“Just finished, this book is awesome! I love the plan, it seems very achievable the way it’s laid out. Thanks! I can’t wait to get started!”  Jodi Alex

“Started this week and thank you! Everything makes so much sense and for once I’m exited for my journey to health instead of feeling completely overwhelmed.” Shirley LaRosa

“The Jassa Method book was life changing …and believe me, I have tried everything. I’ve attended Jason’s Seib’s seminar, listened to the podcast regularly and am a member of Jassa Fit but I still got new information from his and Sarah’s new book. Over the past two years, I’ve dialed in the nutrition and lifting weights part but could never get myself to commit to all the other things (probably the more important things) that go along with getting on the path to a healthy body. The Jassa Method helps you understand the emotional and mental aspect of sustainable fat loss in a way that no other weight loss book does – and I’ve read them all.  I would consider myself an expert in all things weight loss…I’ve read hundreds of books, I work in the fitness industry and I still could not get it right. There are so many excuses… My foot hurts, I’m not seeing results fast enough so I give up, it’s too cold out, it’s too hot out, or simply..I just don’t have time. Although I thought this book would be for beginners, I was wrong. I’ve applied the baby stepping methods here to include stress management, moving and mobility every single day since I read it.  And every day, I feel better and better and have the desire to MAKE the time to do this. The section on willpower alone changed the way I think forever. This book has a very caring undertone all throughout….no beating yourself up. In fact, the more you really take care of yourself, the more results you will get.”  Erica

“Outstanding Job Jason and Sarah! You nailed it, you can dial your diet all you want but until you add the right exercise, stress management and sleep you will never be successful. I worked with Jason prior to the book release and it takes some trust to just walk and lift up heavy things instead of doing cardio like a crazy person and to allow yourself to love and accept yourself, but once you slow down and take a deep breath success will come your way! Thank you for writing this book and sharing with the world your knowledge and sincere outlook on healthy living. This lifestyle works!” Erin

“I started my journey into the Paleo world about 4 years ago now but I can’t say I started my journey off on the right foot exactly. As someone who has always loved food I started my journey just focusing on that and turned my love of food into a food blog. The problem was that I was just focused on the food for a long time and it was all I thought about for at least the first year or so of my Paleo journey, that is until I stumbled upon the work of Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso. The first time I listened to their podcast ‘Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness Podcast’ it was as if a light went off in my head. Here were two people talking about so much more than food and soon I came to realize that even though my heart had been in the right place I just didn’t have all the inputs I needed to truly live this lifestyle. I won’t lie and say that everything was perfect from then on but every time I stumbled (sometimes I still stumble), I just go back and listen or read what Jason and Sarah have to say and I pick myself up again. This is why when I found out about the release of the Jassa Method I knew I had to purchase a copy to show my support to two of who I consider the most influential people not only in my journey but in this community as a whole. I have learnt so much from Jason and Sarah, from their blog posts, their podcasts and their previously released books that I knew even though I wasn’t exactly a beginner in all of this that I would still gain something from the Jassa Method. I read through the Jassa Method twice and absolutely loved the way it was written and broken down. I believe my own journey into this lifestyle and that of a lot of others would have been so much more easier if we just had this book a few years earlier! Everything in it, just as everything Jason and Sarah share makes sense and there’s a lot of information out there that is just plain confusing! I’m so glad that this information is now out there in this book for those who are just starting out or who may be struggling with all of the inputs of this lifestyle, the Jassa Method is THE book to help you along your journey. This book has been written with love and consideration by two people who genuinely care about helping others and I genuinely believe it is a MUST have resource for everyone no matter where you are in your journey to health.”  Nazanin Kovács

Barefoot Provisions Holiday Giveaway and Discount! Deliciousness for You and Yours this Holiday Season!!!


Contest is closed! 

Happy Holidays – the big day is right around the corner and I don’t know about your town, but MY town is currently a gridlocked, cranky-pants, wet with rain, rage filled crazy driving, crying children in cart, long-lined, INSANITY FILLED TOWN at the moment. Don’t you DARE run out of toilet paper right now because you will have to go to your local store and face the madness. This is why I love shopping online this time of year and this is why Holidays for our family is about good food, good wine (for us, not the kids), good music, and good fun. Long ago my mom made us all focus on each other during the Holidays (hard to do when you are 13, yes, but I’m so glad she made US the priority and not STUFF the priority because the tradition of each other and love and music and food is still strong in our family.)  Yes, we do give a few gifts, but we don’t go nuts and I try super hard to not get caught up in the madness, because we all know what stress does, and it just isn’t worth it.

