Bread is my Frienemy.

Breaking up is hard to do.

Breaking up is hard to do.

I love Bread.  We hang out.  I can say that I have a very personal relationship with Bread.  We have always been there for each other.  I like to dip Bread in oil.  Oil with spices.  I like Bread for breakfast.  Bread with Lunch.  Bread with dinner.  Bread dipped in cheese.  Bread dipped in gravy.  In fact, if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life– I’d probably want it to be Bread with things to dip in it or put on top of it.  Now, I am not discriminatory.  All because Bread doesn’t look like it’s Bread-self, doesn’t mean I won’t eat it.  I like Bread when it’s in its cracker form and in its pasta form as well.  Bread. Bread. Bread. But Bread has been misbehaving… and we are now Frienemies.

Here goes Paleo

Go Paleo.

Go Paleo.

 

I cannot seem to shake this bloating business, and now with a fractured foot (thanks Femara!) I am feeling a bit… unhealthy.  It is time to crawl back into the cave, and the Mediterranean Vixen will have to come back at another time– the Cavewoman is here to stay for a while.

First Steps to Cavewomanhood

You can become an Old Fashioned Wife, too!

You can become an Old Fashioned Wife, too!

The very first step is to get a cook book.  I attempted to go Paleo during my two-week Christmas Break from work without one (I’m a teacher, remember?), and it was so boring and bland.  Within two days I was dreading every meal.  It seems like you can’t eat anything delicious when you start Paleo. Not to mention my husband is no help.  He’s a junk food junkie, chips, ice cream, candy… anything that’s not good for you, he loves.  So while I was eating grilled chicken and eggs… again, I was watching him and crying inside.
