Fed & Fit

Paleo Book Bundle Giveaway

This is the giveaway of all giveaways!

My friends over at Victory Belt Publishing {aka, “the Paleo publisher”}, have graciously provided a 5 book bundle valued at over $115.00 for one lucky Fed & Fit winner!!

I am such a book nerd. I love, love, LOVE to read! I always have three books on my nightstand, a dozen scattered across my desk, two in my computer bag, and one in my purse. Sure I could rely on an iPad and save myself some shoulder pain, desk space, and the predictable scolding from my massage therapist {“stop carrying such a heavy bag!”}, but I love a real book. I love the weight of them. I love highlighting, dog-earing, and writing my own notes in the margins. I read nutrition and cookbooks like they're gripping thriller novels. I eat them up! #punintended

While I do my best to rotate one fun fiction novel in for every 3 scientific, this tiny glimpse of one bookshelf tells the real truth about where my loyalties lie:

VB Giveaway | Fed and Fit-1

Also, if you can't tell, over half of the books are Victory Belt masterpieces. Masterpieces, I say!

So what's included in this all-star giveaway?

#1. The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf {Blog: Robb Wolf}

paleo solution_cover

This is where it all started. If you're new to Paleo or really want to get to the root and origin of this life-changing real food-focused health movement, this book explains it all. Robb Wolf is an incredibly entertaining author and his introduction of the Paleo lifestyle is beyond enrolling. The proof of the power of this book is in how large the Paleo world has become. Hat tip to Mr. Wolf.

#2. Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo {Blog: Balanced Bites}

PP_NYTcover

This is the thorough and best-selling debut publication by the lovely Diane who also authored The 21-Day Sugar Detox! If you're looking for handy meal plans, entertaining food science education, and delicious recipes to kickstart your Paleo lifestyle, then this is the book for you. It's also a fantastic reference book to keep on hand.

#3. Beyond Bacon by Stacy Toth and Matt McCarry {Blog: The Paleo Parents}

beyond bacon_cover

I have a deep, meaningful love of this book. It's a book dedicated to the WHOLE hog and is the star of my coffee table. The brilliant foodie minds of Stacy and Matt gave us a handbook to turn an entire hog into mind-blowing, delicious, gorgeous Paleo-friendly dishes. I often find myself day dreaming about their lard brownies. #bestbrownieofmylife

#4. Fermented by Jill Ciciarelli {Blog: First Comes Health}

fermented_cover

Fermenting seasonal food is an ancient, health-promoting practice that's a truly important addition to all Paleo, primal, and W.A.P. lifestyles. Jill walks you through a really interesting background on food fermentation and then shares steps for how you can ferment {pretty much anything} from home! Later this year, I'll share my own recipe for homemade spicy sauerkraut!

#5. Becoming a Supple Leopard by Dr. Kelly Starrett {of Mobility WOD} and Glen Cordoza

supple leopard_cover

Is this not the most brilliant book title you've ever seen? Dr. Starrett, the genius behind MobilityWOD.com, wrote this training manual to help any athlete at any level pin-point, recover, and prevent common injuries. It's a fantastic reference book to have on hand for active families, gym owners, coaches, and the person looking to get the most out of their athletic performance and overall health.

Aren't those exciting reads?? Even if you're not the winner of this giveaway, the book titles above will link you to where you can order each book.

You should ALSO know that there's more book worm goodness in our Fed & Fit future …

  1. More book reviews! We're going to work book, by book through my library like we did with The 21-Day Sugar Detox, Gather, and the Paleo Happy Hour.
  2. Find my full library with links to order the books here.
  3. You can also start to look forward to my book of the week! It will be featured in my weekly “The Real Food Truth” newsletter that's exclusive to you special subscribers. The first one goes out next Monday and I'm SO EXCITED!

    I love It Starts With Food… I began a paleo lifestyle with this book my sophomore year of college. It has now been over a year, and I owe it all to this book for showing me the guidelines and making me want to keep on researching to find out how foods and exercise all affect my body. It gave recipe tips, research, and the motivation for me to complete a strict Whole30 while living in a dorm room.

    I love reading new books, but I only really can when they show up at the local library because wellll, I’m in college. I think that says enough about my income. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    My favorite Paleo book so far is “Make it Paleo” by Hayley and Bill. It’s their first cookbook, and it’s super simple. But I think that’s why I like it – it’s how to roast chicken thighs or cook carrots. Simple, simple stuff. But there are so many cookbooks out that I’d like to purchase!
