Friday Shout Outs #9

FSO9It’s Fri-yay!!!!!

Welcome back to another installment of Friday Shout Outs where we clue you in on all things Sassy and Pearl from the books we read to the blogs we follow, foods we eat, and instagram accounts we stalk, I mean, enjoy. Happy Friday, friends!

What I’m Reading

Brain Maker by Dr. David Perlmutter is my JAM right now. Dr. Perlmutter is a neurologist that focuses on how diet effects the brain. I first heard about him when he wrote Grain Brain (I mean, how great is that title?) and I’ve been following his work ever since. His latest book, Brain Maker, is all about the interplay between the gut microbiome and the brain and how rectifying a dysbiosis in the gut can treat and even cure brain diseases and mental illnesses. Y’all know how much I love the gut microbiome and getting nerdy and this book totally satisfies that need. My only complaint is, don’t you think his name should be spelled Pearlmutter?! #pearltopia Continue reading “Friday Shout Outs #9”

Happy Friday, y’all and welcome back to week #4 of Friday Shout Outs! This weekend I am heading out to the Adirondacks to crush out a few of the high peaks and take in more views like this one. Anyone else going to be there? If you are, consider checking out our podcast on Real Food Traveling before you go so you know exactly how you can stick to your real food goals while on the road. You should also check out one of these books for your night time reading under the stars…

What’s The Deal WithPrimal Eating and the Paleo Diet?– If you’re super confused about paleo/primal diets and want to learn more you should check out this book by Kelly Schmidt, RD, LDN. Kelly’s book covers all the things from grains, to sugars, to dairy, to eating on a budget, and lifestlye. Not to mention the fact that Nutrition Genius Radio is referenced in the resources section!

Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk– I don’t know about you but one of the things I miss the most now that I’m eating a real food diet is Chinese takeout. The good news is, thanks to Russ Crandall of The Domestic Man we don’t have to miss it anymore! This cookbook is packed full of amazing recipes AND cooking tips and tricks. Stay tuned because Russ will be making an appearance on an upcoming episode of Nutrition Genius Radio!

deep nutritionDeep Nutrition by Dr. Cate Shanahan will always have a soft spot in mine and Sassy’s hearts. This book was one of the catalysts for both of us to continue on our real food journey and an inspiration to break out of the traditional RD mold and teach our clients about whole, real foods cooked in traditional ways. Dr. Shanahan breaks down the science of why a real food diet is better and how sugar is killing you.

Quotes

“My weaknesses have always been food and men- in that order.” -Dolly Parton

“The scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of that number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!” -Steve Maraboli

“When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.” -William Arthur Ward

Instagrammers

@grassfedgirl- Catlin Weeks, author of the Mediterranean Paleo Cooking, has an instagram that looks a lot like ours- food, fitness, and quotes. Check out her website for #pearlandsassyapproved recipes, and essential oil and lifestyle information.

@thespunkycoconut– Holy food porn! Not only is Kelly V. Brozyna killing it with drool worthy food pictures she is also a food blogger at The Spunky Coconut where she posts gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo recipes. Bonus points because she is also a quote fan.

@plaidandpaleo– Miss Vanessa Jay describes herself as a paleo blogger, hippie in training, exercise dabbles, and essential oil junkie. I’m not quite sure why we haven’t become best friends yet but I’ve been hard core crushing on her instagram food pics for awhile now and I think you should too.

We want to hear from you!
