The Paleo Approach has been available for almost a week and the feedback has been incredible! The reviews have been glowing. The buzz has been, er, buzzing.
I am humbled and thrilled to have this labor of love connect with and excite so many people. As I watch my Amazon ranking climb (Top 100! Woot!), it makes me want to do something special to thank my devoted readers and fans! And, what better way to show my appreciation than AN EPIC GIVEAWAY?!
The theme of this giveaway is Paleo Approach implementation. One lucky winner will receive a huge amount of resources to help them succeed at healing their body and reversing their disease. High quality food and ingredients; resource books that complement The Paleo Approach; cookbooks that provide either all Paleo Approach-friendly recipes or a good proportion of recipes to get you started in the kitchen; even an Amazon.com gift certificate that could be used to buy anything from grocery items to a yoga mat and book on meditation.

This package is going to be an awesome resource for anyone tackling the Paleo Approach to set themselves up for success. US Wellness Meats has several pre-packaged products that will save time in the kitchen and help keep you on track (like pouched wild sockeye salmon, pemmican, and a jerky that is made with just grass-fed beef and salt!). Massa Natural Meats produces awesome quality grass-fed meats. Tropical Traditions produces organic, sustainable and ethical palm oil and coconut oil; stocks some of the best olive oil ever; and sells grass-fed meat and wild-caught seafood. Amazon has just about everything under the sun! You could buy sardines, coconut aminos, digestive support supplements, a yoga mat, a CD of meditation music, or just about anything else you can think of that would help you take control of your health! The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook contains 150 recipes dedicated to the autoimmune protocol. Well Fed 2 has an entire section with modifications for recipes to make them Paleo Approach-friendly. The Ancestral Table will have an online guide for adapting recipes as well. Beyond Bacon contains a huge percentage of recipes that are Paleo Approach-friendly. Practical Paleo is an amazing resource, which tons of great information on digestion and supplements, plus over 120 recipes, many of which are Paleo Approach-friendly. And you know how I’m a big fan of fermented foods? Fermented makes it so easy to make your own!
Unfortunately, due to customs regulations and shipping limitations, this contest is open to residents of the US only.
Note: you can earn bonus entries for buying the book and for tweeting about the giveaway every day (maybe after reading The Paleo Approach, you decide to buy a copy for your friend or family member!). And, while I highly encourage reviews (it helps spread the word!) and these will also earn you bonus entries, reviews are more meaningful if you’ve read the book. This is the reason why I’m leaving this giveaway open for four whole weeks: to give you plenty of time to get a copy if you don’t already have one, read it, and then post your review.
The winner has been selected at random and has been contacted by a member of The Paleo Mom Team, thank you all for entering!
