Beyond Bacon Giveaway: The Whole Paleo Package!

The winner of last’s week giveaway is Mary Michela!

It’s now TIME! Beyond Bacon is in your local bookstore! You can finally get your pork on! We hope you’re enjoying the book if you’ve already gotten it or already have you piggy parts ready if you’re still waiting.

If you’re still on the fence, what can we do to get you reading a brand new cookbook? We’ve shared reviews from some of your favorite bloggers, which we’ve collected here and here and here and here! You can also see awesome teasers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter by searching #beyondbacon. You can even read the reviews on Amazon or Barnes and Noble  or Good Reads (all five stars so far!)! We’d love for you to add your own!

We’ve always said that the greatest thing about the paleo community is how many different voices there are out there. We reached out to our paleo friends and asked several of them to give one of you some of their work. We’re calling this the Whole Paleo Package!

Practical Paleo

Practical Paleo Featured Image


We are huge fans of Practical Paleo. We consider it the best and most comprehensive guide to implementing the paleo diet for your actual life. From specific modifications, to the basic science to even meal plans, we truly thing that Diane Sanfilippo has assembled one tremendous book that you’re sure to treasure! One winner will receive a copy of Practical Paleo!

The Food Lovers’ trio: Make It Paleo, Gather & The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of The Food Lovers, Bill and Hayley. Ever since we first met them, we’ve been truly impressed by their dedication to their craft. Make It Paleo was one of the first Paleo cookbooks out there and certainly still remains one of the most beautiful. Then they followed it up with Gather, which is one of the most beautiful books we’ve ever seen! On top of that, The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking is a perfect kick-start to anyone’s paleo journey! Our winner will receive a copy of all 3 of their books!

Well Fed Socks

Crossfit Day 20 by @PaleoParents

We love the Clothes Make the Girl and its proprietor Melissa Joulwan. Not only that, but we loved her first cookbook, Well Fed, and eagerly await Well Fed 2! Stacy was such a big fan that she bought pairs of her long socks with which to squat (before Virginia’s humid summers took over). Look at that weight. I am certain that it’s gotta be the socks that give her such impressive power! Plus, it’s a message that all real-food enthusiasts can get behind!

Thanks to Melissa, our winner will be sent a pair of awesome socks!

Caveman Feast eBook



George, the Civilized Caveman, has practically become family after his recent trip to Virginia. Abel is about the most genuine human being you could ever meet, either in person, or over Skype! Together they put forth the most manly of cookbooks to your ebook reader (ppst: foreshadowing!): Caveman Feast! You’ll love this wonderful tour of paleo cooking just as much as we did!

Thanks to George, our winner will receive a copy of the Caveman Feast ebook!

Primal Blueprint


One of the books to inspire all of us (specifically, Stacy’s mom!), The Primal Blueprint is a landmark work on how working with your body and its genetic legacy will lead to increased health and happiness. Mark was gracious enough to visit our podcast, making that episode our most popular, not to mention most fun! Our winner will receive a copy of The Primal Blueprint!

Against All Grain



Danielle Walker is the fantastic cook and photographer behind Against All Grain the blog and upcoming book. She’s also the official Paleo View most visited guest! We were lucky enough to see this book before it went to print and are super excited to offer you a PRE-RELEASE copy of  Against All Grain and we’re sure you are, too. Well, our winner is in luck!



Stacy and I often joke that we have black thumbs. We kill the most hearty of plants. Cactus? Dead. Grass? Dead. All the various fermentations we’ve tried from sauerkraut to kombucha? Dead. We are really looking forward to receiving Jill Ciciarelli’s new book Fermented so that we can perhaps learn how to do it the right way and have actual homemade ferments! And now our winner will be able to try it, too, with a PRE-RELEASE copy of this gorgeous book photographed by none other than Bill of Primal Palate!

Beyond Bacon eBook and a KINDLE to read it with!

And last but not least, our winner will receive the ebook of Beyond Bacon with a Kindle to read it on! You ever have a cookbook so pretty that it would be a shame to stain it? Well, your perfect solution is here! A lightweight ebook reader will fit right at home in your kitchen so your beloved book can stay on the shelf! That’s how we do, and we hope you’ll enjoy that convenience too!

    Quick question. On the entries such as “share on pinterest” or “follow on instagram” do you want our name or account name in the box? It doesn’t say but that is what I assumed. Hope I’m right!

    Ok, so I thought I was signed up to receive your newsletter, I used to get it. But, I have not seen it in awhile. So when entering the giveaway, I tried to sign up again, but it says there was an error with your submission. Maybe because I am already signed up? Awesome giveaway, by the way, and I am soooo loving Beyond Bacon!

  • Emilie Leadley Gillick

    So I entered a review in for you at iTunes. I hope they load them by batch because I do not see my entry at this time. Grrr. I will look again tomorrow and if it isn’t there, I will reenter. This is perhaps the best giveaway I have seen! Thank you.

  • therealjeaniebeanie

    I did all the entries but Instagram, which I can’t figure out how to register with (offers only a login option, no register option, huh?) as I’m not familiar with it, and I haven’t written a review, since I haven’t had a chance to get my hands on the book yet, much less read it. But I want to!

  • Stephanie

    Such an awesome giveaway, thanks so much for the opportunity!
