While waiting in line at Whole Foods the other day, I became a victim of product placement. Right in front of me was a new magazine and the title caught my attention, Paleo Magazine, and it screamed “pick me up.” Of course I obliged and quick flipped through the pages. Being in line at the grocery store, I was obviously hungry and the adds for all kinds of Paleo foods and a glimpse at a few recipes was enough to sell me. When I got home and read through it I was pretty happy with the information provided in the magazine, and if nothing else, I learned about a bunch of new paleo food products available that I probably wouldn’t have found otherwise.
The articles approached a variety of interesting topics, like children’s shoe reviews, and a school lunch review. There were also reviews of paleo books, apps and kitchen utensils. They typical paleo topics were covered, 101, common myths, diets and diseases, and Q&A with a paleo dietitian. One topic I was glad to see covered was the topic of skin care. There was an article on sun exposure with a breakdown of “good and bad” rays, how far different types of sunscreens go and some of the risks associated with those products as well. They also advertised different natural skin care products including a make up and deodorants. As I mentioned before, it was not lacking in the food department, there were several good recipes, a monthly meal plan and lots of advertisements for paleo foods for on the go, places to order fresh meats and veggies, and also places to order pre-cooked meals delivered to your home. Now don’t let the title of the magazine fool you, there were recipes and foods advertised that are definitely not whole 30 and not really paleo compliant either, so you still have to do your homework before ordering product.
Hopefully they can maintain the quality of articles in future editions, there should be one coming out in the next month. In the mean time I might order a few products advertised in the magazine and I’ll share with all of you if I find something of use. Otherwise, swing into your nearest Whole Foods and pick up a copy for yourself.
