Going Paleo & Feeling Better!

Paleo Stuffed Mushrooms
About a month or so ago, I decided to go full blown paleo. 
It happened after suffering from a frozen shoulder for over 6 months. As you may have read, in some of my earlier posts, I have tried a few different things, even though the doctors said, "it's a matter of time," and that it wasn't clear what has caused this. (Hint: STRESS).

I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all the Paleo bloggers out there, who have made my transition from 'I'll eat anything' to Paleo both easy and even quite fun: Here are two who I especially appreciate, for their plentiful and easy recipes!

Elana - from Elana's Pantry
Ciarra - who I just today discovered via her blog on PopularPaleo.com.

I sometimes post my Paleo food online on Instagram: AudreyCreativity - Instagram.

My family thought it was just a little craze, a fad I was going through, so I had to sit them down and tell them to help me, and they did! And yes, I'll cook up pasta for them to add to my slow cooked stews, or whole rice (which I help myself to also sometimes).  It's not so hard, except when I have a craving for something special, and some starch that isn't orange colored!

But the good news, and I'll end with this, is that about one week into eating Paleo, my pain levels decreased so much that I went totally off any pain medication, I started to sleep through the night again, and even enrolled at the gym recently. My physiotherapist (manual therapist) is seeing me only once every two weeks now, instead of weekly. I'm on the mend, my friends! Yippee!
