Hello, I’m Trina.
I’m not a certified nutritionist or fitness expert. I am a proud mom of twin boys, and they both turned out pretty awesome I must say.
I’m also part Italian. I’ve always believed enjoying delicious breads and pastas was my birthright. I love to cook – my specialty is a seven-layer lasagna. At least it was –
All that changed when my husband suggested we try the Paleo lifestyle. He’s obviously not Italian. So I said arrivederci to the primavera, and hello to the Paleolithic.
It hasn’t been so bad, in fact, I feel great on this diet. But being brand new to caveman cuisine, I searched online for more information and meal ideas. Most of the sites I found seemed geared towards fitness buffs who followed a very strict Paleo diet.
I may be new to this, but I get the basics: No grains, beans, potatoes, etc. But if I want to add a little raw honey to something I’m whipping up, I’m going to do it. Go all Fred Flintstone on me if you want, but life is short. And with my list of meal possibilities suddenly a whole lot shorter, I’m looking for a little help.
So all you Paleo newbies like me out there, this is the place where you can sit down with a cup of organic coffee (go ahead, put a little cream in it) and engage in a friendly conversation about the Paleo lifestyle with other like-minded Paleoites who maybe aren’t so Neanderthal about following every single rule like it was chiseled in stone.
I want this to be a place to find information, exchange recipes, share stories, and have fun while we rock the Stone Age world.
New to Paleo? You’re in good company. Come on in and join the club!
