New This Week / June 20, 2018

Hi there! Big news over here… I’m writing another book! (spoiler alert – it’s on keto!) Back in 2011 when I was writing “Practical Paleo,” I was actually *eating* KETO paleo.

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend! Scott & I had a wonderfully relaxing weekend here at home — keeping up with our normal routine of walking down along the water here in SF, barbecuing with some friends, a trip to Costco to finally see my 21DSD Daily Guide book on the shelf, and setting up a …

Hey everyone! I had a lovely couple of days away from home celebrating Scott & my 40th birthdays (which are 3 weeks apart) together in Monterey.

One of our most recent Balanced Bites Podcast episodes has really resonated with a lot of you so far, so I wanted to highlight it here as well.

Some of you may know this, others may not, but I am exceptionally good at gaining weight. I cook delicious food, and I often over-work and over-stress myself in ways that make the balance of my life tip. And, so, it happens.

Why I don’t just talk about food

Why I *don't* just talk about food. #DIANEDIRECT | Diane Sanfilippo
