Awesome paleo moment?

Have you had one of these? Do you get excited over something you wouldn't have in your pre-paleo phases?

I just had one.

I wrote a haiku about sardines and won a sardine t-shirt. Yes, this is real-life. I am so excited about my free can of sardines as well.

This, my fellow hackers, is a "paleo moment".

Am I crazy to be so excited about sardines?

I think my bone broths are my crowning glory, too. They are a part of a large majority of our meals now. Such glory!

I think my Paleo moment was a couple nights ago when my boyfriend and I were in bed and trying to go to sleep when all of a sudden, he asks me, "Are you not sick at all? 'Cause I've been really sick for weeks and we still kiss and stuff and you're not even a little sick. You're like superhuman. I've never seen anyone with an immune system like yours."
He then asks me to tell him how to not get sick. I simply say, "Just eat like me." He knows I'm gluten-free and that I love saturated fat and I pour a bucketload of salt on everything. Yet he still refuses to eat this way. Ah well.

Mine was when my husband and 8-year-old learned that I had been putting liver in the burger meat. They had no idea and my husband (who rarely ate meat when we started dating) didn't turn green at the thought! My next goals are to get him to try liver by itself and eat chicken off the bone!

Honestly? Every single day. Not bloated. Not constipated. Happy with my body comp. Able to avoid snacking long enough to get hungry. Eat real food that tastes amazing and know when to stop rather than over-stuffing myself. Sleep well. Have lots of energy. Literally not a day goes by that I don't think about how thankful I am to have found this way of eating.

Well, I don't think this qualifies as an awesome Paleo moment, but I can still share for fun:

I was at the farmer's market a few weeks ago and said to the vendor, "Do you have any chicken livers?" And then I smiled to myself and told the guy, "Four years ago I never, ever would have imagined that sentence coming out of my mouth!" (And yes, he did have livers, and the pate I made was amazing.) =)

Everytime I cook a super delicious paleo meal I half expect an invisible crowd to start applauding me. I feel like a little kid again, relearning life! If I had a paleo photo album or collage book, there'd be pictures of me with a big cheesy grin having successfully just made my frist batches of things like sauerkrawt, bone broth and kefir.

Oh yes, I remember those days. I was like a baby talking her first steps...

i get excited for my bone broths! especially when it gels.

i've also learned how to cook meat after years of abstaining from it. i've gotten pretty good.

as for other people noticing, i am a picture of what bad health looks like so nobody really thinks paleo is good for me.
