Portobello Pizzas and Roasted Brussel Sprouts

portobello pizzas and brussel sprouts

OK I know I know, two pizzas recipes in a row.  But come on, pizza is delicious!! I made these little portobello pizzas with brussel sprouts last night for F and he couldn’t stop telling me how great they were.  Granted, the man is a sucker for any pizza, but I think he was right […]

An obvious way to adapt to Paleo is to take some of your favorite classics and try adapting them to a Paleo version.  This is a bold statement, but I’m pretty sure I have never met anyone who doesn’t like pizza.  Pizza is like the ultimate cheat food and comes in all shapes and sizes […]

You’re Not Too Busy – Paleo Microwave Breakfast

microwaved breakfast

Excuse #1 I hear from people that are trying to eat paleo – “I’m too busy to eat paleo. Do you know how much time it takes to do all that cooking/grocery shopping/meal planning?”  I’m planning to do a comprehensive blog post dedicated to answering this question and giving more tips on how to make […]

Product Spotlight: Trader Joe’s Southern Greens Mix


I’ve always thought myself to be a little bit Southern at heart – I’m super sweet (suuure), hospitable, I love plantation style houses and petticoats, I think the SEC is pretty corrupt but kind of badass, and obviously I’m a Republican.  So, it’s no wonder that I loved this little bag of magic that marrys […]

Yesterday, I had a rare day off work.  When I get a day off, one of my favorite things to do is look up a semi-complicated recipe, spend some luxurious time wandering around Whole Foods for the ingredients and set up shop cooking in F’s great kitchen. I was in the mood for some comfort […]

Product Spotlight: Sparkling Water and Spring Ice Cubes!

When I first started eating Paleo, one of the things that was the hardest to give up was Diet Pepsi.  I literally used to drink about 5-6 Diet Pepsi’s a day.  If I had died and during the autopsy they had cut open my stomach, the whole autopsy room would be covered in Diet Pepsi […]

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

So last night, despite being exhausted from CrossFit and a late cooking start time of 8:45PM, F and I teamed up to make some thai chicken lettuce wraps that turned out to be absolutely phenomenal and very filling.  I combined ideas from a lot of different thai recipes I like and put my own spin […]

Daylight Savings Time – Paleo Cereal

I’ve come to appreciate the glory of spring Daylight Savings Time even more in my adult life, now that I am typically in the office during the week until about 6PM.  As I’m sure many can attest to, there is nothing worse than leaving the office when it is already dark outside.  All of the […]
