Cortisol is probably the most notable adrenal hormone that is produced in response to stress.

Paleo Plan Member Loses 100 Pounds, Reverses Autoimmunity & Stuns Doctor

Results are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person. If you're new to the idea of Paleo, it can be easy to feel skeptical about all of the success stories floating around on the internet. Even my own success story can be dubious for some since I am now a Paleo nutritionist. "Oh, it must be easier for her, she's a nutritionist." I've heard every argument in the book! However, I didn't become a nutritionist until after I had … View Recipe

On-the-Go with Paleo Meals To Go!

Camp on Paleo! One of the (many) reasons why I love my job as a Paleo Plan Nutritionist involves sampling and reviewing the rapidly evolving array of Paleo foods that are becoming available on the market. Now I know what you’re thinking...pre-made foods aren’t Paleo! While it may be true that our ancestors didn't have pre-packaged foods, it’s also true that most of us are no longer living in caves or gathering our food from the wild. The reality is that … View Recipe


How A Paleo Nutritionist Handles Pregnancy Cravings

As of today, I'm 27 weeks pregnant, and well over halfway through my pregnancy now. While the time seems to fly on one level, it's also standing still in other ways, especially since I'm still dealing with all day "morning sickness" and other fun things like migraines and sciatica. Pregnancy is amazing, but it's also not the glamorous walk in the park that many would have you believe. (Don't worry, this blog won't go into that!) One very real thing about … View Recipe

4 Reasons Why Paleo Doesn’t Have To Be “All or Nothing”

Whether you’re new to Paleo, or you were Paleoized long before it was a hip, Hollywood trend, chances are you’ve encountered a “Paleo purist.” Maybe you are one, or were one for awhile.
