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...

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

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...

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

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...

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

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...

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

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,...

Mango Chicken February 27, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES

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...

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

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...

Paleo “Ice Cream” January 27, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES

We love ice cream.  Who doesn’t?  The crappy thing is, is that within the hour, my husband and I, both, start to feel stuffy after eating it.  Like we’ve got a full on head cold, stuffy.  While we don’t necessarily have “intolerances” to dairy,...

Whole Foods Cabbage Crunch Copy Cat January 9, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

I love Whole Foods.  I the brands that they carry, the organic fruits and veggies, their butcher counter and the nice butcher men and women who have to deal with me picking meat for 45 minutes, and I especially love their new macaron fridge...

Pantry Staples for a Whole30 December 20, 2017 in HEALTH, PALEO, WHOLE30

With the January Whole30 coming up, one of the most important ways to be successful is to plan.  While the degree of planning changes from person to person, there is some version of planning that should happen.  You’ll probably figure out that your planning...
