Over the last month we've been fortunate to create some relationships with some very talented people. These are the cream of the crop of paleo chefs and recipe creators. We thought it would be cool to help you get to know these creative individuals a little better.
So we asked them some questions and they were cool enough to take the time to answer them. Every week we'll be highlighting a new paleo recipe blogger that we've partnered with at PrimalPal.
This week we're talking with Brittanie from the blog Three Diets One Dinner. As you'll see, her blog was created out of necessity and we're glad it exists. Brittanie shares her amazing paleo recipe creations on her blog and she even has a section on her blog where she provides information on paleo friendly restaurants in Austin, TX.
Let's get to know the self-taught paleo chef from Three Diets One Dinner.
Meet the Paleo Blogger - Brittanie of Three Diets One Dinner
[PrimalPal] Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where you're from, what your hobbies are and where we're likely to find on the world wide web.
[Brittanie] I'm from Houston, went to school in New York City, moved to Lexington, VA when my husband was in law school, and have finally settled in Austin, Texas. I love cooking for my friends and family and my creative outlet has become food.
I am the social director for the Austin Food Blogger Alliance and started a nationwide network called Paleo Pen Pals. I was the food and beverage director for PaleoFX in Austin, where I emceed and hosted cooking demos with some of the biggest names in Paleo.
I am working on my first cookbook, "It's Paleo, Y'all," featuring real recipes inspired by Texas. You can find me on my blog, www.threedietsonedinner.com, twitter, pinterest, facebook.com/threedietsonedinner and facebook.com/paleopenpals.
[PrimalPal] Why did you decide to go paleo/primal with your nutrition?
[Brittanie] I suffered from chronic fatigue and digestive issues. I have seen enormous benefits from paleo. Not only did it improve my weight, energy, mood, skin, and digestion, but I feel younger and stronger than ever. I have not been sick in two years since eating this way.
[PrimalPal] What has been the biggest challenge with going/being paleo/primal? How do you overcome this challenge?
[Brittanie] My daily challenge, since going paleo, is finding a healthy way to feed myself and my family without being a short-order cook. I used to make three separate dinners, but that was expensive, time-consuming, and frustrating. Three Diets One Dinner is my solution to this dilemma. The blog provides healthy, inspired paleo recipes the whole family can enjoy.
[PrimalPal] What's your go-to kitchen tool/gadget/appliance that you couldn't live without?
[Brittanie] My cast iron skillet.
[PrimalPal] What is you're favorite paleo dish/recipe to make and eat? Why?
[Brittanie] Paleo pizza. My whole family gets involved in adding the toppings. It is fun to make and enjoy together.
[PrimalPal] Parting Shot: What's the biggest lesson you've learned so far from eating and living paleo/primal?
[Brittanie] Treat your body like a luxury car. You wouldn't put regular gas in a tank that takes premium. Focus on the nutrient density of your food and avoid toxins.
