Superfoods

There are many ways to live a healthy lifestyle.  One is to try to include as many “superfoods” in your diet as possible. A superfood is a nutrient rich food with high levels of phytochemicals. A phytochemical is a naturally occurring chemical, usually recognized in…

Spicy Sriracha Chicken and Vegetables

Spicy Sriracha Chicken and Vegetables

I love spice and heat in nearly everything I eat. I try to use it as much as possible.  If you’re in a hurry and have some ground chicken or turkey on hand, this is a great recipe to try.  It’s especially simple if you keep lots of frozen veggies on hand.  I used to…

Eating Like a Caveman or Cavewoman

Eating Like a Caveman or Cavewoman

I began a journey late last year to eliminate what little grain I had in my diet. When I realized that this was considered Paleo, I began to read more on the subject.  In doing so, I also rid myself completely of dairy too.  Somehow, I have never looked back nor have…

Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala

Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala

I confess, this is not my cooking. Looks pretty though, huh? My husband had this for lunch the other day at the Pita Jungle sans brown rice.  It’s really quite simple to stick to your Paleo habits when dining out.  We frequent this restaurant because they use lots of…

Almond Encrusted Dijon Halibut and Roasted Sprouts

Almond Encrusted Dijon Halibut and Roasted Sprouts

Listen, I know brussel sprouts have a bad rap, but I’m about to break it down for you.   It’s all in the preparation as to whether or not these are amazing.  I personally had never eaten a brussel sprout until a few years ago.  They sounded gross!   My father in law…

Feelin’ Salty?

Feelin’ Salty?

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Or is it? This totally reminds me of this past SNL’s skit of “It’s Almost Pizza”.  Eating Paleo and missing some of the comfort foods in your life.   Fear not, Almost Spaghetti with Meat Sauce is here!  I kid. You will need: 1lb of grass fed beef or grass fed bison 1…

Self Improvement, Self Worth

Self Improvement, Self Worth

I learned a long long time ago to stop comparing myself to others. I learned this at around 12 years old in fact.  I was a gymnast when I was young and have always been genetically predisposed to having an athletic  build.  As a young girl, I was always comparing…

Coconut Chicken with Roasted Garlic Sautéed Spinach

Coconut Chicken with Roasted Garlic Sautéed Spinach

This recipe was very similar to making chicken parmesan except no breading.  I wanted to try this out and see if anyone would eat it.  A success it was. Coconut Chicken: 1-2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast 1 cup of almond meal 1/2 c of unsweetened coconut 1-2…

Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I forgot to post this meal with all the craziness happening around here. It’s actually been a much better day for me.  I made a huge effort to control myself and try not to cry all day.  If you are not familiar with why, it’s because we just lost our yellow lab of 10…
