Surviving & Succeeding: a Clean Eating Challenge



Things have been super quiet on the blog front this month – but that’s just because once December hits, our lives turn into a real life version of that movie Four Christmases.

We’ve mostly stuck to paleo during December, but let’s be real – there was a fair amount of cheating.
