Continuous Brew Kombucha System

Continuous Brew Kombucha (Step-By-Step & How-To)

For many years now, our family has been drinking kombucha. From the days when, upon hearing the word “kombucha”, we were met with faces of utter confusion and questions like “kombu-what?!” to now, when we get replies of “Oh, what brand is your favorite” and “I make my own at home”. This centuries-old probiotic-rich drink […]

Protein Breakfast Cookies {grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free} by Our Paleo Life

The Perfect Paleo Powder Review + Protein Breakfast Cookies

Many of you may know that our son was the cause for us finally taking the plunge into paleo. We had toyed with the idea for some time, even attempting the change a year earlier, but it wasn’t until we realized our son needed a change in his diet in order to help him control […]

Instant Strawberry Yogurt {dairy-free, paleo}

Instant Strawberry “Yogurt” {dairy-free}

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not perfect, I’m sometimes not even an 80/20 paleo person. I will cave and eat some totally paleo-illegal foods. I don’t have allergies or severe effects from most foods, this is a choice that my family has made without being forced into due to medical reasons. That said, dairy […]

Dairy-Free Eggnog by Our Paleo Life

Dairy-Free Eggnog

Eggnog is a holiday season staple for most people, but for those of us with sensitivities to dairy, it’s not. There are plenty of dairy-free options in most grocery stores, but they are filled with thickeners like carrageenan which have other negative effects on the body. Why do that to yourself when making it it home is so easy and tastes better than anything store-bought?

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?}.

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

Elvis Smoothie

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 […]

Cranberry Lime Spritzer | Our Paleo Life

Non-Alcoholic Cranberry Lime Spritzer

‘Tis the season of dinner parties and cocktails, so if you’re in need of something that family and friends of all ages can drink, this is it. Yesterday, I posted a recipe for Homemade Cranberry Juice. After the first time I made it, I immediately wanted to make a fancy pants drink with it. I […]

Cranberry Juice | Our Paleo Life

Homemade Cranberry Juice

I bought some unsweetened cranberry juice recently to use in my Cranberry Relish for Thanksgiving. Just out of curiosity, I took a little sip. Holy sour! My face puckered up and stayed like that for a couple minutes. I was expecting tart, but that was severe. I really love cranberry juice, but don’t love that […]

Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa | Our Paleo Life

Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa

I don’t even know where the last 2 weeks have gone. Life has been a complete and total blur lately. Between recovering from an impromptu mini-vacation, undergoing a hair transformation (from black to light brown!), my eldest turning 8 (going on 28, geez), and spending nearly a full day in a dental chair with my […]

Peach Raspberry Milkshake | Our Paleo Life

Paleo Raspberry Peach Milkshake

I’m still swimming in peaches over here. Not literally, that would be gross and sticky and I’m a little too OCD for sticky messes. Luckily, the peaches are ripening just a few at a time, so at least I’m not bombarded by all of them all at once, which reminds me of this GIF I […]

Homemade Almond Milk | Our Paleo Life

Almond Milk

You know what everyone loves? Milk and cereal. You know what’s not so good for everyone? Milk and cereal. Quite a conundrum, right? Once we went paleo, cereal was erased from the menu. Milk was easier, since there are so many non-dairy milk substitutes. Almond and coconut milks are the regulars in our house, as […]

Patriotic Pops | Our Paleo Life

Patriotic Pops

I had this great idea to make beautiful layered popsicle for the 4th of July. I mean really, how hard could it be? Apparently, kind of hard. Because I failed. And then I realized it was because I was impatient. I have a serious problem with waiting for things, especially food. So when I attempted […]

Electrolyte Lemon-Limeade | Our Paleo Life

Electrolyte Lemon-Limeade

We drink water all the time. No more milk, no soda, no juice. Just water. And I like that. Water is good, refreshing, satisfying. But recently, for our Memorial Day Murph, I had the feeling that plain water just wouldn’t be enough for our bodies, we needed to replenish more than just water. I remembered […]

Rise and Shine Smoothie | Our Paleo Life

Rise and Shine Smoothie

Do you ever get in a smoothie rut? I get in a smoothie rut. I always make the same 2 smoothies. Always. Never any deviation. Even though I have made others before and know how good they taste, I just go with the defaults because they’re easy. Not that the others aren’t, but it’s almost […]

Pina Colada Smoothie | Our Paleo Life

Pina Colada Smoothie

Since I was never really a drinker, I would always get a virgin pina colada when given the opportunity. It’s got to be one of the best beverage concoctions ever! There is no better liquid combination than pineapple and coconut. It’s also the only flavor combo I would ever get at a smoothie shop. It’s […]
