Man. I feel like today should be Friday. Anyone else? This week has been the slowest and longest at the same time. But...my husband comes home today! I really don't know how single moms do it. Hats OFF to you because it is a challenge. He's been having moutains of fun at an annual tax conference with his co-workers and this little dog of ours has been missing him big time. He just acts differently when Ryan's gone.
I feel like last night's post was a bit dis-jointed and quickly written. Which is how I write a lot of times but that's beside the point. Anyways, I kinda wanted to clarify a few things.
1. I don't mind at all fielding questions about the way I've been trying to eat. I love it in fact! I could talk to someone all day about it. The main thing that frustrates me is that I felt like the idea of reducing/eliminating gluten was looked at as a fad. And many people DO look at it this way. I would have looked at it that way too, a year ago. If you don't think you've bought into a fad by thinking that Coke Zero is "healthier" in some way because its looked at as a "diet drink" and has no calories (big clue here that something's up!) well...
2. Paleo is a word I'll continue to use. Obviously since it's all over my blog. :-) Paleo this, paleo that. Yes, there are some variations but we're talking about pretty much the same thing. Meat. Veggies. Fruit. Healthy Fat. I'm not on a diet though. I'll talk more later about what Paleo is and isn't.
3. I am not some kind of super woman who eats well all the time. Has the last month been a HUGE improvement for me compared to prior months? Yes. Am I trying to be a little extra strict for personal health reasons? Yes. Do I think you're a bad person because you drink a diet coke or eat bread? NO! I'm just passionate about this subject, the more that I learn and experience. And I never want to come across as an uncaring slap you across the face with whole foods kind of person. I apologize in advance if I do.
Ok. I need to make my house look presentable so my husband think it's stayed like that the whole time. :>
Potluck Friday tomorrow!
