Guacamole Monday

I’ve never made guacamole. I know  this breaks some rules in the paleo/keto world, but that leads me up to the next true confession. I don’t love avocado. I don’t even like them. There is a weird texture thing as soon as I taste it. It is a weird thing that I just haven’t been …

Keto and Paleo

Eating Paleo and going through a few rounds of Whole 30 for a few years have firmly slapped my behind in the “believer” seat. I have had my best fat loss and smallest-sized clothing while on Paleo and have had consecutive months when I couldn’t be any happier in my own skin. I love the …

Wondering About Wellness

As part of our school employee health program, we have to have a Wellness Screening every year. I wasn’t thrilled about this when it first started, but it’s a minor screening and it’s things I need to know every year. Every year, I get a pretty darn good result. Glucose is within range, good cholesterol …

Kettle and Fire Bone Broth

Nothing cures a cold better than bone broth, and with winter right around the corner, this is the best time to share this beef bone broth recipe. It’s no secret that I LOVE bone broth and now that I’m in an RV, I can’t exactly cook it all day on the stove as I have …

What I’m eating lately

Not sugar. That’s what I’m eating. And let me just say, I’m not thrilled. Sugar is my kryptonite. This is why Whole30 works so well for me because within a few days of cutting sugar, my body literally deflates. My face stops looking so puffy, my hands are normal, and my stomach loses a lot …

Meal Planning

I mentioned earlier that I’m ditching sugar again…sigh..again, and getting back on the Paleo train, which is the plan that works great for me when I stick to it. My glucose levels are low, my energy is high, my workouts are awesome, and I can fit in my pants. So here we go. This time …

Taco Wednesday

This is a little smidge of my mood at 5pm on a Wednesday afternoon. It’s been a LONG week and it’s only been 3 days. I’m still trying to shake off a sinus infection, my running is more waddle/jogging than sprinting, and I’m hungry. Date night at Taco Mama was a nice ray of sunshine …

All Good Things….

Mornings are always better with java. And with an early-morning run to shake out the angst and stress of the last days of school. Well, the furniture is up and pushed away from the middle. This is the last day of school for the kids. I can honestly say, this year has been the best …

Hello Sprouts!

Here in Tuscaloosa, we are patiently waiting for our first foodie grocery store like Whole Foods or Trader Joes. We have to travel to Birmingham for Whole Foods or Atlanta for Trader Joes. I have been hearing about a store called Sprouts but I am unfamiliar with what exactly it is. The official name is …

Paleo Quick Guide

  The world of Paleo is exploding with new websites, books, podcasts, events, and “experts”. One quick glance at an Amazon bestseller list reveals the popularity of Paleo and that is a good thing, in my opinion. However the world of Paleo is ever-evolving with the lines no longer black and white, but a little …

Market Finds

Our local River Market in Tuscaloosa is open all year long which means fresh eggs from Miss Emily, local beef and pork, winter vegetables from the Druid City Project, FRESH CITRUS, and hothouse tomatoes all year long. It doesn’t get much better than that. While waiting for the spring markets and summer harvest, I can …

Make It Paleo II review

A couple of weeks ago, Make It Paleo II arrived on my step and I frantically tore into the box. I had been waiting for this one. I have the orginal Make It Paleo and used it as one of my standard “learn to eat Paleo” cookbooks. After buying Gather, which is a beautiful display …
