Every week, I send a newsletter with recommendations for Five Paleo Dinners to cook the next week, tasty information that doesn’t make it into its own blog post, and goodies that are only available to subscribers, like exclusive recipes and special discounts. Plus, if I’m being honest, sometimes I share stories about my cat Smudge. (Fun fact! Our publishing company is called Smudge Publishing, LLC. Smudge is the CEO, and napping is written into the bylaws.)

My Amazon Store
I’m a big fan of Amazon because they sell so many things I love. My store is a curated collection of “Good Stuff You Can Buy From Amazon,” including essential kitchen tools that I use every day, the paleo books I read, “take me away” fiction, and other things that catch my fancy.
These are my trusted suppliers for the spicy substances that turn ingredients into meals. They’re owned by real people, not giant corporations, and their spices are fresh, vibrant, and reasonably priced.
Some of my favorite spices and blends
Primal Palate Organic Spices
First-rate, organic spices and blends from paleo chefs Bill and Hayley of Primal Palate
Unique blends, salts, and whole spices
All of these sites offer delicious, nutrient-packed meat, a wide variety of other healthy products, and reasonable prices (with deals for ordering in larger quantities). They are all staffed by real people, who seem to genuinely care about their products and the people who eat them.
