“Yeah, it’s a fad diet and you’re so disappointed that I am buying into this crap, right? Well, I’m going on 18 months of sticking with it and I’ve never felt better in my life. I don’t think of it as a diet as much as a really good argument for giving up processed food. Friends ask me all the time where they should start to read about it if they want to give it a go, and this book is the first thing I recommend…

Bauman College Spring 2012 Course Catalog features me in their Graduate Spotlight. Check out the entire catalog here or just the feature here.

Graduate Spotlight: Diane Sanfilippo, Nutrition Consultant
“I attended the Nutrition Consultant Training Program in Berkeley, CA and graduated in June of 2011. Early in 2008, I opened Balanced Bites, an organic, gluten-free meal delivery business. I managed all aspects of the business, including web design, marketing, shopping for ingredients, menu planning, cooking, and delivery of meals. After only a few months, I realized I wanted to do more than provide healthy meals — I wanted to teach my clients, family, and friends to provide for themselves. I realized my passion was to teach people how they could take responsibility for their own health through proper nutrition and lifestyle. I wanted to enable my clients to plan, shop for, and prepare healthy meals all on their own.”

“Paleo diet suggests you get back to your caveman roots”

By Stefanie Loh, The Patriot-News

“The largest benefit of going Paleo is that “it restores normal function to your gut and digestive system,” said Diane Sanfilippo, a holistic nutritionist who runs a Paleo nutrition blog. “It’s what most people have trouble with but they don’t even know because nobody talks about it. Bloating and diarrhea are not normal and we shouldn’t be experiencing that at all.”

Adopting the Paleo perspective is like hitting a reset button on your digestive system.”

“DIY: Maple-Sage Beef Jerky Recipe”

People tend to over-complicate making beef jerky. I have found that if you’re dealing with good quality meat (ideally grass-fed), when it comes to a marinade, less is more. The very first time I made jerky it was from elk and I basically tossed the meat in some spices and then chucked it in the dehydrator.
