    Diane Sanfilipino's book's title is Practical Paleo, or at least that's the one I am reading right now. I find it depressing though... in my view it is too black and white, and if I did not hang around this fora and have heard alternatives opinions, it would have made me to never want to try Paleo. De Vance's book was what did it for me, with his laid back, not uptight attitude and no crazy restrictions.

    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

I got a really nice white-ish smooth product with no icky bits.
    Perfect. I have a small one that I use for various things. I have plans to make my first bone broth soon. Also, sorry, I just noticed I botched your name.

    Good review - it helps because I'm not a black and white person either. I like the t-shirt that says I'm 80% paleo 20% of the time. :-) I am actually pretty compliant, but I have my occasional indulgences, and it's tough starting out. So, I will nix the Sanfilipino book - don't want to discourage her!

    I actually think it's one of the best books out there on Paleo, but then again, I'm a sucker for cookbooks with pictures and science all in one.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.
