First off – thank you so much to those of you who shared your Thanksgiving experiences! It was so fun to read what everyone ate (and equally what you avoided). And even those of you who “fell off the wagon” really didn’t do too badly in my opinion. So congrats! And you can consider Thanksgiving a great practice run for Christmas and New Year’s Eve coming up :)
My curiosity for how it went for you really lies within the discussions that come up regarding paleo. I found that the more social situations I was in when I first started Paleo led me to do more and more reading and research so that I could truly explain why I choose certain foods over others. (I went to a few baby showers where all I indulged in was the drip coffee, and somehow that doesn’t go unnoticed!) And thus, the inspiration for this blog was born as well.
I wish people would understand if I said something as basic as, “I choose nutritious foods over foods that are less nutritious.” But, my experience has taught me it’s just not that simple to reverse,wipe out, and reeducate several years of incorrect knowledge about nutrition. Sigh. Hopefully a few people read this blog and learn a thing or two :)
And if not, here’s at least something that might make you giggle and cheer you up this weekend. Maybe it doesn’t paint paleo or crossfit in the best light, but if you’re a part of either world or both, you’re sure to enjoy this. Jake shared it with me late last night, and I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants.
So here’s to you, wetting yours :)
Happy eating :) Joey
