Several awesome books have contributed to my understanding of paleo, health, and overall well-being. If you are looking to expand your knowledge, I recommend:
Here are my favorite web resources for a broad range of information on general nutrition, wellness, and the paleo (or primal) lifestyle:
Mark Sisson is largely responsible for my start into the primal and then paleo lifestyle. Once I read the Primal Blueprint, I was sold. His site is a great source of information and encouragement. He’s got some great before and after stories posted.
I’ve been using Dr. Mercola’s products for years. His coconut oil is awesome! We also use Mercola’s Krill Oil and the children’s vitamins. Great natural health site.
Sean Croxton uses his blog to share health information from industry experts. He frequently offers free online summits, podcasts, and videos.
Melissa and Doug Hartwig have built a business around a realistic, scientifically based, and entertaining approach to starting paleo. I highly recommend their book, It Starts With Food, as well as checking out their site. They offer free printable guides on topics such as seasonal produce, grocery lists, and eating out.
There are so many great blogs out there! Here are some of my favorites:
FarmMatch – Matches buyers with farmers, buying clubs, farmers markets, and restaurants. Azure Standard – Buying club that offers amazing prices on many of the products I use. Benefit Your Life – My favorite resource for almond flour and Pure Wraps. Wallace Farms – The buying club where we purchase our meat. Exceptional quality! Nuts.com – Great resource for bulk nuts, seeds, coconut flour, and dates.
Is Paleo Table helpful to you? My recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists are always free of charge. But if you are looking for a way to show your appreciation, leave me a note or consider making a small donation to keep my costs down. Any amount is appreciated!
There are a lot of different takes on paleo, but this quote from Wikipedia sums it up nicely:
...the "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.
