Hey, remember when I said I was going to be on the radio? Well, I was! Here’s the Real Talk San Diego recording if you wanna listen into some kick-butt local AM broadcasting action.

In this post I will teach you how to upgrade a classic — chicken salad!

This Mediterranean-inspired version of chicken salad looks fancy and makes a fantastic meal for a warm summer day.

Most of the ingredients are pre-made which means you get to spend less time cooking and more time EATING!

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
