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…

What’s in my Grocery Basket?

Here are my shopping adventures from the past week! I went a bunch of places as usual. Wholesome Choice (WC) Trader Joe’s (TJ) Whole Foods (WF) Ralphs Amazon Rhythm Kale Chips. I wanted to compare these to the nacho kale chips at trader joes. Same exact thing. WC: $4.49 TJ: $3.99 WF: $7.99 (aka. highway…

What’s in My Grocery Basket?

Hey friends! Did you read my Resolutions post? You should! It’s a bit long, but (hopefully) inspirational as you map out your year of healthy eating, moving, and thinking. And let’s not forget healthy shopping! I haven’t done a grocery post in a while because my shopping has been all over the map since Thanksgiving/Christmas/Anniversary/New Years time….

What’s in my Grocery Basket?

This week’s basket was a tiny one… I decided to change-up my routine so I perused around Mother’s Market, an Orange County natural food lover’s favorite. It’s mostly my favorite because it’s the only place I’ve found around here that has Lulu’s Raw Maca Buttercups. INCREDIBLE (ever notice how that word has the word EDIBLE in it?……

An Inside Look at The Clean Plate’s Seasonal Cooking Class plus a Recipe!

I had the pleasure of teaching a Paleo and Seasonal Cooking Class to a gorgeous group of women. We talked a lot about autoimmunity, the importance of healthy fats, how to get the best value out of grocery shopping, ingredient alternatives, supplementation, “fad” diets, the “cholesterol myth”, how to make the holidays food healthy AND…

What’s in my Grocery Basket?

I went to four grocery stores today. FOUR. To be fair, for the past couple weeks, we’ve had a good reserve of staple foods in the house so I haven’t had to do a “big shop” for us in a while. We finally worked our way through most of our fresh produce and meat (except…

What’s in my Grocery Basket?

The first installment of “What’s in my Grocery Basket?” was a great success, so here we are again! Another week, another grocery trip. This week I will share my one day purchases from 3 different stores (yes THREE… I wasn’t lying last post…) I revisiting my new discovery, Wholesome Choice and my regulars Whole Foods…

Simple Green Smoothie

October is going to be a bit of a cleanse for me. I’m letting go of all sorts of indulgences. It’s not “detoxing” or because I want to take the joy out of life. Quite the opposite actually. This change is mostly out of a desire to simplify. Bring my meals back down to the…

Pesto Gazpacho

I’m moving!! Well, not permanently, but I’m still excited because I will be spending my fall/winter months here: This is San Clemente. It’s in Orange County, but it’s probably the least “OC” city in the county. If you don’t know what that means, watch a couple episodes of The OC, Real Housewives of Orange County,…

Citrus Baked Plantains

Just a quickie. Made this for my friends and they thought they were SOOOOO good that they “almost cried”. Well, weep on friends, weep on. Citrus Baked Plantains 3 ripe plantains (black skins) 1/4 c. coconut oil, melted 1 Tbsp. honey or maple syrup 2 large oranges, zested and juiced 2 limes, zested and juiced…
