Before Paleo (january 2011) I was already on my own path to moving away from SAD foods I just didnt have a particular name for it. I think over the past 10 years or so I have become perceived as food snob of sorts. if you have a full family on all sides that eat SAD and althought they all came from "grandma's" ways of cooking and eating fresh and in season have all resorted to packaged this and that. They dont seem to rememeber what plain foods (not bland but not frankenfood) taste like. The family knows that I cant eat red meat due to and IBS issue that has been ongoing for 8+ years and that I prefer fresh (or perceived fresher) foods than MCNASTY, Booger King and Taco Smell, (our lovely names for such places).
If you go out to dinner do you ever feel guilty that because if you a more expensive place has been chosen? (i do realize the expense is relative...better food better health but if they arent eating paleo then they dont realize that concept)
I just keep trying to feed my family as close to Paleo as they will allow and keep trudging forward with myself trying to improve my food sources.
*edited to state that most of this was before paleo so even though i was stating that i wanted better food, i just wasnt losing weight....now that i am losing a little weight here and there it may be sinking in... Theresa
