Going Paleo should be easy, right? RIGHT? The instructions are pretty simple: eat real food. But when I went Paleo it was soooo hard.
First, I had no idea how to cook.
Second, I had no idea what real food really was.
This made my first year look like this: bacon, bacon, bacon & eggs, and bacon.
The second year of being Paleo I went in the opposite direction. With the basics of cooking down (thanks, Google!) it was time to recreate all sorts of things I missed like cake and ice cream. And tomato soup. And meatloaf. I bought Paleo cookbooks. I got a recipe app. I went hog wild. The food was great but I spent hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours in the kitchen. Sigh.
Then I had another baby in 2013 and things had to get simple again but instead of just bacon and eggs a new Paleo lifestyle was born.
I like the easy Paleo stuff.
