Things I Like: PaleOMG Book Review + Giveaway


Juli cooks the way I want to eat. I’m sure you’re familiar with her blog; if you’re not. You can get a sense of the way she cooks and her general aura of awesomeness. It’s creative. It’s flavorful. And most importantly, it’s fun. We started Health-Bent because I hate salad–I don’t hate it, but it doesn’t really inspire me. So for me, to keep the idea of Paleo as a “lifestyle way of eating”, and not a “every once in a while style of eating”, I need creative, flavorful and fun food in my mouth. What Juli’s written is a shining example of what I’m talking about. I’m so happy for her and I’m so happy that she’s put something out there that I think will inspire people to “stay the course”.

Buy on Amazon.

  1. I love your recipes!! I’ve yet to try one that hasn’t been a hit and it’s great that none of them require a 1/2 teaspoon of an ingredient that you won’t use for anything else! The funny commentary is always appreciated too. Keep up the great work!

  2. I recently found your blog and have been enjoying trying recipes!

  3. Jennifer

  7. Oh how I love Juli! She’s like my guilty pleasure sneak-peek-into-what-its-like-being-unattached. And her recipes are so amazing but so dang simple, that even sort-of cooks like me feel like they could make it through them without a fire. Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. I would love to win this book… and I love your website also! Have a great day!

  46. Heather A

    Good Morning! I love the recipes that this site provides. I have experienced with eating Paleo for a few months but have yet to make it a complete part of my lifestyle. I just found out that I have a gluten intolerance so along with wanting to eat Paleo for a healthier lifestyle and diet, I now have to eat gluten free. I am having such a hard time trying to come up with things to make that both myself and my husband will eat. We, like most others, love condiments and sandwhiches and pizza and cheese! I do not know how we are going to tackle this but I know if I want to feel better….I must! I need help!!! I need advice, ideas, and recipes! The Paleo OMG cookbook would help greatly!!! Things I like: Paleo Orange Chicken, CrossFit, and the Health-Bent Umbrella! Definitely helps so….thank you!

  47. I follow on FB and Twitter.
    BTW, Your Paleo Broccoli Salad is probably my #1 go-to side dish! Love it.

  48. Maryah Craft

  53. i went paleo for my birthday gift to myself last year. now, almost a year later, i feel 10 years younger, have lost weight without really trying, have greatly reduced digestive problems, migraines, and common colds. i am thrilled to have come into the paleo way of life during such an explosion of paleo-related books and blogs and can’t wait to try your new cookbook (which i am hoping to get as a mother’s day gift) as well as this awesome cookbook from paleoOMG.

  54. Just picked up your “Primal Cravings” from Mark Sisson’s site. I’d love to add the PaleOMG to my collection. You guys ROCK!
