My Journey to Healthy Eating

I've always prided myself on my balanced eating habits, even as a young child. I was addicted to carbs; so much so that my grandparents called me the potato girl after my affinity for potatoes. I was famous for my obsessive two bowls of dry cereal breakfasts and my huge plate of rice (with beans for protein) lunches. I could easily eat half a watermelon or 12 ears of corn in one sitting.

Whole-wheat spaghetti, low-fat salad dressing, whole grain bread, and soybean oil spreads were staples in our house. My mom learned to cook when she got married, and she faithfully made our family of five homemade meals each night. We were all fit and considered healthy, save for a few nagging ailments like my intermittent migraines and my sister's stomach pain.

Until our world came crashing down with my mom's breast cancer diagnosis. As treatment ensued, my mom was dazed; she didn't understand how she could eat healthy, exercise, and still get cancer. She spent hours reading the research trying to get the bottom of this healthy living thing by going straight to the source. She ended up stumbling upon Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions. We started soaking our grains and using more butter.

One night I was bored and started reading the sidebars in Nourishing Traditions. I was instantly fascinated by the seemingly rebellious notion that fat isn't fattening at all, and I was eager to soak up the nutritional information about real food. It was as if something inside of me, long sleeping, had been awakened. I obsessively read the majority of the book, and then Mom bought some paleo cookbooks. Once I had spent months geeking out on the science of this lifestyle, I was all in. I went totally paleo when I was 14, and I haven't looked back. Fast-forward three years, I am a diagnosed celiac, but I am migraine-free and healthy. My sister is pain-free, my mom is cancer-free thanks to treatment, and my family is mostly paleo and gluten-free.

We'll never know why my mom got cancer in the first place, but her diagnosis launched us on an amazing journey of healthy living. I'm still a nutrition nerd, and I hope to become a registered dietitian so I can help people fix their diet and be healthy.

To me, paleo isn't about weight loss, it's not about yes/no foods, and it's not about whether or not chia/flax/yogurt/[insert random food here] is paleo or not. It's about health and that is it. I want to feel my best and show others that they can, too; through eating and cooking real, whole, delicious foods. I'm glad you've decided to join me on my journey.

In health,

Heather Resler

Picky Family to Paleo Family: A Few Tips for the Transition

Many families don't eat healthfully because they worry about the picky eaters' reaction to health foods. My family used to be picky with a capital 'P'. Gradually my mom and I have been able to introduce new foods to the family dinners, and everyone eats a fairly balanced diet. But if we had put heart stew with roasted asparagus on the table three years ago, there would have been backlash. Here are my top tips for transitioning to paleo:

Cook foods in different ways

Mushy steamed broccoli is yucky to even the most seasoned of vegetable eaters, but roasted broccoli with garlic is delicious even to my teenage brother. Another example is my Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, which my family fights over
