Why the Paleo Diet should be a Family Affair

If you have ever been brave enough to attempt a dietary change, you know how difficult it can be.  Even more challenging is attempting that change while the rest of your household eats the same old way.  Why is this so hard?  Well… When you get home from a long day of work on a Friday night and there’s a glutinous, processed, hyper-palatable, calorie-dense, nutrient-deficient plate of food waiting for you, are you prepared to say, “Go ahead guys, I’m just going to whip up some meat and veg.”?

Not likely.  Eating is one of the most communal acts that we participate in and from a social point-of-view, it needs to be inclusive.

Reason #2 is that we eat what is in the house.  Paleo families need to purge!  If the food that makes you feel the best in the short term (and worst in the long term) <your comfort food (i.e. worst food possible)> is close at hand, so is a bad food decision.

Lastly, our favorite reason to serve a Paleo meal is freedom without enabling.  If someone would like to eat elsewhere, they are always welcome to.  No one HAS to eat what you are eating, and you don’t have to serve food that will contribute to poor short and long term health.
