Baked Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Hey all! It’s been quite a while since I posted an actual recipe so I decided to take a break from my “goal” posts and give you something tasty to munch on. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I started incorporating gluten-free grains from time to time into my diet. For this recipe I used quinoa pasta, but you could …

2014 Goals: #3 Greening Our Home – Cookware

Another area of our home that really needs some greening is our kitchen…specifically our cookware. We (well really I) have been using non-stick cookware for years. As a poor college student just starting to cook on my own, I used the cheapest pans possible. My Mom eventually bought me nice pans (which I loved) but they were still the non-stick …

2014 Goals: #2 Greening Our Home – Beauty Routine

As I mentioned in my previous post, each New Year, Joe and I like to come up with goals for the year as opposed to resolutions that we know set us up for failure. These goals are not “quick fixes” and usually spread out throughout the entire year, maybe turning into complete lifestyle changes. Our second goal for 2014 is …

Making the Switch to All-Natural Shampoo

Since starting the Paleo diet, I have been really focused on the quality of the food that I put into my body. Focusing on all-natural, minimally processed, organic ingredients as much as possible. Avoiding GMO ingredients (such as soy and corn) and cooking as much as I can at home. Like I said, I’ve been focusing on what’s going INTO …

Leftover Turkey, Sweet Potato and Bacon Hash

I can’t believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone and we are only less than three weeks away from Christmas. It is going to fly by! We had an awesome Thanksgiving. I was pretty impressed with my own planning abilities and created a stress-free Thanksgiving day by cooking most of my dishes ahead of time. Dinner turned out great. We …

Curried Pork, Squash and Kale Frittata

I am finally starting to feel better and can eat pretty much all my Paleo favs again…including avocados. Yeah! Joe and I have been super busy the last couple of weeks from hosting friends, busy work schedules, friends/family in town, kickball and neighborhood parties. We went to a “Friendsgiving” neighborhood party this week that was so much fun. It was a …
