Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk

Paleo Takeout. This may seem like an oxymoron, but I’m really excited to say decidedly it is not. Heather and I have gone almost 7 months without ordering in takeout Chinese or pizza, and this book is our favorite new tool in the toolbox to keep that habit an old one. With recipes ranging from pizza, to chicken nuggets, to miso soup, to gyros, this cookbook has all of the recipes you wish would have been “made paleo” with dozens more you’ve likely never tried. We’ve gotten permission to share one example with you below, and you can even enter to win a copy!

Make It Paleo II: Another Staple Paleo Cookbook (and Giveaway!)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Also, if you haven’t been living under a rock, you know that today marks the one month book-iversary of Bill and Hayley’s latest grain-free adventure. You probably know them from either their website, their phone/tablet app, or one of their many other adventures (including most recently chicken raising). In Make it Paleo II, they’ve hit it out of the park with over 175 new recipes that we can’t get enough of. Let me tell you about three of my favorite things about this book.

Family Resolution Revolution Bundle

Tis the season for cookies and hot cocoa with marshmallows and presents galore! It is also the season of resolutions, including many promises to eat and live more healthfully. These resolutions are notoriously hard to keep.

However, having the right resources and having others to help you stay accountable will help you increase your chances of success. I first really paid attention to this after hearing an NPR story back in 2012. Clinical psychologist John Norcross said, “The buddy system works” and “publicly declare your resolution as a family. […] Families can do it all together much more effectively than one alone.” (Check it out here: Making Resolutions That Stick.) This is one of the many reasons Brent and I have been successful in living more healthfully over the past few years; we support each other and surround ourselves with resources and great friends who support us, too.

So, I was thrilled to see that Stacy and Matt of the Paleo Parents pulled together an amazing collection resources to help you, your family, and your friends find renewed health and wellness in 2015 and for many years to come: The Family Resolution Revolution Bundle.

Heat things up with Paleo Grilling: Review & Recipe

TIP: Make sure you read all the way to the bottom because we’re giving away a copy of this hot commodity!

A grill in the backyard, filling the air with sweet and savory smoke foretelling of delicious meats, veggies, and more to eat has been a staple of summer in our families. That being said, at our house, grilling is a year-round cooking option. We love to grill our food, whether it’s hot and sticky or cold and dry outside or anywhere in between. Just thinking about a grill makes me drool.

We couldn’t wait to get a copy of Paleo Grilling by Tony Federico and Chef James Phelan (with a forward by Amy Kubal). Published earlier this summer, this book is the perfect compliment to any bookshelf of healthy cookbooks. Did you get yours? If not, keep reading—we’re going to give you a shot to win a copy!
