In case you missed it, I hit the big landmark this past Friday of 20,000 Facebook likes.  I try to use these milestones as the impetus for some reflection for myself, like:

  • how far I’ve come in my personal health journey
  • how far my blog has come in just 19 months
  • how many people my writing/information has influenced and helped
  • how crazy it is that 2 years ago I hadn’t even heard of the paleo diet and now I’m finishing an encyclopedic book on the subject…

 I also use milestones as an excuse to give a little back to all my faithful readers and followers. It’s because of your enthusiasm, your comments, your questions, your support, your donations, and your connection with me that motivates me to keep writing, to keep researching, to keep experimenting on myself and to keep finding answers.  So, I want to thank YOU for keeping me driven, keeping me on my toes, and making me feel like I am doing something truly important.

Yes, I’m doing another giveaway!!!!

For this giveaway, I decided to pull together some of my favorite resources for people with autoimmune disease (yes, yes, I know my blog has a much broader scope than just autoimmune disease, but since I’m literally just putting the last two appendices together for my book, it’s been on my mind a whole lot lately).  Top on my list is Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo (you can read my full review of this ridiculously awesome book here).  Of course, Practical Paleo is definitely not just for people with autoimmune disease; and in fact, I think it’s the most useful paleo resource book available no matter who you are (it’s a pretty great cookbook too).   A BIG thank you to Diane for donating a copy of her book!


I am also including my favorite e-book resources for people with autoimmune disease, including Mickey Trescott’s The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, which is a rockin’ awesome cookbook no matter who you are.  AND, I’m including a trio of e-book resources for those with autoimmune disease by Anne Angelone:   The Autoimmune Paleo Plan, A Revolutionary Protocol To Rapidly Decrease Inflammation and Balance Your Immune System,   The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol: Foods to Include and Eliminate in The Paleo AIP, and Anne’s latest book The Autoimmune Protocol: 4-Week AIP Menu that’s FODMAP FREE.  A BIG thank you to Mickey Trescott and Anne Angelone who are donating copies of their e-books for this giveaway!!!!  Of course, I’m also throwing in a “It’s Only Effort Until It’s Routine” T-shirt (and will ship it to wherever you live!). So, clearly, while these are great resources for those with autoimmune disease, you don’t need to have an autoimmune disease to enter this giveaway.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

By the way, this is my first giveaway using Rafflecoptor.  I’m mostly hoping that it will streamline the process on my end, but I’m interested to know if you have any comments…  Like it?  Dislike it?

If you are wondering about the e-book prizes, here’s more info:

8673990300_15f16cd8ef_cThe Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook was written by my friend Mickey Trescott and contains 110 autoimmune protocol-friendly recipes including some wonderful treats (and only 3 or 4 are similar to recipes that will be included in my book, so it’s a great compliment to The Paleo Approach). At this time, this book is available as an e-book only. Read my full review here and see preview recipes here and here.

Thanks for the giveaway!

You asked about liking Rafflecopter… have to say, I dislike it. I don’t use facebook or twitter… so my changes to win are reduced 😀 But I never win anyways, so it doesn’t matter I guess….

Wow, very generous giveaway and I am really looking forward to your book coming out! You are one of the best resources I have found for the AIP and you always respond to your fans – love you! =)

This is a great giveaway. I love all the AIP recipes you put up. They are delicious and so helpful for me as I navigate what I can and cannot eat. I can’t wait for your book to be released. :-)

Congrats!! I am soon awaiting the release of your book! You have helped me so much in your informative posts and leading me to AIP diet. It is improving mine and my daughter’s tremendously.

As you know, I have healed multiple autoimmune diseases by using this protocol, and I would love to get my hands on as many resources I can so I can help my clients even more!

I have three autoimmune diseases and can always use more info in this area! Can’t wait for your book to come out. This is an amazing giveaway! Thank you.

Great giveaway! Would love to have these resources for myself as well as family members who are struggling with multiple autoimmune conditions.

Great resources for a giveaway! I would love to have a book to give to a family member! Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

I really appreciate all you do with your blog and your podcast and I am looking forward to the publication of your book.

I have Hashimoto’s, rosacea, arthritis. I preordered your book as soon as it was available, I am counting the days for The Paleo Approach.

The paleo approach seems like a great plan to help with a potentially auto-immune issue that I am dealing with – endometriosis. I would love to win the giveaway!

Congrats on all the likes, hardly a surprise since your blog is amazing!!!! Can’t wait for your book (yes, I pre-ordered on Amazon), but no hurry – you can’t rush awesome 😉

Wow! Great giveaway. If I won, I could just let my friend keep Practial Paleo, which she borrowed from me several months ago. :)

This is a fantastic giveaway. I’ve been a fan of yours for a long time. Thanks for all of your hard work and the wonderful information you share with all of us! :)

I have these books in my shopping cart on Amazon but would love to win them. Thanks for the giveaway. I love to read your articles. Very informative!
