  • Female Paleo bloggers... Grrr!

    Not here so much, but I don't come here as often as I should. I'm a full time, homeschooling mom, so I don't have a ton of free time. Most of my Paleo/Primal sources come from my Facebook account. I can check in once a day (generally after the kids are in bed and before my precious alone time with hubby), see who has what information or recipes to share, take note of anything interesting, go on about my business.

    And I've noticed there seem to be two types of female paleo bloggers out there. The hey-look-at-me-in-my-bikini-I'm-so-hot-and-awesome chicks or the I-can't-figure-out-why-I'm-so-fat-still-but-here's-a-cookie-recipe chicks. WTF? I know I'm not the only female who isn't trying to make this WOE as close to being like the SAD as possible. And I can't be the only one who is okay with still having enough body fat to menstruate.

    As this diet becomes more and more mainstream, is this what we have to look forward to?

        yeah you are

        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

              I don't know what some of your statements mean.

              For example "I'm not the only one trying to make this as close to SAD as possible." I don't understand. Perhaps it is how I was raised. You know, for me, the SAD was really meat, plus veggie, plus grain/potato. That's how I was raised. Tonight, for dinner, I had meat plus veggie plus veggie. That's pretty close to the SAD that I was raised on.

              I also menstruate. I'm about 18% body fat (i figure), and I don't blog, nor do I post pictures of me in my bikini or ask people how hot I am (i'm usually cold anyway). I do think I'm pretty and I like myself, but I don't need other people telling me that, which is kind of nice, I guess. LOL

              So, like, this WOE makes me happy and fit, and I do my exercise (today I just did some yoga. I worked all day, so, like, I mostly worked and then was able to squeeze in some yoga).

              perhaps it's just because I don't have a blog.

              Anyway, I do have to agree about paleo 'treats' blogs and stuff. Like, I read a lot of different stuff and stopped early on because most of the recipes were either A. stupidly complicated; or B. sweets and treats which I thought was not what this WOE is about and, really, not to my tastes anyway.

              yeah.

                Yeah, but blogs are what people choose to show to the world, I've seen plenty of home ed blogs, and met the people who write them, the reality is not always what it appears on the blog, when we've written up what we have done home ed wise it sounds awsome, but really it's been 2 hours of good stuff that happened to happen by luck not pre-planning in amoungst 8 hours or panic, mess, stress, agruments over crayons and sulks over going out, then sulks as after sulking about not wanting to go out, we then have sulks about not wanting to go home. Blogs are defo not warts and all

                    ? I look at - nomnom paleo and clothesmakethegirl and both are fit, attractive and never seen either in a bikini pic plus almost never see paleo cupcakes on their blogs. Good recipes at both.

                              Well, I've found a few good female paleo bloggers.

                              Hunt.Gather.Love. | Melissa McEwen's on food anthropology, economics, and culture
                              Paleo For Women | Blog and Paleo Pepper (same person)
                              This paleo hacks question may offer some useful blogs, too: Female paleo role model - PaleoHacks.com

                              I don't look for recipes in the context of gender. I also stay away from mommy blogger type stuff. I have nothing in common with traditional female womanhood stuff like snot-nosed kids and doting over a husband.
