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 [...]

beef and bacon chunky pumpkin chili

By | January 28th, 2016|Pastured Meat, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

The joys of preparing food go deeper than a hobby or the taste testing. This recipe is a perfect example of that. Making a meal at home for yourself and/or the ones you love goes beyond saving money or eating clean; it allows the opportunity to nourish on a deeper level, no matter how fancy [...]

strawberry rhubarb tart

By | July 8th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Recipes|

After the great response I got from posting a photo of this tart on Instagram last night, I knew I shouldn't hesitate on getting the recipe posted for you guys. The inspiration for this recipe came to me after buying far too much rhubarb at farmers market because sometimes too much of a good thing [...]

raw probiotic lemon berry “cheese” cakes

By | June 29th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

I am clearly on a summer dessert kick right now. Maybe it's because the weather has been absolutely gorgeous for the past two weeks. Because of the weather and the season and my general proclivity for being outdoors, we've been spending most days outside. I've even got a work station set up on our back porch. [...]

on the move

By | June 18th, 2015|Health, Movement and Play, The Mind|

Oh moving. The joy. The excitement. The anxiety. The stress. Oh, and the bruises (at least I used all of my fitness)... But it's all worth it. We have officially moved up to the Pacific Northwest, we're putting down roots in our little Radical Roots Homestead, and we couldn't be happier. I've been getting a lot [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

creamy apple fennel soup

By | February 24th, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

It's winter in California, which means that delicious apples are everywhere. For that reason, it's also the only time of year that I crave them. It's pretty impressive how the body can be so in tune with the seasons, even so much so that cravings follow suit. That crisp bite, the sweet aroma and flavor. Apples [...]

shaved brussie bacon salad

This is a good one, a real original. What we've got here is a cool, crisp salad that works well in winter, filled with many of the flavors from my bacon apple nut brussies (a real hit with you guys), but with a unique twist. Brussel sprouts and apples are in season right now, and I just [...]
