Paleo Balsamic Ketchup {by Our Paleo Life}

Paleo Balsamic Ketchup

One day, many months ago, as our family was shopping for an upcoming camping trip, we stumbled across a bottle of Heinz ketchup. But this was no ordinary ketchup, it was balsamic vinegar ketchup. Now, full-disclosure here, we totally bought it because balsamic vinegar. Also, it was all in the name of science, er, recipe […]

Cherry Almond Crisp by Merit + Fork

Cherry Almond Crisp {by Merit + Fork}

CHERRIES!!! My absolute favorite fruit since as far back as I can remember. My dad was a cherry fanatic, so, in turn, my brother & I have always loved all things cherry. I could eat fresh cherries all day, but, since the window of opportunity for fresh cherries is so small, I always stock up on frozen ones. Like… at least 8-10 bags are in my freezer at any given time.

The Dark Side of Nuts by Nikki Jencen {for Our Paleo Life}

The Dark Side of Nuts {Guest Post}

When I first went Paleo, I went a bit heavy on the nuts. I was eating trail mix, making “Paleo” approved desserts with assorted raw nuts, I was eating cashew “cheese”, nut butters, and I was drinking almond milk as my “milk” substitute. Then I felt something wasn’t right, instead of losing weight, I was gaining weight, plus my hair was falling out, I was cold all the time, I was experiencing muscle weakness and I was fatigued in the morning and totally drained by 7pm.

Brewed Butter Chocolate {A Primal Coffee Alternative} by Our Paleo Life

Brewed Butter Chocolate {primal}

For personal reasons, we don’t drink coffee, though we do enjoy the occasional mug of herbal tea (mmm, peppermint is our favorite). I kept hearing about butter coffee, but since coffee’s not my thing, I never tried it, even though I love me some butter. I’m also not wild about large amounts of caffeine, so when I heard about brewing chocolate, which is naturally low in caffeine, I perked up a bit {see what I did there?}.

White Fish with Peach Salsa Sauce

White Fish in Peach Salsa Sauce {by The Primal Desire}

Ever have one of those days? You know the one where even opening your eyes in the morning is a struggle?

You get soap in your eyes, and forget to shave the other leg? Traffic on the way to work is especially brutal and you hit every stop light. You forget your lunch at home, and the internet is down at work. Everything is a battle and a crisis. One of those days that you wish you could just stay in bed? Or hide under your desk and eat delicious paleo treats (cookies or brownies).

White Chocolate Almond Butter

Sometimes, a thought pops into my head and I must make it happen immediately. However, if I don’t have the ingredients to make that certain inspired recipe come to life, it puts me in a funk. Naturally, the only solution is to send the husband to the store to find those ingredients for me. Case […]

Vegetarian Paleo {Guest Post by Nikki Jense for Our Paleo Life}

Vegetarian Paleo?

It’s an anomaly being Vegetarian and Paleo at the same time. Or is it? There are people all over the world who recognize the importance of animal preservation. Animals globally are being saved by loving Vegetarians and Vegans every day. While the animals are thanking you for their salvage, are you sacrificing your own health […]

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies {by Merit + Fork}

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies… where do I even begin?! Any paleo foodie, whether you’ve been of the paleo persuasion for a few months or several years, has sought out some sort of chocolate chip cookie recipe. Like most people, you’ve probably tried a handful of paleo cookie recipes yourself… or maybe you haven’t! (I simply can’t imagine that scenario. A cookie-less life is no life in my eyes.) Myself? I’ve tried at least 100 paleo cookie variations.

Beefy Ratatouille | Our Paleo Life

Beefy Ratatouille

I have no idea where this summer is going. Things started off so smooth and fun, then our camper broke (I know!), we got a large project for work that stresses me out every now and then, family visited, my kitchen has been in a perpetual state of yuck, and I’ve been working on a […]

{Guest Post} Can White Rice Be Paleo? | Our Paleo Life

Can White Rice Be Paleo?

Can white rice be Paleo? What’s the first answer that pops into your head? No, of course not. When we describe the essence of what Paleolithic eating is we should automatically think avoid all grains, sugar, legumes, dairy, etc. But what is rice? Is rice a grain or a starch? Before I answer that let’s explore the history of rice, different types of rice, and why it may be able to fit into a Paleo diet.

Cuisinart CastLite Cookware {Product Review} by Our Paleo Life

{Product Review & Giveaway} Cuisinart CastLite Cookware

When we got married 11 years ago, we received a cookware set that was coated in Teflon. I was all kinds of excited because I assumed that was required in order to not have food stick to the pan. After a few years, I noticed more and more flakes of black in our food. I […]

MangoBerry Popsicle | Our Paleo Life

MangoBerry Popsicles

My kids often remind me when I’m slacking on anything that affects them. Like the 3,000 times a day that they are literally starving and may wilt away to nothing. Or the time I promised them I would maybe possibly think about taking them to the toy store. Or that time they asked for a […]
