Sweet and Savory Breakfast Hash

Some days you wake up and just know that you’re hungry for something high-powered but egg free.  Some days you really, really desire something that is both sweet and savory. And some days you know you’ll need to make a lot all at once to make your efforts worthwhile (and to ensure delicious leftovers!!).  For […]

Paleo Chicken Parmesan

Life, as we all know, can sometimes become so overwhelming. That doesn’t always mean bad or negative things are happening…it just simply means our plate is overflowing. Mine has been overflowing for quite some time, hence the lack of sharing here! Recently though, I’ve begun to realize that most of my overflow is self inflicted.  […]

What We Eat: Teriyaki Beef Kabobs (Paleo, Whole30)

Last week I shared how I managed to stretch a meal originally planned for 4 to be enough for 8 people…this week, the concept is similar. Fruits and vegetables can make a meal stretch. Use these instead of grains and you’ve got a paleo plan you can afford to stick with. Because we purchase our […]

Banana Pecan Bread

What do you do when the high for the day is a whopping 22 degrees, the roads are covered in ice and you have been told by the local authorities to just stay home? Why you bake, of course! As we were getting moving this morning, my husband saw me grabbing the three very ripe […]

Simple Frittata (mix and match!)

As we prepare for our New Year, New You, Naturally cleanse, I am doing my best to get back in the habit of making high-protein, vegetable rich breakfasts. I find that my week flows a lot easier when I plan ahead, and I stick to my plan much more effectively when I make one or […]
