|me and the cave kids... Cape Cod mini golf|
As recently as a year ago I could have totally envisioned a life without meat. In fact, I even had visions of someday selling my own vegan baked goods. And despite the Paleolithic mentality that running should be only at short distances (perhaps when chased by something?) I cannot get enough of the sport.

But I've spent my adult life on a mission, driven by an obsession to feel my best and learn everything I can about food and health. After the birth of my second child I started to experience a slew of autoimmune issues. Most doctors just wanted to write me prescriptions, but I wanted to understand why my body seemed to be in constant revolt.
I began tinkering with my diet, trying everything from anti-Candida diets to gluten-free and vegan picks. In the meantime I went through a divorce, which only added to my physical stress and frustrations. It did, though, prompt me to finally put my passion to work: I enrolled at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and began my own healthy family cooking company Real Kids Eat Spinach.
While I love reaching out to kids and families about healthy food choices, I understand that Paleo eating isn't for everyone. Since I don't have the opportunity to feature all of the good stuff *I* eat on my business site, I decided to start this blog.
