Paleo Craze-y

Tell the truth.  How many of you are interested in at least learning a little bit about what’s so special with the Paleo diet?  Well.  I am.  So I’ve been on a hunt for awesome Paleo-related blogs and articles to teach me what I want to know.

Now.  I cannot promise that I will one day follow the diet strictly, but it has spiked my interest enough to eat clean most of the time.  And by “most of the time” I mean when I am not at my inlaws’ house.  For one reason or another, my self control leaves itself at the door.  It’s humorous and frustrating.

Anyway, I digress.  Here are a few of the Paleo-friendly blogs that have helped me learn what this Paleo craze is all about:

everyday paleo – Make sure to check out all of her awesome recipes after you learn a little bit about Paleo!

Paleo Plan – This blog has several articles that are informative in nutrition and fitness topics along with several ways to get started.

nom nom paleo – Ok!  This has to be one of my favorites.  The blog’s vibrant appearance in and of itself makes this one awesome.  Aside from that, though, there’s a lot of information, recipes and resources for your Paleo-viewing pleasure.

Eat real food!

Know Your Food (Forbes Article Included)


I cannot stress the fact enough that people need to understand what is going into their bodies.  Many of us (myself included) do not eat exactly the right foods to keep us healthy.  For that reason (and many others), the least we can do is understand the products that go into our systems and their effects.

*Warning*  The following probably isn’t for the weak-stomached.  It’s strictly for informative purposes only, but you may find yourself gagging once or twice.  Be careful.  😉

Here’s an article with just a few examples of what I mean.