So, when an awesome, wonderful, amazing company like Barefoot Provisions goes to the trouble of creating a nifty little Holiday Kit of scrumptiousness that I can choose from to give to folks in my life or just have around my house for my visitors to happily munch on – I am ECSTATIC with joy and cheer and you should be too – no going out in the madness to shop but instead, just a few mouse clicks and a smile and your goodies are on their merry way to your front door.

Even better?? Barefoot Provisions is giving to one of my readers a FREE Holiday Kit!!!!  That’s right – you can WIN all the goodness you see on this page and that’s pretty dang awesome!! All you have to do is head over to the Barefoot Provisions Facebook page and “Like” them and simply comment on this blog post that you did so and tell me which item in the Holiday Kit looks the yummiest to you and why! The winner will be randomly selected at 11:59pm PST on Wednesday the 17th and announced on Thursday the 18th via email or Facebook!

Another gift from Barefoot Provisions for ALL of you – between today, December 15th – December 22nd my readers can use the coupon code BAREHOLIDAY10 for 10% off your order from anything you decide to purchase from this, their Holiday Collection at checkout!! Now that’s the Holiday Spirit in action!  Enjoy!



Mushroom Meatballs with Easy Tomato Sauce

This recipe comes from my book Everyday Paleo Around the World Italian Cuisine.  With December in full swing, easy recipes that nourish your family on cold winter evenings are an absolute must and this recipe fits the bill. My family loves this recipe and I hope yours does too! Remember when you are holiday shopping that all the Everyday Paleo books make wonderful gifts for those that you love. I’ll be back soon with more deliciousness but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy!

Mushroom Meatballs with Easy Tomato Sauce

Succulent meatballs swimming in a sea of easy-to-make tomato sauce! This is comfort food at its finest. Frying the meatballs first will seal in the flavors, and the brightness of the fresh basil at the end ties it all together.

1 pound white mushrooms, finely diced
1 pound ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup Italian parsley, finely minced
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1-2 tablespoons lard, butter, or ghee for frying the meatballs

1 28-ounce can San Marzano whole tomatoes (or other tomatoes of your choice)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup fresh basil, chopped
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
1. In a large mixing bowl, use your hands to combine the mushrooms, beef, garlic, Italian parsley, egg yolks, salt, and pepper.
2. Shape the meat mixture into meatballs that are slightly larger than a golf ball.
3. In a large sauté pan, heat the lard, butter, or ghee over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs to the hot pan, and brown them on all sides.
4. Remove the browned meatballs from the pan, and set them aside.
5. Make the sauce by adding the tomatoes, olive oil, basil, and salt and pepper to taste to the same pan used for the meatballs. Cook over medium heat, and bring the sauce to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
6. Add the meatballs to the simmering sauce, cover, and simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked all the way through.

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 5-6

Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up!

everydaypaleo stuffing-1

I might be too late with this post but for those of you who like to procrastinate (like I do) and wait until the last minute to plan stuff like giant family gatherings that involve hours upon hours of cooking, here’s some recipes that hopefully will help you with your planning for this Thanksgiving week!

Herbed Turkey Breast – For those of you who have a smaller group to feed and don’t want to go for the entire bird, here’s a delicious recipe that involves just the breast!

Succulent Roast Goose from Mark’s Daily Apple – If you DO have a crowd to feed – get crazy and go for the Goose! My dear friend Mark Sisson has this recipe on his site and it looks so darn amazing that I might go goosey myself this Holiday Season!

Everyday Paleo Stuffing – You can also find this stuffing recipe in my Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook! This stuffing is a hit anytime of year but especially for the Holidays and with the crunch of the almonds, savory sausage, fresh herbs, and sweet/tart cranberries – this stuffing can be a meal all on its own!

Cranberry Sauce and Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Gratin – Two delicious side dishes – the Sweet Potato Gratin is a MUST. You’ll thank me later I promise.

Holiday Brussels Sprouts and Garlic Roasted Sweet Potatoes – I made both of these recipes back in 2011 and I continue to make them both every year since! These Brussels are so so so good!!

Spiced and Spiked Slow-Cooked Cider from Rubies and Radishes – Sometimes you need a little motivation to get through all that cooking, and I think this lovely drink that I found over at Rubies and Radishes is sure to do the trick!

Paleo Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich from Stupid Easy Paleo – What do you do with those leftovers? Well, you eat them but you can eat them in this amazingly inspired way that I found over at the Stupid Easy Paleo blog. YUM!!

PIE!! Pumpkin and Apple PIE!! – There isn’t Thanksgiving without pie and the last few weeks Rowan and Jaden have both been randomly shouting out PIE in anticipation of the fact that we are going to make some EPIC pies this week.
