The second edition of Practical Paleo released this Fall and it is an amazing updated and expanded resource from Diane Sanfilippo! I cannot say enough amazing things about this book. If you have seen the first edition, which is a New York Times Bestseller and has sold over half a million copies (!!!!!), you know that Diane’s book is so much more than just a cookbook, it dives into health issues, how to eat for your body and health, and so much more. It’s truly an essential book to have on your book shelf.

I’ve met Diane only twice now, and we instantly clicked. I feel like I’ve known her for years! If you have met her, you can attest that she is beyond smart, so sweet, extremely talented and simply put, she knows what she is doing! She poured all of this into the Second Edition of Practical Paleo!
