Paleo Mug Cake *Recipe*

 

I have no idea who came up with the concept of a “mug cake” but I like them a lot. So, whoever you are, thank you. The mug cake is pretty great because it’s easy (few ingredients, easy clean up), it’s usually delicious (um, cake), but it’s small (portion control, baby!). All good things, […]

The Difference Between Cacao and Cocoa

Let’s flashback to 5 years ago: my husband and I were living in Cleveland and I was attempting the Paleo diet for the first time. I received some Paleo “granola” and one of the ingredients was cacao. I paid no attention to the spelling and assumed it was cocoa (ko-ko). My husband pronounced it ka-cow […]

Crunchy (and healthy) Tuna Salad *Recipe*

I love tuna salad. Or maybe I love mayo? Possibly both? I used to be the type who would order a tuna salad sandwich from wherever then get added mayonnaise to the already mayonnaise laden salad. It was obviously amazing. My husband on the other hand, is not a fan of mayo rich foods. […]

30 Day Paleo Challenge: Week 4

I made thirty days!! Can you believe it?! I honestly can’t ha I really mean that. I say that because I’ve tried multiple times before and let’s just say, did not last thirty days.

Week 4

Week four was okay. For some reason it was a little more challenging than I would have thought. I […]

Zoodles *Recipe*

Does this count as a recipe? Sure, why not. By the way, can you tell I’ve been playing with photo apps? I’ve literally downloaded three new ones… I can’t decide which are keepers and which aren’t. Anyway, to zoodles!

Zoodles. Otherwise known as: zucchini noodles.

These are so, so easy to make and as […]

Weekly Food Prep Ideas

I love when I’m motivated and prep food for the week. Or at least for a few days. There’s something so satisfying about opening the fridge and actually having food in there.

 

This week I prepped a few things I had made in the past but added some new foods to the rotation. […]

30 Day Paleo Challenge: Week 3 + Breastfeeding on Paleo

Sort of a long title..sorry about that. I thought about making the breastfeeding topic a separate post but I think it would essentially be a one liner.

Breastfeeding on Paleo

(First and foremost, talk to you doctor if you have any serious questions regarding your diet and breastfeeding).

My experience with cutting back on processed […]

Paleo Brownies *Recipe*

This title is a little misleading. I’m not sure you can call these brownies, but seriously, they taste just like them so why not? They’re basically a brownie flavored Lara bar. That’s probably more accurate. But let’s just call them brownies because that sounds more fun.

One of my good friends texted me her go-to […]

I’ll Take Butter With My Coffee, Please. (Bulletproof Coffee)

Have you heard of Bulletproof coffee? Oh…where do I begin?

I had heard of Bulletproof coffee a couple months back and shrugged it off as being a little over the top. The basic premise is adding 1-2 Tbsp butter and 1-2 Tbsp MCT oil to your coffee and blending it up. Yes, butter. No, […]

Dining Out: Paleo Style

As much as I try to prep food for our days out, some days it just doesn’t happen. Like I’ve said before, lack of prep= bad news. It’s ridiculous to just not eat because I don’t have food prepped. Eating is sort of crucial (or so I hear).

We live in a pretty rural community […]
