Paleo Community Survey Results Have Been Posted and other stuff…

Remember that Paleo Community Survey that I posted a few weeks ago?  Well, the results are in!  Click here to view them!  Thanks again to all that participated.

I also wanted to remind folks to sign up for the next Paleo Talk Seminar coming soon to a town near you!  Our first one will be April 17th here in Chico, CA followed by a seminar on May 7th in Hendersonville, TN.  Click here to register!

Next, I have received a few requests to post a blog specifically about what I eat on a daily basis.  What I’m thinking about doing is recording what I eat and my family eat everyday for one week along with my exercise and doing one blog post.  Would this be helpful for folks?

I also wanted to give a huge thank you to all who have pre-ordered Everyday Paleo!  I am excited to announce that I will have my first book signing right here in Chico, CA at Barnes & Noble of April 29th from 6-8pm.  Robb Wolf will be joining me to do a signing as well of his New York Times Best Seller, The Paleo Solution and we both will be giving a brief talk before the signing.  I look forward to seeing some of you there!  I’ll remind folks again about this event as the date approaches.

Finally, for those of you who listened to our last podcast you heard that I will be taking Friday through Monday off but expect another post to pop up on Saturday or Sunday while I am away.  Please keep posting comments and submitting questions for our podcast and I’ll catch up with you all when I return!

As always, enjoy!!

    I love the idea of a food and exercise journal for one week. I think that would be super informative and motivating to see what a week living Paleo really looks like.

  2. Jayne says:

    Yes please! Diet and exercise log would be super helpful!

  3. Nicole Szabo says:

    I think a week of meals and exercise would give people a true picture of your lifestyle. This would be extremely helpful for all of us…..I am a working mom with two young children and its nice to see that a Paleo lifestyle is possible. Thank you for your inspiration!

  4. reshma says:

    A week log would be great Sarah! I keep a log myself, so it would be nice to compare it to yours and see where I can improve. Can’t wait for your book to arrive. 🙂

  5. Sounds great!!!

  6. Johanna says:

    A week log would be very informative. Thanks cornputting the work into that!

  7. Ginger says:

    Yes, this would be helpful for those Primal women who are stalling out on their weight loss that I am trying to convince to go dairy-free and others are going super low carb that aren’t getting results and I’m trying to get them to eat more vegetables. They don’t listen to me, but hopefully they will listen to YOU. 🙂

  8. Yes! This paleo mama is ready to work out!!! But when to find the time???? 3 kids, full time job, part-time single parent (hubby’s a firefighter)….. He does help me with my crossfit training, but it’d be great to get more ideas there too and the meal planning would definitely be helpful. (Again, the time issue.)

    Thank you for all you do for us paleo wannabes!!!! =)

    PS – Any chance you’ll get out to Hawaii? Hubby saw Robb when he was here and really enjoyed it!

  9. Stephanie H. says:

    I agree. I love to see weekly food and exercise logs. It helps keep me motivated and inspired! And it gives my daughter a chance to contribute her ideas to our upcoming menus.

  10. Lori R. says:

    Yes! A log! Please?!?! 🙂

  11. Love the idea of a journal-it would be so helpful to see how you feed your family!!! Definitely need lunch ideas for kids!!! We, my whole family, are starting a paleo challenge through our gym tomorrow!!!!

  12. would love to see a log … and hey, I’ve pre-ordered your book – are you going to come to Washington to sign it (oh yeah, it rains ALOT but we’ve got some great Crossfit gyms and beautiful places to see!), please?? Have you thought per chance of autographing book plates, so those who are not near Chico could get a bookplate with your autograph for their book??

  13. Holly says:

    I would love to see a weekly sample of your workouts/food. My husband and I are fellow crossfitters and love your website, I know I have some tweaks required to my diet since I have plateaued and can’t get rid of my muffin top that is starting to appear! I’m definately needing to shake something up besides what’s growing around my belly 🙂

    1. Hi Holly!

      I hear through Robb Wolf, and the book Lights Out, that getting a good amount of sleep consistently will do the trick since you’re eating healthily already and watch your carb intake. =)

  14. James says:

    I’d be really interested in seeing what you eat, too.

    Argh! I just mapped it, and driving up to Chico from Fresno would be a LONG friday night drive after work, but def. a fun adventure.

    1. Sarah says:

      I might be also having a book signing on the 30th at a local store in Chico, I’ll keep you all posted!

  15. Marcy says:

    I add my vote for a weekly food log. I’ve been curious what your stand-by’s are. The stuff that is too regular to warrant a blog post. A technique we have is making a couple big pots of stew to eat throughout the week and one of our go-to meals is nachos without the nachos. I’d love to learn what techniques you use and if you have any go-to meals for busy nights.

