super simplest post roast

By | April 28th, 2016|Autoimmune Paleo, Health, Nutrition, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

Have I mentioned that I love my Instant Pot? Of course I have, but in case you missed it: I love my Instant Pot. This thing has made life so much easier, and because we are in the midsts of big change, busy schedules, and a remodel... well easy is pretty necessary. This recipe time [...]

super easy squash and kale soup

By | February 7th, 2016|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

I frequently discuss the importance of real/whole food as the source for all of the nutrients we need to heal, perform, and thrive. But one of the issues many people seem to face when it comes to getting all the needed nutrients is that it can be daunting to eat a giant bowl of greens or [...]

your shortcut to a serious superfood

By | September 22nd, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, Health, Nutrition|

*Scroll to the bottom for a crazy good deal! Yep, a shortcut... That's right; I said it. And this is coming from a girl who has never been an advocate for any sort of quick fix pill or supplement, and who has always said (and will keep on saying) that a real food approach is [...]

If you've followed me for long, you'll know that I am ALL about team turmeric. Look no further than THIS post to find all of the amazing health benefits that this little orange powerhouse provides.

an electrolyte elixir and the guile of Gatorade

By | April 28th, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, CrossFit, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, To Drink|

As an active part of the CrossFit community and a life-long athlete of pretty much every team sport available to me as a kid, I have seen my fair share of sugary sports drinks, advertised, purchased, and handed out for their electrolytes and performance enhancement. The reality, though? It's all hogwash. Look no further than THIS [...]

the perfect sweet potato fries

By | April 2nd, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

Almost every person who has switched over to a paleo diet has attempted homemade sweet potato "fries" with the anticipation of recreating the crispy, oily, salty goodness that so many restaurants have recently started offering on their menus. After valuable time spent in the kitchen, these folks will open the oven, grab a fry, and take [...]

finger lickin’ good crispy roasted chicken

By | March 23rd, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

What a Sunday we had yesterday! Nothing makes me happier than getting outside to play and explore in nature with my friends, family, and pups. And yesterday was the best combination of all 3. Hours of exploring with my husband, brother, his girlfriend, and our pups in Santa Cruz's Nisine Marks State Park, followed by [...]

egg-free, nut-free cocoa fudge brownies and the power of movement

By | March 20th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Autoimmune Paleo, CrossFit, Health, Movement Tips, Recipes|

Brownies, oh brownies, how I love brownies. You know what else I love (something that I haven't written much about recently, but practice every single day)? CrossFit and movement in general, really. Nutrition is the basis of health, yes, but movement, well that's what makes us human. It's something we all share a need for, [...]

bone broth jigglers

By | March 12th, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, Grab and Go, Nutrition, Offal, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

It should come as no surprise by now that I am a huge advocate of homemade bone broth. Look no further than THIS post to see why. The cool thing about this healing bone juice is that you don't need much to reap some benefits (although the more, the healthier, of course). The  not so cool [...]

inflammation busting turmeric bacon chili

By | March 4th, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, Health, Nutrition, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

How many of you have tried my chunky chili recipe? Of all my recipes, I have gotten the best feedback from this one. People seem to LOVE it, and I have to admit, I don't blame them; we do too. It's been a staple at our house every week (the ones we've been home, at [...]
