About Stephanie Paris

TL;DR version: I am a student of nutritional biochemistry and mother of two boys. Cultivating inner joy and igniting inspiration. If you find value in the videos I make, in the stories of personal struggle and triumph that I share, in the healthy, real food recipes I create, please consider becoming a patron!

Hi Everyone! My name is Stephanie Paris. I’m a single mom of two amazing boys, and am currently a student at Clackamas Community College. My interest is nutritional biochemistry and my plan is to transfer to Portland State University to major in Biochemistry, then attend grad school at the National University of Natural Medicine for a masters in Nutrition.

My long term career goals include working in the healthcare industry to improve the health of the general population. I am specifically interested in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of cancer and chronic disease, and would love to do research in the areas of ketogenic nutrition, mitochondrial metabolism, and toxicity.

Years ago I started a blog called Primal Praxis, as well as a YouTube channel to document my personal health and wellness journey. Sharing myself with others helps me to process my own experiences, and while doing so I am able to provide support and inspiration to others going through similar things. Part of the content I produce includes creating original recipes. I love preparing healthy foods that taste amazing, and it feels so good to share my creations so that those I reach may too experience the simple pleasure of nourishing foods.

I have chosen to join patreon because of the financial challenges with which I am faced as a single mother attending school full time in a difficult science & research based degree program. I currently have a 4.0 GPA after two years in the program, and am proud of the work I have been able to accomplish. One of the most rewarding things about being a mother attending college is that I get to sit at our dining room table with my boys doing our homework together. My 14-year-old son has already expressed excitement about attending college. I feel that the example I am setting for my children is very powerful. They see how hard I work, and that school can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

The only thing standing in my way is the financial means to finish school. We’re a “paycheck to paycheck” family in the most literal sense. If you find value in the videos I make, in the stories of personal struggle and triumph that I share, in the healthy, real food recipes I create, please consider becoming a patron. I appreciate every dollar I receive, so no matter what amount you give, it really does make a difference for me and my family.

What is Primal Praxis? The primal or paleo lifestyle is based on the theory that we best thrive when eating, exercising, sleeping, socializing, and living as close to the way our paleolithic ancestors did, considering that the modern human genome evolved from millions of years of living a hunter-gatherer way of life. Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, practiced, embodied, or realized. This is my Primal Praxis.
