Talking Paleo With The Merrymaker Sisters


I have found some fab Paleo resources on Instragram and one of my favourites is The Merrymaker Sisters – two Australian sisters living and loving Paleo and cooking up one hell of a storm. So I thought I would ask the girls about how they find Paleo and what motivated them to start eating that way……

We are  the merrymaker sisters: fit + healthy made. Two sisters, e & c who love to find ways to make life fun, tasty and most importantly…healthy!

Our lifestyle revolves around creating paleo + primal + clean eating recipes, being fit and all-in-all? Feeling the best we can inside and out.

When people hear about how we eat, the usual questions start…what’s paleo? What can you eat? More importantly–what can’t you eat? Don’t you miss bread? What do you eat for breakfast though? 

These are definitely the top five questions we answer on a daily basis—and it’s great! We jump at any chance to talk food and health.

Let’s just quickly get the boring bits over…we aren’t nutritionists! We don’t know what preservative 202 is (well we do now because we just googled it!) but we do know what works for us…and it works well! So we follow a strict: ‘do what works for you and what makes you feel good’ policy. We are all about creating a positive environment to make being fit + healthy that little bit easier and a lot more fun!

So why paleo? Two reasons, the first, (a little more common): c had a wedding to attend…in Fiji…meaning bikini…c wanted to look and feel good. Reason #2: since we can remember, e has had tummy issues, we are talking looking six months pregnant at the end of every day. Welcome: PALEO…and the results? We both lost around 10kg (Fiji bikini body: tick!) and e was no longer feeling bloated and sluggish (DOUBLE TICK!)

Not to mention the other benefits of: increased energy, clearer skin, flatter tummies, stronger muscles and general happiness level? Well that is right up there! With so many benefits we think it’s kind of crazy more people aren’t on to it!

So we are feeling good and looking better…there’s no turning back. Over at fit + healthy made we enjoy reinventing meals we thought were going to be thrown in the ‘no column’ forever and making them paleo + primal + clean. Things like  lasagnepancakes, muffins and  chippies and dip. Yes we said chippies and dip! We also have a new found love for paleo no bake cakes…ooo we love cake! These unfortunately don’t last longer than a day in our household (too darn yum for our own liking!)
