Hi all! I’m Megan, originally MeganPaleo and now, Second Heart Paleo.
What’s the story behind the name?
Long story short, I’m on my second heart and that’s why I eat paleo. At age 14, I received a heart transplant. I was born with a congenital heart defect and had multiple open heart surgeries as a kid, but more about that part later.
My goal with Second Heart Paleo is to share how easy eating paleo can be. I also want to be a voice for the transplant community. A heart transplant is not a death sentence. It’s a gift, a gift to have a second chance to live out your dreams . . . and that’s exactly what I’m doing.
Other random things about me: I have a mini Australian shepherd named Gundy. I love Texas with all my heart. I attended Oklahoma State University (go pokes!) and received a degree in strategic communications. I have my dream job. I’m obsessed with kombucha. If you ask me where I got a piece of clothing, 90 percent of the time the answer will be Loft. I’m a homebody and love a lazy evening on the couch. Lastly, I think I’m hilarious, so please laugh at my lame jokes.
