After the birth of my third daughter, I realized I was fat. I was fat, getting fatter and tired. I was ready to find a permanent healthy lifestyle. I’d had good luck on Atkins several years ago (but “that’s not good for you” lol). I’d tried vegetarian, I tried low fat, I even tried all raw foods; they all left me feeling hungry, tired, moody and/or miserable.
I finally understood I was making myself fatter with every meal I ate. I realized (with the help of Mark Sissons book The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy) if I eat lots of fat, some protein and a few carbs, I lose weight, I’m not hungry and I feel great.
As a pharmacist(find my pharmacist online tips), I see the results of low fat diets every day. That bowl of shredded wheat and skim milk the diabetic has for breakfast, is no different that eating a bowl of sugar. It is painfully obvious to me now. You can’t store fat unless insulin is released. The low-fat diet is the perfect diet for putting on weight. It creates the ideal conditions for weight gain.
The purpose of this web site is not to convince you to eat this way. The decision is yours. But, if you are not in the best condition of your life and are having diseases of civilization, you may want to rethink what you are feeding you body.
The main purpose of this web site is to teach you how to cook paleo. Eating a paleo diet is great for your health, it can be easy to do, and it can be mighty tasty.
Here are some books and videos I found useful when making the switch to paleo.

Enjoy Deadwood – This is my tribute to my current home – Deadwood South Dakota.
Deadwood was made famous during the gold mining days. The characters who where a part of the history are buried in Mount Moriah Cemetery. People like Calamity Jane and Wild Bill.
The small town does not spend all it’s time in the past though, there are plenty of Deadwood Events to enjoy. Start the year off with New Years, then celebreate Mardi Gras and St Patrick’s Day. The Mickelson Trail Marathon is a favorite of runners. Will Bill Days is a great chance to enjoy free concerts and Days of 76 is perfect for rodeo fans. If you prefer iron horses visit during the motorcycle rally. If classic cars are your thing, check you Kool Deadwood Nights.

Enjoy the Black Hills. This is my blog where I talk about all the stuff I love about the Black Hills. There is over one million acres of public land in the Black Hills National Forest. And trails like the Mickelson Trail and Centennial Trail your recreation options are almost endless.
Natural beauty is everywhere. Spearfish Canyon is one of the top place to enjoy that beauty. You can drive the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway to soak in the beauty. But if you want more, you’ll have to get out and hike to amazing places like Community Caves and Devils Bathtub.
