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 […]

Paleo Shrimp Fried Rice

Remember the “incredible edible egg” slogan?  I feel like there needs to be something like that for cauliflower.  For Paleo folks, cauliflower fills in for a number of non-Paleo foods such as rice, pizza crust, mashed potatoes, hummus, and risotto to name a few.  Of course lots of Paleoites do eat white potatoes and white […]

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 […]

Amelia Jane’s Fabulous Deviled Eggs

Over the Christmas holidays I visited with my nephew and niece at their home and enjoyed a wonderful lunch my niece prepared including these fantastic deviled eggs.  I love deviled eggs and these had a deep, rich flavor that was so delicious.  Her secret ingredient?  Anchovies!  You might say no thanks, no fishy eggs for […]

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 […]

5-Minute Blender Porridge

Breakfast for me is usually eggs either as a scramble or omelet with veggies, or my favorite over easy eggs on top of leftovers like ground beef skillets (last week’s skillet was ground beef, marinated grilled artichokes, sundried tomatoes, summer squash and swiss chard – so yummy). On occasion though I like to mix it […]

Holiday Star Frittata with Pumpkin and Carrot Muffins

I recently spent a fantastic weekend with my two BFFs who came for a girl’s weekend in Chicago.  While we spent most of the weekend experiencing some of the wide variety of fantastic restaurants Chicago has to offer, we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at home one morning that compared quite favorably. This Holiday Star Frittata […]
