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 […]

16 Minute Power Tabata

Ohh baby….this one is a doozy. Tabata workouts are just so great but so awful at the same time. I think they’re pretty deceptive: 20 seconds of work? Doesn’t sound so bad. Eight times through though? Harder than you’d think!

This Tabata is set up a little differently. There are basically 4 different workouts. You […]

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 […]

*New* Full Body Workout

*Attention newsletter subscribers- the newsletter will go out now once a week (on Monday). I though once a week was better than every day. Not so spammy now.*

Time for a new workout!

This post will be short and sweet since it’s late here (it’s literally 9:15….is that late?) and I’m trying to get our […]

Paleo Banana Nut Porridge

4 days of Paleo! I can’t believe it. This has got to be a record for me. I’ve attempted Paleo before and usually after like, a day and a half I say F it….give me some cheese!! For some reason (so far) it doesn’t seem that bad? I have no clue why. Maybe because we […]

Homemade Whipped (coconut) Cream

I think I’ve already established that I love dessert. It’s funny how I realize my nightly dessert ritual is somewhat unhealthy, but I refuse to give it up. I must have something after dinner. The day just isn’t complete without that last tiny bit if sweetness to top it off.

Since my little Whole30/Paleo experiment […]

Whole30 Approved Mayonnaise

This title may lead you to believe that I am following the Whole30 program. I was going to say, yes, I am or at least my own version of it, but then that would mean I’m actually not following it. So, nope, no Whole30…yet. I am, however, challenging myself to follow a Paleo diet for […]

Article Zero Ice Cream Review: Round 2!

(For some reason pictures I took with an iPad show up sideways even though they’ve been edited. I will work on it!)


Dessert is my favorite. Any kind, I’m not picky. The thing about dessert is, as I’m sure you know, it’s not always the healthiest of meals. What a cruel world we live […]
