My name is Ali Gutierrez-Romine. I switched to a primarily paleo diet after nearly an entire life of vegetarianism, and about two years of Crossfit. I no longer Crossfit, and I have adjusted my diet to include “non paleo” things like rice.
First and foremost, this is a blog about food and eating paleo with the non-paleo people you love. I love to cook and feed people delicious homemade food. This website is not about the underlying reasoning or beliefs of a paleo diet. Sometimes the label “paleo” puts people off. I’m not hunting and scavenging my own food, don’t be ridiculous. However, I do believe that a diet that is primarily comprised of whole foods is best. I don’t think most people would argue with that. If you’re more interested in the science about paleo, or you are interested in the primal lifestyle, I’m not the person to consult. There are many other websites and people who cover this 10x better than I ever could or would want to.
When I’m not experimenting in the kitchen or working out, I teach history at a local university. I came to paleo while in grduate school, and now I’m done with my PhD. Though I don’t work at a gym, I am a Certified Personal Trainer.
I am happily married to my spotter/husband/best friend/ partner in crime =)
