Topics coming soon! 

NOTE: We will be uploading a re-recorded version of this episode very soon as we've heard from you that the sound was cutting out very significantly from Dr. Scott's audio. Thanks and we're sorry for the issues here! In this episode Diane and Dr. Scott Mills sit down to chat about ways to make the transition to a Paleo diet easier. I apologize that the sound quality early in the show was shaky - internet connectivity issues but I'm pretty sure it cleared up not too far in! We answered some of your questions from Facebook! Joni asks- What are your tips for making the transition cost effective and workable in a situation when one has a significant other who balks at the terms low carb/paleo and what are some tips for working long hours at night and for combating cravings for sweets. Michele asks- I'd like tips for getting rid of dairy and how to make the most of meat and veggie CSA shares. Brittany asks- Where to start? I know I can't flip a switch and change the way I have eaten for 48 years. I keep dabbling but I need a plan to get on with changing my diet. Acadia asks- Snacks and breakfast are the hardest things to rethink. I keep having eggs for breakfast, but having those all the time probably isn't that good either. Kristen asks- Is it better to give my 2 year old daughter white rice with grass fed butter or a white potato with grass fed butter as a side dish? Kirsten asks- The biggest fear for me has been making the fermented things. It's scary to me. Just wish a magic fairy (or store brand) would appear with something that was pure, sugar free, and good to eat. I think it would really help my off and on digestive issues.
