Paleo recipe blogger and cookbook author Kelly Bejelly is our guest today in Episode 905 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
One of the newer names and faces making an impact in the Paleo blogosphere in recent years is a Portland, Oregon-based mom named Kelly Bejelly from the "A Girl Worth Saving" blog and the co-host of the "Listen Up Paleo" podcast she does with Liz McGaw. Kelly is a savvy recipe developer, writer and photographer who was contacted last year by a major publisher who wanted to make her dream of writing a book a reality. That book--Paleo Eats: 111 Comforting Gluten-Free, Grain-Free and Dairy-Free Recipes for the Foodie in You--is now available and Kelly is here today to talk about it.
Listen to Jimmy and Kelly share about how her diagnosis of pre-diabetes in 2009 woke her up to making a change, the shift she made from being a vegetarian/vegan over to Paleo (thanks to the influence of Mark Sisson), the weight loss and health success overcoming PCOS, anxiety and depression she found making simply changes in her diet, how she has incorporated the healthy habits she has learned with her son, why her recipes are simple and for the masses, and her reaction to many common criticisms and fallacies about Paleo (it's about having "rock hard abs," you have to eat grass-fed and organic foods, and you will automatically become very lean when you eat this way), and a lot more. Kelly is an amazingly inspiring story of someone who has changed her life forever thanks to the Paleo diet and is now seeking to help others in their own journey to better health.
