“If you could eat perfect, even if it was only for one day, what would that one day look like?” This question has bugged me ever since I started learning about health and nutrition from Men’s Health magazines back in high school.  It became somewhat of an obsession of mine.  I figured that if you […]

If there’s one thing I have realized about spreading the good word of the Paleo Diet, it’s that Americans LOVE their bread.  You can take away their ice cream, you can take away their candy, you can even take away their beer, but don’t you dare touch their bread! I honestly can say that about […]
