But How Do You Really Go Paleo? – A Guest Post from PaleoParents.com

Prolific Paleo authors Matthew and Stacy are parents of three boys and have found a great balance between healthy nutrition and delicious food for their entire family. After myriad health problems, they began their Paleo journey in 2010 and have never looked back. Check out their blog Paleo Parents to read more about their story, access plenty of amazing recipes, and discover their e-books and print books. Their newest book, Real Life Paleo, was published in 2014 and is available on Amazon (read our recent review here). You can also connect with the Paleo Parents via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

We just returned from a twenty-one stop book signing tour and were not at all surprised by the common questions we received, as we are often asked these same questions on the blog – what do you really eat – how do you “go” paleo – and is paleo safe for my kids? It was these questions that inspired us to write our recently released third book, Real Life Paleo. We no longer just wanted to answer these questions with examples from our healthy living journey, we wanted to show people the steps we took to not only adopt a paleo lifestyle, but how we have managed to raise our three boys on this lifestyle, all while making it sustainable for the long-haul.

You haven’t slept longer than a three hour stretch in days, you aren’t sure when your last shower was and still all you want to do is snuggle up with the tiny being who is causing all this chaos. Sound familiar?

Now is a tough time to focus on nutrition, but it is actually a very important time. What you eat now can impact your milk supply, your recovery, your energy levels and even your baby’s health. More than that, even from a young age your baby is observing everything you do and learning from you. Now is the time to start setting a good example and teaching healthy habits to set your baby up for a lifetime of health and wellness.

Paleo Curried Chicken Salad Recipe

paleo curried chicken salad recipe

I really love chicken salad recipes, but my favorite are Paleo curried chicken salad recipes. Maybe I just have a soft spot for anything curry flavored.

Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for a really long time, but I kept putting it off because I didn’t want to the trouble of making Paleo mayo (it’s not that difficult, but it’s also not that easy).

So, when I heard about Primal Kitchen Mayo (ready-made Paleo mayo in a jar that’s created primarily with avocado oil – made by Primal Kitchen), I knew that the first recipe I was going to make would be this curried chicken salad! If you haven’t tried Primal Kitchen Mayo yet, it’s definitely a much easier way to go than creating mayo from scratch every time.
