Homemade Sauerkraut

I made sauerkraut! And I think I spelled it right, right?

Okay, so a couple weeks back I bought a fermentation book for beginners. I think I’ve mentinoned this before, but I’ve been listening to way too many health and fitness podcasts (lots are Paleo) and fermented foods come up quite a bit. After doing […]

Homemade Cashew Milk *Recipe*

So, I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on the blog yet, which is pretty incredible, but I got a Vitamix!! It was a Mother’s Day present. Pretty sweet! They are as good as they say by the way.

 

I’ve made several smoothies with the Vitamix so far and it did not disappoint. That […]

Paleo Strawberry Crumble (or bars) *Recipe*

This recipe has been toying with my emotions the past 24 hours. My intention was to make strawberry bars, but immediately after taking this out of the oven, I assumed bars were a no-go.

 

They seemed way too gooey so I thought they would just fall apart and, well, crumble. So, needless to […]

Lightened Up Chicken Salad *Recipe*

My lunches are normally really boring. I always cross my fingers that I have enough leftovers and I typically don’t. It’s very sad. Is anyone else really lazy at lunch time or just not creative? I try to have at least some turkey around so I can work with that but usually it’s eggs, eggs, […]

Minty Greens Earth Day Shake

First and foremost, I wanted to announce some exciting news with you guys: I am now an ambassador for Premier Protein! I’m so excited to be working with this company because I love their products. They make tasty protein shakes, smoothies, protein bars, and protein fiber bars. My favorites are their shakes and fiber bars…major […]

Healthy Shopping at Costco

I am loving Costco more and more these days. They have an incredible selection of healthy foods and I swear it just keeps getting better. They just keep carrying more and more organic foods and gluten free if that’s what you’re looking for.

First and foremost, I think each location varies slightly so keep that […]

Avocado Pudding with Chocolate Coconut Whipped Cream *Recipe*

This dessert is so decadent and just majorly hits the spot. If you haven’t heard of avocado being used as a pudding it probably sounds gross. I swear it works though.

Avocado’s provide such a great, creamy consistency and as long as you add a sweetener (and cocoa to disguise the green color), you’d […]

(Almost) Paleo Banana Superfood Muffins *Recipe* PLUS Buff Bake Review

Honey, I baked! I swear I would bake all the time if someone else in my house would help me eat the finished product. They might actually. Maybe I just eat everything too fast so no one else stands a chance. It’s certainly possible.

Anyway, I noticed I was starting to accumulate quite the […]

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 […]
