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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...
