Thoughts

I got these from the library: The Primal Blueprint and Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals.  Very excited.  Now to find time to read them when I should be doing a million other things.  Might have to keep them on the nightstand until after finals.

My opinion: eating paleo is easier than eating Weston A. Price style.  In other words, if you are going to eat a "real" food diet, paleo is the way to go.  I feel like I spend less time preparing food than I used to.  More time planning, because things don't have much of a shelf life, so you have to always be prepared.  But less time actually fixing and cooking food.  No soaked grains, no pots of boiling rice or pasta, no having to make homemade sourdough bread, etc.  When I bake, it is because I want to, not because I have to.  Switching to paleo from a whole foods diet that included grains and legumes simplified things for me.

I struggle with this: giving a brief, accurate, and positive explanation of how and why  we eat "paleo".  These are great thoughts on that topic.
