Testing Paleo, Take #1
If you don't know me, there are a few things you should know about me before I continue with the rest of today's post:
-I like to tell people what to do, and what is best for them. Especially if its something that works for me (i.e., Paleo) So, I might be a little overly excited about the effect/benefits of Paleo when explaining to people. I've noticed this tends to have the opposite effect, and make them think I'm lying.
-I am competitive, and do not like losing.
-Rarely will I ever turn down a bet.
-I am always right (heh).
Yesterday I got home from work, and it was my boyfriends day off, so we were chatting in the kitchen about our days. Somehow (ha) paleo came up, and I mentioned how I still couldn't believe that my allergies disappeared. He gave me a look like "I'm listening to you because I like you, but I don't believe you." So then the following exchange took place:
Boyfriend: "How about we test out that theory of yours?"
Boyfriend picks up our cat, Zoe, and says "Let's rub Zoe all over your face and see."
Me: Already face deep in soft white cat fur "Sure thing!"
So there you have it. Last night, in order to prove to my boyfriend that Paleo has in fact rid me of once bad allergies, I let him rub our cat all over my face. What happened to me after that? Absolutely nothing. Not one sneeze, not one swollen eye, not one sniffle, not one cough. I just don't know what else to say, this is phenomenal.
Oh, and check out this dinner last night: Beef Meatloaf with Oven Dried Tomatoes, and Roasted Cauliflower.
