Welcome to my page. I am on a mission to better health and wellness through primal low-carb/keto way of living. I started with Paleo and then migrated to AIP before finding what foods did and did not work for me. From this, note that since I bounce around between AIP, Paleo, Primal and Keto versions of all four, some of the recipes may not fit one guideline or the other, while others may meet a few. I will do my best to note which lifetyle each one is complaint with. I am currently workin on a post explaining the differences between each one.
Hi, my name is Kara. Although there is an About Me page, I thought a front page welcome was in order so that I may properly introduce myself in a more personal level. I have been following a Paleo lifestyle since July 0f 2013, so I am just past my 3 year paleoverssary! While this has been a very challenging and cumbersome journey for me – sometimes taking one step forward and ten steps back, I always got back on the wagon and started again.
I think it took me some time to accept the fact that this would have to be my lifestyle for the rest of my life if I wanted to live complete and happy. Pain free and happy trumps fibromyalgia, Sjogren‘s, Hashimoto’s and hidradenitis suppurativa any day!
While I have come across may trials and tribulations, I have made a point to research, learn, experiment and discern. I am finally getting this and so, I am putting this page together – a bit at time to help others who are looking for answers and guidance on their journey as well.
I have two children. Once is entering her Junior year of high school and is on the poms squad. I also have a 4-year old boy who has eczema bouts with an egg and peanut allergy. I am currently in a low transition to get him on a light AIP Paleo Protocol as well.
I have also recently began a more structured fitness regimen that includes the use of a therapeutic peddler and started using a DeskCycle in September 2016 since I work a full-time job which requires sitting for most of my day. To counter the effects of the damage done by sitting, I have begun resistance training and high intensity interval training (HIRT and HIIT) and active stretch at home in the evenings. I will be adding routines and experiences to the site as well for those who are interested.
But for active fun, I love to hula hoop, jump rope, walk and roller skate!
And since I am new to this and really just finding my way, I am always open to feedback, suggestions, requests and great conversation! Please join me. I would certainly love to have you! We can all learn from one another and enjoy this beautiful world together!
