I'm a computer consultant and I taught myself to cook with no help! Then, on advice from friends, I wrote a cookbook with original recipes I made for my family in our tiny kitchen and as cheaply as I could! In 2011, I used a Paleo lifestyle to lose over 80lbs in 8 months! My family and I have become so healthy this way! My cooking helped me do it, and I wrote a second cookbook and a website sharing my recipes with anyone going Paleo or a low-carb lifestyle such as Keto. I cook for a family of 4 and its quite a journey!
