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 …

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 …

What I Ate Today

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you truly have a blessed day with family and friends and are able to enjoy some delicious food (Paleo or not!). I can honestly say that everything I’m making will be 100% Paleo/Primal. Very excited about that. 🙂 I have a quick “What I Ate Today”  post for you. I hope it can inspire you for …

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 …

Sweet Potato and Apple Mash

This week feels like it is truly dragging. It’s only Wednesday as I write this and the weekend feels like a million miles away. I just started taking a new prescription a few weeks ago (long story I may share at some point) and it has been making me feel awful. I’ve had off and on nausea and stomach upset …

Mango Coconut Ice Cream

Ice cream is pretty much a staple in our house. We don’t eat it every day but it’s nice to have it waiting in the freezer for when those cravings strike. I started making ice cream at home before eating Paleo and used a base of heavy cream, milk and sugar. Now I’ve found an awesome ice cream base that …

It’s FINALLY starting to feel like Fall in Austin. Even though Halloween is here and gone, I just haven’t felt like it’s truly Fall yet with temperatures still in the 80’s. Luckily, we did visit Kansas City a few weeks ago with my family and enjoyed some cooler temperatures. When it’s 60 degrees in December and everyone back home in …

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I am absolutely in love with Fall…along with pretty much everyone else. I get very nostalgic around this time and start missing home. Autumn-inspired foods always bring me comfort. If only it were a little bit cooler, I’d start making my beef and butternut squash stew! But here in Austin some days it still feels like summer. Luckily we are headed to …

Spaghetti Squash Crust Pizza

It has been a crazy couple of weeks. We are finally moved into our new house!! Beyond excited. I feel like we have been looking forward to this moment for so long and now it’s actually here. So blessed. Needless to say I’ve been pretty busy between work, unpacking and making 200 trips to Target. I haven’t had a whole …

Hickory BBQ Bacon Chicken Burger

This is a big week for Joe and I…we move into our new house in Austin! This moment has been a long time coming. We have not had a place to call our own for over a year when we initially moved to Omaha. I’m not complaining because it was all our own doing and decisions, but I am so …
