About the Author
My name is Tom and like many people out there, I have stumbled into the world of CrossFit and Paleo. My journey, like most, had it's very unique twists and turns. I am an Army Veteran who was forced to leave active duty following heart surgery. With that, I gained considerable weight and really just didn't pay attention to my weight or health. I was working in a restaurant while paying my way through college. I have always had a love for cooking but I became far more creative while working in multiple restaurants. I finally got out of the restaurant industry and took a good look at life. My wife and I both knew we wanted to eat and live healthier lives. Enter CrossFit and Paleo. She was definitely the driving force to do both as I passively resisted. Of course she convinced me both were a good way to become more healthy all around. We started our journey with CrossFit first then very shortly after followed Paleo eating. Since I already very much enjoyed creating great food in our kitchen, this was a challenge I was up for. After a few months, I realized just how easy and tasty Paleo living can be. My wife and I discussed for a long time how much I wish others could see how simple Paleo can be. Enter Madesimplepaleocom. I have developed many recipes and I am always experimenting with more. Our goal with this website is to show people Paleo eating can be both simple and great tasting at the same time. I want people to know I am always open to suggestions, modifications, and feedback. Like most people that live this life, I don't know it all and I am always looking for another great tasting Paleo recipe. We also know that most people live Paleo-ish lifestyles and not 100% strict Paleo lives. With that, we have added "Paleo-ish" and healthy "Non-Paleo" recipes for those that aren't fully strict about Paleo. So please feel free to leave feedback, leave comments, and send emails if you'd like to be heard. Thanks and good luck on each of your individual goals and journeys.
