So much is happening out there in paleo land that I thought I would do a recap post of all the madness, I mean GOODNESS! I started my morning chasing around a chicken that escaped, fighting off a totally muddy barking little fur-ball which is my now 12 week old border collie, and waiting impatiently for the coffee to be done before the kids woke up so that I could write this post. Now that constitutes as madness! However, all the amazing books, apps, conferences, workshops, recipes, podcasts, and blog posts that are flying around in the paleosphere are all total goodness…
Alright to keep you in the loop, let’s start with the release of Everyday Paleo Around the World Italian Cuisine. First and foremost; thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your kind words, feedback, Amazon reviews, emails, twitter responses, and Facebook messages. I’m so happy that the book has been well received – I am confident in the deliciousness of the recipes and I have been excited to share our adventures with you and now it’s finally here and I can!!!
On that note, I owe you all a Costco update. For those of you who saw this post, you most likely also saw my edit to that post and yes, there was a major internal glitch and although the books were supposed to hit the shelves of Costco the day of release, they are actually just now on their way to stores. Please, never fear, they will be in ALL stores starting next week sometime and once I know for SURE that they have arrived; I will let you know. In the meantime – the new book is currently sitting as a #1 best seller in all Italian books on Amazon and the reviews keep pouring in so head on over and place your order or pick up your copy from a Barnes & Noble or other major book seller in your area!
The one Costco that DID receive my book in a rushed and timely manner was the local Chico, CA Costco in which I will be there today, Friday July 26th for a book signing from 4-6pm so if you are in the area, come on down and see me and have dinner outside with food straight from the book served up by the amazing The Hunter & The Farmer!

Finally, don’t forget to order one of the amazing meat packs from Massa Natural Meats!

Simply use the code: EDPItaly at checkout to receive your 10% discount!
Ok, enough about me already! I’m (thankfully) not alone out here and there are other goodies you most definitely must get your hands on.
For example, whatever George over at Civilized Caveman touches seems to turn to gold (or at least delicious food) and he has just released a new app for the iPad and iPhone – but never fear Android users – from what I understand that version will be launching soon. In the meantime for all you Apple fans out there – go check out this pretty darn, no I’m sorry, ridiculously great app! I’m using it myself and loving it!!
Now on to more books!! Have you seen the plethora of great paleo books that are soon to be hitting the shelves? I’m excited about all of them and selfishly can’t wait for the newest creation by the amazing Tammy Credicott titled Make Ahead Paleo! I was so honored when Tammy asked me to write the forward for the book, which means I’ve had the pleasure of seeing it before anyone else, and let me tell you, if I need this book than you need this book and I wholeheartedly NEED THIS BOOK!!!
Another great book about to hit the paleo world by storm is Against All Grain by Danielle Walker! I will be reviewing this book soon on the blog but beautiful and delicious does not even begin to describe Danielle’s creation. Danielle also has a very compelling story, and Jason and I will be having her as a guest on our podcast really soon.
Last book I’ll mention today is Fermented by Jill Ciciarelli!!! This is one area, besides my adventures in making Kombucha, that I am totally lacking. I buy Bubbies sauerkraut and pickles and I drink my homemade Kombucha but my fermented adventures end there and I love fermented foods, especially understanding their amazing health benefits. This new book Fermented is a fermentation bible and I’m just starting to dive into my advanced copy but let me tell you; it’s a must must have for anyone wanting to up their health and smell up, I mean, mess up, I mean shoot I’m having trouble today; “ferment” up just about everything possible in their kitchen!!!
Alright, what else, what else… Oh, duh!! Ancestral Health Symposium is right around the corner, August 14th-17th to be exact. I’ll be there with my husband John and with Jason Seib so look for us lurking around all the awesome science filled greatness that will be there. None of us are speaking but I’ll be around to sign books, say hello, and cause a ruckus (or not) so please come find us!
Ok folks, I know there is more to chat about but guess what – the kids are up, the chickens are hungry, the dogs are howling, the shower is calling, and I need to go take care of the stuff that happens to be my crazy life. See all you soon and as always, enjoy!
We sign off with the boys, bright and early, pretending to be angelic…. and they are… (or they were at some point anyway, like as infants, when sleeping).
