I was always a chubby kid. Growing up in a family where cooking and eating was a show of love, I couldn’t be anything but fat. My cousins lovingly told me that I was just big-boned, but when I started shedding weight my senior year of high school, I realized that I wasn’t big-boned, I was just big.

After years of yo-yo dieting and trying all the latest diet fads, I realized I had nothing to lose by switching to a Paleo/Primal diet. However, never being one to stick to rules, I had to adjust paleo/primal eating to fit my lifestyle.

Cutting out all sugar was fine as a short-term solution, however, I have a major sweet tooth and still enjoy a once weekly splurge of processed sweets.

PaleoCookiest was born out of necessity – to hunt and gather guilt-free, gluten-free, paleo-friendly and primal-friendly, cookie and dessert recipes.

 After all, living a healthier lifestyle doesn’t mean that I have to give up on sweet indulgences.  And you don’t have to either. Let us eat cake…and cookies…and pie and…enjoy sweets guilt-free!
