakes and other decadent non Paleo goodies to be enjoyed. But those aren’t going to be every day and will be what they should be.. treats. But like I said, this is my first post and we shall see where this all takes us. I’d love for you to come along and join me. Learn with me. Fail with me. And sneak a Pliny and some burrata with me. Because if you’re gonna cheat, you better cheat right!
