So of late we’ve been getting a lot of “Getting Started” type questions. As much as we’d love to answer everyone, we’ve focused on spending more time on our own family and just can’t! While we do have a lot of information in our “Start Here” drop-down menu at the top of our site or the Paleo 101 page, there was never a one-stop place here that had EVERYTHING. Now, however, we do!
If you don’t have our book, or want even more detail on the “boring chapter for grown ups” stuff in Eat Like a Dinosaur, you’ll love our new 20 page guide!
This guide was compiled after many hours of work and would have been a part of a seminar series we no longer intend to do, because we’re scaling down and focusing more on our own family. So you get it for free! However, if you appreciate the work that went into this and would like to donate to us, please click on the below PayPal link and donate what you’re able and willing. You can also support us by shopping at any of the sources on the sidebar and we’ll receive a small percentage of the sale (including anything on Amazon!).
