There are many things I swore I’d never be: anything but a stay-at-home mom, someone who likes to exercise at the crack of dawn, or a coffee snob. And yet, here I am. The things I used to think people were crazy for doing, I now do them.
The final realm of Crazy for me has always been the Paleo diet. I have a few friends who are really into the CrossFit/Paleo lifestyle and, no offense, their Facebook posts are basically all photographs of steak, an Instagammed plate full of broccoli with steak crumbled on top, or a picture of them jumping into a pool. Of steak. Enough with the MEAT photos and the posts about how many burpees you did! You crazy!

On a whim I bought a Paleo cookbook from the grocery store last week and have been reading it in earnest. I know that so much of what we eat most days is “filler” and not the optimal choices we could be making for our family. Our kids enjoy a wide variety of fruits and veggies, but also a hearty dose of bread, pasta and sugar-filled garbage, too. I have always held fast to the mantra of “everything in moderation” but there is so much crap in our food these days that I don’t know if I want it, even in moderation. There are many changes we can make and I am just in a state of wondering what the next step should be.
I am not ready to take the plunge just yet. But I am considering dipping my pinkie toe in the pool.
