I was fortunate enough to spend this past Sunday having a picnic with my family. My Dad has a connection to a winery somewhat near his home in Ventura and we always seem to congregate there for any family gatherings. It’s a really beautiful and low-key place. You can bring all your own food and just hang out, eat, wine taste, and absorb some sun. Check out Old Creek Ranch Winery

Of course I brought some paleo fare to the cracker and cheese-fest. Beginning with some smoked salmon from my favorite fish market in Dana Point. Jon’s is the best! Followed by this delicious and refreshing Mango Blueberry Salsa. Finished off with some Peppermint Paleo Fudge (recipe to come) and some Chewy Paleo Brownies. My dad made the suggestion to spread the fudge on top of the brownies for a “frosting” like effect. I think I’ve mentioned 1 or 2 (or 12) times that my dad loves chocolate. That guy never misses an opportunity to amp up the cocoa intensity. Gotta love him.

Here’s a glimpse of the big guy… no really, he’s 6’8″. Undoubtedly fishing for chocolate fish.

Anyways… this post is not about chocolate. It’s about amazing summer fruit! This salsa is great on its own or with your favorite paleo “chip” (sweet potato, plantain, cucumbers, endive leaves… just to name a few). Or you could use it as a topping for some tacos. You could even eat it alongside your breakfast eggs. I don’t care HOW you eat it, the point is that you need to eat it. A super tasty experience awaits.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
