B) Don’t forget, we still need your help <3

Last week we asked many of you a favor, and we’d still LOVE for you to help us out… But first, THANK YOU. It was our absolute dream for our book to be in Costco. Lots of authors have visions and goals for their books, and ours was very distinct: we wanted to be in stores where regular, everyday people who could benefit from the simple, unintimidating, friendly approach in Real Life Paleo. So we asked for your help… and since that call for action, our book has been picked up by ALL Costcos in Canada! This is HUGE!!


Talk about dreams coming true! Wow, we just can’t thank you all enough for helping us reach so many people! We’ve had mind-blowing-amazing response to Real Life Paleo. Both online and in person hearing people’s feedback and stories about how this book will help others just blows us away.

In Seattle someone asked us to tell the story of how we got started with this whole blogging thing. If you’re not familiar with our story, we never set out to be “bloggers” or authors. Don’t us wrong, we are incredibly appreciative and grateful to have done so and be loved by so many in the process.  But, because of that we’ve never really made it our focus to push our own “products” very hard. If you’re interested, great. If not, no problem – there’s plenty of others’ we hope works for you! However, we’re now at this really cool point in our journey where we see the potential to actually help a LOT more people.

We still want to help the majority of people (especially unhealthy Americans) realize that their own health and that of their family can be changed positively beyond their imagination. Because that’s what happened to us and that’s why we wrote Real Life Paleo. We want to show the normal, everyday, REAL LIFE person – no matter how busy their lives – that this lifestyle is possible. We still have one more piece of our dream to make come true: getting into Costco USA.

Can you help us? We can’t do this by ourselves. The Paleo movement in general has grown by word of mouth from the success stories and incredible testimonies we’ve all shared. And now we need that organic grassroots movement to help us get the word out about Real Life Paleo. We truly believe that Real Life Paleo is the missing link the community has been looking for, it’s why we wrote the darn thing! We think it’s the PERFECT intro book for people who think they can’t, people who struggle to stay on, or people who just want darn good nutrient-dense, healing recipes. It will make the perfect holiday gift! So PLEASE if you have the book, want the book, or think someone else would – the best things you can do in order to help us spread the word are:

1. PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEW on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Good Reads, Book Depository or anywhere you can find online!

2. Spread the word and buy the book! If you want it for Christmas, ask that person to buy it now instead of later so that stores don’t think it won’t sell (that way they’ll stock more for the holidays!). Even better, buy a copy for the people in your life for the holidays!

3. If you don’t have cash on hand spreading the word by simply telling people about it or sharing links does us a HUGE favor. Especially sharing it in your social media with links and the #RealLifePaleo

Remember, if even the Avengers need a team to beat some bad guys then certainly we’re going to have to band together to overtake some of the REAL LIFE “bad guys”!
