The family and I have been on the go almost nonstop for the past 2+ months. We’ve visited family in Arkansas, been to the zoo, the state fair, the beach, numerous parks, built a tree house and a few plastic weapons, rode our bikes, played with our friends and had a fabulous summer!
During all of that, I thought very little about food or exercise. Eating paleo/primal around family who didn’t wasn’t much of a problem at all. I ate the parts of the meal that fit with the way I eat and didn’t stress about it if I had a treat/cheat now an again. I walked almost nonstop while doing fun things with the kids, occasionally fit in some self-administered yoga and hefted around watering cans and pieces of lumber while working on the tree house and in the garden. And with that philosophy and lack of attention, I don’t think I gained or lost an ounce. I’m pretty happy about that.
Although I didn’t think much about food, I did manage to photograph a couple of dinners and a lunch and made up one coconut flour cinnamon cookie recipe (stay tuned for that on another day). Enjoy!

The kids made this lunch for me today while i was working on the tree house. Lettuce topped with roast beef, cheddar cheese and a mustard smile and heart. <3
