I honestly don’t know how my elbows got so lucky.
I’m just a Kansas gal. I’m a nerd. I love Andy Griffith; my first celebrity crush was on Dick van Dyke (no, I’m not 65 – I’m a very reluctant 28); I still don’t know what an LMFAO is; and I’ve won more spelling bees than there are owl figurines in my home.
I have a lot of owl figurines.
. . .
Yet somehow, goofy nerd that I am, I’ve been lucky enough to rub these blessed elbows (by virtue of the Paleo-oriented Jib-Jab going on here and in my Nutritional Therapy practice), with some of the coolest people on the planet:
…my husband – who to me is, like, Zack Morris meets Captain America meets Sheriff Andy Taylor;
…my friends Bill and Hayley of The Food Lovers’ Kitchen, who authored the fabulous cookbook Make it Paleo;
…my Podcast co-host and Balanced Bites Workshop partner Diane, who not only founded the Balanced Bites Universe and the 21-Day Sugar Detox (I did it!), but also authored the upcoming book Practical Paleo;
…The founder of Steve’s Club and passionate Paleo advocate Steve Liberati (sales of Paleo Kits support Steve’s Club – read more here)
…and so many others over whom I’m still star-struck: Nom Nom Paleo (buy this app now) and Fit Bomb; George, the Civilized Caveman; Jen of Jen’s Gone Paleo; and many I’m forgetting because it’s 3AM and I traveled all weekend and what I really need to be doing right now is snuggling. (#excuses)
. . .
But tonight I’m especially proud to say these elbows have talked, laughed, and eaten pastured pork with THE Paleo Parents (not just the Paleo Parents; but THE Paleo Parents). Stacy and Matthew – and their totally Paleo-fied, healthy, rambunctious kiddos – epitomize what it means to commit wholeheartedly to healthy living and both emotional AND physical healing – busy schedules and seeming life-barriers aside. (Short version: They’re proof that NO excuse is greater than the true desire to be well.) Stacy’s story, and her brave before-and-after photos, have inspired more folks than she even realizes - and she’ll continue to inspire through Women’s World Magazine! Check it out!
The article is great – it’s a fantastic read for any Paleo/Primal folk, including newbies. It provides a fair overview of the dietary principles, the importance of grass-fed meats, and the potential an Ancestral diet has to improve lives, but it maintains an “elevator pitch” slant – a perfect tool for introducing a loved one to the principles of Whole Food nutrition. This is one article I’ll surely share with family and friends. Make sure you get your hands on it!
