Smarter People

These are the sites I’ve vetted, fallen in love with and truly believe in. These are the sites that could change your life!

Primal recipe links, exercise advice and mental stimulation abound in the following sites. Yup, these blogs are by smarter people, for smarter people.

Life in the Primal Lane

The Smiths – The Crossfit Chronicles. Proof that you can raise a fit family.  An education in thoughtfulness and determination – this family works “day jobs,” on top of being full-time innovators and CrossFitters. Be sure to check out “4Better,” Page 2 of The Chronicles.

Life As A Plate: Honest talk about how life actually is and how good food actually fits in. A mix of Primal, Paleo, and Weston A. Price food values – which means nutrient-dense, properly-prepared REAL FOOD.

Everyday Paleo: More proof that you can raise a family on a deliciously Primal/Paleo diet…and still have time to be fit and adorable.

Paleo Parents: My favorite rambunctious (3 boys!) Paleo Family.

Ancestralize Me: A future RD’s thoughts & research on nutrition & nutrient-dense diets.

Peggy the Primal Parent: Overcoming everything from PCOS to traumatic brain injury; now a parent raising a Primal Little.

Primal/Paleo/WAP Nutrition (and Common Sense):

Robb Wolf, Author – The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet. For your scientifically valid “Aha” moment (Dr. Oz, you’re in dire need of this).

Mark’s Daily Apple: An all-points approach to living the Hunter-Gatherer lifestyle. Killer recipes.

Archevore: Kurt G. Harris is an MD who will address the science-y stuff. The forums are fantastic.

Cholesterol and Health: A site devoted to dispelling myths and detailing truths about Cholesterol.

The Weston A. Price Foundation: The Weston A. Price Foundation is home to the discoveries of a world-travelling dentist who dedicated his life to researching indigenous peoples in the last century, detailing the diets that kept them in nearly perfect health. They’re also a great source for Truths about soy, saturated fat, and cholesterol. Not everything is perfectly “Paleo” or “Primal,” but an extensive body of research and a strong sense of Nourishing Diet activism makes their work a perfect complement to the work of those in the Paleo/Primal community.

  1. Hi! I just wanted to thank you for your amazing site. I am in love with eating well and feeling so happy, healthy and CALM. Can you imagine if everyone were like this?? Also, I tried clicking on your link to The Smiths and it doesn’t seem to be working, just thought I’d let you know! THANK YOU for all you do!

    • Hello, Lucia! Thanks for reading, and for your kind words! I couldn’t agree more with your sentiment. If everyone took care of themselves better, the world would be a better place. I’ve even read psych-world hypotheses regarding wheat and EFA deficiency as a major cause of mental conditions leading to violent behavior, and gut permeability has been connected to schizophrenia!

      I will make sure these links are updated – THANK YOU for letting me know!

  2. A lovely list of sites, Liz. Now if yours were on there it would be perfect! hehehe. Seriously, I’m totally honored to be on your list of smarter people. 🙂
