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

The Best Paleo Season

The Best Paleo Season

What does Autumn mean to you?  Interchangeable with the fall season, it’s the time of year when we leave summer and head toward winter.  Growing up on the East Coast, it meant all kinds of great foods were on their way.  Fall harvest fruits and vegetables are delicious and some of the best flavors to … Continue reading

Springtime Paleo

Springtime Paleo

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

Paleo Does Not Mean Bacon!

Paleo Does Not Mean Bacon!

Someone overheard me talking about the paleo diet the other day.  “Oh, another fad diet!  Just what I need.”  Excuse me.  It’s not a fad.  It’s the longest running diet of all time, and anthropologists say it’s been going on for 2.5 million years.  It’s only been the past 10,000 years that grains and legumes … Continue reading

Why Eat Potatoes When You Can Have These?

Why Eat Potatoes When You Can Have These?

Before paleo, I’d be the first to order up a baked potato or french fries.  As a child, mashed potatoes were practically a daily dish.  After all, potatoes are definitely on a list of comfort foods for millions.  Yukon Gold, Fingerling, Russet, and Red are all favorites but they’re not in my diet anymore.  Why?  Potatoes … Continue reading

Halloween Paleo…Then Thanksgiving, Then Christmas

Halloween Paleo…Then Thanksgiving, Then Christmas

We are heading into the toughest time of year.  Food choices between October and February can mean a 10-20 lb difference in body weight by the time all is said and done.  Starting with Halloween and ending in January sometime, whenever the holiday blues subside, dropping your food disciplines can lead to 2-4 pounds a … Continue reading

Why You Need a Side of Seafood

Why You Need a Side of Seafood

We often think of our meals in terms of protein, vegetable, starch.  Every plate we order tends to be a hefty combination of all three.  That’s what most people have always been taught was a balanced meal.  If you’re a meat and potatoes person, you’re probably not eating a lot of vegetables.  If you do, they … Continue reading

How to Raise Your Cooking Game

How to Raise Your Cooking Game

I’m often asked how I come up with the dishes I present.  The first year I started writing, I was focused on my own journey and it was so easy to simply document everything I ate and comment on what I was eating and why.  As I gained momentum and began talking about my blog, … Continue reading

My Beef With Beef

My Beef With Beef

Paleo isn’t permission to eat bacon, and lettuce wrapped burgers every meal.  We still need to exercise restraint over what we put in our mouths.  Red meat has been linked to heart disease among other chronic illnesses and they say that it’s mostly due to its fat content.  Is it safe to assume that if we … Continue reading

Which Came First, the Chicken or the Duck?

Which Came First, the Chicken or the Duck?

I was on the road last week and stopped at a friend’s house along the way.  In the morning, while deciding what to do for breakfast, she showed me a dozen duck eggs she had just purchased.  “I bought them because they’re bigger”, she said.  With growing children, I’m sure you look for every opportunity … Continue reading
