I’m Rebecca and I’m a bibliophile, a sewist, and now a paleo eater. I began eating a paleo diet after reading The Migraine Miracle, by Josh Turknet, MD. Doctor Turknet advocates eating a very low carb “ancestral” diet to prevent blood sugar and insulin swings triggering migraines. He allows dairy on his diet and I was initially thrilled to have a migraine diet that allowed milk and cheese (my favorite foods!). Unfortunately, dairy is one of my problem foods, so this didn’t work for me. I began to research paleo eating on the internet and found Sarah Ballantyne, PhD whose wonderful site http://www.thepaleomom.com is full of scientific information, yummy recipes and inspiration. I have started this blog to keep track of the paleo recipes I make and to try a greater variety of foods and recipes. I love French cooking and will try to find much of my inspiration there with adjustments for paleo. The French do eat a wider variety of offal and meats in general than Americans. They also eat lots of vegetables. I love the French approach to cooking and truly savoring your food at meal times.
