The Dairy Diva Has Your Resolution Solution

Love them or loathe them, they’re here to stay. New Year’s resolutions are a staple in our culture and just about everyone I know makes them. My resolution is to add more protein to my diet. Why?

blog_paleo-veggies

The so-called Paleolithic Diet (Paleo Diet, for short) consists of eating only what our Paleolithic ancestors ate. In simple terms, the diet has one rule: if cavemen didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either.
