I thought today I'd take a bit of time to share with you some resources to help you learn more about the Paleo and Primal lifestyles. I enjoy these sites not only for their educational value, but also because many of them share fabulous recipes!
Paleo Parents - one of my favorite blogs and favorite Paleo families. Stacy and Matthew are inspirational. They've lost a combined weight of over 200 pounds and now are a Paleo family with their children eating Paleo food as well. They've recently published the cookbook Eat Like a Dinosaur. Their blog is filled with inspirational articles, recipes, and a great overview of the Paleo lifestyle.

- A 40 something mama meandering through life an 8 year old girl (the big girl) who is a ball of lightening and a 5 year old girl (the baby girl) who brightens our lives with her smiles. I'm grounded by my 40 something husband and partner (the hubster) whose quirky mannerisms brighten my days. Our family is rounded out with with an eclectic 21 year old boy-man (the boy) who I hardly ever right about now since he's off starting his own life.
I've been a single mama, married mama, divorced mama, career mama, SAHM, and WAHM. There was a short time of my life when I wasn't a mama, but that was a LONG time ago!
I hold an AA, BS, and MA and most say I'm wasting them by devoting my intellectual capabilities and energy in the nurture of the wee ones that I've been entrusted to raise, but there is nothing else I'd rather be doing these days. :)
I love hearing from readers, so please share your thoughts and leave comments, too!
