D.I.G is born!

This is a blog for all the Earth-loving, Paleo/Primal-eating, alignment-and-health-focused DIY-ers out there.  I’ll be sharing whole food recipes, how I acquire my grub, natural beauty products I make, and things I do to improve my health despite a busy work-life.

Be warned, it’ll get a little crunchy in here.  But that’s why I’ve dubbed the blog D.I.G…because different is good.


My name is Alex and I’ll be your Dig hostess.  Important characters you’ll meet throughout the blog will be Mr. Dig (my wonderful husband) and Ms. Pixel Dig (our punky but loveable kitty cat).  Others you’ll meet will be M. Dig and D. Dig–they’re my parents and are the people who taught me to appreciate taking care of myself and the earth.  They’ll be important to you because M. Dig makes the best Paleo recipes out there and D. Dig is the official food quality control guy.  There’s also K. Dig who is my 9 year old sister and is the reason that M. Dig has come up with a lot of the kid-friendly Paleo/Primal recipes I’ll be sharing on here.

So with the introduction finished, I’m headed to the shower where I’ll be using my soapnut shampoo and herbal conditioner (recipes to follow soon!).

Thanks for stopping by and a huge welcome to you all!

  1. Awesome blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you
    knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

    • Thanks very much for the kind words! I’m so glad that you’ve found it helpful. And I’m very sorry for the delay in response, work has been a little bit crazy for me.

      I’m hoping to start a forum someday here too but in the meantime: I think The Paleo Mom has a facebook forum that she moderates and I’ve heard good stuff about that. I believe Chris Kresser has something similar. I mention those because I love both of their lifestyle approaches and I think you’re more likely to get good answers from the forums moderated by them (I think forums can get a little confusing if there are too many conflicting–and potential uninformed–opinions going around!). I also know there’s PaleoHacks and Mark Sisson’s Mark’s Daily Apple that I’ve looked through quite a bit. I also know that there are paleo meet up groups that you can find through meetup.com.

      Hope that all helps! If you don’t find something you like, let me know and I can help you look for something that works for you a little bit better!
