Having a baby changes your body.
Note, I did not say it ruins your body. Because it doesn't. I think in a lot of ways, my body is better than ever. But then I've got this belly I didn't have before.
It's fine, really. This fat pad was protecting my baby-cake for 9 months. It did an excellent job of keeping her padded, safe, and warm. That's a pretty amazing thing.
However, now, nearly 9 months later, I'm ready for it to go away.
Nursing Elliott has helped a lot, but there's this last 10 pounds that is refusing to budge.
In an effort to lose the pounds and healthify these bods, Brad and I have decided to start eating paleo.
We're not going to be super strict with it. We don't eat a lot of dairy or legumes as it is, so we don't see a need to cute those out completely.
We're also not going to be SUPER strict on weekends. Sometimes, date night requires a burger and fries, knowwhatImean?
However, we do generally eat a lot of grains and sugar. Because I bake. And that is what baking is made of.
So starting yesterday, we've cut out grains and sugar, and I've been cooking paleo recipes.
I found this website the other day, paleomg.com. The girl is freakin' awesome. So many delicious-looking paleo baked goods. I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins last night, and they are to die for. Brad couldn't believe they're paleo.
If all paleo baked good recipes are like this. I think we might actually succeed at this thing.
Has anyone else done paleo? How'd it go for you? Feel free to share any recipes you loved...
