Jassa Compass Banner 580w

Jason Seib and I have been hard at work developing a new program to help YOU. Thanks to the popularity of our podcast and workshops, we have come to understand the importance of offering you a hands on approach to a healthier lifestyle. Knowing that we can’t come to visit and sit with each and everyone of you, creating a digital guide seemed like the next best thing so that’s exactly what we did!

Without further ado, we are thrilled to give you Jassa Compass Courses!

What is Jassa Compass? It’s our teamwork combined to give you a tried and true method via digital guides to a lifestyle that promotes health, vitality, and the body you want. We have created three comprehensive courses for you that include:

Beating Grains

Escaping Sugar 

Sprint for Your Life

Thank you as always for your continued support and I hope you enjoy Jassa Compass!!

Everyday Paleo Workshop Coming to Santa Rosa, CA and Clackamas, OR!!!

Our next Everyday Paleo Workshop is just around the corner!! On August 23rd, Jason Seib and I will be in beautiful Santa Rosa, CA for a full day workshop at Crossfit Force and on September 20th we will be in Clackamas, OR at Jason’s gym, CPC Fitness and Fat Loss!! To register for our next event, follow this link and we can’t wait to see you all soon!

Here’s a bit more about what we offer at our workshops:

Join Sarah Fragoso and Jason Seib for a full day of learning, sharing, and growing together during their highly acclaimed Everyday Paleo Workshop. Why should you spend a day with us? Here’s what others are saying about their Everyday Paleo Workshop experience:

“Thank you so much for this seminar. I’ve been paleo for several months but this seminar was full of information that opened my eyes and blew my mind!! You both have such a wonderful perspective on this amazing lifestyle – I have changed my lens!!” Meghan

“Excellent, enthusiastic presenters! Relevant, humorous, believable! Can’t believe I paid attention for 6 hours!!” Julie

“Glad that you were very casual, real, and laid back! It’s always refreshing when professionals will speak real truth, self anecdotal, with facts to back it, who are truly passionate and understand but will NOT excuse the psychological barriers their students face.” Mathew F.

“I have been trying to eat Paleo since May 2012 and was extremely strict for the first 30 days. I have days where I fall off the wagon, and your seminar was extremely helpful in letting me find my motivation again.” Anna V.

Our full day workshop is all about YOU! If you are a beginner, seasoned professional, athlete, trainer, or curious about achieving peak health no matter what your situation might be, you will leave with a better understanding about how our bodies are intended to be treated as we cover everything from the nutritional input, fitness philosophy, family perspective, and the psychological components necessary to live your best life possible.

Together, Sarah and Jason own and operate the incredibly successful online fitness and nutrition site, Everyday Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness as well as partner together at the recipe and advice blog, Everyday Paleo. Both are authors of best selling books, strength and conditioning coaches, and lifestyle experts.

Help UCSF Conduct a Study of Dietary Treatments for PCOS (Including a Paleo Diet)!!!

A research team at the University of California – San Francisco — Lynda Frassetto, MD, Umesh Masharani, MD, Heather Huddleston, MD, Michael Cohn, PhD, and Ashley Mason, PhD — is getting ready to conduct a study of dietary treatments for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). They will test a paleolithic diet and an American Diabetes Association diet to see if either or both improves insulin resistance and menstrual cycle regularity for women with PCOS.

Thing is, these folks need your help: As many of you can imagine, it is difficult for researchers to land funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to do nutrition-related research in the context of disease treatment or management. This study will give them the early data they need to start large, truly definitive studies of the links between diet (including a Paleo diet) and insulin resistance.

Please check out their crowd-funding website to learn more about the study, the researchers, and make tax-deductible donations to help this research happen. And, if you are going to AHS, one of the backer rewards is having lunch with the researchers – a pretty rare opportunity!

Please help them with this study!

Paleo Treats, The Original Paleo Dessert since 2009 Paleo Treats….. Yes, you can eat super and yes you should, however, life is too short to never have a treat and that’s where Paleo Treats comes in! Paleo Treats offer delicious desserts that won’t put you into a sugar rushed, gut wrenching, toilet bound tail spin and those of you who have my books, like the flagship book, Everyday Paleo, or listen to our Podcast already understand my philosophy on treats. Treats, in my opinoin, should be treated as such and respected as such and for most folks, having treats as an everyday occurance is not the best idea for health or their relationship with food; however, the reality of life is, sometimes we all need a darn good treat! Baking can be fun, but I’m not an excellent baker nor do I have the time, nor do I want to go to 800 different stores to get all the right ingredients but what I do like to do is hop on my computer, click a mouse, and know that in my mailbox will land a box of Paleo Treats for when I need them and then I won’t have to think, worry, or COOK anything at all and what’s even better – I don’t feel like absolute garbage after eating Paleo Treats because their treats have minimal yet quality ingredients and are not sickenly crazy over the top sweet – they are just gosh darn good. My favorite you ask? The Mustang Bar. Yup. Love it. social_media_mustang_bar So, there’s my love affair with Paleo Treats all spelled out for you and now I get to share my love affair with all of you! The awesome folks (and yes, they really ARE awesome, I’m not just saying that) are offering you a chance to try their treats with a 4th of July Celebration giveaway!!! One of you will win 5 of EACH Paleo Treat (which is a $108 value if you were wondering) to share with your family and friends!!! That’s right, you can win 5 Mac Attacks, 5 Brownie Bombs, 5 Cacao Nows, 5 Mustang Bars and 5 of the Bandito! That’s a lot of treats and what a better time than summer, with all the BBQ’s, campouts, swim partys, and weekend getaways, to receive such a great gift to bring along to share with the ones you love.  And now a gift to ALL of you. Anyone who orders from Paleo Treats can use the code EVERYDAY15 at checkout to receive 15% off of your ENTIRE order. Now that’s a sweet deal (pun entirely intended).

