Expat Paleo

An expat mom tries to stay sane and paleo while living in Moscow. Nutrition, Recipes, and Fitness

Web Site:

I relocated to Moscow in Summer 2012 with a newborn and a six-year-old (and, I almost forgot, a husband). I expected a challenging practical environment but thought I would be in a land awash with real food from real farmers. Boy, was I in for a surprise. Moscow in 2012 is a different, wonderful, and a challenging place.

In addition to being a mom I am also a certified personal trainer, certified Les Mills Body Pump instructor, and am currently studying to become a Metabolic Effect Nutrition Consultant. I have a B.A. in mathematics as well but I find working in the field of fitness and nutrition more enjoyable and rewarding.

Keeping a Paleo lifestyle is not easy here, but it is possible. Here’s what I am learning, day by day.
