I love glossy magazines stuffed with food porn and fitness tips, and for years, I made sure my mailbox was filled with a steady stream of periodicals like Saveur, Everyday Food, Gourmet and Women’s Health. Even today — more than a year after going Paleo — my multi-year subscriptions for Eating Well and Cooking Light have yet to expire. When they arrive, I still flip through them, but it pains me every time I see an article or an ad that I know is flat-out dumb or wrong.
Aaaaagh! A glossy full-page ad for whole grain pasta! An article about how lamb is the worst protein for the planet! Fudge Tracks ice cream is one of the “healthiest” foods available to mankind! Make your plates look like the USDA’s My Plate! Organic stevia is super-awesome! And so are agave-sweetened peanut butter popcorn balls!
I can’t believe I used to (literally) swallow this crap.
Thankfully, there’s an antidote: Paleo Magazine — the first print periodical focused on ancestral approaches to nutrition and health. The brainchild of Cain Credicott, Paleo Magazine launched just a few months ago and is already kicking butt. Each issue is packed with features written by some of our favorite people in the Paleosphere (Sarah Fragoso of Everyday Paleo! Clif Harski of MovNat! Bill Staley & Hayley Mason of The Food Lovers’ Primal Palate! Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites! Liz Wolfe of Cavegirl Eats!) and gorgeous photos by the talented Tammy Credicott and others. Whether you’re immersed in the Paleo lifestyle or just considering it, you need to get your grubby little hands on Paleo Magazine. Seriously: Subscribe already!
To help get you hooked on this bi-monthly crack, my giveaway package this week consists of:
Speaking of which, did I mention that we (and by “we,” I mean the husband) cranked out a couple of brand-new t-shirt designs over the weekend? They’re already available at my Spreadshirt shop (where you can find our other designs, too), so check ‘em out and let me know what you think!
And while you’re at it, buy yourselves a shirt or three! Remember: Until the end of the year, U.S. and Canadian residents can get free shipping on orders of $50 or more by entering the code SHIPFREEUS (for the U.S.) and CADSHIPFREE (for Canada).
In the alternative, try your luck at winning the prize package!
To enter, just post a comment below with: (1) a suggestion for a dish you’d like to see me Paleo-ize (but don’t pick one I’ve already done, s’il vous plait); and (2) the t-shirt design you’d like to win (you can view all the designs over here). One winner will be randomly chosen later this week.
The deadline to enter the sweepstakes is this Wednesday night (September 28, 2011) at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time, so YOU’D BETTER GET CRACKIN’, people!
