Answers to questions:

- I have been asked (love you, Jen!) if I am still doing Paleo. Yes, for the most part, I am. My kids do eat their sandwiches on sprouted bread, have peanut butter (as well as other nut and seed butters), but I do try to limit grains to once a day. On taco/quasadilla nights I use romaine lettuce leaves instead of tortillas, and many times my kids think it is fun so they join me.

- I do use many high calorie recipes. Not only am I not scared to eat fat, but I am a huge advocate of doing so. Our bodies need fat, and I commit to writing about that very soon. The recipes contain coconut oil, butter and animal fat. As you fill up on protein, good fats and vegetables (with some fruit thrown in) the body does not need the "bulk" of grains. Many may see my menu, and think that it doesn't look like much, but I challenge you to eat whole foods with good fats for a week and see how full you feel - and stay. ;)
