My book is REALLY happening! (No, seriously. For real.) It’s READY. It’s DONE. It’s shipping in February! It’s called Eat the Yolks: Discover Paleo, Fight Food Lies, and Reclaim Your Health.
(Eat the Yolks for short. And for AWESOME.)
Wait, some of you may say. What happened to Modern Cave Girl, my book that was available for pre-order since the Pleistocene? (Or since about 1 year ago. Same difference.)
It’s an easy explanation. No, I don’t have 2 books. No, they didn’t change their mind about publishing Modern Cave Girl. It’s simple: Modern Cave Girl BECAME Eat the Yolks. HOWEVER, because the publishing world has Rules (meh), we couldn’t just switch the Modern Cave Girl listing to Eat the Yolks. We had to create an entirely new listing, and cancel Modern Cave Girl.
Make sense? So if you ordered Modern Cave Girl (thank you!) your order has been canceled by Amazon. It won’t ever ship, and, you won’t ever be charged. If you want to read my blather, you’ll need to order Eat the Yolks.
I promise, it’ll be worth it.
I know this, because the whole reason we changed titles and marketing and EVERYTHING is because this book is truly exceptional (can I say that about my own book?) It needed to reach a wider audience. It was about more than a sassy cave girl in a leopard skirt. It’s about everything. And calling it Modern Cave Girl just didn’t cut it.
This book is about the amazing-ness that is REAL FOOD. Egg yolks. Fat. Fat and protein from properly raised animals. The fruit and vegetable kingdom, which is healthful beyond any loaf of bread we’d find in the modern supermarket. We all want people – friends, family, co-workers who mock your steak salad – to know that this food is good for you. That we’ve been lied to. That an egg white omelet isn’t doing anyone any favors. That Paleo folk (or anyone that chooses to eat. real. food.) aren’t lined up for heart disease and gout and a bread deficiency.
That’s what Eat the Yolks is about. It’s not just about egg yolks. It’s about healthy fat. Animal protein. Healthy carbs. Nutrients and calories (and which of those two is most important). The truth about the foods we eat. And the hilariously sad, truly ridiculous reasons we stopped eating them in the first place.
That, with some classic movie references mixed in. Ya know, for good measure.
And there’s no dogma. Yes, it’s a Paleo book, because those are my roots. But I don’t spin anything as healthy or not healthy simply because it’s “Paleo” or “Not Paleo.” This is about truth, not about a label.
We’ve been fed a pack of lies for decades, and this book aims to put low-fat, low cholesterol, boxed-bagged-n’-packaged processed junk disguised as health food on blast while bringing the foods of our ancestors back. It tackles all the myths we’ve been fed for decades – even some of the myths about Paleo – and reveals some of the so-sad-its-hilarious back-story of many of our modern myths (in particular, with the section entitled Kellogg’s Flaccid Flakes).
And it’s TRULY happening. The book is done and on its way to print. No more waiting or wondering whether this gal’s gonna get her butt in gear and finish her book. It’s done. And you’re going to LOVE it!
Please, please, please – if you’ve gotten a crumb, a tidbit, or even a chuckle from me at any point, please consider pre-ordering this book. Pre-orders are what decides how far this book can go – in stores and in the media.
When you pre-order, let me know by posting to the comments, sending me a tweet, pinning this post, or posting on facebook. I want to thank you personally! And please consider sharing this book with friends and helping me spread the word. I would be SO grateful.
Thank you SO much for your support! This wouldn’t have happened without you.
