This is one of my all time favorite cookbooks… it integrates sustainability, simplicity, elegance, and down-home cooking all in one place. Awesome.

The Ancestral Table: Traditional Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle

Russ is not only a “nerd-tastic heartthrob” as I say in this post, but this book is also specifically designed to be Perfect Health Diet-esque and therefore include plentiful carbohydrates. Boom.

The Male Brain: A Breakthrough Understanding of How Men and Boys Think

By Louann Brizendine MD

Supplements

Perfect Desiccated Liver from Grassfed Cattle

Liver is THE paleo superfood.. full of B vitamins, iron, manganese, vitamin A, D, and K2. K2 is super hard to get in the diet… as is A… but liver’s got it!

Real grass-fed liver of course is best… if you can’t do it, this grass fed capsule is an excellent second place.

Natural Calm Magnesium Powder, Raspberry Lemon, 16 oz

Magneisum is very hard to get in a paleo diet (really only in grains) and is CRUCIAL for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. You need it to prevent headaches, relax your muscles, calm anxiety, prevent depression, and fall asleep at night, among so many other things. At one point it nearly saved my life.

Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil Butter Oil Blend – 120 capsules

The supplement to beat all supplements that EVERY paleo author recommends.. this is the ONLY form of fish oil I believe is healthy to take… and is rich in vitamins A and D. Great for more conditions than I can count… including PCOS, obesity, Alzheimer’s, all autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, osteoporosis, heart disease, and more.

Cardiovascular Research Mg Taurate, 180 Capsules

Of all the forms of magnesium, this one is my favorite. It has the most potent effect on calming down my heart. I like to break the capsule open in my mouth – it has a very fast and good effect.

Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium Glycinate, 240 Tablets

This is the form of magnesium that is easiest on th gut. Other forms in high doses can cause intestinal motility to speed up enough to cause diarrhea. This one is the best for avoiding that if you have a sensitive stomach.

PRO-15: #1 Recommended Best Probiotic Supplement: 15 Strains

Priobitics are one of the best ways to help heal your gut… and gut healing is the best way to heal your body (and mind!). Taking a diverse probiotic with lots of cultures in it like this one helps your body build a robust flora population.

Nutrigold Vitamin D3 in Organic Olive Oil, GMO, Soy, Preservative Free

Taking D3 keeps me cold-free all year long (literally, I got terrible colds until I started taking it), and keeps me from being depressed and anxious in winter months. If you don’t take cod liver oil, and even if you do but need more D, this is the supplement to take. Vitamin D is associated with overall improved health, and can help with diseases as advanced as cancer.

Nature’s Life Icelandic Kelp for Thyroid Health

Iodine from seaweed and selenium from things like brazil nuts are two crucial hormones for thyroid health. If you use sea salt instead of iodized salt, it might be necessary for you to supplement with iodine

N-Acetyl-Cysteine by Jarrow’s Formulas, 200 count

NAC is one of the most potent antioxidants, and amazing for liver detoxes. It’s also known to be one of the two best supplements for curing acne.

This is another great probiotic supplement, designed for the primal dieter.

Milk Thistle (Silymarin) by Jarrow Formula’s 200 Capsules

One of the best liver detox supplements… it’s GREAT for treating estrogen dominance, especially when paired with NAC.

Black Radish is a rare but powerful detox herb. Take it on its own here instead of having a small amount squeezed into a generic liver supplement.

Brewer’s Yeast is one of the natural health world’s favorite supplements, and for good reason. it’s got lots of antioxidants like selenium in it, and ALL of the B vitamins you need. Gluten-free, too!

Selenium by Now Foods 180 Capsules

Selenium’s a great antioxidant that dones’t just help with acne dramatically but also boosts thyroid health. In fact, it’s crcucial to get adequate selenium for the sake of your thyroid…and it’s not easy to get in the diet.

Choline and Inositol by Nature’s Way, 180 Capsules

Choline is absolutely critical not only for brain function (and falling asleep!) but also for the liver and a speedy fat metabolism. This is an especially important supplement for people who don’t eat eggs or liver regularly. Pairing it with inositol helps increase its efficacy.

Jarrow’s Formula Taurine, 100 Capsules

Taurine is an extra-ordinary anti-oxidant that prevents against damage from free-oxygen radicals, aids in detox, supports the liver, and will also help support neurotransmitter function.  This is an excllent formulation of it too.

L-Methionine Free Form Amino Acid, 100 capsules

Methionine is an incredibly important amino acid that the body cannot make by itself – it must be consumed. It is converted into samE which is great for joints as well as for anxiety and depression, and is also a key player in the production of glutathione, perhaps the most important detox chemical in the body. Great for detox, liver support, weight loss, mental health, acne, and inflammation.

Source Naturals 5-HTP 120 Capsules

5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin that people often take both for better sleep and mental health as well as for reduced food cravings. It’s seriously powerful for the cravings. Err on the side of a smaller dose to start.

Source Naturals L-Tryptophan, 120 capsules

L-tryptophan is one of my favorite sleep aids. It’s remarkable for boosting serotonin, and is my favorite serotonin booster (even moreso than 5HTP, which in high doses can cause anxiety). Take it no more than an hour before bed. It’s also great for regulating appetite.

Free form L-tyrosine by Source Naturals, 100 tablets

This dopamine precursor is great to take with either 5htp or with tryptophan to help regulate and suppress an over-active appetite.

Red Boat Fish Sauce (AWESOME soy replacement)

Ever heard of Umami, the mysterious and much sought-after fifth flavor so popular in some cuisines?  It’s what makes MSG so addictive… but it’s here, and sooooo healthy instead of sooooo bad, in fish sauce.  Shamazeballs.

I can’t eat soy at all, period, but I don’t miss soy sauce, because COCONUT AMINOS.

If you haven’t tried pickled beets, now’s the time to start. And Othenic Organics…

these are the real, genuine picklers..the real deal.

Zukay Raw Beet Kvass, 6/case

Kvass is a fermented veggie drink, usually beets. It’s savory and sweet and tangy all at once… a must try at least once in your life! I love this drink over some ice cubes.

When I did dairy, I loved kefir. It’s basically fermented milk… and it comes in so many amazing flavors. Try plain first for a real, rich dairy experience.

Paleo Foods on the go

Smoked Salmon “candy” one piece

You literally cannot get a healthier snack than this, and super delicious, too.

Smoked Sockeye Wildcaught Salmon Packages (BPA free)

They gave these away to speakers at PaleoFx 2013 for free in the green room…. and I think I ate about 20 of them. This is the best packaged seafood I have ever had, period. It tasted like salmon at a 4 star restaurant.

Coconut butter is one (AMAZING) thing… knocking other nut butters out of the park not only in terms of health but also in terms of flavor…yet in easily-packed pockets for lunches or suitcases, it’s life-changing.

Organic buffalo. Cranberry. Stunning flavors. Variety to choose from. SOOO good (and run by the NICEST PEOPLE, too)

A teaspoon or so a day in a smoothie or mixed into a dish or a baked good is an excellent way to get your daily dose of resistant starch. Just remember NOT to cook it!

Exo Cricket Protein Bars, 12 pack.

Peanut butter and jelly flavor is out of this world amazing. Be careful – these bars have flax in them, which some women with very sensitive hormone systems might need to be careful of. Otherwise these are supremely healthy. Crickets are the protein of the future! Go eat these bars and tell your friends… or trick them into eating the crickets and prove that they’re so tasty after all!
