Happy Spring Paleo Diet Readers!
February was a sad time at The Paleo Diet with the passing of one of the pioneers of the Paleo Diet and a close friend – Dr. Staffan Lindeberg. So, it’s only appropriate that our feature article is a moving tribute by Pedro Bastos, Dr. Lindeberg’s final Ph.D. student.
Along with the tribute we also brought you our usual postings of practical nutrition advice, recipes, and interesting new science to live a healthy Paleo lifestyle. This month we took on the challenges of Valentine’s Day with recipes for a five course Paleo meal to share with a loved one and even advice on how to have your chocolate and eat it to! Christopher Clark lets you know how to get enough B vitamins in your diet and of course both Nell and Jane share their regular monthly posts.
We hope a little Paleo reading helped you get through the winter months!

Dr. Staffan Lindeberg was a pioneer of the Paleo diet as well as a wonderful colleague and friend. This tribute was written for The Paleo Diet website by his Ph.D. student Pedro Bastos. Dr. Lindeberg would have been 67 on February 22nd this year.
