Paleo in a Nutshell!

So, I’ve been getting a lot of strange looks and questions regarding my “newest fad.” I’ve been successful, thus far, in explaining that this is not some new fad diet (no more cabbage soup or hollywood cookie diet- no I haven't really tried that one!) BUT a way of life (and a good, scientifically sound idea!) Alot of my friends are still skeptical and just don't understand why I would "give up" bread and pasta and... CUPCAKES!!! My explination then brings me around to NELLY---That's what I call her--- she's my nervous stomach. She usually rears her ugly head when I am extremely stressed out or when I go throughout the day without eating, then reach that breaking point and shove something down my throat as fast as I can. Needless to say once she's here it's hard to get rid of her... my day is usually ruined, and unfortunately for anyone else with me- theirs is too! I never really saw any relation to the foods I was eating and Nelly, but I never thought to jot it down either… so she’s going to remain a mystery… Although I can say I've been eating Paleo for over a month now (only cheated a few times) and she has yet to stop by for a visit!! Maybe she's gone south for winter?? Maybe I should throw her a going away party and serve up some delicious paleo-friendly party recipes. I love a good party!

Any way- for all of you out there who don’t know what the Paleolithic (PALEO for short!), Stone Age, Caveman, or Primal Diet here it is in a NUTSHELL! (Thanks to http://paynowlivelater.blogspot.com/)
