About Me

Hello, and welcome to Do You Even Paleo!

If you’re here, reading this, then let’s just say you’re giving me the warm fuzzies. For real.

My name is Chelsea, and I live in the really awesome town of Fargo, North Dakota. Yes, I like it here in North Dakota!

Here’s the Do You Even Paleo backstory:

In May 2013, I was going through a rough patch in my life. After dealing with far too much drama, I found myself depressed and struggling with the bottomed-out self esteem that had plagued me my entire life. I’d had enough of feeling like life was a burden. While browsing the internet, I happened to see a quote that resonated with me: “When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy.” Within the same week, I discovered what Paleo and CrossFit were. I kept reading peoples’ anecdotes about them – how, after going Paleo/starting CrossFit (or both), they felt happy, empowered, invigorated. That’s what I wanted in my life! I promptly signed up for a local CrossFit box and cleaned out my pantry. Grains, gluten, legumes, sugar, soy, dairy, and preservatives were all purged.

Those actions changed my life.

About a year after finding CrossFit and Paleo, I realized I needed a new hobby. I’ve always been interested in blogging, so that’s where I turned! I started this website as an outlet for me to share recipes, knowledge, and whatever my innocent heart desires.

While I am not a nutritionist, dietitian, or even something close, I hope that what I share on this website is helpful to someone wanting to make healthier decisions just like I sought to do. Or someone who just wants to make really good food. No, I don’t have a fancy camera.  I do the best I can with what I have.  Maybe someday, though!

Thanks for taking the time to read! If you’d like to contact me for any reason (sponsorship, guest blogging, or just to chat), please contact me at chelsea(at)doyouevenpaleo.net.

  2. Hi Chelsea

    I am reaching out to you on behalf of Rootz Nutrition, and wanted to check in and see if you have any interest in becoming a brand ambassador for our company!


    Rootz Nutrition is a recently launched company that offers a Paleo-approved energizing powder and a complete protein+superfood+greens powder made from real, wholesome foods. All of our products are free of artificial ingredients, GMO’s, coloring, gluten, dairy, soy, and are organic.  We strongly believe that what is left out of a product is just as important as what goes in.


    The inspiration for Rootz came when I had taken up the Paleo diet in 2011, and was left with virtually no options for energy or protein supplementation. I began to realize that most of the products on the market were loaded with chemicals and artificial ingredients, often times dangerous, and almost always doing more harm to a person’s body than good.

    I wanted something that was made from real food ingredients that I could actually pronounce, but would still give me results. To my frustration, every product I had tried left me disappointed. The energizing powders were too weak, and the protein powders either didn’t taste good, or didn’t have the well-rounded nutritional profile that I was looking for…. So I went out and made my own products that I could feel good about putting in my body.

  3. I just have to say that your gluten free lefsa recipe is amazing. I have made it twice now and it tastes just as good or maybe even better than the traditional recipe my grandma used growing up. Thank you so much for sharing it. Peace.
