Day 30 – Farewell to a Challenge, Hello to a Lifestyle

No gluten, grains, dairy, legumes, or pre-packaged food. Yes, that’s right, on February 1st, 2012, we decided to take to take part in a 30 day Paleo Challenge. We knew it would require a lot of research, patience and prep work but here we are, 150+ paleo meals later – successfully complete our first challenge. You may already be thinking the following:
·       I could never live without carbs
·       You boys don’t need to lose weight
·       This is crazy
·       Who has the time?
·       The food you eat must be so boring
·       Aren’t you hungry all the time?

And for anyone that’s been following along, they’ll know, that’s definitely not the case.  We ate gourmet meals, had amazing nights out, and didn’t lose a lb, while simultaneously feeling and looking better everyday.

Although the challenge has come to an end, it’s only just the beginning.  We do plan to continue eating paleo in our home but moving forward, we will approach eating out with a lot more flexibility.  To everyone, thank you so much for following along this challenge.  As the seasons change, and summer inches closer, we’ll continue to post our favourite paleo recipes and adventures throughout 2012 - hope to see you again soon!
