I live by three rules:
Rule #1: Always make your present company feel most welcome in your life.
Rule #2: Never ever panic.
Rule #3: I don't follow rules that are just stupid.
I taught myself to cook after graduating from NYU's Studio Art program and moving to Lexington, Virginia. My husband graduated there from Washington and Lee. Then, we moved to Austin, TX. I fell in love with cooking and it has taken over as my primary creative outlet. I love learning new techniques and flavors in all my cooking. I am passionate about art, health, fitness and food. My daily challenge, since going paleo, is finding a healthy way to feed myself and my family without being a short-order cook. I used to make three separate dinners, but that was expensive, time-consuming, and frustrating. Three Diets One Dinner is my solution to this dilemma. This blog provides you with healthy, inspired paleo recipes the whole family can enjoy. Occasionally I will throw in a tip or trick on sneaking vegetables in your meals. Living paleo in a non-paleo family is possible.

Why my family Isn't
My husband and son do not always eat the way I do. They eat can oatmeal, cereal and yogurt for breakfast. I probably ate steak this morning. They do not have the horrible issues I have with the standard American diet. It works for them. It does not work for me. That is all there is to it. Of course I encourage my family to eat whole, real foods and stress the importance of avoiding processed junk. You'll notice a lot of sneaky veggies going into my dinners. Those are for all of us, but especially my son. He has such a vegetable aversion that you would think he is allergic to anything green! He throws up on the kitchen floor just at the smell of broccoli. He won't spit out a vegetable he tries--he will project it across the table, along with the rest of his dinner. He won't willingly touch a veggie and its a battle to which I have surrendered. So I hide his vegetables DEEP into food. So I came up with a few tricks to incorporate all of our diets into one meal. And that is how threedietsonedinner was born.
