I’m kidding. Sort of…
If you’re anywhere on the Paleo map (new to the diet or well-seasoned), your Paleo diet may have come up in a recent conversation or two with your loved ones. I’m guessing that they’ve then done one of two things.
- Laughed out loud, rolled eyes, or tossed you what I called a “crazy” card
- Been interested enough to hear you talk about it, and then laughed out loud, rolled eyes, or tossed you a crazy card
Am I right? But isn’t it your duty to inform people about Paleo? How did you first hear about it?
I wrote yesterday, bragging about my perfect little Paleo family because I was, and am, so very proud. But we’re not perfect by any means. We still have others in the family that we’re hoping to educate, and try to get on board every chance we get. And I’m not so nice these days when they try to fight back, defending for their need or want grains, sugar, and dairy. You’re talking to the wrong lady, people!
But, the topic of families on Paleo is an interesting one, and I wanted to point your attention towards Mark Sisson’s site, Mark’s Daily Apple. Specifically, his article titled “Prodding Parents to Get Healthy.” It’s a fantastic read with great points regarding family, opinions, and the Paleo diet. It will leave you feeling less stressed about getting everyone in your world on Paleo. But please, do keep trying!
