Pay it forward

Posted: February 1st, 2012 | Filed under: CrossFit, Paleo | Comments Off

My wife and I first heard about the Paleo Diet in early 2011, around Chinese New Year. I remember this because I had cooked up a new year dinner and invited friends over to celebrate with me.

P: “I can’t eat that, it’s not allowed on my diet”

Me: “What do you mean ‘not allowed’, it’s Chinese longevity noodles. Consumption is required!”

P: “I can only eat foods that were available to cavemen.”

Me: “That’s crazy. I hate you”

Silly me. By March, just two months later, my wife and I both converted over and we haven’t looked back since.

The first time you hear someone explaining Paleo, there’s always a slight pause and puzzled look when explaining how to ‘eat like a caveman’. By this point in the conversation, most people have tuned out and are figuring out how to politely excuse themselves so they can load up on the dessert cart next to you.

So why did it work for us? That’s part of what I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks on this blog. I will share my tips, my frameworks, my best explanations, and the recipes I’ve grown to love.

Why am I doing this? Ultimately, I just want to share my perspectives and help people understand how to succeed on Paleo. It’s done wonders for me and now it’s time to pay it forward.
