Nutella is not for Breakfast!

Nutella is not for Breakfast!

One morning, I went to my favorite French breakfast place, Le Pain Quotidien.  I like it there because they serve a number of paleo friendly dishes including egg whites with a mixed green salad.  They’re always open to making the plate just how I like it.  But, they’re known for their breads and baked goods, … Continue reading

It’s Not Just For Dinner Anymore!

It’s Not Just For Dinner Anymore!

It’s that time of year!  The holiday season (yes, only 88 shopping days until Christmas) is upon us.  Please start programming yourself now, starting with, no Halloween candy!  We’ll discuss options at a future date.  Thanksgiving is a very paleo time of year.  You won’t miss the stuffing when you taste the alternatives, and, last … Continue reading

A Balanced Breakfast

A Balanced Breakfast

I remember hearing the term, “a balanced breakfast”, quite often in commercials growing up.  Somehow, it always seemed  to go along with a bowl of cereal next to a glass of orange juice.  This is almost criminal.  A whole generation, maybe two or three, have been hearing the same thing and it’s doing more harm … Continue reading

Leftover Omelet

Leftover Omelet

Last night, I had a delicious chicken breast from Whole Foods.  Mary’s Air Chilled Organic Chicken Breast was on sale so I snatched one up for a quick meal.  I can tell the difference with air chilled chicken, especially when cooking.  Water will come out of a poorly processed chicken during cooking, making it hard … Continue reading

Just Egg Whites

Just Egg Whites

A friend recently commented, “Cooking like that takes too much time”.  I beg to differ, but I know not everyone is as comfortable in the kitchen as I am.  Of course, dumping cereal into a bowl and pouring milk on top is quite simple but you can make a better choice for your health with … Continue reading

Paleo is Simple

Paleo is Simple

I had a conversation with my cousin yesterday.  She decided to go paleo and called me for advice.  Why now?  Maybe she is through with her two soda-a-day habit.  Maybe it is my mother’s success losing 28 lbs in 4 months that convinced her she could do it, too.  Whatever the reason, it’s the right … Continue reading

My Egg Salad

My Egg Salad

I love reading new paleo recipes, but  there’s nothing like going back to the basics.  Someone asked me if egg salad was paleo.  After all, mayo is just egg yolks and oil, right?  Yes, and no.  If you hand make your mayo using olive oil, yes.  If you buy mayo in a jar made with … Continue reading

Get them while you can!

Get them while you can!

Summer is almost over and with that goes a lot of our summer vegetables.  In California, we are lucky to get great produce all year.  But, in most states, winter means higher prices for vegetables.  One vegetable that is easier to get than most is squash.  Zucchini is plentiful, as is a few varieties of … Continue reading

What is Vitamin K?

What is Vitamin K?

As I’ve been researching the paleo food list, it makes sense why there’s so much sickness.  I use to think I ate healthy foods until I saw what really healthy eating was all about.  Many of us grew up thinking we were taking care of ourselves because we drank orange juice at breakfast, getting all … Continue reading

Crave This!

Crave This!

When we think of cravings, we think of all the sweets: cakes, ice cream, breads, sugars, and dairy.  I never thought I’d ever “crave” healthy foods.  Once I removed the bad ones, I started to.  Imagine craving healthy foods all the time.  That’s what happened when I started the paleo diet.  Once it’s all you … Continue reading
