2016 is over and done, and if you’re reading this you’ve survived it.

Now that 2017 is here, it’s time to take a minute and reflect on where we’ve been.

About this time of year I also like to round up all the fun and exciting programs, products, and advances that have happened in the paleo community.

Every Friday we publish something new, and now I’m rounding them up for you.

Here’s all the best stuff to happen to paleo in 2016:

Supplements and Health

Whats new in paleo supplements and health products?  Lots!

For example, a whole new kind of protein that might just change the world.  And we found out how pumpkin can pack some nutritional power here.  Clarity on how the liver affects all your hormones.

We talked about the difference between prebiotics and probiotics, and how both are important for health.  Find out more here.

And we found out how to properly fuel our workouts here.  And then we talked a bit about the switch to walking here.

We found teas that help balance hormones, and a book that helps those with autoimmunity.

We learned to de-stress and sleep like a pro.  And we learned about the biggest and best changes to grass fed meat delivery in 2016 here


Some great beauty products came out in 2016, too.  Here’s a few we covered.

First, we found out about probiotic skincare here, something that just might change your face for good!

We learned tips for shiny, beautiful hair here

And we found the best deodorant for sensitive skin.

Self-Love and Discovery

This year some truly great programs came out.

2016 was another year to live in a modern, vibrant world, a world that is finally beginning to awaken to the truth about food, health, and lifestyle.  And YOU were a part of the paleo movement.  All in all, I’d say that’s a pretty good thing!
