Zucchini and Tomato Soup

Zucchini and Tomato Soup

For those of you who were disappointed that my recipe on Monday wasn’t Paleo, here’s one that is. Last week I posted a recipe for Broccoli and Arugula soup. And when I shared the link on twitter, I received this tweet in reply. For those of you who don’t know what a courgette is, it’s the…

Rhubarb crisp

Rhubarb Crisp

Warning: This recipe is NOT paleo. And it’s NOT gluten-free. I went back and forth about whether or not I should share this recipe with you guys. It’s definitely not paleo. It has flour and refined sugar. But after talking with Jake, I decided to go ahead and upload it anyway. Jake’s mother grows her own rhubarb…

Broccoli and Arugula Soup

Happy Tuesday! Today I’ve got a new recipe for you. Granted it’s not that different from another soup recipe I’ve posted in the past. But still worth sharing. Last night I needed to go grocery shopping but just didn’t have the energy to do it after work. All we had in the fridge was a…

Saturday Night Catch Up (with a recipe)

Hello! So it’s currently 9pm and I’m sitting on my couch. I did the same thing last night. I know, real party animal over here. The problem is for the last three weeks my asthma has been horrible. For those of you new to my blog, I mentioned that my asthma disappeared last January after…

Lentil Soup Recipe

Happy Thursday! I promised you a new soup recipe in Monday’s post, so here it is. This recipe is actually a family recipe. And one with a funny story. My mother used to make this lentil soup pretty regularly when I was a kid. And I hated it. Absolutely hated it. Which is why when…

paleo fried okra

Paleo Fried Okra

A little over a week ago I noticed okra on mega sale at Whole Foods. Jake and I are huge fans of this Crockpot Okra Beef Stew recipe so I bought a bunch…and then promptly forgot about them in the back of our fridge. Last night I pulled them out and decided they either needed…

WIAW: Meal Ideas and a Crockpot Recipe

Hello! I’ve missed you. Have you missed me? These past couple of weeks I’ve been getting into the groove of my new job (and the commute). Most nights by the time I finally get home I’ve had enough energy to throw some food together, shower, and get straight into bed with a book. To be…

Spicy “Peanut” Cabbage Salad

A couple of months ago I asked what sort of recipes you liked reading on my blog. I had quite a few requests for crockpot recipes (still working on that one) but I also had a request for more light and easy salad ideas. So here you go. Spicy “Peanut” Cabbage Salad Salad Ingredients: 1/2…

how to make freezable paleo chili

Emergency Meals: Freezable Paleo Chili

When people tell me that they don’t have time to cook a real meal, I normally suggest stir-fry. A pound of meat (ground beef, turkey, cubed chicken) plus vegetables (fresh or frozen) plus spices (onion powder, garlic powder, chili pepper, etc) equals a delicious meal in under 20 minutes. The options are endless, it’s easy…

Don’t Like Vegetables? Roast Them!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Today I wanted to talk about vegetables. I know what you’re thinking, “But you eat paleo. Don’t you just stuff yourself with meat?” False. I eat a ton of vegetables. And if I’m following my own advice correctly, I’m eating them at all three meals. In fact, I might even…
