In case you haven't heard, the Paleo diet is here to stay. And while I think there are close to an equal number of detractors as there are fans, there are actually plenty of reasons for going Paleo. While we were eating Paleo, my husband's Crohn's disease went into remission, my hypoglycemia disappeared, and we both felt more energized than either of us could remember.
Still, with the popularization of this way of eating (and its renowned association with CrossFitters), there has been some misinformation floating around, as well as a whole lot of stereotyping going on. When someone hears that I've been eating Paleo for a while, there are always a flurry of questions about it. Some of them I'm happy to answer every time, because I hate the misconceptions about this way of eating (for example, that it's all MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!).
Of course, there are always the questions that make me want to scratch my eyeballs out, too. If someone asks me about bread and pasta one more time, I may need to excuse myself and scream into a pillow. For now, though, I'll list them all here in the hopes that, if you aren't Paleo, you'll learn some new and interesting tidbits about this way of eating. And if you are Paleo, you can commiserate.
