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, […]

Sauteed Red Cabbage

I don’t think I’ve ever bought cabbage before: green, red, whatever other colors. There are certain vegetables that I suppose I like, but I have zero experience with for whatever reason. Cabbage is one of those. Eggplant is too by the way. I like eggplant…but have never bought it. I guess it’s a little intimidating? […]

Baked Plantain Chips Recipe

I needed something crispy in my life. I saw on the list of “approved foods” for Whole30 that indeed, plantains were good to go. I love plantains. Why don’t I buy them more often? They always take me back to Miami and their amazing Cuban food.

I’ve played around with plantains before but every time […]

30 Day Paleo Challenge: Week 2

Week 2 is over! Thank God. I’m halfway done..the end is in sight….there is a light at the end of the carb-free tunnel. Here’s how I’ve been feeling:

Days 9-11:

The first few days of week 2 were okay. Sort of the “same old” meaning I was tempted by carbs, but held back. My energy levels […]

Homemade Apple Pie Energy Balls (Paleo)

First of all, forgive me if I ramble or straight up make no sense…my 6 month old has decided sleep is for suckers so I’m pretty darn tired right now. Okay….on to the balls!

I have a confession to make: I wanted to make Lara bars but they turned out too crumbly. One of […]

What are FODMAPS?

If you’re trying or have tried your hand at a Paleo style of eating, you’ve probably seen the word, or acronym, FODMAPS thrown around. I see them mentioned on blogs and also in Paleo cookbooks. That’s all well and good…but what exactly are they?

In case you’re interested (I’m not really) the acronym stands for […]

On-The-Go Paleo Snack Ideas

Snacks are fun. However, paleo snacks take a little more planning (it all comes back to plannning/food prep I swear!).  I am in the car a lot these days, so snacks are pretty darn important (for me and the toddler). Here are a couple paleo-centric snack ideas (if you have some, please leave them in […]

30 Day Paleo Challenge: Week 1

8 whole days following a Paleo diet….unbelievable! I haven’t talked much about it because honestly, I don’t want to “talk it up” then “fail” after like, 3 hours (its’ happened before so don’t put it past me), then have to report back to you guys with the disappointing news. I’m not making it a big […]

Paleo Asian Beef (or elk or turkey) Stir Fry

I’ve made this dish twice in the last week. That is how much I like it! I made it the first time with ground turkey and the second with elk but feel free to use whatever ground meat you have on hand!

The original recipe comes from NomNomPaleo’s blog (recipe here). I made a few […]
