Good Food Tools

Here are a some of the health and wellness resources I use and love:

Books

  • It Starts with Food by Melissa & Dallas Hartwig.  This book is gold – seriously.  It explains the science behind the paleo lifestyle in a non-sciencey way, and goes into detail of why sugars, grains, dairy and legumes are not good food choices.  It is also the bible for how to manage your Whole30.  A must read for anyone new to paleo.
  • Well Fed & Well Fed 2 by Melissa Joulwan outlines great easy ways to prep food and always have something paleo in the fridge.  Have tried several recipes which are all easy and delicious!
  • Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, a fellow NTP.  A fantastic resource on nutrition and health including several meal plans from strict paleo to managing auto-immune and thyroid issues.  Some really good recipes in here too.  She’s recently released an updated version too.
  • I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson.  Sarah’s books and blog are not fully paleo – but a lot of the recipes are, and the book it just so pretty it make you want to eat it all up!
  • The Paleo Approach by Dr. Sarah Ballantine outlines in detail how and why to commit to an autoimmune version of Paleo, a must for those needing to trouble-shoot their Paleo diet.
  • The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook by Mickey Tresscott. Mickey shares beautiful recipes from her whole food kitchen.

Websites/Blogs
