Irena Macri: Eat Drink Paleo was Irena’s very first paleo cookbook. The photography is as homemade as the cooking yet astonishing; it makes for a great coffee table book! Happy Go Paleo, Irena second cookbook which was released a in September 2015. It’s more relaxed and bends the rules a lil’ by mixing in some non-paleo foods to the recipes– hence the slogan “Fun, heathy meals from my 80/20 kitchen” It still a pretty awesome book and perhaps perfect for people transitioning to the Eat Real Food lifestyle. People based in AUSTRALIA can get the ebook version here. For her successful blog, Eat Drink Paleo click here.

Bullet Proof: These guys helped us whilst we were raising production money to make WLP, so we’d like to return the favor by spreading the word about them!

Primal Body Primal Mind: Nora Gedgaudas’ website. Her mantra: Beyond the paleo diet for total health and a longer life.
Robb Wolf: Another go-to website that never disappoints. Blog posts are written by contributors and what I like about Robb is that thanks to his scientific background (he’s a former biochemist), he’s always willing to consider opposing opinions… for all the geeks out there: there’s a lot of scientific data to sink your teeth into.
That Paleo Show: We had the honor of being on the show to talk about our film and speak with these fab Aussies! There website is chuck full of interviews, podcasts and other great resources from Down Under but also from the ever-growing paleo community.

(no less!), has written a truly insightful book (a #1 Beststeller in the Category Reproductive Medicine on Amazon) on the matter of child baring and the paleo lifestyle. Check it out here.
Recommended Books and Mags
Good Calorie, Bad Calorie: Not only is Gary Taubes a great writer, he’s also got some phenomenal investigating mojo… not to mention a knack for communicating things simply, yet effectively.
Grain Brain: By Dr. David Perlmutter, a phenomenal book for anyone wanting to dig deep into the reasons why your brain is better off grains… for ever.
The Primal Blueprint: This is how the director of WLP, Caroleen, got into paleo!
The Paleo Solution: A great easy read and very comprehensive. Will suit anyone, even younger people wanting to get healthy. Not one to chew his words, Robb has a no-nonsense approach that makes it really easy to follow and quite a developed sense of humor.
Wheat Belly: By Dr. William Davis. We’ve quoted him on WLP. And he’s frankly very blunt when it comes to the negative effects wheat has on human health.
Why we Get Fat and What to Do About It: Same author as above, same enlightening read. why we Get Fat has 4.5 stars and 1495 reviews. I rest my case.
Restaurants & Cafes
It’s happening guys, everywhere people are starting to wake up and smell the coffee… Yup, more and more venues are not only starting to offer Paleo/primal alternatives to their customers, but some transformed peeps out there are courageously taking the leap and opening paleo restaurants.
EatPerformance.com: Great grungy and delightfully decorated Paleo cafe in the Urban jungle that is Berlin. The food is good and you can eat for cheap whilst feeding your body with quality stuff. It’s adjacent to Spree Crossfit Gym… and you can see the place in our film!
Paleo Cafe: The first paleo franchise WORLDWIDE. These guys deserve applauds for putting everything on the line and starting this venture. The business is growing and with now XYZ cafes across the country, they’re bound to expand beyond Australian borders soon!
Picnik Austin: Of course, if you’ve seen our film you know these guys already… Naomi was the brave soul who opened a paleo food truck in Austin Texas and never looked back! They were the first to ver do so in the US, too back in 2013.
Other Cool Stuff
Bon Affair: Who says Paleo equals boring? Bon Affair is a wine spritzer company that produces wine spritzers with California wine and natural mineral water from the nearby Adobe Springs. Bon Affair has vegan natural favors and zero sugar (none of the fake stuff). You can also find in these wines a blend of electrolytes, grape seed extract and the natural magnesium from the spring water.
Chief: A very fresh and new find for us, Chief is a deliciously scrumptious protein bar made out of beef or lamb. I recently discovered this product along with the owner/creator, Veronika who lives here in Sydney, Australia. Unlike many protein bars out there, Chief is simply made out of grass-fed beef, almond and cranberry or grass-fed lamb, almond, currants. It’s 100% animal-protein based (as opposed to a lot of the competitors who make theirs with soy or whey protein and add tons of sugar to make it palatable. It’s also chemical, preservative, dairy and gluten free; it’s completely paleo! What I personally loved about the bars is that they taste just like homemade roast, no joke! We think its cool slogan “Eat Like a Chief” says it all.
Ketonix: A cool little device that allows you to measure the level of ketones in your breath! It’s very popular amongst the very-low carbers and ketogenic dieters, and can help assist you with your weight loss… Cause what gets measured gets managed.
Smart Desk: We hear it over and over lately: sitting for too long truly isn’t good for ya! Thank god for companies like Smart Desk. They designed a standing desk that actually talk to you! How wonderful is this? No wonder they crushed it on both Indiegogo AND Kickstarter!
Stand Desk: If you’re not up for a desk that talks to you or looking for a slighter cheaper option, go for these guys!
