What to Put on Your Burger

What to Put on Your Burger

Burgers are everywhere.  I love them.  Here’s the problem.  A traditional burger, the way I grew up eating them, comes on a bun, with ketchup, pickles, and a side of fries.  As soon as you mention a hamburger, that’s what I think of.  How do you change your emotional needs when eating?  It takes time, … Continue reading

Nice and Lite

Nice and Lite

Every once in a while I like to lighten it up.  As much as I enjoy a good protein boost in the morning, sometimes a big dinner the night before can keep you full.  We are creatures of habit and we will eat at the same time every day, given a steady schedule.  Be flexible … Continue reading

You Might Think This is Nasty…

You Might Think This is Nasty…

It’s flu season.  So many people are sick.  I’ve been lucky enough to fight it off.  At the first signs of feeling “under the weather”, I eat oranges, spinach, and a big pot of chicken soup.  Chicken soup has been a home remedy for years.  The New York Times reported the science behind chicken soup, … Continue reading

Chinese Food Paleo

Chinese Food Paleo

Like any restaurant, sticking to paleo in a Chinese restaurant is challenging, but here, you will have plenty to choose from.  Dumplings, noodles, rice, and tofu are major components in most Chinese restaurants and not paleo friendly.  Luckily, fish, shellfish, poultry, and pork are also staples that can be ordered untainted by grains.  Double check … Continue reading

Getting Back on Track

Traveling over the holidays can be challenging to your routine, especially a paleo routine.  Leafy greens, protein, and root vegetables can be tough to find every meal on the road.  Make an effort to plan your meals ahead of time and don’t succumb to temptations just because they’re available all the time.  If you indulged … Continue reading

And Best Paleo Blog Post of 2012 is…

Taking a look back on the best posts of 2012, this one stood out head and shoulders above the rest.  Maybe, I just happened to hit a streak of global paleo interest, or maybe the subject matter is international.  You be the judge.  This post is also relevant because of a recent experience my sister … Continue reading

Can You See the Face in the French Toast?

Can You See the Face in the French Toast?

Vacation is not an excuse for me to eat poorly.  In fact, I ate very well throughout the holidays.  There were a few new discoveries which gave me some new flavors to enjoy.  I discovered a no sugar added hard cider, called Crispin, and another called Magners.  They were delicious and wintery and a welcome … Continue reading

I Loved Bread…What I Eat Now.

I Loved Bread…What I Eat Now.

The first thing we do when trying a new diet is look for substitutions for our favorite foods.  On the paleo diet, there are no grains, dairy, or sugar.  Sugar tends to be the easiest to eliminate because we still have sweet things like fruit to turn to when eliminating processed sugar.  Honey and agave … Continue reading
