Eat the Rainbow Summer Salad

The days are so hot out there, that all I want to do is drink lots of water and eat foods that are the opposite of hot. Soups, baked potatoes and casseroles are out for a while,

Cherry Walnut Summer Salad

When the days get longer and hotter, and one starts sweating seconds after stepping outside, one knows summer is RIGHT around the corner. Everyone loves summer…especially this Ecuadorian girl right here! I am used to lots of direct sunlight and humidity, which means I am totally okay with tan lines and perspiration. In fact, I crave both bad

Paleo Crockpot Turkey and Pumpkin Chili

Autumn. What a wonderful way to follow summer. Summer’s no doubt my favorite time of the year. What’s not to love? People out and about enjoying long walks, going to the park, eating ice cream, going swimming, eating out at restaurants with patio seating, wearing cute little shorts and dresses. Goodness, it doesn’t get any

My mother has a recipe for a killer non-Paleo carrot cake. She’ll bake it for most social gatherings she goes to, taking it as a gift (she is so sweet and generous – love you, mom). That carrot cake is her signature dessert. Everyone always raves about it.  People will have second servings every time,

Root Roast

Who doesn’t like to switch their vegetables up? I know I do! It gets pretty old to eat the same thing…like just eating carrots, or just eating cherry tomatoes, or just eating kale. You’ve got to give your body a bit of everything, you know? Different ingredients provide different minerals and vitamins, so it’s always

I’ve been really into poultry lately, eating tons of chicken and turkey. I like to prepare my chicken in a very simple way, grilled or broiled…this works great for me, since I can then add grilled chicken to salads, mix and match it with various side dishes, and sometimes, just eat it by itself as a
