Paleo. Whole30. Clean Eating...a little food update!

ok I feel like i need to do a quick eating update here...
I had mentioned recently, here and on Instagram, that the hubbs and I were starting to eat Paleo/Whole30 again.
A few weeks ago, we started the Whole30 challenge which cuts out all carbs and processed sugar.
I went through the awful sugar withdrawals for a few days and already felt better.
I'm a big believer in cutting sugar to lose weight and add health!
(read about my big post-baby weight loss and how I broke my addiction to sugar here)

After about a week, we decided that doing the super-strict Whole30 was not gonna be best for us this time.
That said, we have still been eating Paleo most of the time.
Parker has been doing it about 90 % of the time, and me about 75%,
as I am not trying to lose weight myself, just trying to feel better and have better energy!
And that I do.

It feels good to eat cleaner, even if it's not 100% of the time!

I will be sharing some food ideas, including Paleo and Whole30 stuff, because I know so many of y'all are interested in that! And like I said, even though we aren't doing it as strictly as we had planned, we are trying to eat a lot healthier.

In addition to sharing new recipes and ideas, be sure to check out the Paleo recipes I have posted in the past...
Check out the "Yummy" tab over there ------>
and then look in the Paleo section!

so here are a few of the things we've been eating, just in case you need a few new simple ideas!

Zucchini Bacon side-dish:
Cooked sliced Zucchini in a little bit of Olive Oil on the skillet,
added some crumbled bacon, pepper, and seasoned salt.
Is a really good, easy side dish to compliment any meat, or just a quick yummy way to get a portion of veggies!
