Caramel-Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs | Our Paleo Life

I have been meaning to post this for quite a while now, but time got away from me as usual, and here we are, a mere 3 days away from Easter. But I promise, these little treats come together so quick (well, there is some cooling time, but still…) you could make them Saturday night […]

Mini Chocolate Hazelnut Tart {paleo, vegan, raw} | Our Paleo Life

Life has been busy and I’ve taken a little hiatus from recipe making. We’ve been eating out a little too often and when I do cook dinner, I’ve been making some of our go-to favorites, like the Caveboy Casserole, Paleo Minestrone Soup, and Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder. They’re all super easy, everyone likes them, and […]

Elvis Smoothie (almond butter, banana, & chocolate) | Our Paleo Life

I used to be a smoothie-aholic. Is that a real thing? Doesn’t really matter, but I had a serious addiction. I would make smoothies for breakfast, smoothies after the gym, and smoothies before bed. Um, all in one day sometimes. Bad stuff. Sure, I would add spinach and think “wow, I’m being so healthy, drinking […]

Back Country Clusters | Our Paleo Life

I’m not a chocolatey person. I never have been. I would always take the vanilla ice cream or yellow cake or the fruity desserts over anything with chocolate. Maybe that was weird, but it’s just what I did. Actually, I say I’m not (currently) a chocolatey person, but I think I might be converting. I’ve […]

Bacon Balsamic Brussels Sprouts | Our Paleo Life

A friend recently told me that my children were “freakish” (in the nicest way possible of course). Why did she say this? Because I told her they like, actually they love, Brussels sprouts. Which I can see as making perfect sense, since I certainly would have never eaten them as a kid, and it’s not necessarily […]

Creamy Tomato Bisque | Our Paleo Life

I’ve never been a huge fan of tomatoes. I’ll eat them, they’re not terrible, but I would never eat tomato soup as a kid, or even as an adult, for that matter. Right after I had our 3rd baby, one of our doulas brought us some tomato soup for dinner. I didn’t want to be […]

Egg Drop Soup | Our Paleo Life

A couple weeks ago, I was feeling a bit under the weather. I developed a cough that just wouldn’t go away, which resulted in a sore throat and extremely painful abs (although I assume there is a lovely six-pack under there somewhere by now). The old me was super craving some chicken noodle soup. It’s […]

Paleo Waffles | Our Paleo Life

I’ve been dreaming of a new kitchen lately. Also, a new house to go with it. Literally, while I’m sleeping, I’m designing kitchens and cabinetry and lighting. It probably doesn’t help that we went house window-shopping, just for fun, over the weekend. Those model houses get me every time. I’ve gotten a little Pinterest-happy in […]

Tomatillo Guacamole Starter | Our Paleo Life

So, this is my new favorite guacamole. I know I already have a guac recipe, but this one is way different and much easier to make on the fly. It’s really a “starter” that you make up to 2 weeks in advance and then you just add avocados when you’re ready. I’ll be honest, my […]

Raw Fusion Energy Bars | Our Paleo Life

I’m a big fan of preparation. As if life in general isn’t busy enough, add 3 kids into the mix, 3 kids that are always hungry. Making sure they stay fed with real food that isn’t filled with garbage and chemicals, well, it can be difficult if you’re ill-prepared. Hence, I love preparation. I recently got […]
