Many thanks to Todd Dosenberry aka Primal Toad for bringing this epic wellness sale together! 25 unique authors (including Todd and yours truly!) said yes to contributing their ebook(s) to form what is now the Toadally Primal Wellness Bundle.
Myself and 24 other authors have taken control of our own health through an alternative lifestyle that encompasses nutrition and food in a way that goes against conventional wisdom while savoring tradition from less than 100 years ago. It takes fortitude and foresight to embark on this journey and I know you are right there with us.
The word Primal is in the title of this eBundle which indicates a focus on the Paleo/Primal way of eating, but did you know that GAPS and Paleo/Primal foods are rather compatible? Paleo and Primal can be slightly more restrictive since they avoid dairy and legumes. I have vetted the cookbooks (except for Well Fed which was just so huge that I only skimmed it as I salivated over the gorgeous photos but most were GAPS legal) available and will offer a brief description alongside the titles in orange font.
Nutrition may be the most important but it’s meaningless without changes in other lifestyle factors. These include play, sleep, skin care, fitness, socialization and in comparison to today’s society, slowing down and enjoying the countless blessings that we are all surrounded with.
