good n raw love

By | July 21st, 2015|Health, Nutrition|

So I have posted a few Instagram photos of my new favorite breakfast item. But if you've missed those posts, I am here now to tell you guys all about Good N Raw granola (and kale chips) and why I've started enjoying a bowl of this stuff pretty much every morning. PLUS, I'm offering a [...]

the winningest waffles

By | April 12th, 2015|Breakfast, Recipes|

So it might be official: the BEST waffles I have ever eaten, paleo or otherwise. And even better? My husband agrees. And he is a breakfast connoisseur. The guy knows his breakfast, and he is not messing around when he says that these make the list of the top 3 ever waffles he's EVER had. Woah. [...]

tigernut butter muffins and a product review!

By | April 6th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

Ever heard of a tigernut? No, it's not made from tiger genitalia (I thought I would get that out of the way from the start). And no, it's actually not even a nut! TigerNuts are actually tubers, another radical root that has stolen my heart and my tastebuds. Even cooler? Tigernuts actually comprised up to 80% of [...]

cocoa nut butter zucchini muffins

By | February 5th, 2015|Breakfast, Recipes|

MY husband and I have gotten really good at a once a week shopping trip to farmers market that lasts us the whole week. Usually, Friday and Saturday turn out some pretty awesome, creative meals as we work to use up whatever is left  before our Sunday trip. Soups turn to sauces, meals might look [...]

quiche for all seasons

By | January 22nd, 2015|Breakfast, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

This year is off to a crazy, albeit awesome, start, and I am taking my clean eating with me. Busy days are no excuse to let food quality go to the wayside. In fact, the busier life gets, the more important it is to eat nutrient dense foods because they keep energy levels high, mood [...]

fig and walnut waffles

By | January 12th, 2015|Breakfast, Health, Recipes|

I love waffles. A lot. But since changing my diet and figuring out what works for me, I really don't love the way I feel when I have a breakfast that's loaded with sugar. My little sister left today for 5 months in Italy. I told her that her last two meals before she left [...]

cranberry lemon swirl pancakes

By | December 11th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

Pancakes... oh how I love pancakes. There was a time, after realizing how severe my intolerance was to certain foods, when I thought I would never get to enjoy pancakes again. I tried all kinds of "paleo" pancakes and would always end up feeling bloated, heavy, and uncomfortable from loads of almond flour and a tummy [...]

cranberry sauce scones

By | November 30th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

I think it is a tragedy that every holiday season, globs of delicious cranberry sauce are thrown wastefully into the garbage. Cranberry sauce is one of those feast accompaniments that no one really knows what to do with once the meal is over and the leftovers are consumed. But that is all about to change. Put [...]

grain-free pumpkin granola

By | October 20th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

I don't know about you guys, but sometimes, I Just. Want. Cereal. Especially crunchy, delicious granola. This is coming from a girl who literally lived off of granola in college. I had it in yogurt with fresh berries in the warm months (and because I went to Cal Poly, that means about 10 months of [...]
