April is Paleo Month

on April 4, 2013

And this month is different for two reasons:

  1. It’s a permanent change
  2. we’re not jumping into it right away

Because Paleo is a total diet change. It’s different than not cooking meat for a month, it’s something you decide to do and then stick with. But we have leftovers that are soooo not paleo (mac and cheese anyone?), and potatoes that I don’t want to go to waste. Plus a loaf of bread I need to eat. So, yeah, it’s not gonna happen all at once. BUT I did commit to not buying anything that wasn’t paleo at the store, and we’re phasing things out. AND I’m figuring out how to make Paleo coffee creamer (if I figure it out, there will be a recipe).

I know that we’ll cheat, though. Because we love Pasta…and Dan loves cheese. And I can’t see us never visiting the Olive Garden or eating pizza again. But that’s not gonna happen this month. No cheating except what’s already in the house. And once those are gone, no more buying them.

So that’s the plan. We’re going paleo. That’s that.
