REVIEW: It Starts With Food (and ends with great results!)

Before I embarked on the strict Paleo type challenge created by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, I was super skeptical. I thought the whole Paleo thing was just another fad that would soon fade out like bell bottom jeans! I was pleasantly surprised with how addicted I became to the 30 day challenge and eating plan.

Simple Thai Curry

This is one of those recipes we like to go to quickly. Cook some chicken, throw in some veggies, add the curry paste and go.

“I don’t have time to eat healthy!” “Eating clean is too expensive!” “I just have to grab something when I can.”Does this sound like you? It sounds like me too, not long ago.
