I was recently chatting with one of my girlfriends from college, who is fairly new to Paleo and she said that she printed out my 30 Paleo Tips and Tricks to Live By and pasted it on on her fridge. She is finding the most useful tip to be #27: Read and follow Paleo blogs and books regularly. The more paleo in your head, the easier it is to stick to the diet.
I have to say that I agree with her! When I first started Paleo, I found that the more educated I became about health and nutrition, the more Paleo became a lifestyle, instead of a temporary diet.
I always found podcasts to be one of the best ways to stay informed. First, they are so convenient. I had a 45 miles commute each way to work, and I pretty much survived it because of podcasts. But, if you are not a commuter, you can listen to them while you cook, clean or take a stroll. I also like how relevant they are. Since they are being recorded weekly, they can respond to current topics, such as research that is making media headlines. I also enjoy the Q&A format. I always learn so much from other people’s questions and concerns. I have listened to a lot of Paleo podcasts and I wanted to share my top 5 with you!
This is the podcast of Liz Wolfe (of Cave Girl Eats) and Diane Sanfilippo (of Balanced Bites). These 2 Paleo nutritionists are incredibly knowledgeable and I appreciate that they present the information in a way that is easy to follow, even for those that are new to Paleo. Plus, their podcast is funny! Do you read Cave Girl Eats? It is easily my favorite health blog. Liz is one of the wittiest people I know (in the internet sense 🙂 ). Between the banter and the awesome info, I always feel motivated and inspired after an episode of Balanced Bites. I also had the pleasure of joining Liz for episode 86, to talk all about my Paleo pregnancy and Paleo baby!
This is the podcast of 2 of my favorite Paleo nutritionists, Caitlin Weeks (of Grass Fed Girl) and Mary Vance (of Mary Vance, NC). Health Nuts is a holistic health podcast specializing in gut health, hormone balance, thyroid health, stress reduction, exercise, Paleo/Weston A Price, whole foods, food allergies and gluten free. I recently had the pleasure of being on this podcast too, to talk about my Paleo pregnancy and feeding my Paleo baby!

I have been listening to Chris Kresser’s podcast from the beginning and I don’t miss an episode. Chris is my go-to for all health and nutrition info. I appreciate his thorough research and thoughtful answers. I also like that his approach in preventing and reversing disease naturally, leverages modern science, as well as the wisdom of traditional cultures.
This is the podcast of Dr. Dan French and my friend, Amy Kubal. This podcast is seriously hilarious. I had to stop listening to it at work because I kept LOL-ing so hard that it was bordering on embarrassing. Amy told me that I should come on some time, but I told her that I am not funny enough to hang with her and her co-hosts! This podcast is a great way to learn a thing or 10 about Paleo and health in general, while getting an ab work out in.
The Paleo View is the podcast of Stacy Toth (of Paleo Parents) and Sarah Ballantyne (The Paleo Mom). These two lovely ladies answer questions about health, Paleo and parenting. Their podcast offers the perfect amount of science, in the science with Sarah segment, balanced with practical advise on adapting a Paleo lifestyle. If you are new to Paleo, they have serveral episodes dedicated to Paleo diet basics. I also had the pleasure of joining Stacy and Sarah for episode 33, where we talked all about breastfeeding and first foods!
