Like a lot of married men, I occasionally get involved in things that interest my wife, but not necessarily me. As an admitted curmudgeon, my initial instinct is to resist. After all, why should we do new things? Especially when the old ones have always worked so well? As I’ve grown older and hopefully more mature, I’ve learned to take this in stride. After all, marriage is a partnership and it cuts both ways. In other words, sometimes you just have to go along.
So when she decided to immerse us into the Paleo lifestyle, I was somewhat reluctant. No bread? No grains? No sugar?!?! I thought she was joking. But when I saw the almost immediate and positive change it made in her life, I decided to give it a try – and I’ll never go back. I feel better, I look better, and I’m in the best shape I’ve been in since college. Of course, “Paleo” means more than just what you eat; it’s an approach to life that’s simple, but not simplistic, and highly satisfying. I’m happy to share my view “from the cave” on this blog, and I hope you enjoy reading it.
