I am a mom of two boys in Austin, TX and I have been eating Paleo now since September 2013. Before making this change, I had been eating gluten free for about 4 years and dealing with Crohn's disease since I was 14. I used to try lots of diets for my health over the years but finally gave up when the newer medicines were developed and mostly kept me healthy. Maybe because of my earlier experiences cutting foods out of my diet, I really started to love cooking and eating in my twenties. I've experimented and done a lot of home cooking and baking for the past twenty years and eaten a lot of great food in Austin restaurants, so my background has prepared me for the needs of such a new (old) way of eating. This change in eating isn't easy so I hope I will be able to share some of my experiences along the way to make it a little easier for other Reluctant Paleos.
