Weekend Wrap-Up, 8/16

Every Saturday we bring you a blog rendition of some of our favorite things going on this week in our own world and in the paleo world at large in a Weekend Wrap-Up. Every week we will feature our favorite paleo recipes from our archives and from other paleo bloggers that are  on our minds lately, as well as a few coupons for products we personally love, and some suggested reading for things we found interesting this week. Let’s do this thing!

Back from AHS!

After a crazy 4 days on the road, Stacy finally landed back in Virginia from the Ancestral Health Symposium! We’re so happy to have her back, but it was certainly a crazy trip for her! Want to know all the details of her trip? Read her Recap post here

Archive Recipe of the Week: Salt & Vinegar Kale Chips

Salt & Vinegar Kale Chips by PaleoParents

Kale is showing up a LOT in our local farmer’s markets, and this is one of our favorite recipes! This is such a great way to get that familiar flavor of Salt and Vinegar Chips, but in a low-carb recipe that helps you get all your dark leafy greens in your diet!

Recommended Reading


We had Michele from Happy Paleo Kids on our blog as a guest a couple of weeks ago and she wrote about “Why Kids Need Dirt,” but we also love this article on her blog about the importance of play in children’s lives. We have decided that we have too many electronics and tv time, so this summer we have been trying to find fun activities to do together as a family instead of just sitting in front of the boob tube! We love Michele’s writing style, and her practical tips for natural parenting. 


playing games

Recommended Products: Munchkin Games


When Stacy was in California, she met up with Matt’s brother Andrew to find a present for the boys. What they came up with was a new version of their favorite game,Munchkin! Munchkin is an extremely fun card game with a sense of humor that let’s you pretend to slay monsters! We play it with both Finn and Cole practically every night and think that your kids will find a version that appeals to them!
