Your Diet in Times of Adversity

I’ve been missing.  I’ve been away.  I’ve been dealing with adversity.  That’s why I have not written in some time.  I am grateful that I had been paleo-healthy for the 4 years before this past year, because last year was a doozy.  Had I not been so disciplined, had I not been so well established in my … Continue reading

Your Best-Bet Steps to a Healthier 2016

There are plenty of diets that can give you guidelines on a making a healthier you, but none of them work without some essential foundation information, and that starts with you.  I have seen and heard a lot of evidence that shows why people succeed at getting healthier.  It’s not just one thing, trick, or diet that … Continue reading

Chances Are, You’re Not Eating Enough of This

Chances Are, You’re Not Eating Enough of This

When people ask me what the key is to the paleo diet, I don’t say, ‘protein’, or ‘no carbs’, or ‘no grains’.  I say, ‘omega 6-omega 3 imbalance’.  For some, that’s a hard to understand without explanation, so that’s what I’m going to provide here.  After all, research, information, facts, studies, it all helps understand … Continue reading

Make it Obvious

Make it Obvious

Wanting to eat healthy foods is a start.  Eating healthy foods can be a challenge.  Everyone knows that fish is an obvious choice when it comes to healthy protein, yet when asked, most people cannot list the last five times they had fish.  Eat more fish!  I aim for ten servings a week, in meals … Continue reading

Back to School Paleo

Over two years ago, I wrote a blog post about one of my childhood favorites, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. (A Childhood Favorite) I found Uncrustables on the snack table at a movie set and people were laughing about how decadent they were and I couldn’t believe they actually existed, let alone the fact … Continue reading

Are You Really Eating a Balanced Diet?

Are You Really Eating a Balanced Diet?

What I was taught was a balanced diet in high school health class is nowhere close to what I eat today.  By definition, a balanced diet means providing yourself with all the nutrition you need through your daily intake of food. The problem is, the only thing we have to guide ourselves to that goal … Continue reading

Cinco de Mayo Paleo

Today is a great day to celebrate.  Of course you know it’s a day of celebration commemorating the Mexican Army’s defeat of the French in 1862, right?  It’s a another excuse to go out!  More than likely, you’ll end up having margaritas and Mexican food, which is actually the worse possible food you can eat. … Continue reading

Paleo is a Process, Unlike Any Other Diet

Approaching 4 years on the paleo diet, and having spoken to hundreds of people about my own journey and theirs along the way, I recognize that there is more success in changing your eating habits if you approach paleo as a process rather than a diet.  There is a lifestyle that happens along with the … Continue reading

We’re turning the clocks forward next weekend and that reminds me that it’s the spring season.  For those of you that like to cook, new vegetables will be hitting the market and that means new flavors to stimulate your palate.  Asparagus and fennel are my favorites, along with all the different types of onions, radishes, and … Continue reading
