Welcome to Peonies and Paleo

Peonies & roses on the porch

Hello! I’m Victoria and I’m so glad you stopped by!

Allow me to explain the genesis of Peonies and Paleo. I am a Jane Austen-reading, Royal Family-following, beauty product fanatic. I love good food, better wine, and traveling.

I am also recently diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Rheumatoid Arthritis.

In an effort to manage my RA (in conjunction with treatment recommendations from my rheumatologist), I began experimenting with the Paleo approach to nutrition in January 2014 with great success.  Since then my world (and my Twitter feed) is a collision of my favorite style and beauty personalities (none of whom are, to my knowledge, Paleo) and amazing Paleo resources (few of whom pride themselves on being particularly feminine).

Then one day it occurred to me: I can’t be the only one in eyeliner and a pencil skirt at the CSA pick-up!

So this blog is for those who enjoy the finer things in life … for those who are seeking health from a primal perspective … and those who believe the two are not mutually exclusive!
