At dinner last night our waitress asked my husband and me if we were on some sort of special diet due to the fact we asked if there was sugar in some of the sauces as well as switched out the grains for steamed veggies. Because she was open to an explanation we told her a little bit about Paleo and how it is a lifestyle choice for us and not really a diet. Most people upon hearing that you are eating Paleo will look at you with some sort of cross eyed expression and usually let you know that they could NEVER give up bread, cheese, or beer. In those instances I generally don't go any further with my explanation because I don't feel that I need to defend my choices but instead kindly refer them to my favorite paleo friendly website if they would like to look up some more information.
On another note:
I am still not bored with food which is AWESOME! For the most part I know what I want to eat for each meal and have not been discouraged by any recipe. Even though there are currently only two of us in the house I am ALWAYS making what I think will be WAY TO MUCH. It never really is because either my husband comes home and eats like an animal or I use the leftovers in meals for the next day or two. In the end it saves you time and if the meal turns out to be awesome then you won't mind eating it again for lunch the next day!
