About Stacy

Stacy Headshot 1

Stacy Toth blogs with her husband (Matthew McCarry).  They co-host and produce the top rated syndicated podcast, The Paleo View as well as authored bestselling cookbooks, Eat Like a Dinosaur, a recipe & guidebook for gluten-free kids, Beyond Bacon, Paleo Recipes that Respect the Whole Hog, and Real Life Paleo,Recipes, Meals, and Practical Tips That Follow an Easy Three-Phased Approach to Health as well as two eBooks: 3 Phase Paleo and Paleo to Go! They and their award-winning recipes have been featured in several national publications, television, radio shows, podcasts and many sites online.

In addition to writing on topics related to paleo parenting, Stacy & Matt are well-known for their candor and openness in addressing topics related to having changed their whole family’s health with a paleo lifestyle. This includes living without a gallbladder, depression, the auto-immune protocol, still being the fattest people in paleo after losing 200lbs, becoming a strong athlete after a lifetime of obesity, body love and fat acceptance, safer skincare and better beauty, and everything in between.


Matt & Stacy try to keep it together with duct tape and lots of love. After over a decade of marriage, 3 kids, 3 cats, a bearded dragon, a blog, multiple books, podcasts, and Stacy’s full-time job, sometimes it has to just be about spending quality time together. It just so happens that’s often in the kitchen! That said, the journey to achieve and maintain health is not linear.

There are many factors that contribute to health and they change regularly for me. Before I suffered a back injury from a freak concrete-bag-lifting gardening accident, I was a competitive strong woman. While recovering, I found and fell in love with the importance of better beauty products. I sometimes blog about just being me – fitness, fashion, food, family… it’s all part of who I am.

I’m grateful to have found things I am passionate about, that my family encourages and that makes me feel really great. I cannot encourage you all enough to do the same, because there is infinite joy in finding what you love and making time for yourself to enjoy it. Bonus points if it contributes to a healthy lifestyle!
