Having previously served as editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism and Journal of Evolutionary Health, Wolf knows that a healthy lifestyle means understanding the science behind food.
While many people have adopted a paleo diet for weight loss, Wolf recommends it as a solution for many everyday ailments. But where do you start? Luckily, we have Wolf’s favorite brands and products so you can kick-start and maintain a paleo lifestyle. Here are his top picks and why he loves them.
1. The Good Kitchen
I’d love to see everyone eat home-cooked meals, but what if you need something in a pinch? What if you forgot to bring a good option to work? This is where The Good Kitchen shines. These folks source 100 percent organic, holistically raised meats and veggies and put them together into amazing fresh or frozen delivered meals.
2. Thrive Market
What would happen if Whole Foods and Costco got liquored up at a rave and had a child? We’d call it Thrive Market. You can order all your trusted shelf staples you find at Whole Foods, from food to laundry detergent, but at 25 to 50 percent off retail.
3. Kettle and Fire bone broth
Protein is important, but it’s possible folks aren’t getting the right balance of amino acids. Bone broth isn’t only delicious and a key feature of any well-stocked kitchen, it can help you balance the amino acids that are critical to your health. I personally love Kettle and Fire’s bone broth!
4. Primal Kitchen bars
I’m usually hard-pressed to recommend any type of bar, but the founder of the Primal movement, Mark Sisson, has outdone himself with the new Primal Kitchen bars. Ranging from dark chocolate to macadamia nut, these low-carb, high-fiber, collagen-rich bars are as tasty as they are healthy.
5. Sleep Remedy
Developed by my good friend Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, Sleep Remedy can help you get the best night’s sleep possible. Dr. Parsley was a Navy SEAL before becoming a doctor. He developed the formula working with active duty SEALS who experience significant sleep problems due to travel, stress, and a host of other factors.
6. Dry Farm Wines
I swore off wine for a long time. It always seemed to disturb my sleep and left me feeling “blegh.” Then a friend suggested I try Dry Farm Wines, which is produced mainly in the fashion of old European vineyards. Their wines are low in sugar, taste amazing, and frequently come from vineyards which may be hundreds of years old.
