A Stab at The Paleo Diet

The Paleo Diet is something my husband has been dying to try. I on the other hand are very anti diets, I don't like of being instructed to eat only certain items. I prefer to be conscious of what I eat and always strive to choose the healthier option. My husband persisted and asked if we could try it and if it's not for us then at least I have a few extra healthy recipes to add to my binders. We all know I am doing my best to fill up my recipe binders with great recipes so I could not argue there. Last week I logged onto our online library system (Our library system is AMAZING) and requested just about every book on Paleo that any library in Westchester County has to offer. The first book that was ready for me to pick up was Paleo Cookbook for Dummies. (How appropriate!) This was a great book to read first because it outlined the entire diet for me and resolved some grey areas. Now, I am not going to go into detail about the Paleo Diet and what it's all about because let's be honest, I am still researching and I am not an expert but here is the gist:

 I will be sharing any Paleo recipes I conquer, great cookbooks I come across, and any possible health changes in result of the diet.

Have you and anyone you know tried the Paleo Diet?
