I think there's time for one last soup for the season.... And this one is my favorite yet, It's so good I couldn't wait until winter rolled around again to share it with you guys. Nor could I wait till winter to make it in our own house two weeks in a row.Something about the [...]

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 [...]

A good friend of ours is also a commercial fisherman, and he is very good at what he does. He's also an awesome human and member at our CrossFit gym. He surprised Rusty and me this past week with a shoebox filled with fresh-caught Dungeness crab. Have I mentioned one of my love languages is food? Anyways, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

creamy tomato soup… a favorite family tradition

As far back as I can remember my family has spent Christmas Eve at my great aunt and uncles (the coolest God Parents a girl could ask for). Some of my most cherished memories are from this night once a year where the parents would eat raw oysters (which I thought were nasty). Where I had [...]

creamy carrot and fennel soup, plus the power of “why?”

By | December 5th, 2014|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

How often do you ask "why?" "Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers." - Voltaire As a kid I was constantly asking why (probably to the point where it was annoying). I was never content with "because I said so" or "because that's what everyone else is doing." I'm happy to say [...]

Ahhhh summer. It's hard to beat this time of year; sunshine, tank tops, flip flops, cold brew, bright produce, and The CrossFit Games... What's not to love? First, let's talk about the CrossFit Games. 1 day is done, and what a day it was for my good friends, Jason Khalipa, who is holding his own [...]
