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

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

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

Today was my running-errands day. Picked up clothes from the dry-cleaner, deposited a check, sent out mail and stopped at the grocery store for some exciting Paleo ingredients (yay!). Our Boise Co-Op is amazing. It literally has every single “weird” and unheard-of ingredient. It is my favorite place to shop at by far! I love

Beef contains selenium, which is needed to support antioxidants that reduce various inflammatory conditions. Now isn’t that interesting?

Don’t eat in a rush! It may help you make that next appointment or commitment, but it can cost you in the long run. Researchers at the University of Rhode Island tested this by instructing their participants to eat a large plate of pasta quickly. Those who did, consumed 646 calories in nine minutes! Those

Coconut Almond Chicken Patties

Coconut. What a delicious little gift from nature. I LOVE coconut. I think it’s because I grew up with fresh coconut. In Ecuador, we could find fresh coconut at any small market, grocery store and fruit stand. Its funny, sometimes coconut seemed to find us. While vacationing at the beach, you could see natives pushing

Following a twelve-week trainer program and having to stick to a strict diet can be very challenging. Eating six to seven times a day is…well…difficult. Not because one has to eat a lot of food (I love to eat…the more the better) or because cooking may seem like a chore (I love cooking, it relaxes

Spicy Bison Burgers

Bison. First time trying it ever. I was a bit intimidated by the name, not gonna lie. We never had bison at our dinner table in Ecuador. I probably never even knew people ate this animal now a days! I was completely familiar with chicken, eggs, pork, beef, and fish…not bison. A couple of months

I just ordered an all Egg White Protein Powder from bodybuilding.com. I’ve ordered a bunch of stuff from their site before (including various types of protein), just never an all Egg White protein powder. It felt like Christmas, yet again, when I received their lovely Bodybuilding.com white box in the mail! I really haven’t heard

Salmon Parsley Patties

Living in Boise Idaho I am limited to getting my hands on good fresh fish. Yes, we do get fresh river fish, but it sort of isn’t the same. I usually just end up guying frozen fish or canned fish (tuna and salmon). Don’t get me wrong, I like having these options too (sometimes you

Eggs just go well with mornings. Don’t you think? It is everyone’s preferred source of morning protein. Well almost everyone…there are some strange people out there that don’t like eggs…funny, right?! If you’re one of these people…don’t take it personal. Maybe you’ll start liking eggs once you try this recipe. Eating eggs every morning or

Lately I’ve been really fond of protein. I think it’s because I highly appreciate all the healthy fats different meats have offered me on the last couple of weeks. When you’re working out ever day (high intensity workouts), working on marketing projects, and cleaning and cooking a bunch, you get energy drained. Carbohydrates are our

Our family has a very planned out monthly budget. My husband and I have thought of all the expenses we could possibly have in a month, gave them a dollar value, and added them to our Mint.com account to keep us accountable and in check. It’s good to budget. It saves you from going shopping crazy
