Maple Sweet Potato Ice Cream

On my last post I talked about my efforts on eating less sugars and not eating past 9pm.  So far it’s going great; I’m eating pretty healthy and clean, making sure my meal timing is right and that my foods contain as little sugar as possible. However, I still get a random craving here and

Artichoke with Dipping Sauce

Kids often get asked “what’s your favorite color?” or “what’s your favorite food?” Well, as a child when I was asked what my favorite food was, I responded with an innocent voice: “artichokes”. No joke. It was hands down my favorite thing to eat; in my mind it was ten times better than pizza, hamburgers,

Pesto Tilapia

For the last 2 weeks I’ve been feeling fantastic…and of course, food has everything to do with it. Food always has everything to do with it. You know the saying “you are what you eat”? Well, I think its 100% accurate; not only physically, but mentally as well. If you eat right not only do

Summer Squash Wedges

I’ve been active on various social channels and I’ve found a common need amongst various Paleo followers: the need for more easy-to-make side dish recipes. People want something easy, something that is not a salad, and something that requires few ingredients yet still remains delicious and exciting. I would like to dedicate this post to

Bacon Pesto Stuffed Burgers

I’ve been wanting to prepare stuffed burgers for a while now. I took a long time because I knew that if I was going to stuff my beef, I needed to stuff it with something worthwhile. I wanted to use two stuffing ingredients, ones that would compliment each other and when united, make our taste

Tilapia. The protein of choice of bodybuilders and fitness models when preparing for a show or photo shoot. Why, you may ask? Well it’s got no carbs, no sugar, very little fat and lots of good lean protein. Tilapia’s main nutritional value is protein. One serving (4-oz fillet) provides half of the recommended (daily minimum)

Apple and Curry Chicken Crockpot

About time I cooked something in the crockpot to share with you guys! I usually use the crockpot a lot in the wintertime, making flavorful recipes that seem to warm up the house with wonderful smells. Winters in Idaho are tough, and believe me when I say ANY little positive thing counts. If it wasn’t

Bacon Guacamole

At my household we eat guacamole like it’s going out of style, having it two to three times a week. This is a lot of guacamole, considering our portion consists of a full Molcajete (shared between two people). Usually my husband ends up eating a little more than me, and that right there helps me feel

Roasted Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

Rosemary. What a lovely little piece of heaven. It’s one of my favorite herbs.  Did you know that in Latin “Rosemary” means the “dew of the sea”? Apparently rosemary, in various locations, needs no water other than the humidity carried by the sea breeze to survive. How pretty is that? I knew rosemary was romantic.

Want to enjoy some hearty paleo juice? I’ve been craving beets lately. A whole lot. There is something about their redness and their composition that attracts me so much to them. If my body wants beets, it must mean it needs beets….right? Here are a few fun facts on beets: Beets have sodium, magnesium, calcium,

How-To: Make Homemade Paleo Coconut Butter

All my past butter recipes have been nut butters. I think its time we switch it up a notch, wouldn’t you agree? As you have been able to tell by two of my most recent recipes, Paleo Chocolate Cake and Paleo Coconut Bread, I am sort of addicted to coconut. Yes, I admit it…its true.

Today my husband turns twenty-seven years old. Twenty-seven! What a great number. I love that age. An age where maturity has settled, possibilities are endless and there is still hope for big dreams. My husband is a dreamer, but also a doer. He is an amazing entrepreneur who has 10 business models in his head

For no particular reason, I have been making a lot of different types of nut butters lately! I feel like my refrigerator has become a nut-butter jar collector. Probably housing seven different nut-butter jars. No joke; it’s straight up crazy. That’s a lot for our family of two, especially since my husband solely consumes a

Egg Salad

Planning or attending social events has been a bit of a challenge for me since I started Paleo. Wait, no. Let me re-phrase. It’s been a bit of an adjustment. Usually one just eats whatever is provided at a party; foods that smell good or look pretty. One usually doesn’t really think of the ingredients

Paleo Rosemary Bread

I think it’s been 11 months since I’ve had a sandwich. Paleo says no grains, so I stay away from all bread. Except for my Paleo banana bread and Paleo muffins, of course. I just haven’t had the salty-tasting bread…you know, the normal kind. That’s pretty insane if you ask me. 11 months without having a
