Swamped? Great time for an experiment!

Hey friends! Happy first day of April (I hope you said "rabbit rabbit" this morning)! As y'all know, I've had a little bit going on lately. So, naturally I thought now would be a great time to start a few experiments. One of which will be trying to eat "Paleo" for a month.

Now, let me be frank- I detest "diets", "plans" and anything you have to read a book about in regard to food restrictions yadda yadda. I also have the rule where I have to hear about something three times from three credible sources before I pay attention to it. Sometime a week or two ago, I'd heard about it again so I started doing research. Turns out, I pretty much eat that way already (when not having a Mardi Gras + Vacation + St. Patrick's Day funsplosion, and I thought it would be a good experiment to try and see if life without cheese is actually worth living (just kidding, sort of).

Anywho, I'm choosing the month of April to do so. No sugar, dairy, grains, booze, or processed foods of any kind. I also get three days this month that I can do whatever the hell I want because life is worth living and I will not be denied that gorgeous liberty.

Ahem. I think this will be a great way to pay a little gratitude to my body. As I walked around the lake a few mornings ago I started saying aloud how grateful I am for my healthy body and that I want to take better care of her (she's the only one I have!). I also thought this may help reset my body after a Winter of comfort food and general laziness and merriment.

I will post a weekly update about it (with recipes) this month in addition to the Friday Happies (because we all love those Happies!).

I'm excited to see how my body reacts and what becomes of it. Any thoughts, questions, suggestions or tips? I'd love to know!

I hope you have  a truly wonderful day!


  1. Stopping by from Yes and Yes...I followed a mostly paleo (with "funsplosions") diet for about two years and I loved it! I felt healthier than ever, loved the way my body composition changed, and always had fun experimenting with new meals and combinations. Once I got used to cooking for myself more and having some paleo convenience foods on hand, I actually felt like it was easier in many typically had fewer ingredients to mess with and so I could focus on high quality, flavorful foods cooked simply. Good luck! :)

  2. Hey Alicia! Thanks for checking out the P3 Society! I have really enjoyed the Paleo experiment. I appreciate your insight and support so much! I have an update for everyone tomorrow too! Have a truly beautiful day, new friend!
