Blackberries (featuring Hurricane Irene)

Our blackberries up closeBack from tea time romp on Ilkley Moor, I’m sure Hurricane Irene has changed course and is currently passing over,  my ears are singing but its exhilarating too.  Back home and we left thick belly pork slices cooking in the oven.

On the way we pass the forest where the brambles are and we stop the car to take a look.  We are so happy to find the blackberries tucked away in a corner. Dark  purple and shiny hiding under the leaves, we grab Rob’s hat and start gathering.  The children love it climbing over the fence to reach the fattest berries, shouting out when the bramble thorns catch their trouser legs, cursing and laughing at the same time.  M directs loudly, his broken rib (sustained during a playfight with one of our boys) making him opt out for once.Windswept boys

We load up once more and drive home.  The door opens to a delicious smell of roasting meat, fat sizzling in the pan.  M opens the fridge door and grabs a bit of liver left over from breakfast and P and me start to make a salad.  We had no idea what we were going to serve with the meat but the dinner seems to grow and take shape without effort.  We throw in spinach leaves, lettuce leaves and P takes some leaves off the herb plants growing on the window sill.  Baby tomatoes, cucumber, cress and then some old polish smoked sausage from the back of the fridge goes in and then because those blackberries look so darn good we chuck in two handfuls of them too!  P makes a dressing and tea is ready.

And doing paleo really is as easy as that.  Do you have a paleo Sunday tea you can share with us?  Get in touch and let us know, we’d love to hear from you.

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!
