Join moms Sarah and Stacy on The Paleo View Podcast: Parenting, Science & Gossip for a Happy & Healthy Family
Sarah Ballantyne, co-host
Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D. is a scientist turned stay-at-home mom who blogs at www.thepaleomom.com. Sarah discovered the paleo diet toward the end of her 120-pound weight loss journey while searching for a solution to her continuing health problems. As a follower of the paleo diet autoimmune protocol, Sarah is continuing to experiment with her own implementation of a paleo diet and lifestyle to reach that lofty goal of perfect health.
Sarah has successfully transitioned her husband and two young daughters to a paleo lifestyle, with noticeable improvements to the whole family’s health. She enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and sharing her successful recipes, including recipes for everything from one-pot dinners to paleo versions of kid staples to breads and decadent paleo desserts.
Most of all, Sarah’s passion is to share her biology, physiology and nutrition knowledge through informative posts that distill the science behind the paleo diet into approachable explanations. Don’t miss her special segment each show, Science with Sarah, for tidbits and takeaways related to our weekly topics!
Stacy Toth, co-host
Stacy blogs at PaleoParents.com with her husband, Matthew. She brings home the bacon from working in a corporate world full-time while Matt is a stay-at-home-dad taking care of their 3 young boys – Cole (born 2005), Finian (born 2008) and Wesley (born 2010).
A “recovered vegetarian of 7 years”, Stacy lost her gallbladder in 2009 and has Celiac disease. She is on a journey for finding the perfect personalized paleo plan for her health and wellness. After writing a nationally best-selling book, she was featured in Woman’s World Magazine as a featured Paleo success story from losing over 135lbs using an ancestral approach to health.
Although only paleo since May 2010, Stacy has always practiced attachment parenting – an expert on breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby wearing and co-sleeping she loves talking babies and anything parenting related! After embracing a paleo lifestyle, she has learned tips & tricks with incorporating this lifestyle into a success story for normal, everyday families. You can find her wisdom in the Paleo Parents’ book, Eat Like a Dinosaur, a Recipe & Guidebook for Gluten-free Kids or in their free downloadable guide, A Paleo Approach to Parenting.
Matthew McCarry, producer
Matt, the 2nd-half of PaleoParents.com and co-author of Eat Like a Dinosaur, makes divine grain-free, legume-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free (paleo) culinary creations; he is the chef and caretaker of the family. He is also a connoisseur of podcasts; he listens to dozens a week (while performing household chores and trying to ignore wild-banchee-like children). He’s not a huge fan of human interaction (read: social anxiety) but is a huge fan of technology.
Producer of The Paleo View is a title and job he’s excited about, including saving up embarrassing sound bytes to be used against Stacy and Sarah in future editing sessions. Make sure you always listen until the end for his nuggets of humor and fun!
Monica, show notes and support
Monica is the latest member of the Paleo Parents Team! Raised in a full-on hippy house, she was taught to love the land and the animals that feed from it. From old school hog butcherings to berry farm harvesting treks, her parents showed that health began with food choices. However, her teen years brought her down a rebellious path with food and she began to struggle with the world of weight-gain, yo-yo diets, and eating in secret. It wasn’t until her husband nudged her in the direction of the Primal Blueprint that she learned how to break my unhealthy cycle.
Now she is carving out her own hippy life and learning how to raise a paleo family in our modern-day grain and sugar crazed world. Monica can be found at thepaleos.com as well as Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest .
