To Paleo or not to Paleo… that WAS the question

We have been headed back to raw foods, but decided to pass by PALEO on our way.

I’ve had two friends mention it to me lately, so I thought, “we really need to give this a try.”  Basically, it’s very similar foods to what we’d eat on the raw foods lifestyle anyway, but they’re cooked in Paleo.

Don’t know what “Paleo” is?

Some people say it’s like eating like a caveman.  But personally, I don’t like that description (sorry if any fellow Paleoans are offended).  I mean really… you don’t think a caveman could have found a cow & milked it?!?!

Paleo is eating meats, fish, fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds.

So, all last week, we decided to make Paleo dinners with at least 1/3 to 1/2 of the meal being raw.  Here are a few photos…

I noticed RIGHT away that my kids stopped complaining about their tummies hurting.  They are already gluten-free, but something had been bothering them that caused them pain daily.  It was always intestinal pain, too.

I was SO thrilled that eating this way was good and healthy for them & could easily be combined with raw foods. 

It’s nice to have an alternative that eases us into more raw foods that’s healthy, too!  And it’s all easy to cook!

Now… for this week’s menu…
