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 [...]

So, I got a new pressure cooker. It's beautiful. In fact, I sit and sing to it in the evenings.... not really, but I seriously love this thing. Big thanks to Danielle Walker of Against All Grain for posting a great deal for Cyber Monday last week. You can find the cooker HERE. It rocks. [...]

no-cook coconut cocoa truffles… and the importance of your people

By | August 7th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

It'll be no surprise to anyone when I say this... People spend too much damn time with their noses in their phones (while not everyone is guilty of this, I'm speaking of the majority... At least here in the Silicon Valley). I think it's gotten too easy to forget about living and loving actual life [...]

chocolate zucchini bread and being a locavore

By | June 25th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

There is all kinds of hype around the whole organic movement. Is it something to buy into, or is it just another marketing catchword like "gluten-free" that doesn't necessarily hold any merit in terms of nutrient density? Well, my goal with this post is to help clarify, answer your questions, and hopefully, help you understand [...]

paleo butter shortbread cookies and the benefits of ghee

By | June 21st, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

So I had the opportunity to try out a new clarified butter product called PALEO BUTTER, and oh boy was I impressed. As you guys know by now, I only post about products that I really believe in, and this is one of those products. This stuff tastes like the best butter you''ll ever try (the [...]

silver linings and cacao, coconut, cashew protein cups

By | June 13th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes, The Mind|

The process of finally starting the journey of allowing myself to heal over the past month and a half has been really rough for me for a few reasons. One, I am addicted to exercise, and letting go, taking true 100% full time off has been a struggle (imagine a whole new kind of withdrawal). [...]

let’s unlearn the crap… plus a new paleo cacao energy bar recipe!

By | June 6th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

A special delivery came yesterday, which provided a much needed mood-boost. Chocolate (especially Love Bean Fudge) and a good book can heal most problems, after all... So now I finally get to crack into  Liz Wolfe's book Eat the Yolks. It's as awesome as I knew it would be. A fellow English major, the girl can write, and [...]

chocolate banana muffins and why sharing is caring

By | May 27th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Nutrition, Recipes|

I have a little extra time to cook, bake, and experiment in the kitchen right now since I can't train because of my neck.... This creates a bit of a conundrum, though, because eating baked goods all day when I'm not working out at all... Well, it goes without saying that that just won't do. [...]

Memorial Day Murph and bacon cheddar stuffed burger bowls

By | May 26th, 2014|Nutrition, Pastured Meat|

Before I jump into a recipe, I want to take a moment to highlight the real reason for this long weekend. Eating yummy food and hanging in the sun with friends and family are great, but we can't forget why we celebrate Memorial Day... To remember and honor the men and women who have given the [...]

paleo “peanut butter” cups

By | May 22nd, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

Again, I use quotes here because they aren't actually made with peanut butter, but boy do they taste like it. Before, I dive in, I have to let you know something. I have NEVER liked Reese's peanut butter cups. Since I was a kid, they made my stomach hurt so bad (probably because I had [...]
