The Bulletproof Cookbook is Finally Here!

Bulletproof Cookbook 2

The Bulletproof cookbook is HERE at last!

NO other cookbook was able to recreate classic recipes—traditional recipes everyone craves (even your non-paleo/anti-Bulletproof friends and family)—until now…

Here’s what’s inside…

Traditional Recipes Made Bulletproof – Make all your former favorites healthy enough to be bulletproof with easy to prepare substitutions for nearly every single kryptonite food or antinutrient you can no longer eat…

“Tastes Just Like Comfort Food” Alternatives – Starch-rich homestyle favorites are made Bulletproof diet friendly enough to even make your mother remember the taste of home when she visits…

• Simple, Delicious, Fast And Bulletproof Easy to prepare even for inexperienced (or actually “I’ve never before cooked a single meal chefs) meals that utilize Dave Asprey’s nutrients instead of the unhealthy processed foods you’ll find in magazine meals…

• Seasonal, Local Whole-Food Guide – Use fresh local proteins, fruits and vegetables instead of “I have no clue where they came from” supermarket imports thanks to the included local and fresh food guide…

• Intolerance And Autoimmune Substitutions – Dozens of included options to help your discriminating palate decide on nutrient options that are healthy and Bulletproof friendly…

And Much, Much More inside the definitive recipe guide designed to accompany the Bulletproof Diet.

I can tell you for a fact, this Bulletproof: The Cookbook is absolutely everything that you need in a recipe guide made for the Bulletproof Diet!

Until now, it’s been difficult to adapt (or nearly impossible unless you’re an expert chef) Bulletproof guidelines to make traditional recipes.

The Paleo View Comes to Minneapolis! #TPVBookTour

Stacy Toth and Dr. Sarah Ballantine

It was such a thrill to meet two of my Paleo heroes: Stacy Toth of Paleo Parents and Dr. Sarah Ballantine of The Paleo Mom!  Thank You for coming to frozen Minneapolis on your tour!

All three of the books presented at the signing are outstanding resources for anyone starting or continuing their Paleo journey, especially those with autoimmune conditions.  As someone who has been through the healing process from two autoimmune disorders (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Celiac) I can attest to the effectiveness of this lifestyle change.

Nearly four months ago, I gave birth to a healthy, happy baby boy at the age of 47.
Testimony to the healing power of the Paleo lifestyle, if ever there was.  And I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight by Christmas, without “dieting” or “exercise” – as a matter of fact, the pants I’m wearing in the picture fit better now than before I got pregnant last year.

I highly encourage you to peruse both websites and all the books, as they have been of great help to me these past three years living the life.  [The Resources tab at the top of this page provides a list and links to the many great contributors I personally respect and follow online.]

Happy New Year!  I wish you HEALTH, wealth and happiness.
(Health most of all, because without it, the rest is moot.)

Simplify Your Life

A New Year always sparks conversations about renewal – out with the old and in with the new, etc.  Simplifying, decluttering and organizing resolutions abound.  It reminds me to go back to the basics.

I found this scrapbook page describing one of my favorite books, Simplify Your Life by Elaine St. James.  I like to read it at the start of each new year, serving as a reminder to be ever vigilant.  While I no longer eat oat bran, many of the ideas in this book are as valid today as they were when it was written in 1994.  (I also love Peter Walsh and his book It’s All Too Much! and the corresponding workbook.)

scrapbook page - SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE

2012 got away from me a bit in terms of organization and process.  I have not been as watchful of clutter buildup and waste.  My wardrobe seems to be the only part of the household that IS still minimal since I went down four sizes and had to replace my wardrobe as many times.  Having a family compounds the material challenge of leading a simple life – not everyone is wiling to let go of things they no longer use!  [I’ve considered myself an “Unclutterer” for many years now, and am a fan of the blog by the same name.]

The biggest challenge to order in our house is Legos, Legos and MORE Legos!  They are impossible to contain.  Aah!  They might be the best toy ever, but they are a housekeeper’s nemesis!

Enter Paleo Lifestyle Magazine (January 2013), publishing an interview with Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist.  [It is now one of my favorite blogs!]  His story reminded me of my core values and has inspired me once more.  Too much stuff gets in the way of life and drains energy.

So, in the interest of getting back to basics this year, our family will be doing some serious, long-overdue decluttering.  My son just grew into the next size of clothing and I have already sorted out his clothing and prepared donations.  I think our biggest challenge will be the toys that have built up over the past year or so.  I’ll have to think about how to manage that process to minimize resistance.

The first step in the process is determining how we envision our living spaces and functions.

We recently had some water damage repair completed in the basement, resulting in new paint and flooring.  Time to change it up and re-purpose the space.  It was my son’s “run around and get crazy” room in his toddler years, but now that he’s eight, it makes more sense to turn it into a Lego building studio.  Biggest benefit?  Mama doesn’t have to LOOK at that mess of bricks every day!

Prepare for the domino-effect!

Garage and shed sorting are on the calendar for Spring.  Right now we are frozen under a sheet of ice, so it’s not practical to tackle it yet.

My goal is to focus on intentional living in our space.  Everything has a purpose and a place.  Some of Joshua’s posts have given me new perspective and I plan to refresh my memory on the principles of Feng Shui and Ayurvedic traditions for further guidance.  We’ll take it one space at a time so it isn’t overwhelming.  Every journey begins with a single step, right?

Are you going back to basics?  What are your desired outcomes for 2013?  Your plan?
