January 1st is historically the date that everyone throws away old habits and replaces them with new ones (most often those that have to do with diet, health, and exercise). So it should be of no surprise that my social feeds are filled with Whole30 posts and dinner pics. I love seeing so many of […]
Our family recently returned from a 10-day trip to Florida to visit family. I grew up in Florida, so I was used to the heat and humidity, but then I left and my body just cannot handle it anymore. While it was great seeing my family again, I was so glad to come back home […]
A little bit of spice, smokey bacon and creamy paleo ranch are tied together with the crisp and crunchy shredded lettuce. That’s right we put lettuce in our omelette.
The home stretch! Week 3 is almost over and now there are only 9 days left. Things are going good over here, and I haven’t caved yet, thank goodness. I know a lot of people go into a Whole30 wanting or expecting to lose weight (in addition to the more primary goal of of resetting […]
Egg salad is such an easy recipe to make, and a great one to have in your emergency arsenal. This one includes dill pickles and smoked paprika for a change of pace from the standard egg salad.
Dairy-free yogurt options at the store have all sorts of strange and potentially dangerous ingredients (carrageenan, anybody?), and make a true dairy-free yogurt at home is expensive and time-consuming. This instant “yogurt” uses only 7 basic ingredients and is ready in under 5 minutes.
Spice up your boring breakfast with flavorful eggs with sauteed peppers and onions, and a sprinkle of fresh chives. These are the easiest and tastiest scrambled eggs. Paired with restaurant-style crispy potatoes, you’ve got the best breakfast!
Halfway there!! How are you doing? Are things getting any easier for you? Surprisingly, week 2 was a bit harder for me than week 1. I struggled more with temptation, and really wanted to snack. A lot. It probably doesn’t help that I discovered how to make the best almond butter I’ve had (that isn’t […]
Asparagus, white potatoes, and bacon combine to make an easy and delicious side dish that’s paleo and Whole30, and is great for post-workout carbs.
Slowcooked sweet potatoes are the easiest way to prepare a lot of “baked” potatoes at one time without heating up your entire kitchen. This is a great way to have an easy source of carbs on hand right after a workout or for surprise dinner guests.
How do you make sure kids will eat all their broccoli and not feed it to the dog? Cook it in bacon, of course! This super simple side dish will get gobbled up in no time, guaranteed.
Hurray! You’ve made it past week 1 and are still here with me! Typically, the first week is always the most difficult (for me anyway), so getting over that hurdle is quite the accomplishment. The detox/carb flu stage can be rough, depending on how your diet was prior to starting the Whole30, so it may […]
Traditionally made with brown sugar, this paleo version relies on the natural sweetness of tomatoes and maybe a bit of coconut sugar if you prefer. Piled on top of paleo waffle, this is about as perfect a comfort food as you can get.
During the last week of December 2014, our family took a little vacay to Jackson Hole, WY. We’d never been and were hoping to hit up Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Well, 1 out of 2 isn’t so bad. Due to it being winter and all, the south entrance to Yellowstone was […]
