I can’t count how many times I have been asked how I manage to eat the way I do.  I’ve been doing it so long now I guess I don’t even think about it.  A paleo diet is not a complicated one unless you make it.  It’s the people that try and make all the box foods for themselves at home that have trouble.  I will occasionally make the homemade pizza or gluten free pancakes to indulge, but 90% of the time I keep it clean and simple.
