RECIPIES My Favorite Things – Lemon Bars December 10, 2018

I love lemon.  Anything lemon flavored is going to make my list of favorite things for sure, but these are AMAZING.  For anyone who may not enjoy even the smidge of tartness, I’d take a pass on these.  They are creamy and tart with lemon flavor, but nice and sweet from the powdered sugar and...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Tomato and Cucumber Salad December 9, 2018

I’ve been really digging tomato and cucumber salad lately.  I’ve been having it as a snack in the mornings, or if I have it after the gym I’ll throw a half an avocado for extra calories.  I use Primal Kitchen’s Italian Dressing, which keeps it clean for a Whole30, but the base of the dressing...

PALEO, RECIPIES My Favorite Things – Paleo Chocolate Brownies December 8, 2018

The next favorite thing is also decadent and delicious, and yet again so simple.  These are the chewiest brownies I’ve ever had, and there’s way less guilt around eating them.  I use mine as brownie bites, but you can leave them larger if you don’t need mini versions.  I used 1/2 semi-sweet and 1/2 bitter...

PALEO, RECIPIES My Favorite Things – Dark Chocolate Pudding December 6, 2018

My first favorite thing is decadent and delicious, yet so simple, you can make it for a small dinner party, or as dessert bites for a larger gathering.  It’s also “versatile”, which means you can make it as dark or as sweet as you prefer.  The ingredients come together quickly, and the hardest part is...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 The Most Comforting Veggie Soup December 2, 2018

These winter months can be really stressful.  Cold, rain, sleet, snow, no sunshine, hip hip hooray!  During these long days, I just want to cuddle up and have a nice warm bowl of soup.  Unfortunately, my favorites aren’t always the quickest to make (think boiled chicken), and with all the added sugar in canned soup,...

LIFESTYLE Playing Catch-Up November 27, 2018

The holidays.  What a nice time of year for spending time with family and friends.  As most of us do, we spend our time celebrating with many overindulgences.  Lots to buy, lots to drink and definitely lots to eat.  If you’re like me, this pattern typically starts in October and goes through November and December....

HEALTH, PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Sonoma Chicken Salad November 26, 2018

Something I like to have on hand during a Whole30 is tuna salad.  It’s something I can whip up quickly and if you make enough, which is easy to do, I can get a few lunches out of it.  But as you can imagine, it can get old pretty fast if you ate tuna salad...

PALEO, RECIPIES Mango Chicken February 27, 2018

Yes, I know.  I’ve been slightly M.I.A. since the end of the January Whole30, but we’ve had a lot going on at home (I’ll be updating later) and with Whole30 clients, some things have taken a backseat, like the blog.  Please accept my sincere apologizes with a delicious recipe!  I made this during the Whole30,...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Super. Duper. Bowl. Wings. February 4, 2018

It’s Super Bowl Sunday!  Typically we’d be ordering pizza or wings from whichever restaurant would deliver to us.  Not this year!  Just coming off the January Whole30 (and still going), I wanted to have wings without the pounds of salt and sauce, with God knows what added.  There’s no reason to eat the added junk...

LIFESTYLE, RECIPIES What About Baby? February 2, 2018

What an adventure the last six months has been!  If you’ve read my coaching bio you’ll know that we struggled for 4 years to get pregnant.  We tried all kinds of “procedures”, and spent more money that I’d like to even tally up.  Had any of that worked, it, of course, would have been worth it,...
