Kendra & Rob Benson

Hi, we’re Kendra and Rob Benson and this is a brief history of who we are…

After 18 months away from, we’re back.

In late 2018 we were approached with an offer to sell our website. We took the offer in January of 2019 in order to help finance cardnl (a low-carb keto bakery, food production company, and grocery store). While we are still in operation of cardnl we’ve decided to buy back our beloved Our Paleo Life website.

We now have the commercial food prep knowledge (we didn’t have before) to bring you more, incredible paleo & low-carb recipes. We’re also VERY passionate about self sufficiency including homesteading. We’ve got a lot to share. We really hope you forgive us for being away, we promise to be here to answer questions and hopefully provide you with useful information.

Much love! – Kendra & Rob Benson
