Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

I awakened this morning to a light rain. I’m pretty sure nothing smells better. If you know anything about Arizona weather, you know that it’s seldom we get rain except during monsoon season. During these months, it can be sweltering hot when suddenly the sky will…

Ryan’s Low Country Boil

Ryan’s Low Country Boil

Yeehaw! This meal was prepared for us by our awesome neighbors .  We love them!  These are people you would love to have as friends, but are lucky enough to live next door to. Let’s talk about the grub.  This is known as a low country boil (which I was completely…

FDA Approved?

FDA Approved?

What does this statement really mean? Well, it actually does not mean that a drug is completely safe or universally effective. It only means it is more helpful than harmful once the risks and side effects are weighed. FDA Approval, great, sign me up! Kind of sounds…

Paleo Pork Tenderloin Anyone?

Paleo Pork Tenderloin Anyone?

I received a suggestion by Mark Smith in Cheyenne, Wyoming recently to try a pork tenderloin recipe.  Here’s a variation of of the recipe submitted.  It was incredibly juicy and delicious.  Why don’t I cook the “other” white meat more often?  I think it will be more…

My Paleo Journey

My Paleo Journey

I wouldn’t preach about something that I didn’t personally try and have great results with.  That goes for my nutrition, supplements and several other areas of my life.  Even so, I will not preach about these things since it’s just not my style.  If anyone chooses to…

Where’s the beef?

Where’s the beef?

It’s Friday night, I don’t want to cook. Grill? No problem, right? Picked up these awesome filets and drizzled with a bit of olive oil, seasoned with sea salt, black pepper, onion and garlic powder. Done and done. Served on top of stir fry veggies sautéed in coconut…

In need of inspiration…

In need of inspiration…

This morning when I woke, I found that I had slept straight through the night. I was shocked. It was the second night with our new puppy and I must have done something right, because he slept from 10-7. Not bad! The first night was a whole other story, but I won’t go…

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day!

Please welcome….Phoenix! He’s our new English yellow Labrador.  I am so in love with him!  He is only 7 weeks old and now that we are back from a 3 plus week long trip, he had finally joined our family.  I’d like to think he is my sweet Jake (RIP 3/1/12)…

One for the road…

One for the road…

Happy Friday!  Cheers, the weekend is here!  I’m happy I’ve had the chance to be on the road for the past 3 weeks.  We’ve hit 15 states and many awesome, fun filled stops along the way.  I have burpeed many states and national monuments even!  I look forward to…

Live and let it go…

Live and let it go…

I took the above photo at Lake St. Mary’s in Celina, Ohio while visiting family last week. The sun was setting and the colors were beautiful.  So peaceful. “If you try to please everyone, the one person who will not be happy is you.” Author unknown. Listen, I was…

Run for your life…

Run for your life…

I absolutely love to run. For me, it is one of those things I can do anywhere. I have been running since I was 12 or 13. In high school I ran track and cross country. I think at that age, I was already realizing that running was a therapeutic vice for me. It’s good…

Small Fry

Small Fry

  So, you say to yourself, “Sure, I’d love to eat Paleo, but who has time to cook all those special meals?” News flash…you DO have time and they DON’T take so long. Listen, I have 3 kids, a husband, a busy life, full schedule, like everyone else on the planet,…

Paleo on the Go?

Paleo on the Go?

Can it be done?  I would definitely say so, though it takes some preparation and education as to how the place you are ordering does their food prep.  And, if you are able to pack your own meals, even better. For times when you are at the mercy of others, ask…

Keepin it Light

Keepin it Light

As the temperature starts to climb, thoughts of egg salad, chicken salad and fruit are starting to sound great.  For a simple egg salad wrap, get out your Pure Wraps and fill with a nice heaping glob of egg salad.  I’ve been making mine with a slight bit of Paleo…

Don’t be a Chicken

Don’t be a Chicken

Happy Monday morning!  After spending the weekend in Chicago, we are happy to be home with the kiddos. It was so much fun to go to the infamous Wrigley Field and watch  a game from one of the Wrigley Rooftops.  Whose idea was this anyway?  It’s genius! I even did a…

Here’s the Skinny…Margarita that is!

Here’s the Skinny…Margarita that is!

Yes, Bethenny Frankel has her Skinny Girl Margaritas, and I make what I like to call a Skinny Bitch. My bestie Kari and I have tweaked the living hell out of this until we got it just right. Long hours, late nights, laboratory grade test studies…well, we’ve drank a…

Fitness and your kids

Fitness and your kids

Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years. More than 20% of 6-11 year olds and over 18% for 12-19 year olds as per the CDC (Center for Disease Control) are considered overweight. This both shocks and saddens me. If your child is overweight, the…

Paleo Slow Cooker Macadamia Nut Chicken Pesto

Paleo Slow Cooker Macadamia Nut Chicken Pesto

I found this recipe on Rubies and Radishes and thought it looked delicious and simple.  Anytime I can get out my crock pot, I’m all about it. It allows me to throw healthy Paleo meals together earlier in the day when the kids are at school and the rest is done for me….
