Paleo Pantry Supplier: A Quick Review of Nuts.com

Nuts.com Review by Jadah West

Jadah West is the Executive Editor of Paleo Living Magazine. She’s also the founder of Salted Paleo. When not running Paleo Living Magazine, Jadah loves to spend time at the beach, at her beloved CrossFit, and working as a model.

I’ve been ordering from Nuts.com for years.

From experience, I know the company to completely stand behind their products, have decently fast order to ship times, and be responsive in customer service.

And the branding on their packaging, as insignificant as it sounds, is so adorable! It makes me get a fatuous smile on my face every time I open a delivered box.

Paleo Deliciousness in a Bar: Review of RAWNOLA Bars

Earthling Organics Rawnola Bars Reviewed

Jadah West is the Executive Editor of Paleo Living Magazine. She’s also the founder of Salted Paleo. When not running Paleo Living Magazine, Jadah loves to spend time at the beach, at her beloved CrossFit, and working as a model.

Over the past few years, it’s become increasingly popular to add fats into coffee. Various cultures around the world (Tibetans for instance) have been doing this for centuries, but it’s caught on very quickly in US, especially among those in the Paleo community.

However, I happily tried their RAWNOLA bars, hoping to find another great Paleo product.

Paleo Food Delivery – Review of Kettlebell Kitchen

Review of kettlebell kitchen

I wish Kettlebell Kitchen had been around when I was still living in NYC!

We arrived back in New York City in September tired but happy from our stay in Edinburgh for the summer. We were only going to be in New York for a week before heading to California, but I was excited to see the city again and to catch up with some good friends.

What made our stay in New York even more exciting was the Kettlebell Kitchen delivery we got the first day!

How to Supercharge Your Paleo Coffee – Review of Coffee++

how to supercharge your paleo coffee

Jadah West is the Executive Editor of Paleo Living Magazine. She’s also the founder of Salted Paleo. When not running Paleo Living Magazine, Jadah loves to spend time at the beach, at her beloved CrossFit, and working as a model.

Over the past few years, it’s become increasingly popular to add fats into coffee. Various cultures around the world (Tibetans for instance) have been doing this for centuries, but it’s caught on very quickly in US, especially among those in the Paleo community.

The general idea is to add healthy fat into your morning coffee to give your brain an extra boost.

These fats can take several forms (butter, ghee, coconut oil, MCT oil, etc.). Once added, the coffee is usually blended.

Nutritional therapist Lisa Fossey says “This gives you a slower ‘high’, which will last for longer, and won’t give you the usual surge of energy that can lead to a crash. The caffeine dilates the blood vessels, allowing the good fats and oil to pass more easily into the brain, where it is thought to give increased mental awareness and concentration. MCT is metabolized to produce ketone bodies that provide energy to the body and the brain.”

I had yet to make this super coffee for myself, so trying Pure Indian Foods’ Coffee++ was my perfect chance.

Coffee++ is a new product, and it combines ghee (clarified butter) with MCT oil, so that you don’t have to do it yourself.

Paleo Salad Dressings from Nature’s Palate – Paleo Product Review

paleo salad dressings from natures palate product review

I met Darren, one of the co-founders of Nature’s Palate, a few months ago in Toronto at an entrepreneur conference. It was a really small conference (100 people), so I was shocked to find someone else running a Paleo business. Apparently Paleo is really popular these days!

Nature’s Palate is a food company focusing on quality ingredients and amazing tastes while making eating healthy easier, and so I was really excited when Darren shipped me some of their salad dressing all the way from Canada.

Paleo is so easy.  Just eat real food.

Except…it’s often much harder than it seems.

Giving up foods is not easy to begin with, and then what happens if eating the way that you’re “supposed” to doesn’t actually work?  What if you still can’t lose weight, solve digestive issues, or feel better?

Fortunately, there are people who’ve been through this journey before you.  Alison Golden is one of them.  And she’s picked up a lot of wisdom along the way.

Sarah Fragoso

Overview of Book:

If you love Thai food, then this book is definitely for you. It’s got everything from oyster sauce (page 58) to mango sticky rice (page 218) and green curry (page 136).

Sarah Fragoso of Everyday Paleo travelled throughout Thailand and her recipes are filled with authentic spices and flavors. There’s even a section at the end about her family’s travels through Thailand. I especially loved reading about the different cooking classes she took and the markets they visited (it really reminded me of my visit to India where I took 3 cooking classes in a week!).

Keto Clarity – Book Review

Keto Clarity by Jimmy Moore Book Review

Keto Clarity

Book Authors:

Jimmy Moore with Eric C. Westman, MD

Overview of Book:

This book has everything you need to know about being on a Ketogenic diet – from what is ketosis, answering criticisms of a ketogenic diet to how to make sure you’re producing ketones.

And if you’re wondering what ketosis is, then here’s a quick definition for Keto Clarity: “a metabolic state that happens when you consume a very low-carb, moderate-protein, high-fat diet that causes your body to switch from using glucose as its primary source of fuel to running on ketones.”

As Jimmy goes on to explain in more detail, “Ketones are actually the preferred fuel source for the muscles, heart, liver, and brain. These vital organs do not handle carbohydrates very well; in fact, they become damaged when we consume too many carbs.”

The diet that induces ketosis and ketone production is called the ketogenic diet (or often shortened to the keto diet).
