Hey everyone, it's my first post for this blog! I named this blog platonic paleo for a few reasons-one, a few other names I wanted to call it were already taken and I wanted alliteration in the title, and two, like most women in America I have/have had what would technically be termed a shaky or even unhealthy relationship with food. Admit it friends, we think about food (and its ingredients and calories and fat content and so on), a LOT. Maybe we stop short of driving past food's house, or calling food late at night and hanging up, but we are still pretty infatuated with food. Food exists so we can live, and in the case of many paleo-ers, perform. That's it. No need to obsess. I know, so much easier said than done, right? Nonetheless I strive to keep it 'just friends' with food, and I invite you to join and share this goal that fashion magazine editors and Jenny Craig alike would much rather we not have.
It's good food and that's all. Let's keep it platonic, shall we?
