Lesson learned

  If there’s something I learned during my recent trip to Shanghai, it’s that the fleeting joy of eating everything is not worth it.   I went to Shanghai for a ten day holiday and decided to take a break from my paleo life as well. What harm could a mere 10 days do? Oh, if only I had known! I ate it all: tons of rice based products in all possible forms, candy galore, litres of sweet juices and cocktails loaded with sugar and artificial sweeteners, bread, dairy – the lot. Amount-wise I’d say I ate considerably less than what I do at home due to the heat and being on the move all the time. I wish I had known better.

  I have just discovered that there have been all these comments on the website that I was unaware of!

I am working at fixing this as soon as possible (read: as soon as I can find someone who can tell me how).
