About EasyPaleoMeals

EasyPaleoMeals is the culmination of nearly five years of personal experience with the Paleo lifestyle.

My original blog, PaleoCookies.net (now owned by someone else) was my first foray into writing about my experience with the Paleo diet.  I originally started the blog to help me bridge the gap between the whole-grain diet I had previously been eating and the Paleo/Primal diet foods I was starting to eat as I transitioned to Paleo.

As I have watched other blogs come (and go) on the Paleo scene I have definitely formed my own personal opinions on Paleo eating and Paleo living.

I will be quite frank and state that I am not a hardcore Paleo conformist.  Some (authorities and wannabe authorities) may tell you not to bother fooling yourself by trying to recreate conventional recipes with Paleo ingredients.  But that is not my opinion, and from the trends I see on the web, that is not where the general consensus lies.

I find that most people eating Paleo or starting Paleo diets want to eat what is familiar to them and that is what the industry has been leaning towards.

EasyPaleoMeals continues on that bent and will focus on familiar foods reproduced or improved upon by integrating Paleo components and eliminating the foods which are detrimental to our health.

I hope that I will be able to provide you with some great Paleo recipes, reviews, and advice without any lecturing on what is right for you.  That is up to you to ultimately decide for yourself.

What About Cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide convenient features during your current and return visits. Cookies may be used to remember visitor preferences when interacting with the website.  In common with other Web sites, log files are stored on the web server saving details such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visit.  Where registration is required, the visitor’s email and a username will be stored on the server.

  • The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party Web sites.

These third-party Web sites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or “serve”) the advertisements that appear on our Web site directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party Web sites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies (also called “ad networks” or “network advertisers”), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection.

Full Disclosure and Transparency Summary

To summarize everything: You are using the information provided on this website at your own risk.  The sad reality these days is that people do not like to blame themselves for the negative repercussions of actions they may take.  I am letting you know upfront that I am not a health professional.  Everything here is my opinion and should be taken as such.  If you get sick or injured, you don’t like a product I like, someone steals your identity, your goldfish dies or someone kicks your puppy, or any other bad things that happen in life, please do not blame this website.

Links to products and resulting commissions attributed to the owner of a website are the norm on the internet.  Most websites or people on the internet do not disclose this but I do here because it is a reality.  In case you didn’t know, this is exactly how websites make money and stay in business (either selling advertising space, or recommending products).  EPM is no different… other than the fact that I disclose this info.  You click on a link, buy a product or service, and I will receive a commission which pays for the operation of this website.

Thank you so much for reading and I sincerely appreciate your support!
