I eat meat. I do yoga.

I love cooking.  I once loved cooking, back before all these food allergies and intolerance made their greedy appearance in my life.

I even had a food blog. I used to get free food to review, and I got paid to host meals. It was fun. Until it wasn’t. Food blogging is taxing. Unless you’re very popular, the only people who read food blogs are food bloggers, and they only read your blog if you first have read (and commented) on theirs.  Irritating, right?

My food blog started to fizzle once I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease (thyroid, auto-immune, sucks bad). Since then, I’ve tried numerous diets including 90% gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, didn’t give a crap, and finally paleo.

Meaty, meat, meat, meat.

If you’re not familiar with paleo it’s a “caveman” diet: meat, good fat (coconut oil, etc), veggies, fruit, and limited nuts. No grains, and I do strictly no dairy (due to chronic hives, yay me!)

The point is I eat meat, and lots of it. That’s right I eat meat. Un-twist your panties, yogis, I am still convicted to honor the practice of ahimsa (non harming). I chose to eat (mostly) meat that is organic and, has been pastured and humanely raised. I say mostly because sometimes its out of our budget.

But, I’m not going to flesh out my eating convictions too much here. Instead, I’d like to introduce a weekly food post. Don’t hold me to it, though. My 19-month-old makes me flaky sometimes.

I’ve recently made a vow to love cooking again — to re-commit to being paleo and share with my fellow yogis some of the recipes and meal ideas I love. ❤

Below is from my first blog, The Ex-Perfectionist. I didn’t do much paleo cooking then, but this looks like it was an awesome paleo meal. 🙂
