Practical Paleo Giveaway and 21-Day Paleo Challenge

by Beaming with Health on February 22, 2013

IMG_2255Have you heard of the Paleo approach to health? If not, here is a quick explanation by Robb Wolf. If you are new to this approach, are you curious to learn more?

As a health coach I have tried many different diets and approaches to health. As of now I eat about 60-70% Paleo. For the most part I avoid gluten and most dairy, however I do still enjoy some whole grains and legumes. I personally like to experiment with my health regime from time to time to see if there might be an approach that makes me feel even better than I currently do. I have yet to try the Paleo approach, so I thought I would check it out by giving it my complete attention. Thus, starting March 11, I will be going Paleo for 21-days. I urge you to join me! I will be posting some of the yummy meals I am preparing as well as links to info on the Paleo diet, recipes, and more on my Beaming with Health Facebook page.

Get started early with some of these Paleo recipes on my site or from others on the Paleo 21-Day Challenge Board on Pinterest.

Giveaway:

Now here comes the good part! In honor of this challenge, I would like to give you the opportunity to win a copy of Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites. Check out this post I did a while back which includes a short review as well as a video where I prepare 2 of Diane’s fabulous recipes.

How can you be entered to win you ask? Complete one of the items below and you will be entered to win. Please let me know you have done so in the comment section below this post and leave a note as to why you are interested in the Paleo approach. If you decide to join me in the 21-day Paleo Challenge, let me know in the comment section as well. That will get you an extra entry!

1. Visit Beaming with Health or Beaming with Health Business Coaching (if you are an entrepreneur in the health industry) on Facebook and “like” the page.

2. Follow me on Twitter @BeamingwHealth.

3. Visit my home page and sign up to receive my newsletter.

The winner will be announced on February 28!

If you are interested in learning more about the Paleo approach, a good place to start is with Diane Sanfilippo’s 21-Day Sugar Detox. Available in ebook form (and soon to be hard copy book). You can pick up a copy here.

Stay tuned for more posts regarding my 21-Day Paleo Challenge! Good luck, I hope you win!

Thank you do much for hosting this contest, I just liked your FB page and signed up for the newsletter. I don’t have any Paleo books yet but we have Nourishing Taditions, the GAPS cookbook, and Wild Fermentation. Our family is slowing trying to go more paleo to help heal my eldest daughter of her allergies and Eczema and my daughter just started a 31 day challenge on Friday so I would be happy todo the 21 day challenge as well. I love your page and am looking forward to following you now.

I have followed all three – lovely that I’ve found you due to this competition you are running. I developed an interest in health when I was diagnosed with systemic lupus when 11years old. I was told I wouldn’t finished my education and never hold down a job. Luckily I am quite stubborn (haha) and now 18 years later and with a degree, I co-own a health clinic in the Uk. Nobody knows really what we should or shouldnt be doing but it makes sense to me to try and apply our diet to nature. Where poss I eat seasonally and try to eat locally where i can. Cleansing is a big part for me too. I have much respect for what you are doing, spreading the word about a proper healthy lifestyle! Fab! X

Hey, I liked both fb pages and signed up for the newsletter. I tried to start a paleo diet in January and somewhat bombed out after eating out several times. So it might be nice to try a different approach. Perhaps 21 days will be more doable than 30 days. I rarely eat grains, but I like my kefir and greek yogurt. Hmm?

I have done everything required to enter to win a copy of Practical Paleo! :) The reason I want to win this book is because I have repeatedly tried doing Paleo, and all the resources I have previously used make the process so difficult and sometimes confusing. I love how PP really explain EVERY thing! Moreover, I want to get my husband on board, and the previous paleo methods I was using seemed to turn him off to paleo, and it’s so much easier doing paleo with him then all by myself. I truly want a way of eating that will be help me achieve my health and fitness goals, as well as a lifetime of good eating! I hate the way I eat, even my cleaner way of eating, I know I am missing something because there’s still something that refuses to click with everything else I am doing, and I think it’s my diet…I want a PERMANENT change in my diet, something I can live with, and something my whole family can do too.

I really hope I win!! Thank you for this opportunity! :)

I have signed up for the newsletter and plan to go back and check out the websites. I tried the 21dsd in February and failed. Would like to try again in March. I am not a cook, sorry to say and quickly became overwhelmed by trying to figure out what I could have, additionally I am training for a marathon and my workouts were horrible. I have always been a fitness enthusiast and am learning so much that I didn’t know. It all makes sense but it is so hard to make some of the changes. I hope you chose me!

Having only just started paleo/cleaning eating I am desperate for some guidance and practical tips that won’t have me a slave in the kitchen for hours on end, not that I don’t mind cooking, but simple quick delicious recipes are what I need…….and how to find that simple solution for something sweet, that is not overly heavy in calories….

I just found your blog through the Balanced Bites Facebook page – I can’t believe that I hadn’t found it before this! I’ve been on a journey to better health for several months now after discovering that wheat was the root of why I never felt right, had adult acne, and never had a “properly” working digestive system. Being wheat-free didn’t completely cut it though. I found paleo/primal in January and I have never felt better in my life! I’m still new at this, so I am excited to follow you along on your 21-day paleo journey. I did “like” your Facebook page and would love to win a copy of “Practical Paleo.” :-)
