Just a few of my favorite resources. Very glad that I've embraced the Paleo & Primal template.


  1. Yay! Thanks for all of these resources, Karen. Re: the Paleo/Primal recipes, do you usually just calculate the calories yourself? I've noticed that most "real food" cookbooks/recipes don't include that info.

  2. Ahhh, great question Hils. Here's the scoop. The hard core, paelo principles don't include nutrition stats or any thing like that. Basically, the paelo crowd says- eat clean paleo and you won't need to count calories.

    That being said, I'm a paleo hybrid sort of person. When I was loosing weight,and during the first 6-9 months on maintenance- I did weigh and measure everything. I used my fitness pal to calculate the nutrition information.

    It was my best way to figure out calories, fat, carbs, protein. Now that I've had more practice, I don't have to track that much. But, I did learn excellent lessons from tracking that I absolutely needed to learn. So glad I did. I will do a blog post on that soon, too.

    My "I'm full so stop eating" switch is somewhat broken, so I spent a longer time tracking, until I could gather data on what was working for me before I stopped tracking my food.
