How and why did Paleo enter your life?

I started to transition to Paleo in October 2010 after joining CrossFit Frederick 4 months earlier. In December 2011, I began to transition my family to Paleo/primal. I have attended the Hartwig's Whole30 seminar and Diane SanFilippo's Practical Paleo seminar. In April 2012, my then 9-year old son had a devastating reaction to a medication to treat ADHD/anxiety. As a result of that experience, and based on a recommendation from a Local farmer, we found our way to a holistic health institute in Leesburg. With the exception of very occasional gluten free treats, we eat Paleo 90% of the time. Our son's health has dramatically improved and we want to expand our circle of friends to include others that eat this way as a family. Not many people in our life, truly understand and get it.

Are there any aching questions you're hoping to find answers to?

Always interested in living Paleo as a family.
