Sautéed Spinach and Peppers w/Garlic & Shallots

For some odd reason, I’ve been in the mood for sautéed spinach lately.  I honestly have no idea where that craving came from!  Maybe because I love spinach on a fresh salad… Who knows!  I noticed I had some bell peppers in my refrigerator last night along with some spinach and figured I’d try my…

Tuna Salad w/Mustard Vinaigrette

This is one of the most flavorful and healthy lunches I’ve made recently.  I cannot express in words how yummy this meal is!  Bonus… it’s also quick and easy to make! I typically use Albacore canned tuna from Costco but you can get at any grocery store.  I like Albacore best because it’s not as…

New Year Resolutions

Here we are… year 2018.  Where did 2017 go?  I swear I blinked and the entire year went by.  Let’s talk about New Year resolutions. Do you have one yet?  Are you going to make one?  I’m sure we’ve all had some experience with making a “New Year resolution” before.  Maybe we’ve failed one, maybe…

Paleo/Whole30 Grilled Balsamic Onion Burgers

To quote my husband tonight when he took a bite of these burgers, “Oh… Home Run Baby!”  These burgers were BEYOND the best burgers I’ve ever made.  They were definitely a home run… not only with my husband and myself but our daughter as well!  Our two-year-old ate a burger and a half herself. I’ve…

Whole30 Mustard Roasted White Sweet Potatoes

These are one of my favorite side dishes for dinner and they are simple and full of flavor!  It’s as simple as chopping up some sweet potatoes, throwing the marinade on the potatoes and popping them in the oven. These potatoes are paleo and also *bonus* they’re Whole30 compliant!!  WOO WOO! Personally, I love white…

Another Whole30…

That’s right, my husband and I are doing the January Whole30!  We’ve decided that doing it twice a year really will be good to help us keep our eating habits in line. Holy guacamole, did we have some fun this Christmas!  The pictures above are from the few weeks leading up to Christmas and on…

Paleo Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Almond Butter Bites

Yep… the title alone states how delicious these little bites are!  I made these for my family for Christmas this year and they tasted just like a more rich version of Reese peanut butter cups! My family absolutely loved them! The best part… they’re Paleo and have NO added sugar!  The sea salt on top…

2017 Wrap Up

I cannot believe it is December 14th already.  Where did the 2017 year go?  I feel like I say every single year that the year went by quickly but this year has felt a little like an anomaly for me.  It went by super quick.  It was a jam packed year… From tax season, to…

Half Marathon

Wow, I never actually thought I’d get to a spot in my life where I could write that as a title!  I have actually signed up for my very first half marathon!  I am going to run 13.1 miles in February at the Publix Half Marathon in Melbourne Florida.  That feels not only amazing to…

Paleo Cornbread Muffins

What chili recipe would be complete without cornbread?  Another one of my favorite  comfort foods.  I used to make corn bread just so I could smother it in butter and honey and eat it warm!  I’m salivating even thinking about it!  Well, now that I’m Paleo, I needed to find a “paleo compliant” cornbread recipe….
