I’m beyond thrilled to have partnered up with Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage to visit five stores throughout the state of Oregon for cooking demos/ book signings!!!! I’ll be kicking off my Oregon tour the week of September 22nd and I can’t WAIT to meet you there, cook for you, and of course, sign your books! You’ll even be able to taste the food that I make during the demo and I’ll be cooking a menu straight out of my new book, Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine!! Below is the list of stores I will be visiting. Each cooking demo will begin at 5:30 pm and after each demo I’ll sign books and chat with all of you and of course answer any questions you may have. No need to register for this event, just show up and enjoy! September 22nd: Clackamas September 23rd: Salem September 24th: Eugene (This is a brand new store opening on the 23rd – just a day before my visit, so come see me and check out the new store in your area!!) September 25th: Corvallis September 26th: Medford
So, yes. I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog for a multitude of reasons. Reason #1 – Sanity. I’ve been recovering from the last year of my life and doing so by enjoying my boys, being home, (except for a quick weekend trip to London for the Savory Institute Conference which was very inspiring and life-changing to say the least) and working at our gym, JS Strength and Conditioning. There’s something very therapeutic that happens for me while in the gym with our clients. Real people making real changes. Faces I can see. People that I can hug and connect with. New found health for folks that happens right in front of my eyes. My greatest wish is to share with YOU what I know in order to help you live your best life possible and everyday I wish I could bring you all into my gym and work with each and everyone of you. However, I can’t physically do that so reason #2 things have been a bit quiet here at EP is that Jason Seib and I have been working on bringing you more content that will help you create sustainable change in your life.
If you haven’t yet check out our Jassa Compass Courses, you must do so. The feedback has been phenomenal and the results are that this stuff really works. If you are struggling to get started with this lifestyle or have a hard time sticking to what you know works – you NEED these courses.
Finally, before I share a recipe with you from Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine, don’t miss out on your chance to receive 20 Free Fat Loss Tips, compliments of our very own Jason Seib! All you have to do is sign up for the Everyday Paleo Newsletter down at the bottom right hand side of the home screen no later than Thursday August 14th at midnight PST and on Friday morning you’ll receive these invaluable tips in your first newsletter!! All current subscribers will also receive the fat loss tips so look for those arriving in your inbox on Friday August 15th!!!
Ok, now on to the food. Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine has taken the world by storm and people everywhere are cooking up a Thai storm of goodness but if you haven’t yet picked up your copy, I thought I would share a recipe with you to convince you that this is a book that must make it on your shelves!
As always, enjoy!
Sweet and Sour Stir-Fry
Pad Priew Wan
Like several Thai dishes, pad priew wan is influenced by Chinese food— but thanks to the kick from the chili paste, this is not your typical sweet and sour dish. It’s not too spicy, though, and you can omit the spice altogether to make this a family-friendly favorite.
Prep time: 35 minutes
Cook time: 7 minutes
Serves: 2 to 3
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 pound chicken breast, beef, or pork, chopped
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup diced white onion
1/2 cup chopped pineapple
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
2 teaspoons coconut aminos
2 teaspoons raw organic honey
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon coconut vinegar or white vinegar
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/2 teaspoons Nam Prik Pao (Thai Chili Paste, found at most Asian markets and recipe available in Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine)
Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the meat and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the bell peppers, onion, pineapple, and cucumber and stir- fry for another minute.
Add the coconut aminos, honey, black pepper, vinegar, tomato paste, and chili paste.
Mix together and let cook for a minute, until bubbling. Add salt to taste, adjust the other seasonings as desired, and serve.
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:

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.
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….. 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. 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!!!
