Hi, I’m George. I served in the United States Marine Corp for many years, which brought its share of ups and downs to not only my life and emotions, but also my weight and wellness. Once I returned to California after serving in Afghanistan in 2011, I started getting serious about Paleo and teaching myself how to cook. What started as a simple place to post recipes for friends, turned into an award-winning food blog that I am so proud of!
In the spring of 2013 I was finally medically separated from the Marine Corps. I was so happy to be able to pursue blogging full-time in order to get healthy, whole-food, DELICIOUS recipes to those who want them! I wanted to help change as many lives for the better through Paleo, and my blog. Paleo has helped me in more ways than I can count. I am finally at a strong and healthy weight, I LOVE the food I eat (I mean c’mon, I eat all the bacon and coconut butter I want!), I am stronger, faster, and look better than I ever have. Paleo has helped me battle my eating disorder, and has given me the most supportive and loving community I could ever ask for.
What started as a simple food blog has developed into so much more. I began to discover that food is only the beginning. So many people see food as either a foundation or a solution, but the reality is the building blocks of healthy eating only work when you have a healthy mindset and a workable fitness routine. Cooking is only the beginning, but it will jumpstart all of your plans and dreams that will turn you into the “wonder person” you always knew you could be. Civilized Caveman brings together food, fitness, and wellness in a way that maximizes each of those to create the lifelong and lasting results you’ve been aiming for. Civilized Caveman means that each person surpasses their full potential by taking all the tools we have and applying them in ways that serve you the most.
Some of my favorite food, fitness, and wellness tools and resources I use include:

The Civilized Caveman Lifestyle Community is the heartbeat of every person who chooses to make Civilized Caveman a regular part of their lives. As a member of the Civilized Caveman Community, each person commits to showing up regularly in their own lives to support and encourage everyone we come across. While some absence may occur due to family events or vacation, they readily return to offer love and kindness to other Caveman members knowing that PROLONGED ABSENCE brings complacency and stagnation in their own journey. By giving, Civilized Caveman open themselves up to RECEIVE the same love from others within the Caveman audience. ACCOUNTABILITY is the hallmark of Civilized Caveman. Accountability only works when each person SHOWS UP and GIVES as well as receives.
