It started with a private food log on Instagram in November 2013. I wanted to keep track of my meals so that I could identify food triggers and snapping a pic was easy. But a few months in I reluctantly opened my account to followers and I was thrilled to discover an entire community of support. Sometimes my family doesn’t completely understand my passion for paleo social media, but then I remind them that before all of this I never knew anyone who ate like I did…or was choosing to in order to feel well.
This lifestyle didn’t happen overnight for me. I have been gluten and dairy free since I was a teenager, which was a long time ago (as a mother of 2 teenage boys I am not really a “girl” anymore😉)…back when they called it “wheat free” and everything tasted like cardboard. Then in about 1998 I eliminated soy and about 2009 I eliminated eggs, in both cases due to allergies I developed. I never really tolerated beans or grains all that well. So when I discovered Paleo in the spring of 2013, I felt I had found a name for what I had already discovered worked for me. I currently follow my own version of AIP/low carb paleo, as I have found that nightshades and too many starchy carbs are still triggers for me. But if I have discovered anything along the way it is that I will likely need to keep adjusting and adapting, as what works today may not work next week or next year (which I am convinced is at least in part due to our ever evolving microbiome…but I digress). So welcome along on this journey…glad to have your company along the way.

I just found you on Instagram..Wow!! And your blog is beautiful! I can’t wait to try some of your recipes. I was so happy to read that “works today may not work next week or next year”.. I thought that was just me! I am 18 months into a celiac diagnosis, and while 100% gluten free–everything else is still trial and error. So nice to meet you. 🙂
Oh, and I sure hope you took Tori ^ up on her offer to send you some Primal Kitchen mayo! I only found it last summer and I really, really like it.
Thanks! DM me on Instagram and we can chat more if you like. Super sad to report I can have mayo as eggs are a no for me.
