Paleo Cleanse Reset


Can you believe we’re almost a third of the way through 2016? I can’t. If you’re like me then the time has surely flown by and maybe a few of your goals have found their way off track. Now is a good time to take a second look at your goals and find your way back to the path that will help you accomplish them.

One of the first goals that tend to go off track for people is their diet and health focused goals. This is because these goals require daily commitment and a day or two off can easily derail months of hard work.

If this is the case for you, don’t worry. The Paleo Cleanse was set up to help in these instances, it is a 30 day commitment that was created to help you get back on track with eating and living well. Committing to the cleanse for these 30 days will help you break any bad habits you’ve created or fallen back to since the beginning of the year.

If you’re ready to get back on track or need help keeping on progress with your goals, commit to the 30 day, Paleo Cleanse. As always we’re here to help you on your journey.

Happy Reading!

Let’s Talk About Health


Health is a hot topic, and we LOVE that!

No matter what your health views are, we truly believe that the world is a better place when health is a focus. The more awareness there is on the importance of health, the more likely the health industry, our society and our own personal health is to improve.

“Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.” – Stephen Covey

And that’s why we are excited to join Greg Hollenback on his Radio TalkShow, The Modern Eater, this Saturday, December 5th at 6pm MST to talk about Health, Holiday Eating and of course our pet project, PALEO Cleanse.

Want to join us?

Tune in to iHeart Radio and 630 KHOW, Denver’s Talk Station at 6pm tomorrow and listen live.

Can’t make it?

We’ll miss you, but not to worry – you can listen to the full recording after the show by visiting The Modern Eater’s SoundCloud page.

Have an awesome and healthy weekend!

The Paleo Guide To Making It Through The Holidays


Every holiday season we like to cover this topic particularly because being paleo during the holidays can be difficult. There are all kinds of non-paleo goodness about and if that wasn’t enough you have to deal with the stress that comes along with the holiday season.

So to help you out we’ve compiled our best tips to help guide you thoroughly this holiday season. Here’s what we recommend.

Prepare ahead of time- The more you can prepare in advance the better. Try cooking and freezing your meals for the week or make sure you’re loaded up on healthy snacks. If you know you’re going to a party, think about bringing a Paleo side dish or appetizer, that way you know there will at least be one option for you there.

Cheat days- Sometimes you’re going to have non-paleo friendly meals. It’s human and that’s ok. To help minimize how often you cheat during the holiday season try to plan your cheat days ahead of time and limit them when possible.

A special treat- The food is often a staple of many holiday celebrations, think about making yourself a special paleo treat to substitute into your celebration this year.

Stay hydrated- We’re so busy some days that we forget to drink water. Often times when you’re thirsty your brain will get mixed signals and think it’s hungry, staying hydrated will help to prevent these mixed signals.

Simplify– The easier you make things for yourself the more likely you’ll succeed at it. Don’t get crazy with your meals during the holidays. Keeping it simple like a piece of protein and a side of steamed veggies will keep you from wasting time or getting off track.

Don’t stress out- Stress for most people is the number one factor for eating poorly. Try to keep from stressing out, maybe take a walk or a few deep breaths when you feel the pressure.

Restart- Sometimes no matter what you do you get off track. If you get off track, acknowledge that it happened and try to figure out what caused it. Then get back on track(restart), PALEO Cleanse is a great tool to help you get back on track after the holiday ride.

Follow these tips and you’ll keep yourself on track this holiday season.

Happy Holidays!

PALEO Cleanse: Best Practices


It’s hard to believe that PALEO Cleanse has been on the market for over 10 months now!

To all who have read it and supported us, we are forever grateful.

For those of you embarking on your PALEO Cleanse journey, or perhaps redoing it, here are our top 5 all-time best practices:

1. Prepare ahead of time – you’ll be less likely to cheat if you have plenty of good pre-made food options on hand.

2. Carry snacks with you at all times – then there is no excuse for a quick stop at the donut shop!

3. Drink plenty of water – you are about 60% water and your body needs replenishment, plus drinking water helps your body get rid of toxins more quickly.

4. Carry the book/meal plans with you – use the book as your guide and your support–it’s there to help you get through the Cleanse and includes numerous tips to help you along your way.

5. Understand the basic principles of PALEO and review the PALEO FAQ section in the book – beginning with a clear goal in mind and a good foundation on the benefits of Ancestral eating will help you through those tougher times. Confidence and commitment are key–we know you can do it–we did!

And as always if you ever run into questions or want to find out about substituting an ingredient, or if you just want to say “Hi”, we’re here to answer your questions and help you along the way.

Here’s to you!

PALEO Cleanse: Summer Solution


We know that biting into a big juicy piece of steak while your friends are picking away at a tiny summer salad always makes for a table turner. Nobody can ever get over just how much we eat, but the fact is, if you eat the foods that our human digestive system can easily breakdown, you can eat a whole lot more than you ever thought (without the guilt).

But we know it’s summer–the season of more outdoor time and a whole lot less clothing–and we all want to look our very best. The good news is that gone are the days of heavily restricted eating, calorie counting, liquid diets etc. The world has finally figured out that by following a diet similar to our Ancestors, we can happily eat solid, seemingly fatty foods and still look dashing!

In PALEO Cleanse we walk you through 30-Days of Paleo eating with customizable weekly meal plans that are easy to make but delicious and varied enough to keep you from getting bored. It’s a great way to detox this summer without deprivation dieting. Plus, most people drop pounds, enjoy clearer skin and more toned bodies after just a few weeks on the Cleanse.

So now, when everyone is salivating at the grass-fed steak you are happily devouring you can think to yourself, “you need a copy of PALEO Cleanse”! 😉

Happy summer eating, the healthy way,

Throwback Thursday!


It’s a beautiful day in Colorado and we thought it would be fun to reminisce on some of the fabulous moments we’ve shared with you–our awesome Paleo community–over the last year and a half…

Who remembers our first Cooking Demo at the (then brand new) Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage Store in Littleton? 

We baked what seemed a large number of Paleo Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Orange Zest Cookies, but they all got devoured before we knew it!

Cookie Demo

And then there was the whirlwind of our book (now an Amazon Best Seller!), PALEO Cleanse which, after months of writing and lots of eating (we had to ensure the recipes were perfect for you!), left us a little delirious…or so it seems!…

Author Moments

And now, whenever we get a chance to surprise readers across the country, we sign copies of PALEO Cleanse whenever we spot them on bookstore shelves…

This journey has been amazing so far and we thank you for being a part of it.

We firmly believe that your health is your most valuable asset…and we hope in some way we can inspire others to:

Choose Well. Eat Well. Live Well.

Stay tuned for many more Paleo recipes and resources!

Your Friends @ThePaleoPact,

Camilla and Melissa
