My FAVORITE place to get recipes and figure out how to cook for the entire family!

Dr. Loren Cordain, the 'father' of the Paleo Diet.  I must admit that while he's not a "paleo hero" of mine, there's a TON of excellent information on his pages.  Here's his webpage:

The Paleo Solution, Robb Wolf:  my FAVORITE person when it comes to Paleo!!  He truly writes geekspeak that ANYONE can follow and understand.  I bought his book, twice!  I have an eBook I keep with me, and a 'paper' book that I seem to never have in my possession as I loan it out ALL the time.  http://www.robbwolf.com/

A blog that answers your questions, seemingly BEFORE you have them!  This site is a place you can ask and get answered your Paleo questions, or search for ones you're sure someone else has already asked.  It's also the place I head over to when I'm needing more scientific explanations.  They do a regular blog, too… just pieces of interest with clearly understandable explanations:  http://paleodietnews.com/

Another site that explains the Paleo diet and lifestyle… http://paleodietlifestyle.com/

UPDATES!!!  There are even more great sites out there now!!

http://primaljourney.blogspot.com/  Primal Journey" has changed to "Hungry for Balance" and she's not only got a great sense of humor, but I love the recipes and helpful advice she posts on her blog.  She, too, has been through it all and is a source of sanity in the insane world of weight loss blogs right now.

The Paleo Mom.  BEST place for information on the AutoImmune Protocol!!
http://www.thepaleomom.com/

http://againstallgrain.com/ Oh my gosh!!  I get my BEST gluten-free, yet still Paleo, desserts from here!!  Just about every recipe I've tried from her site has been a winner!!  She also has other cookbooks out!

http://civilizedcavemancooking.com/  George Bryant.  I was originally drawn to this blog by his honest nature on how being a Marine took a toll on his health and changed his life.  BUT, his recipes kept me.  Great stories and great recipes.  Haven't bought his book yet... I will, though!

AND in leaving one of the best for last:  http://balancedbites.com/  Diane Sanfilippo is a genius.  I first started reading her books and cooking using her recipes when I needed more information about Paleo with Practical Paleo.  she has AWESOME graphics and easy to understand reasons for eating the way we do.  THEN, I came across the 21 day sugar detox and was hooked.  I can EASILY slide down that carb and sugar slope, so have done the detox a few times to "get back on track".  It's NOT easy... but worth it!
