Websites I peruse (read: stalk) frequently:

  • Health-Bent - "Paleo recipes that don't look or taste like dog food" Fact. This couple (Megan & Brandon) are awesome. They're both CrossFit level 1 certified and they must be brilliant with website design because their layout is flawless. I love their paleo philosophy (they use vinegar and some dairy), their food is incredible, and it definitely doesn't look like dog food. They clearly use a camera to take their pictures instead of an iPhone - and I don't even have the good camera iPhone.
  • Archevore - "An Archevore is someone who eats based on essential principles, and also someone who hungers for essential principles. Take your pick." I'm going to be completely honest with you. I'm not sure what Kurt Harris, M.D., means by take your pick. I think that if you're eating based on essential, scientific principles, you're likely hungering for them as well. Maybe it's the science nerd in me but I don't see how one can exist without the other. Anyway, this guy Kurt is a doctor. No, not in nutrition. He's a radiologist. But he also has a great paleo philosophy. In fact, it's what he calls Paleo 2.0. This guy does his homework. And he shares his findings with those of us too busy to be bothered with papers upon papers and books and novels. That's his Venn Diagram above. Paleo foods = good. Neolithic foods = mostly bad and agents of disease, but some paleo foods are too. The Neolithic foods not agents of disease = fair game. I like his style. I'm pretty sure dark chocolate is in that light purple goodness. And butter. No Paula Deen, not the regular stuff. Ghee. Clarified butter. Find it at your local health food store.
  • ChowStalker - How convenient, it already has stalker in the title, so it's implied that I peruse these pages all the time. "We don't do cupcakes" Gah. What? Ok before you turn around and shun your eyes away from the screen just wait. What they put on their page is BETTER than cupcakes. It's food porn. Paleo style. And you know, I think that tagline is a lie. Because I've definitely made meatloaf cupcakes with sweet potato frosting and THAT, my friends, is indeed a cupcake. Albeit a meaty one. 
  • The Clothes Make the Girl - Author of the Whole9 approved cookbook, Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat. Retired roller girl. Former chubby nerd. CrossFitter. 'Nuff Said. Brilliant website design, way talented in the kitchen, go check this site out.  
  • PaleOMG - "I'm a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don't know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my single life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated." I feel like I talk about her way more than is necessary on the regular pages of my blog, but just to reiterate: Juli Bauer is my girl crush. She makes ballin' food, curses a lot, is way funnier than me, and waaaaay stronger than me. She's a CrossFit coach and has this to say on women in CrossFit, which I absolutely adore:
    • But then CrossFit popped into my life. I instantly looked up to women for snatching 95lbs and doing muscle ups so effortlessly. I didn’t care about what they were wearing. I didn’t give a sh*t about the lack of makeup they wore. And I sure as hell didn’t give a f*ck about their inner thighs touching. (From Again Faster - Embrace Them Thighs)
