I am gearing up for another 30 Day Paleo Challenge (I've done a couple already, to various degrees). Starting August 1st, I will be avoiding grains, dairy, legumes, refined sugars, and fake fats. What will I be eating? Meat, vegetables, good fats, nuts, and some fruits. Sounds crazy, right? That's what I thought at first too, but I tried it, and I loved it. I love the way I feel when I'm eating really strict Paleo. My skin clears up, my mood improves, and my energy is steady. I actually start to crave meat and vegetables! If you are thinking about trying Paleo, stop thinking about it and just try it!
Here are my favorite resources for all things Paleo:
Awesome blog with tons of amazing testimonials and an explanation of all the science behind the Paleo lifestyle.
Great recipes! Sarah Fragoso is a busy mom of 3 who switched her whole family to the paleo diet. I also love her podcasts, although she hasn't done one in awhile.
Mark's Daily Apple
This site has lots of interesting information for inquisitive, science-minded folks. Every Friday he publishes a success story. The recipes are a little too strange for my taste.
Nom Nom Paleo
She photographs all of her drool-worthy food and inspires me to eat more vegetables.
My Primal Passion
Although she has stopped posting anything new, the archives contain great meal ideas and lots of weight-loss inspiration.
The best thing about this blog is the lunchbox ideas. She has blogged a couple hundred lunches that she's packed for her husband and her preschooler.
Tons of recipes!
