Learning how to afford and eat paleo as a family - A mum's post

So Anthony had his one year anniversary this summer that just passed.  We have been moving towards eating Paleo as a family.  This has been harder for me.  Being pregnant I found it hard to keep myself from just going to bread and peanut butter and sometimes jam.  Along with other things that are sweet to the palate, many other things. 
Right now I still haven't done much reading on the subject.  I have been busy with parenting books, Bible studies and canning.... lots of canning!  I'm both excited and scared though to see that I feel better when I'm eating more along the Paleo way.  I've noticed myself feeling sick when I eat potatoes and sometimes bread.  I'm excited because I know that I'm feeling better when I eat healthier, but scared because I don't want to seem ungrateful if offered food by a generous friend.  It's hard to say no for me.
The other challenge is our new baby.  We now have a 3, 2, and 1 year old and a 2 month old.  It ends up that someone gets a bee sting while I'm breastfeeding and simultaneously someone has accidentally tied themselves to the neighbors slide with their skipping rope, all while I'm thinking.... "What's for supper?"  Paleo does not offer a myriad of "quick meals"  most are quick if planned ahead but not on a whim.  So to make life a bit easier I've been planning out our weeks.
