The Latest & Greatest from Amazon (Including a Giveaway!)

It is no secret that we heavily rely on Amazon to support our healthy living journey. From grocery deliveries managed through Amazon’s Subscribe and Save, to unrivaled prices on our favorite cookbooks and kitchen tools, Amazon is a big reason why we are able to keep up with the paleo lifestyle without busting our budget.

So every now and then, we like to share what we’ve been using and why we recommend it. Maybe you’ll find that one perfect thing that will make your life complete!

Here are some of our new favorites that we highly recommend!

Be sure to check out the giveaway details at the end of the post for instructions on how you can win an item of your choice from this list!

Spiral Slicer


There are a number of things that you can do with a spiral slicer, but we especially love it for zucchini noodles and sweet potato hash browns. Plus this is a meal prep project that kids love to help with!


GoFit Pull-Up Bar


Matt got one of these for his birthday so that he could practice at home. It’s held two different 200 pound people, plus several under 60 pound people with no signs of failure!

    Woo hoo! Dying to start fermenting! I just ordered Fermented to help get me started.

  • Stephanie KL

    My sweet potatoes await the spiral slicer. My cucumbers need pickling. I recently saw an article that tea drinkers should be using loose tea and an infuser instead of bagged tea. The bags are highly toxic. Actually any of the items would be appreciated.

    I’m a little confused by the end date of the giveaway. The Rafflecopter says 7+ days and the text under Matt’s rules says it ends on September 12. So I’m able to when to check if I’m a winner, could you solve my dilemma?

    • Yes, that changed and we forgot to edit the post. Giveaway will be finished when Rafflecopter says it will be.

    I could so use that pull-up bar! I did two months of crossfit this summer, and I just managed one “real” pullup by the end of it. I want to keep the momentum going now!
