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

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 the syrup.  I found the coconut milk and chia itself fulfilling...

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

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...

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...
