Hello! My name is Drew Starkey. I've been eating paleo for a little over a year now. I started on the recommendation of a doctor. Over a year ago I had extreme pain in my stomach and esophagus, the acid reflux was way out of control. I had a hard time sleeping and I would frequently throw without warning. After an endoscopy, I was found to have a Hiatal Hernia. Basically, my stomach is tearing through my diaphragm and into my esophagus which can lead to a variety of problems down the road. Since I started eating Paleo, my stomach has been much better. While it is restrictive, I like to approach it's limitations to inspire creativity. I loved exploring and eating foods from all over the world, so this blog is to chronicle my continued world cuisine exploration. I like to use different cuisines as inspiration and a starting point to try and create new dishes for myself. I realize that these are not "authentic" or traditional, but I like them and want to explore the paleo diet beyond just meat and vegetables. I'm also not the paleo police, as I realize from a lot of sites and forums, paleo can mean and be a vastly different thing from one person to the next. I always try and offer options and different ideas on recipes. I hope that this site can flourish and inspire others to try and experiment with some dishes and ideas that are new to them and exchange great recipes. Thanks and Enjoy!
