Keep up your good work. It's great you have found a better path that is working for you.
I want to add just one caveat, because you have newly discovered this paleo diet, you may not have grappled with some of its problems. If you are excluding dairy, and for your children, this is potentially dangerous as we need calcium (and that is 3 glasses per day of dairy! Difficult to get enough even if you do consume dairy). If you are intolerant to lactose, well, that's completely different, but it is a fallacy out there in the 'health' world that dairy is bad for you. On the other hand, I am all for a 'natural unprocessed' approach. So I get real dairy that hasnt been mucked with (local dairies are now supplying some smaller stores - google and you will find out about it for your area, it acutally tastes like real milk!).
The second problem in some paleo recipes I've read is that it stretches the 'no preservatives completely natural' thing into a skewed interpretation that bans 'popular' 'unhealthy' foods (like dairy, like sucrose sugars, like flour), and in some of the diets I've read, promotes refined fructose sugars which are potentially really bad for you (cane sugar (sucrose) is natural too - it comes from a plant! You can get it in its raw form to be unprocessed). Along with these 'artificially healthy' bans, is the problem of going out and buying a whole bunch of 'alternatives'. Time consuming. Expensive. And I get annoyed with diets that promote poor science, and make people busy and poor on top of it all! Anyhow, this last para is my particular bee in my bonnet!
I think it is brilliant that you are going for an unprocessed approach though - nothing but good can come of eating real food
