January marked one year since going paleo. ONE WHOLE YEAR. More than 30 pounds lost and so much gained. A whole new outlook on healthy living. An immense appreciation for the clean, wholesome food I eat. A fresh perspective on grocery shopping, ordering at a restaurant, reading labels, understanding ingredients, cooking for myself and my family, owning poor choices and rewarding good ones. I originally set out on the paleo journey to get back to a certain number on the scale. That quickly changed when I realized just how much adopting a paleo lifestyle was truly changing my life.
