Upon the advice of a trusted friend I am adding basic definition of Paleo. I’m not quite sure why I didn’t think of it…
Annnnnnnnyway…the general way that I describe Paleo to people is I don’t eat grains, dairy, sugar, or legumes. They promptly then look at me and ask what the hell I DO eat. 🙂 I giggle and respond fruits, veggies, and meat. Now I know that there are different groups of Paleo eaters who allow dairy. and some that occasionally supplement with rice. I totally understand and support them on their endeavors! Personally, when I first researched Paleo I found the most strict definition and that is what I am going with!
Now some even hardcore Paleo eaters (is there a better term for that?) allow grassfed cow butter. This baffles me. I am, however, fully in support of it. Many people also don’t eat white potatoes…I do.
Now I found an awesome graphic on Pintrest when I first started off this lifestyle change and of course it doesn’t link to a particular website for be to give credit :-/ I am still going to post it because I find it helpful, but if anyone knows where it originated please let me know!
Happy eating Paleo and Crunchy!
