Asian Veggie Stir-Fry

Just toss is all in

As promised, here is the recipe for the Asian stir-fry I threw together to go with our Korean short ribs the other night.  The thing I love about stir-frys (stir-fries?) is that they are the PERFECT thing to throw together at the end of the week when you have a bunch of odds and ends […]

Korean Short Ribs

“I’m too busy to eat paleo.”  This is something I hear constantly, and my favorite responses to a statement like this are recipes I have that prove that ANYONE has time to eat paleo.  Yesterday I was in a MAJOR hurry, with about 15 minutes to prep dinner before heading to the gym knowing I […]

Grilled Artichokes with Lemon Garlic Dipping Sauce

artiechoke

I absolutely love artichokes, but let’s be honest, they can be a little bit of a pain to make.  I used to never buy them, because I had a preconcieved notion that they took an hour to boil, and you had to slather them in some sort of mayonnaise to make them flavorful afterwards. Well, […]

Smokey and Savory Roast

To me, there are fewer pleasures that prepping a meal early on a Saturday to be enjoyed at your leisure on a romantic Saturday night.  I don’t make a ton of roasts, so I was pretty excited to experiment with Everyday Paleo’s “Smokey Roast” recipe that I saw last week.  The result was a smokey, […]

Banana Blueberry Muffins

Yesterday I somehow managed to drag myself out of bed for the 6AM CrossFit class, meaning that when I got off work, I was a free woman.  I even took off from work a little bit early, and spent my free few hours doing what I find most relaxing — cooking.  I picked out a […]

Too Easy Tuna Salad

too tired

Today is definitely one of those days: I didn’t brush my hair when I woke up, I promptly spilled coffee all over my white sweater, everyone is after me at work, and I feel like I slept about 20 minutes last night. Needless to say, I was NOT in the mood to make lunch.  After […]

Product Spotlight: The Paleo Oils

oils

One of the staples in paleo cooking and eating is getting your healthy fats in with every meal.  People often point to the oils as a great source of healthy fat – olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, walnut oil, grapeseed oil, etc.  Paleo beginners often have never even heard of some of these products, and it can get a bit overwhelming […]

Borderline-Paleo Cupcakes

DANGER:  These cupcakes may accidentally cause you to eat the entire batch in 48 hours.  I’m just warning you.  It’s not normal how delicious these are.  Now that you’ve been properly prepared….. NEXT WARNING:  These cupcakes are definitley for the borderline paleo crew.  Strict paleo-ites won’t approve of these – I barely approved of the […]

Paleo Co-Op

My amazing CrossFit (not to brag and definitely NOT biased), CFSB, is full of people that follow the paleo diet to varying degrees.  There are your die-hard, paleo plus kids that don’t eat nightshades and have steak for breakfast.  There your 80/20 folks that love a good new paleo recipe and often accompany it with […]
