Twenty years ago the Paleo diet had a few review papers or references in anthropology books and papers. Many detractors cited a “lack of research” to support the Paleo diet/Ancestral health template. That story has changed. We now have well-conducted human trails on a host of different topics, with a consistent theme which paints the Paleo diet as safe, effective, and beneficial over the long haul. There are still detractors who cite a paucity of research, but we now have Dr. Sarah Ballantyne’s Magnum Opus, Paleo Principles, which compiles and puts into context the vast body of research which now encompasses the Paleo diet.

About the Author
Sarah Ballantyne, PhD, earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics from the University of Western Ontario at age 26. She spent the next four years doing research on innate immunity, inflammation, critical care medicine, gene therapy, and epithelial cell biology at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, and at the University of Arizona before becoming a stay-at-home mom, a decision motivated largely by her poor health at the time.
After her second daughter was born, Dr. Ballantyne began to experiment with the Paleo lifestyle. It had an amazing effect on her health, contributing to her 120-pound weight loss. Over time, she healed herself of a laundry list of physical complaints, including irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, migraines, anxiety, asthma, allergies, psoriasis, and the autoimmune skin condition lichen planus.
Inspired by her success, Dr. Ballantyne created the popular and award-winning health blog www.ThePaleoMom.com and became co-host of a top-rated syndicated podcast, The Paleo View. Together, her passion for providing straightforward explanations of the science behind her diet and lifestyle recommendations for managing autoimmune disease and her conviction that healing your body does not have to come at the expense of enjoying food form the foundation of her books, The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook.

Sarah’s first book, ‘The Paleo Approach - Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body’ has proved life changing for so many autoimmune sufferers around the world, including me.
‘Paleo Principles’ is for a broader audience. This book is a comprehensive guide for anyone seeking to understand the ‘why’ behind the benefits of taking an ancestral approach to diet and lifestyle choices.
And, boy does it deliver. It's a game changer. 2414 pages of up-to-date science, easy-to-navigate guides and oodles of recipes.
If you ask for just one book for Christmas - make it this one!
If you aren’t familiar with Sarah’s work, her superpower is translating many thousands of medical studies into clear, actionable guidelines for both reclaiming and maintaining our best health. Her work is a gift for both those who crave the “whys” of every tenet of this movement, as well as those who want to rest easy knowing the changes they are making are guided by scientific research.
I thought her first book, The Paleo Approach was incredible (and many of us, including me, are healthy today because of it!), but Paleo Principles is simply the most impressive book I have ever seen on nutrition and lifestyle science. Not only does it contain a thorough scientific discussion of every tenet of ancestral eating and lifestyle, but it contains everything one needs to implement them, as well as over 200 recipes. It is the new go-to resource for anyone looking to learn more or get started with a Paleo lifestyle.
So, what are my favorite things about Paleo Principles?
>>Its focus on nutrient density. This book is just set up to help you understand the science in this area, and the endless charts and graphs help you visualize the content of what is on your plate.
>>It isn’t dogmatic. In the last few years, Paleo has outgrown a lot of the strict rules that took hold in the early days of the movement. I'm super appreciative of Sarah for including a whole chapter in her book dedicated to the areas where science isn’t so clear about what we should or shouldn’t be eating, and how to make a best informed decision with these foods. She addresses areas like grass-fed dairy, legumes, rice, and alcohol, all big reintroduction questions in our community.
>>It supports an individual approach. This book supports the idea that everyone comes to diet and lifestyle changes from a different place, and that one person’s journey may look very different from another’s. Sarah discusses the ins and outs of each potential change, helping her readers decide what might be right for them instead of making blanket recommendations. Her troubleshooting section is an absolute goldmine for those who have been eating this way for a while, but are still experiencing difficulties.
>>Did I mention the recipes? Oh, and there are over 200 incredible recipes in this book, along with meal plans for specific situations, shopping guides, and other implementation tools.
In short, this is one ground-breaking and game-changing book, and we can’t wait to see how it impacts the legitimacy of this movement as a whole.
