Wesley’s Favorite Things

Wesley's Favorite Things, Paleo Parents

At the suggestion of the team, and encouragement of people through social media, we’re working on making simple lists we can share with everyone of things we recommend, use, and love. We decided the best way to start of was with the boys. So, we’re kicking off 2015 of the boys’ favorite things – both from 2014 and what they’re looking forward to in 2015.

Wesley is our youngest, currently 4 years old (his birth marked the start of our Paleo journey!). He is VERY excited to make his first post on the blog. Like jumping up and down squealing to see his face on the website excited. Please, let Wes know you appreciate the time it took him to sit down and do this with us!

Previously our older boys listed their favorite things (Finn here and Cole listed his favorites here). Each of the boys has their own interests, hobbies, and favorite foods – we hope the boys sharing inspires your family to try something new! ♥

Plantain Chips – “I like to take them to school for a snack.”

Wesley’s Words of Wisdom

Batman didn’t get strong by eating junk food. He ate eggs, and bacon, and worked hard to get strong. I eat healthy foods to help me get big like a giant so I can be strong too!

What do you think I would like to try?!
