Blood Type Diet and Modified Zuppa Toscana Soup Recipe

When I found Paleo I thought it was the holy grail for health and EVERYBODY should follow it.  Yeah I was “that guy” who wanted to convert everyone to my newfound way of eating.  Over the past 7 years I’ve of course learned that eating right for your body is a very individualized thing.  Even […]

Fig Zucchini Pasta with Hemp Seed Crumble

Figs are now in season!!  I’ve found them at farmers markets and at Whole Foods (get organic if you can).  Fig season is early August through October, peaking around Labor Day.  They taste AMAZING and are so good for you (and your sex life). Health benefits of figs: Great source of fiber to help digestive […]

Veggie Noodles with Cashew-Cilantro Pesto

Even though I have many Paleo cookbooks and can find hundreds of Paleo recipes available online, I couldn’t resist this Paleo Recipes magazine at the grocery store checkout.  The yummy Avocados Topped 8 Ways on the cover was irresistible, the pictures gorgeous and the recipes easy.  There are also a few pages explaining the Paleo […]

Paleo Fish Tacos with Pineapple Cilantro Salsa

I’ve been trying to eat more fish at home.  I order fish often when dining out but just don’t find myself cooking it very often.  Not sure why I am reluctant as it always turns out to be surprisingly easy, and this Paleo Fish Tacos recipe from NomNomPaleo, recently published in Sunset magazine, is no […]

My New Favorite Skillet Dinner

I am a big fan of the skillet dinner.  One big skillet, a pound of ground meat, lots of veggies, some good oil and you’ve got a healthy dinner on the table in about half a hour.  The even better part?  Leftovers for heating up in a skillet with over easy, runny yolk eggs for […]

Paleo Coconut Bars

We don’t have treats very often, and less often now that the kids are back at college.  But every once in a while we have a hankering for something a bit sweet, but don’t want to wander too far off the Paleo reservation.  When that happens I usually check out Elana’s Pantry for ideas.  She […]

Salmon Quiche

This is a recipe I have been making for many years from a cookbook called “Eating Well When You Just Can’t Eat the Way You Used To”.  When our kids were little they loved having “salmon pie”.  I loved getting healthy salmon into them! You could make this quiche with an almond flour crust, but […]

Lemon-Maple Kale Salad

I’ve been looking for more salad ideas and this one from Melissa Joulwan at theclothesmakethegirl.com is a winner. I love getting more kale (a true superfood) into our meals and dates are always a nice bit of sweetness. Massaging the kale made it very tender and I predict this salad is going to be turning […]

Shredded Pork with Pistachio Apple Salad

Here is a super easy, perfect for summer dinner that doesn’t heat up the kitchen.  NomNomPaleo’s Kahlua Pig recipe is super easy to make in the slow cooker overnight. You can also do Kahlua Pig in a pressure cooker in less time. Cook up a batch of Easy BBQ sauce and chop up apples, endive […]

Shrimp Bisque

This recipe from Paleo Comfort Foods looked complicated but definitely wasn’t.  I skipped a step (cooking the shrimp shells in the broth and draining it) cutting 20 minutes off the cooking time and don’t think it impacted the taste.  The whole family loved it.  You could also make it with crab instead of shrimp, might […]
