Before Paleo, Jamison suffered a heart attack at the young age of 26, which was a big wake up call that he needed to take his health much more seriously from here on out. Jamison will be helping us review some of the fantastic Paleo cookbooks on the market right now, and he has great tips for saving money, and eating healthy on a budget. Look for more from Jamison on our website and Facebook from here on out! -Hayley and Bill
As a busy bachelor on a budget, I am always on the lookout for new recipes to try that are quick, easy and affordable. Even better, it’s a score when I find a recipe that will guarantee some leftovers that can double as lunch the next day. When Tammy Credicott sent the Primal Palate office a copy of her newest book Make Ahead Paleo, I quickly grabbed it and had to be the first of our team to flip through and find a recipe to try. Also, Hayley told me Tammy was super sweet, and makes delicious and beautiful recipes, so I knew this was a book we needed to try cooking out of.
