Resources for Paleophiles New and Old:
If you haven't read these yet, stop what you're doing and get started:
- The Paleo Answer, by Loren Cordain Ph.D.
Organized like a "meta-analysis" of scientific articles and research studies, this book has great insight into the "Why" of Paleo and is written by the man who put this way of life on the modern map.
- The Environmental Working Group's Shopper's Guide
This list is updated annually and includes the popular "Clean 15" and "Dirty Dozen". The top 12 foods on the list (1-12) are the Dirty Dozen and contain the most pesticides of the produce tested both in amount and number of different pesticides present AFTER washing and peeling! The bottom 15 are the "cleanest". I rely heavily on this list to help me decide what to buy organic, like apples and all my greens, and what I can save money on - like conventionally grown onions and avocados. Check it out!
- Dirty Dozen - the app version of the EWG site above
- Seafood Watch - wealth of information from the Monterey Bay Aquarium about what to eat and whether to buy farmed or wild for optimal safety and sustainability
- Bulletproof - A cool little app to check your pulse as a way to measure food sensitivities
