Healthy choices, simplified.

The goal of the work that we do here at Balanced Bites (including Practical Paleo books, The 21-Day Sugar Detox books and program, the Balanced Bites Podcast, and my work with Build a Badass Business), is to support you in making healthy choices for your body, mind, and spirit. It's our goal to make these choices easier for you with the information and materials we create.

Create a life you love.

I firmly believe that we are in control of our own lives, and we choose to create our own destiny. Sure, things do happen in our lives that may not be ideal, but how we handle those situations, – and the choices we make every day – contribute to either a life we love, or one we don't. We want to help you create a life you love.

Without fun, there's no point.

We think that eating good food should be fun! And since a central theme of this site is food (mostly because food is the best thing in the world – of course!), we hope to inject some fun into your cooking and your weekly or nightly meal prep.

You are our focus.
