These homemade larabars require very few ingredients. Don’t pay a buck for a bar when you can make it fresh at home in any flavor combination you want.
Switching up breakfast with something like a dairy free quiche option is sometimes exactly what is needed (to help keep you motivated).
The end of Daylight Savings has had some unexpected consequences around here. No, not a disruption of kids’ schedules, or mild depression over the fact that it looks like midnight at 5pm (ok, maybe a little bit of that). The real problem is with the chickens. This will be our second winter as chicken parents, […]
I’ve been contemplating a pancake recipe for quite a while now. We’ve been cheating on paleo with a gluten-free recipe that’s made with rice flour, so it’s still gluten-free, just not strict paleo. I knew that we needed pancakes made with my all-time favorite Otto’s Naturals cassava flour instead, so I got to work. But, […]
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 […]
Good morning, sunshines! Or do you usually just mutter “ugh, morning”. I’m usually more of the latter, a night-owl, if you will. Always have been, probably always will be. I always say “I’m going to go to bed at 10pm and wake up with the sun” and then midnight rolls around and I give up. […]
I can’t even begin to tell you how spoiled I am, but I’ll try anyway. I grew up in Florida, 27 years there. It’s hot, humid. Summer is the main season, the other 3 are just a fleeting thought. But that’s all I knew for 27 years. Then my husband ripped me from my hot, […]
Can you believe it’s already the middle of January? Did you do a 21 day sugar detox, Whole 30, or paleo challenge to start off your year? Raj and I did, 30 days strict paleo. I find the orthodox paleo far less restrictive than a 21 day sugar detox or AIP (Autoimmune protocol) Diet. If […]
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 […]
Do you ever get completely and utterly bored with breakfast? I do. All the time. It’s so easy to just throw some eggs in a skillet and scramble them, that I often get in a breakfast rut due to the rush of getting the kids ready for school every morning. But spicing things up a […]
I remember, as a kid, I hated asparagus. I could not for the life of me understand why my mom liked it so much. She was adamant that you needed to get the skinny asparagus for it to taste good, but I didn’t care, I just wasn’t having it. The funny thing is that although […]
Oh man, this past week has made me extremely aware (more than usual, somehow) that food prep is so incredibly important on a Whole30. I mean, I always knew this, I practice it often, but something about this past week has just hammered it home. Now that the holidays are over, traveling has come to […]
You know what’s the best? Healthy treats. I’m not talking about healthier versions of treats, but actually food that is indulgent and healthy. Yes, they do exist. This chia pudding is one such example. Just check out the ingredients: Not an added sweetener in sight, just the sweetness from the ripe bananas Healthy fats from […]
You know what just hit us? The heat. The oppressive 100-degree heat. It’s been raining and hailing out here in Colorado every afternoon like clockwork, but now the heat has arrived. This is going to be one of those weeks where I just sit inside, and hopefully work on more of those recipes that I […]
