Avocado Lime Egg Salad

I’m really excited because I’m about to go get some testing done at a local integrative facility called Movement RX. Back in January, I attended their Grand Opening party and actually WON THE RAFFLE! The prize? Some metabolic testing 😉 I’m not one to usually measure stuff like that. Since I have some weird food/body…

Jalapeño Chimichurri Sauce

If you add one recipe to your culinary arsenal this summer, it should be this sauce. I’m not even kidding. The light and fresh herbs plus a mildly spicy jalapeño kick and a wallop of salty garlic… it’s literally the perfect companion for EVERYTHING! Fish. Yes. Shredded Pork. Yes. Grilled Steak. Yes. Eggs and Bacon. Yes….

Cilantro Pesto Shrimp with Rainbow Noodles

Pasta from carrots?! Right now, Trader Joe’s has Organic Rainbow Carrots, which make for a beautiful Paleo pasta dish! Using a vegetable peeler, make pasta strands with the carrots. Throw the “noodles” into a skillet with a little oil over medium heat and lightly sauté until barely wilted (you don’t want to over cook or…

Easy Ceviche

Ceviche is a great paleo meal. That’s why I now have 3 versions of it on my blog. (see here and here) Yesterday, my man took me out for a little birthday dinner and we had some ceviche at a Spanish tapas restaurant in Pasadena. The ceviche was so good that I wanted it again….

Curried Ginger Beef Stuffed Acorn Squash

This meal was the result of a couple minutes of planning.  I’m not saying that to brag or anything, only to really portray how simple it is to come up with some last minute meals from the contents of your fridge and/or pantry. I had some squash and ground beef. That means stuffed squash is…

Peruvian Ceviche

I am an enthusiastic fan of ceviche. First off, I love fish. I grew up in Ventura county, going fishing on the weekends with my family. It’s in my blood. Second, ceviche is fresh and light while being packed with flavor! I love it so much that during my honeymoon, I made two different kinds of…

Cilantro Pistachio Pesto

As this week of conscious Primal effort comes to a close, I have noticed that I am much more mindful of the food passing from my hand to my mouth. Eating clean, whole foods takes some thought, some self-control, and some preparation. Today, I had the pleasure to cook with some fellow Crossfitters. The meal…
