Abundance

Abundant shellfishOften times when we embark on a diet our resolve can be  broken by a perception of lack.  We feel restricted in our choices and can get caught up in an endless mantra of those things we are “no longer allowed to eat”. We fall back on will power and then it begins to get really tough because will power alone will always let you down. .  For me, eating paleo brings with it a profound sense of abundance.  We can be so creative with this food the colours, textures, smells they seem to call for a response from us and overtime, an ability to cook instinctively and well, will follow.  And yes I still burn the sweet potato chips when something distracts me (ask M and the kids)!  Last night the bananas caught fire under the grill ( don’t ask me how………..) The key seems to me to  keep the kitchen well stocked with a variety of good things: fresh veg, the best meat you can afford, free-range eggs, trusty bits of cookware oh….and an ability to step into the kitchen with an open mind.  One of the best things we do is work with clients in their own kitchens teaching new skills in order to create  food they love.  It’s easy once you let go of your pre-conceptions!

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
