Meet Ally, The Creator Behind Allys Paleo Eats

Ally - Allys Paleo Eats

A secretary by day, a cook by night, but in all seriousness, a want-to-be stay at home dog mom! Lover of animals. Lover of the environment. And Lover of yoga! Currently working on my Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Sustainability and Animal Science. While being the best damn house-wife, pet-mom, and chicken “farmer”. You can find me where the cell signal is non-existent, the people are limited and the views are breathtaking!

Hi, I’m Ally. The creator of Ally’s Paleo Eats. The person who never thought she would know how to actually cook until it came down to having to actually learn.. Especially with being in a relationship with someone who LOVES food, and someone who has an autoimmune disease. I started searching for different recipes on Pinterest. Cooking definitely did not come naturally to me… I threw out a lot of different foods, not because they probably weren’t good, but because I was too hard on myself. I actually hated to cook. Absolutely hated it. But, every night I’d come home, dread cooking dinner, just to do it all over again the following night. I then started to get more into meal-prepping, and cooking in bulk on Sundays, freezing food, and eventually found that I really like to cook.

After realizing what a difference this diet had on me, not only physically but mentally, the positive outcomes it had on my boyfriend (now husband), understanding what foods I can and can’t eat, and getting over the money factors of buying higher quality ingredients, I really started to enjoy learning new recipes and becoming more knowledgable about ingredient substitutions.

Why We Follow Paleo

John has Ulcerative Colitis which is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers (sores) in his digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis affects the innermost lining of your large intestine and rectum. He has suffered from this for most of his life.

So, in 2016 John and I finished building our house and began living on our own. Finally, we decided, this is a fresh start for us, for our health. and for our relationship. We started looking into diets that would accompany both of us. From Vegan to Vegetarian to Dairy-Free and then to a High Meat Diet (Before Keto was a big trend!). Some of the diets, we probably didn’t stick too long enough to reap the benefits- but they didn’t all suit John and I! Many countless hours of internet research, listening to well-known doctors and podcasts, they all had different input. After listening and reading about many holistic doctors, we started to look more into the Paleo diet.
