PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Hawaiian Chicken January 4, 2019

We went to Hawaii on our honeymoon way back in 2012 and loved every minute of it.  The sun, the beach, the flowers, the food.  Anytime I can manifest that vacation in my “normal” life, I’m going to try.  While this isn’t a perfect replica of sun and beach, it’s good enough for me, for...

Whole30 Mango Salsa January 2, 2019 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

We aren’t huge fish eaters in our house, or at least not huge fish cookers.  I don’t like using my stove for stinky, messy cooking, and fish typically fits into both of those categories.  However, sometimes I’ll make an exception for something really tasty....

Whole30 Plantain Nachos January 1, 2019 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

I’m not sure about you, but we love nachos.  A gigantic pile of chips, meat, cheese and toppings always can hit the spot.  Unfortunately, if you’re trying to rest your system, nachos aren’t really the cleanest choice.  Here’s where plantain nachos come in handy....

Whole30 Watermelon Salad December 29, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

If you’re in need of a quick snack with some freshness, try this watermelon salad.  It’s a refreshing snack that reminds me of a nice warm day in the middle of winter.  The fat from the e.v.o.o. will help satisfy your tummy, and the...

Whole30 Mango + Jalapeno Chicken Wings December 22, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

These Whole30 chicken wings  are so easy to make and so tasty.  You can use the marinade on wings or chicken breasts, or just as a dipping sauce.  There’s a slight sweetness from the mango, and a little spice from the jalapeño.  These are...

Whole30 Chia Pudding December 19, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

This is a new one for me.  I’ve always loved the photographs of chia pudding, but I’ve never actually had any until I wanted to photograph it myself.  While the photo shows a drizzle of maple syrup (paleo friendly) the Whole30 version will omit...

Papaya Boat December 16, 2018 in PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30

If you’re not someone who gets excited about breakfast, this may be something to try.  It comes together quickly and tastes delicious.  It’s light and won’t leave you feeling full and heavy.  Papayas are full of antioxidants and can help to fight inflammation.  ...

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

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...

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...
