{Paleo 101 Books} Paleo Magazine - Modern Day Primal Living


Today is the first post in a series I'm writing this month on some of my favorite (naturally gluten free and dairy free) Paleo book resources. Today's post isn't about a book though, it's about an awesome magazine geared towards primal and paleo lifestyles, called Paleo Magazine. It's the ONLY paleo magazine currently available and it's a fantastic resource.

I was so impressed after viewing the Paleo Magazine website that I wrote the publisher and editor, Mr. Cain Credicott, and asked if he would be willing to send me a few samples of the magazine to review. He graciously agreed to send me copies!

I've been reading and re-reading these magazines since late December and I have to say they are excellent. Every time I re-read an issue I find something I missed before. Some of of my favorite features have been the beautiful, full-color pictures of recipes and paleo articles, informative editorials like a parenting section, a section in which a registered dietitian answers questions about the paleo diet, and even an "Average Joe Paleo" section which talks about how the everyday person can incorporate the paleo diet and exercise into their life. Some of my favorite columns in the "Average Joe Paleo" section share ideas for being able to follow a paleo diet as frugally as possible.

One of the my favorite articles in the magazine (so far) discussed the different types of grass-fed meat you can buy, basically what you would receive by purchasing a half or whole cow, and the best resources to use to find a local farm. The magazine is beautifully laid out, covers a wide variety of paleo and gluten free living topics, and I love the recipes shared by a few of my favorite paleo bloggers such as Sarah Fragoso and Bill Staley and Hayley Mason.

If you're interested in following a paleo or primal type of diet, I definitely recommend purchasing a subscription to Paleo Magazine. It's only about $30 a year for 6 super-packed, full-color issues. Also, now they even have digital back issues of the magazine for as little as $2.99 each. So whether you still enjoy print magazines (like I do), or you prefer a digital edition... Paleo Magazine can help you learn more about living a healthy and vibrant paleo life!

GLG Disclosure: Paleo Magazine provided me with with several print issues of their journal for the purpose of providing a review, if I chose to do so. This is not a sponsored post and I did not receive compensation. The opinions in this post are completely my own.

  2. I love this magazine. I've only had a subscription since last fall, but I've already gotten lots of valuable information and definitely lots of inspiration. I love the article by Melissa Hartwig of the Whole9 about not trying to be super-restrictive during the holiday season. Of course, the recipes are fun and the pictures are beautiful. Thanks for reviewing one of my faves.

    1. I can't agree more Aseafish! I just bought the holiday one and I can't wait to read all the articles in it. I think it's a great food magazine period, whether you are technically "Paleo" or not, because it covers such a wide range of whole foods ideas!

  3. Just thought of another fun fact I like about Paleo Magazine: in each issue they share a roundup of abstracts of clinical trials and research being done about paleo and gluten free nutrition. If you're a science geek (like me) it's fun stuff to read!

  4. I guess I'm just disappointed with all the glossyness of the magazine. I would have hoped for a more 'environmentally sound' magazine printed on recycled paper. I found it really off putting. I'll give it another look but I was so disappointed...

    1. Karen -- My guess is that they thought they could market a magazine with full-color articles and pictures better than they could one with just recycled paper, although I agree that would be a better choice environmentaly. However, if you don't mind reading online the best environmental choice would be the digital issues which you can now purchase online! :-) And then you could always print them at home on recycled paper if you'd like! :-)
