Welcome to 80 Percent Paleo! My name is Mark Nuszkowski and I’ve been converted to this healthy lifestyle termed Paleo for a few years now. After the holiday season in 2013, we knew we needed to change the food we were consuming and, as expected, our New Year’s resolution was to change our diet. Starting January 2nd of that new year, we took the Paleo challenge! Those first three weeks were much harder than we anticipated, although after reading up on the challenge, we knew sugar and carb withdrawals were to be expected. Then after those first three weeks, things started to settle in and we became addicted. While we continue on the Paleo lifestyle, we eat that strict (100% Paleo) about 80% of the time.
With the help of Erin and her team at Design by Insight, my first blog ‘Mark in the Kitchen,’ has been redirected and transitioned into 80 Percent Paleo. They have been awesome, designing the logo and overall format for the additions of categories, side-bars, social media interactions, and recipe print feature, among everything else.
Since the creation of my first blog, the idea was to basically create an outlet for me to share the pictures and recipes that I had made in our kitchen. With 80 Percent Paleo, I intend to continue in the same direction, but in a more creative way and share a bit more of myself. There are three additional categories that will open the door into more of our life: boxlife, rants & raves, and travel detour. Boxlife will entail our life as avid CrossFitters, rants & raves will provide an outlet for those moments where you just need to vent, and travel detour will showcase the culinary aspect of traveling.
While cooking is a major hobby and passion, I do have a full-time job and will do my best to post often and hopefully provide answers or comments to as many posts as I can. So welcome, and like or follow me as we continue down this lifestyle…
