Weekend Link LoveBefore the usual links, some Primal Blueprint Publishing news. First, check this out. The Primal Connection just won the Eric Hoffer award for best self-published book in 2013!

Second, the recipe for Paleo Pizza from Primal Cravings just got first place in the PaleoNonPaleo Great Paleo Pizza Smackdown.
