Eat Like a Caveman

Ok so all I’ve been hearing about lately is the Paleo diet and how awesome it is. I’m not the only one right? A girl I work with is on it and today she brought in Paleo cupcakes which, to my surprise were absolutely DELICIOUS. I literally couldn’t believe that something made without sugar or regular cake mix could be so yummy. So after eating my entire cupcake we got to talking about what being Paleo was all about. 

For those of you that haven’t heard about the Paleo diet, it basically is a reversion back to what cavemen ate and nothing else. Aka no refined sugar, dairy, legumes or grains. Sounds pretty scary if you ask me. I’m not sure if I could live without cheese….. Anyway basically what you eat on this diet is meat, fish, poultry, fruits, and veggies. 

So, even though my co-worker seems to be gliding through this Paleo diet with ease, I’m not quiet convinced I could live in a world with absolutely no grains or dairy…. Anyone else thinking the same? Can you get enough nutrients? Do you have enough energy to still work out? Does the thing even make you lose weight? Let me know what you guys think, or chime in with any personal experience. I’m intrigued. 

 

ps: here is the recipe for the cupcakes if anyone is interested!

So I’m trying something new…

So I know a bazillion people have blogs. Blogs about this, blogs about that, etc…. Most blogs I’ve happened upon normally have a specific focus like fitness, or recipies, or new fashion trends. But where are the blogs just about life? I’m starting this blog to record trials and tribulations of an every day college student. Not just fitness tips, or recipies, or DIY, but ALL of it all at once (aka like in real life)! I know some days might not be the most interesting… but hey, who knows? I think women have a lot more in common than we even realize and this is why I’m starting this blog. To connect with other women and spread the things I love and learn about the things you love.

Here’s to not being just another blog,
