A Review of the Book Practical Paleo

I just finished my review of Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, BS, NC for BellaOnline. I'll post the link below in case you want to take a look.

First, I wanted to say that this book was hard to get. I went to the library twice, but it was checked out both times. Finally, I requested the book and the librarian held on to it for me once it was returned. I am very encouraged that so many people are taking the time to research methods for healthy eating.

Second, I wanted to give you an update on when we can officially begin our Paleo Journey. The date for our countertop install is Tuesday. I will still need to have the sink put in after that, but I was assured that this is done fairly quickly, usually within a few days. So by the end of next week we will be all set. I am so excited.

So without further ado, you can read my review of Practical Paleo here: Practical Paleo - A Review

The Start of Our Paleo Journey: Research

I've been doing quite a bit of research on the Paleo Diet lately, and I really like what I'm finding out. In fact, I agree with the methodology so much that I am changing my family's eating habits.

Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of a kitchen remodel, which means I have no countertops or kitchen sink. I am using this time to locate recipes and prepare an eating plan. As soon as we get our kitchen back, we are diving in full force.

Why do I have to wait to get my kitchen back? Simply because going Paleo means making everything from scratch. There is a ton of chopping, cooking, and washing that needs to be done. I am fairly certain once I get the routine down, the girls and I can do all the cooking and prep work once or twice per week and just heat everything up on the other days.

Please feel free to join us and make use of the reviews and recipes we plan on posting. I also plan on sharing any health benefits or weight loss we experience as a result of going Paleo.

I'll have a review for you this Thursday or Friday of the book "Practical Paleo." So far I'm loving it.
