Chocolate Orange Scones

If flavors could get married, I would stand up as a witness to the Chocolate and Orange nuptials. They’re such a classy pair, don’t you think!? One of my favorite resources for flavor pairing is The Flavor Thesaurus. It would make an amazing addition to any kitchen or a gift for the serious cooks in…

Simple Greek Olive Salad

I posted this idea up on my Instagram the other day so HOPEFULLY you already saw it cause you’re a Clean Plate follower! But if not, then here’s the bloggy version of that post. You better sit down. Cause this is gonna take a while… …Just kidding! This is the easiest of the easy. A SUPER…

What I Ate Wednesday

What do I usually eat? That’s the question I answer in these posts. We can all use some inspiration to spice up our weekly meals! Breakfast 2.5 oz. smoked wild salmon (Trader Joe’s $5.99/5 oz.) 2 fresh organic eggs (Sprouts, $4.99/doz) 1/2 avocado (local latin market, $1/each) Lunch (post yoga) 4 oz. crispy pork belly…

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…

Recipe Sharing

I’ve been having fun with lots of recipes from fellow bloggers… So I thought I’d share my copy-cat creations and corresponding pics. Paleo Orange Chicken The Paleo Cupboard is a new fav of mine. The website is super adorable. This meal gets an A+ from me. Next time I will be breading it like my…

Gut Repair Week 1

Week 1 of my Repair Protocol has commenced. I celebrated my last week of fun eats with things like fried plantains, carnitas with hot sauce, frozen yogurt (dairy-free) with Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, and gluten-free pizza with lots and lots of mushrooms. I know, not the most extravagant of food sins… but I enjoyed every…

Cilantro Egg Salad Sandwich

I’m baaack! I felt like taking a little reprieve from posting after my 30-day blogging marathon.  I’ve got a great recipe for you today! Thank goodness for pinterest and all her crazy paleo food ideas 🙂 I needed a little inspiration to try things outside of my normal cooking routine. Here’s a lovely little Egg Salad…

The Clean Slate Day 29 and Paleo Trail Mix

Disneyland! Happiest Place on Earth right? Well, I found this inspiring little meme from Neghar this morning, and I love it. Happiness comes from within. External circumstances (even Disneyland) cannot blot out a mournful, spiteful, bitter, or ungrateful heart. Take care of your soul everyday. You don’t have to go to Disneyland to be happy….

The Clean Slate Day 2

  Day 2 was a recovery day. I started out the day with some breakfast and a walk around Dana Point Harbor, followed by Yoga in the Park. It was a beautiful sunny day so I was happy to spend some time outdoors. The rest of the day was a smörgåsboard of errands, always SUPER…

The Clean Slate Day 1

As I recap Day 1 of The Clean Slate I would like to make something known: My butt hurts. So good (bad). Thanks to yesterday’s kettlebell workout by Neghar. That stuff is no joke. I can definitely appreciate the importance of mixing up your workout “routine” with new and interesting methods and movements. I do…