  16. Erin says:

    Weekly food and exercise log would be awesome!!

  17. Caitlin says:


  18. Jeannine says:

    Yes, helpful! I challenge the rest of us to do the same 🙂

    Actually was tossing the idea around myself to share with those folks in my life who ask the goofy (goofy to me anyway) question of “So what DO you eat?!” after I’ve essentially already told them the basics. Wouldn’t hurt to share my workouts either, to help others know food & fitness are both important to being healthy.

  19. Tracey says:

    Would love to see a diet/exercise log. Any chance you’d also be willing to share a weeklong grocery list and grocery bill. I have similar aged children to you and feel like I’m always in a debate at the store- organic or cheaper non-organic, grass-fed or cheaper regular, etc.

  20. Aaron Johnson says:

    Hi there Sarah,

    First and foremost I would like to think you for the fabulous site. I know you are putting out your new book, and was wondering if you were going to make it available in a digital format? I just bought a new ipad and use it a lot in the kitchen for recipes and such, and would love to add your book onto it.

    Thanks again for all the great stuff.


    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Aaron! I do not think it will be in a digital format because of how the book is formatted. Big pages, big pictures, and the detailed fitness section and the way it’s laid out might not work in digital format!

    I love, love, love your website and your inspiration. I can’t wait to get your cookbook! The answer to my question may be in the cookbook, but I am too impatient! Can I ask what type of pots and pans you use? Brands and varieties? I ask because I am woefully uneducated and would love to have an example of the types of pans. ie, I never know what type of pan to sear in vs saute vs steam. I do know that I can’t use cast iron (which is the only thing I ever used to use) because I moved into an apt with a glass top radiant heating top and the stove instructions say cast iron (non-enameled) will scratch it. So without my handy pan, I have no idea what to use for what scenarios!

    Your friend,

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Angela! I use tri ply stainless steel Calphalon pans. I have the 8 in and 10 in omelette pan which are the ones that do not have the high sides, more of a “skillet” and then I have the 6 inch saute pan, the one with the higher sides. I use the omelette pans for everything both to sear and saute and I love my saute pan, the one with the higher sides for sauces, braising, etc. I also have a cast iron wok that I do curries and stir frys in but I bet you can find a stainless steel wok that would work! I just recommend getting a brand that is stainless steel vs. non-stick for health reasons. I hope that helps! : )

      1. angela says:

        Thank you so much! That answer was fantastic. In fact, I broke down and bought a set of pans. Tri ply stainless steel All-Clads. And got a great deal on them. Came with an 8, 10, and 12 inch skillet and a 10 inch pan with the high sides like you described plus oodles of other pans. I got a cast iron enameled dutch oven which was wonderful for making beef stew and spaghetti squash meat sauce. And finally I got a pressure cooker (Fagor) which was America’s test kitchen’s recommendation, and I saw it on your amazon store list. There has been a small learning curve with how to use actual cookwear (as opposed to the uneven heating issues i had with my wal-mart variety), but I LOVE them. Thank you for your recommendation! At least I now know I can sear and transfer to the oven or broiler without damaging the pan. and someone recommended using my old favorite cast iron skillet on the grill, so I may not have to give up on her yet!

        Thank you!

    I’ve got a question-I understand that you (Sarah) are a cross-fit trainer. Several other Paleo websites also emphasize cross-fit training. Well-I’m all for exercise and know I need to do more of it. But I’m hardly an athlete and have no desire to be. I’m wondering if there are Paleo foods that are ok for athletes, but not so much for the rest of us. Should I be avoiding any of the foods or recipes that you post? I love your website and your recipes are delicious. But if I’m not working out like crazy, are there things I should be leaving out??

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Dawn,
      I am a certified Crossfit trainer but my meals are not geared towards the extreme athlete. Also, one does not have to be an “athlete” to train at a crossfit facility. Of course every place is different but where I train, Norcal Strength and Conditioning, we have programs for beginners who have never worked out before, low intensity classes, strength classes only, and really we cater to everyone, no matter what your fitness level might be. With that being said, my meals are not geared towards anyone in particular, they are just family paleo friendly. If someone is an extreme athlete I would recommend that they eat more sweet potatoes post workout, and pump up the fat, but eating my meals as is should be universally fine for everyone. Just use common sense and if you are for example trying to make body composition changes, i.e., lean out, don’t rely on my nutty cookies or apple muffins for your everyday fuel source. : ) Hope that helps!

      1. Dawn says:

        thanks so much! darn-what a bummer that I can’t live on those apple muffins. they’re pretty stinkin good 🙂 I’ll cut down on the sweet potatoes and pump up the green stuff. thanks!
