The Squirrel Meets The Paleo Mom

Oh. My. GOSH!!!!! I got to meet Sarah Ballantyne today!!!!!

The Squirrel meets The Paleo Mom - The Paleo Approach Cookbook book signing

The Squirrel meets The Paleo Mom – The Paleo Approach Cookbook book signing

When I moved to the Atlanta area, I knew I’d be exposed to some cool new things. And when I got the email that Sarah’s new book, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, was coming out and she was having a book signing only 30 minutes from my house, I was more than excited.

The Paleo Approach (her first book) literally changed my life. It’s all about healing automimmune diseases with a modified paleo diet. Sarah explains all the science behind autoimmune issues and how they can be addressed by changing your diet. While reading her book, I found out that I had been diagnosed with 3 different autoimmune disorders over the last couple of years. When I read that book, I sat on my couch in the middle of the night and cried. I literally said out loud that night, “She gets me.” That book made me accept that what I was experiencing wasn’t just in my head. Reading about her journey, and realizing that I was going through something similar, gave me so much hope that I could fix it and get better. And tonight I got to thank her for all of that.

HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?!

She is amazing. I already knew she was wicked smart. But she’s also super funny and really nice. She gave me advice on which farmer’s market I should go to and where I should buy my pastured pork. We laughed and we hugged. And she let me get a TON of pictures for my blog.

So, stay tuned to hear all about her new cookbook and the many, many recipes I will be trying in the near future. 🙂

One last thing, a big HUGE thank you to my driver/photographer/all-around-amazing-bestie, Mitchell… who not only drove me there, stood in line for a long time as one of only 4 men in that store, took every one of these pictures, and even ate the catered paleo food. You are absolutely the best!
