secret ingredient paleo meatloaf

So Rusty absolutely loves meatloaf, which is great because it's a relatively simple meal to prepare. BUT what complicates things is that he is incredibly particular about the meatloaf that he likes. I am pretty sure there's nothing that pisses him off more than dry meatloaf (ok that might be a little extreme, but this is [...]

bone broth benefits… better than botox

By | July 15th, 2014|Autoimmune Paleo, Health, Nutrition, Offal, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

So, I've been drinking A LOT of bone broth lately, and it's delicious! More (or maybe equally) important, though, is the fact that bone broth is loaded with nutrients and has innumerable health benefits - from healthier, firmer skin to healthy bones (more on this later). Just to clarify, this is NOT the bone stock [...]

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing months of planning come together with the kick off of the Second Annual NorCal CrossFit Bro-Down! This is a yearly event I put on for all four NorCal locations that brings our community together for some friendly competition, bro bonding, and lots of fun. I left the gym with a [...]

beef tongue… it’s what’s for dinner

By | June 18th, 2014|Health, Nutrition, Offal, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

So I have been posting a lot of clean treats and baked goods lately (have you tried these cookies yet??), but I can assure you that I don't eat those treats all that often (though they are delicious AND fun to experiment with). They're fun to create and share, and even my clean treats always have some [...]

It was just like Christmas morning last week when a giant package showed up on our doorstep from US Wellness Meats! Check these beauties out! My personal favorite is the giant tongue.

The length of this post is fitting for the content of this recipe because.... well, it's quick and can be taken in on the go. Sometimes, we don't have time for an elaborate meal (or an elaborate blog post). And this is one of those time. So along with this quick blog post, comes a quick [...]

Today was a good day... Baby Kali tested my patience, and I passed, I got a lot of work done, trained hard, and then my two pups proceeded to entertain me, love me, and give the best cuddles, until Rusty came home for a perfect finish. On top of that, I made a delicious dinner, [...]

Every once in a while, I have to pat myself on the back. This is one of those times.... After sticking my fork in and having the meat just fall off, I knew I had a winner. Then with one bite it was clear. Ok I'll stop gloating now.... (I am just pumped because there [...]
