21 Day Sugar Detox and Steak with Raspberry & Blue Cheese Sauce

Sugar detox and a recipe with blue cheese and raspberries don’t really go together, but that’s just too bad. I am currently on Day 1 Level 3 of the 21-Day Sugar Detox. Level 3 is for those who already follow a Paleo/Primal diet. The purpose of this detox is two-fold: 1.) I really feel like I’m still addicted to sugar …

Asparagus & Ham Frittata

While Joe and I were in Austin, I had two different frittatas  (check out the posts here and here) and was determined to make a recipe at home. I’ve always been scared to make one because for some reason taking a pan on the stove and putting it in the oven seemed hard. Really I’m not sure why. This was so …

Sausage, Sweet Potato & Kale Hash

I found a really delicious chicken sausage at Trader Joe’s that doesn’t have any added sugar and is fully cooked. Their Smoked Apple Chardonnay chicken sausage inspired me to think of something different to make instead of just grilling them up like we usually do. I knew I wanted to incorporate sweet potatoes (of course!) and apples. After a little …

Mostly Paleo Austin Recap Part 2

I promised I would finish my recap of our recent adventure to Austin, so here it is. A little delayed, but still here! One night while we were there I wanted to tried a fancier place. We chose (or should I say that I chose…) to go to the Salty Sow. It was a really unique, modern place that had …

Mostly Paleo Austin Recap Part 1

Joe and I just got back from Austin, Texas and had a blast! It was filled with lots of good food, great weather, exploring downtown, hiking, paddle boarding, shopping and catching up with a friend. I promised to provide some food highlights from the trip, so let’s just get to it…  The first place I wanted to try was Wholly …

My Favorite Roasted Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

I am officially obsessed with sweet potatoes (hence the name of the website). 🙂 If I could eat them for every meal, I probably would. Actually, I definitely would. I try to limit them to a few times a week (which is really limiting them for me). My favorite way to eat them is by roasting them in the oven …

Ham, Mushroom and Spinach Omelet

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Joe and I stayed at Hotel Deco in downtown Omaha to enjoy a nice relaxing evening away from home. We had reservations at the Zin Room and I could not wait for our little in-town weekend getaway. Unfortunately we were both underwhelmed with the whole experience. Food was pricey, service was slow, didn’t get a good …

Crockpot Italian Shredded Pork

I am absolutely in love with the crockpot. Having dinner waiting for me when I get home after a long day couldn’t get any better. And this recipe is delicious! Reminds me a lot of Italian Sausage and Peppers. For Christmas, Joe got me a Groupon to Omaha Power Yoga. I’ve done yoga off and on in the past, but …

Paleo Beer Dinner (Well…the food is Paleo!)

A few weeks ago we celebrated Joe’s birthday. Last year we were living in Texas and went to a 5-course beer dinner at a local brewery to celebrate. It was delicious but definitely not Paleo. This year instead of going out to dinner, I decided to surprise Joe and create a Paleo-inspired 4-course beer dinner at home. I know beer …
