BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

Does anyone remember “tearing” lettuce for salads growing up? It had to be one of the most frequent jobs passed on to us children while mom was making dinner. Right up there with shredding cheese and opening cans. I honestly can’t think of a job more inefficient than the tearing of lettuce. First of all,…

The Weight Series – Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

Finally! The third installment of The Weight Series is here! I figured it was fitting to post this today because this week is National Eating Disorder Week. What an incredible struggle this is for so many people out there. Let’s do all we can to bring awareness to these debilitating conditions. Like me, you don’t have…

What I Ate Wednesday

I thought I’d revive the ol’ “what I ate” post today. Whenever I talk to anyone about healthy eating, nutrition, nourishment, ancestral health, etc, I inevitably get the question, “So what do you eat?” Here’s an answer. I usually eat different stuff everyday. I’m not a food routine kind of person. I eat at different hours…

Pizza Egg Cups

Egg Cups are the best. Very little time investment, maximum return. Kids love ’em, busy professionals love ’em, athletes love ’em. Here’s a twist on the classic egg cup that’s sure to get the whole family involved. Any recipe where each person gets to choose “toppings” is always a great way to introduce young kids…

Crispy Sweet Potato Ribbons

I’m just gonna say it right off the bat… This is genius. From past posts, you could probably gather that I like making noodles out of vegetables. I’ve actually even made yam noodles before, but it just dawned on me the other day to put them in the oven! Kind of like hash browns, but more…

Bacon and Jalapeño Omlette

Other names suggested were: 1. The Jalap-acon Omlette 2. The Jalap-acon-tro Omlette They seemed a little too gimmicky for me, so I stuck with the original food spellings (plus I like using the ñ in Jalapeño). Enjoy this as a fancier-than-normal beginning to your day, or cook up a bunch for your weekend brunch! It’s not…

The Weight Series – Resolutions

The New Year means New Years Resolutions. Everyone’s chanting, “New Year, New You!” You’ve likely read posts online about making this year “Your Best Year Yet!” Or maybe you’ve read a recent magazine article showing you “How to Stick to your New Year’s Resolutions“. You may have written them in a journal, or posted them on Facebook, or maybe…

Brussels and Bacon Hash

It’s no secret that everyone loves bacon. But brussels sprouts? File that relationship under “It’s Complicated”. Brussels have a lot of obstacles in making onto the mainstream dinner table. First of all, my parent’s generation is (rightfully) scarred from their parents deciding that boiling was the best cooking method. Um, Ew. Secondly, the smell of cooking brussels…

Coffee Fudge

Lately I’ve been experimenting with my coffee “additions”. Unfortunately, I’ve grown a bit weary if my incredibly popular Coconut Coffee Creamer. I have also failed to jump on the “bulletproof” bandwagon because of my intolerance to dairy (including ghee). Speaking of bulletproof, I have some friends in the crossfit world who have recently “kickstarted” an…

Seedy Kale Salad

There’s no denying it… even if you have the best intentions and the most paleo-perfect holiday menu, you will likely eat too much on Thursday. This is a little inspiration for a healthy, light meal for your post-holiday feast fest. Seedy Kale Salad 1 bag baby kale (if using mature kale, de-stem and chop, massage…
