I love to cook. It’s how I decompress, how I get creative, how I bond with my family and friends, how I justify stuffing my face full of deliciousness each and every day. I have a particular passion for new and unexpected flavor combinations, presentations, and new ingredients. I happen to know, for example, that there is absolutely nothing you can’t do with a slow cooker or a deep fryer. Or offal. Or bacon.
Simply put, Paleo is all about fresh ingredients from reputable sources and raising awareness about where food comes from and what goes in it. I honestly believe that cooking with such high quality ingredients enhances the culinary experience. When I went Paleo, I fell in love with food…not like the fleeting infatuation I used to have for my bagels and tofu and wheat cereal. You guys, I’m talking true, unbreakable love…because this stuff makes me a happier and healthier person inside and out. No Velveeta required.
The blog is my happy place–it’s my creative outlet for food and recipes because that happens to be what I love in life. Obviously, I think the Paleo Diet is the bomb-diggity, but I’m really not here to preach. TGIPaleo welcomes all visitors and no matter what you think about my wack-a-doodle ideas about food, I think you’ll find something you like. I get into a little of my individual food philosophy on the About My Food page, but at the end of the day I’m not here to convert you, I’m here to feed you.