*Entering to win is beyond easy. Really easy. Super Doable Easy. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY! Simply go over to the Paleo Treats Facebook page and like them and then post to the comments on THIS POST that you did so. Tomorrow at 11:59am a winner will be picked by random and contacted the next day. That’s it! Now go enter to win 5 of each treat from Paleo Treats and have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!!!

Enjoy!

4Layerbeef&Baconcasserole4 copy

Four Layer Beef and Bacon Casserole

Serves: 8

Prep Time: 35 Minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes + 5 minutes

½ pound (225 grams) bacon

For the sweet potato mash:

3 to 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes (1¼ pounds/560 grams)

¼ cup (60 mL) coconut milk

½ teaspoon dried sage

¼ teaspoon salt

For the cauliflower mash:

1 head cauliflower (1½ pounds/750 grams), chopped into florets

¼ cup (60 mL) coconut milk

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the ground beef mixture:

2 pounds (910 grams) ground beef

1 garlic clove, minced

1 medium yellow onion, diced

8 ounces (225 grams) button mushrooms, diced

salt and pepper, to taste

coconut oil, for greasing the baking dish

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9-by-13-inch (23-by-33-cm) baking dish.

  • Place the bacon on a rimmed baking sheet, place in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until cooked through. Roughly chop the bacon. Set aside.

  • Turn up the oven to 400°F (205°C). Poke holes in sweet potato with a fork. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft and easily pieced through with a knife. The time may range depending on the thickness of the sweet potatoes.

  • While the potatoes are baking, steam the cauliflower. Once cauliflower is fork tender, place it in a food processor or blender and puree until cauliflower becomes soft and resembles mashed potatoes. Then add the coconut milk and salt and pepper and continue to blend until you have a smooth consistency. Remove from the blender and set aside. Clean out the blender for the sweet potato mash.

  • When sweet potatoes are soft, remove their skins and place in the food processor or blender. Blend until the sweet potato breaks down, then add the coconut milk, sage, and salt and pepper and puree until smooth. Set aside for later.

  • Lastly, place a large pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and break it apart with a wooden spoon. Once the meat begins to brown, add the garlic, yellow onion and button mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and continue to cook until the meat is cooked through, then remove the pan from heat.

  • Create the layers: Use a slotted spoon to remove half of the meat mixture from the excess liquid in the pan and place in the prepared baking dish in one layer. Then pour the cauliflower mash mixture on top of the meat and spread out. Then, using the slotted spoon, add the other half of the meat on top of the cauliflower mash. Lastly, pour the sweet potato mash on top and spread it out on top of the meat.

  • Turn oven down to 350°F (175°C) degrees. Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the casserole begins to bubble. Then turn on the broiler to high and cook for 5 minutes to brown the top of the casserole. Let rest to thicken and garnish with the bacon before serving.

George Bryant is the creative genius behind the wildly popular Paleo food blog Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations and New York Times Best Selling author of The Paleo Kitchen. After spending the first 20-something years of his life in a constant battle with his weight, and then nearly losing both his legs while deployed as a U.S. Marine, George took matters into his own hands and began his Paleo journey. What started as a simple place to post recipes for friends has since become an award-winning food blog. After serving in the Marines for 12 years, George now enjoys working full-time creating delicious Paleo recipes, hoping to change many lives for the better by making simple and tasty real food dishes.

Juli Bauer is a self-described foodie who creates Paleo versions of grain-filled favorites on her extremely successful blog PaleOMG as well as New York Times Best Selling Author of The Paleo Kitchen. She started the blog to help friends make the transition to Paleo a little more easily, only to see it grow from a few readers to more than 100,000 and counting in just eight months. The popularity of PaleOMG can be attributed to Juli’s refreshing honesty about her own trials and tribulations and to her mouthwatering recipes — and to her heartwarming personality. But what Juli loves most is having the opportunity to be a part of people’s lives through food. And Paleo food is what keeps us living longer and healthier, all together.
