Wow. Somehow two months snuck up on me. Two months since my book was released into the world. Two crazy awesome, busy, blurry months. If my book was a baby, I’d just be starting to get a little more sleep at night and enjoying those first real beaming smiles.
As I work on finishing up The Paleo Approach Cookbook (it’s coming together beautifully and I’m so excited about it!), it’s nice to take a moment to reflect on just how amazingly-well received The Paleo Approach has been! One of the things that I’m absolutely adoring is that people who bought the book when it first came out are starting to share their success stories! Actually, it really is like a baby’s first smile! I love it, so keep ’em coming!
This post is a jumble of news, reviews, and resources (it’s a one-stop-shop!). Make sure to read to the bottom of this post for a huge international giveaway to celebrate my book’s two month anniversary and some BONUS COUPONS!
Recent Reviews of The Paleo Approach
There are now over 300 reviews on Amazon.com (with an average 4.9 our of 5 stars!!!!) from regular people who read and loved The Paleo Approach. For me, this is the best part. I mean, I love hearing what my colleagues in the alternative health and paleo movements think too, but it’s the real people seeing real change that really makes me feel just so proud and happy.
But, if you’ve been waiting to see what other bloggers, authors, and the media have to say about The Paleo Approach before getting a copy, here are the most recent reviews. You can also get links to reviews in past Buzz Roundup Posts: Buzz #1, Buzz #2, Buzz #3, Buzz #4, Buzz #5, and Buzz #6.
|“This book is packed with so much valuable and practical information. There’s enough science in there to satisfy the geeks like me while also breaking the science down into simple terms for everyone to get a good basic grasp of the most important principles behind this approach.” – Radicata Medicine|

Book Tour Info:
I will be doing only a handful of book signings over the next few months (I am unable to do more traveling due to the fact that my children are young, we have no family close by, and my husband has his own career). If you live close to any of the cities that I’ll be traveling to, I encourage you to take the opportunity to come meet me and get your book signed in person! Many of these dates/locations have yet to be finalized, but the current list of cities that I’m working on visiting includes:
- Austin (April 11, at PaleoFX)
- New York (April 19, with Diane Sanfilippo and Stacy Toth)
- Reno (April 26, with Robb Wolf)
- San Francisco (Marin County) (May 3)
- Vancouver (July)
- Seattle (July, with Mickey Trescott and Russ Crandall)
- San Francisco (Berkeley) (August 7-9, at AHS14)
A current list of events and links to RSVP can always be found here.
Where can you get my book?
If you’re looking for an independent bookstore that carries my book, use Indiebound to find my book at bookstores in your area. This site is a great resource! You can even find a bookstore near you and contact them to request that they stock my book!
My book is also being sold in every Barnes&Noble in the country.
Currently, Amazon.com is selling my book for 40% off retail price!
The Paleo Approach is also being distributed internationally. Look on international Amazon sites and ask your local bookstores if they have (or will be getting) copies.
Need Expert 1-on-1 Support?
Do you have my book but and need some help? Are you struggling to transition or trying to figure out which modifications you need to do and how? Have you been following the Paleo Approach for a while and aren’t seeing the results you were expecting? Are you having difficulty finding a healthcare professional to work with to answer your questions and provide guidance? Do you think you would benefit from a functional medicine evaluation but can’t find a doctor to order or interpret the tests? Are you trying to figure out what supplements or medications can help your situation and which ones might make the problem worse? Do you have questions that you just can’t find the answers to or need help customizing a Paleo diet and lifestyle to meet your individual challenges? Do you think that you would simply see better results with expert 1-on-1 support?
If you answered “yes” to any one of those questions, then you would benefit from:
It is illegal for me to work 1-on-1 with clients or to provide medical or nutritional advice, but the demand has been extremely high for me to help to so many who are struggling. The Paleo Approach is a fantastic and encyclopedic resource, but it just can’t replace having a smart, informed, compassionate person to actually talk to and get advice from. My solution? I’ve hired four of the smartest, most experienced, empathetic, and passionate professionals I know to provide the service that I can’t. Through a variety of services/packages, Angie, Anne, Amy and Mickey can provide the expert guidance and answers you are looking for. And while I can’t work directly with clients, I am available to my consultants whenever my input is needed.

Paleo Approach-Approved Meals-Delivered
Are you struggling with the practical-implementation of The Paleo Approach diet because of time required in the kitchen and the complete loss of convenience foods? Would some delicious pre-cooked meals delivered to your door make all the difference in the world?
I worked with the good folks at Paleo On The Go to create a fully The Paleo Approach-compliant AIP menu to make it easy for you to follow. It includes some awesome and nutrient-dense options.
Check it out here.
Today I am very excited to announce the details of a brand new *international* giveaway! That’s right; this giveaway is open to everyone! This giveaway is focused on quality skin and body care from companies I know and trust.
One of the things that I discuss in The Paleo Approach is Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and the role that toxin exposure has in the development of autoimmune disease. Unfortunately, there isn’t much science about the role that cleaners and skincare products have for those of us with autoimmune disease, but anecdotally I know many of us find great improvements when we ditch the chemicals and switch to natural cleaning and beauty products. So, that’s the theme of this giveaway: my personal favorite natural beauty and home products! Yes, these are all the products I use myself in my own home!
I want to say a special thank you to all of the wonderful businesses who are sponsoring this giveaway (every item in every package has been graciously donated!).
