Paleo Recipes and Real Life Adventures
|Hard to believe this was 4 years ago!
This weekend we took off for Rehoboth Beach, DE and stayed at Brandon’s grandmothers place. We did a lot of lying around on the beach, walking around the shops and boardwalk, paddleboarding and eating! It was a great way to have some alone time away from our busy lives to reflect on the past 4 amazing years.
We have been through a lot (mostly good) and we are looking forward to many more wonderful years together.
One of the changes has obviously been our diet and our healthier lifestyle changes. While we were sitting and chatting over a basket of nachos at Arenas, I told him that it was crazy that this is our “cheat” food. This led to a long conversation about what we would have eaten compared to what we eat now. Here is our list:
Pre Primal Primal
Day 1- Day 1-
App: Meal:Nachos and water
Beer, Nacho’s (cheat)

What a difference in our eating habits. I can’t even imagine being able to eat all that food that we use to eat. Just after this weekend I feel a little icky and I am going on a 21 day sugar detox (just back to basic paleo) No dairy or chocolate or honey for me. I am hoping to get myself into gear in time for OBX vacation in a few weeks.
This was a fun game to play! Look at your daily foods, weekend eating and especially your vacation meals. Try to play this with your family and congratulate yourself on your improvements.
