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...Read More
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 Thanksgiving themed tapas menu including mini pumpkin pies, turkey and mashed potato sliders, fried green beans, potato skins, pumpkin muffins, pecan pie martinis, fried macaroni and cheese and sausage stuffing balls (definitely not Paleo)...Read More
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 for the past two weeks (and no I’m not pregnant!). I have truly struggled to maintain a healthy Paleo diet. I have resorted to eating gluten-free toast, rice and even non gluten-free bread. At this point if I can stomach it, I’m eating it...Read More
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 is Paleo-friendly and in my opinion just as tasty, if not better. Canned coconut milk and honey create a rich base for any flavor of ice cream you want to make. We had some frozen mangoes so I decided to puree them up and add them to the base to create this delicious mango concoction...Read More
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 Nebraska has freezing temperatures, I might not be complaining so much. We had a blast in K.C. It was great seeing my family and just taking some time to relax...Read More
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 Kansas City, Missouri to meet my family for a little vacation this weekend. Also going to the Chiefs vs. Texans football game which should be fun! I’ve never tailgated at a pro football game before and I’m determined to have some tasty Paleo eats...Read More
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 lot of time to create new recipes.
I have still been cooking and absolutely love cooking in my new kitchen...Read More
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 ready to have our own house and some sort of routine started here in Austin. It’s going to be like Christmas morning unpacking since I haven’t seen our belongings in so long. I can’t wait to uncover all of my kitchen and cooking goodies...Read More
My wonderful husband came up with this recipe and made it for my birthday a few weeks back. Instead of going out to dinner, I had asked him to cook me something homemade, delicious and Paleo! This is what he came up with. He also cooked up Nom Nom Paleo’s Swiss Chard with Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts (sooo yummy). This dish was so colorful and flavorful. The crispy and salty prosciutto pairs so well with the chicken and the sweet mango glaze. The side of greens rounded out the meal. It definitely added a unique side dish that we haven’t had before...Read More
It’s been quite a while since I last wrote. Life has definitely been on the crazy side. We are in the process of buying a house (hoping to close in three weeks!). And just moved from our temporary furnished rental into our friend’s house for the next couple weeks (thank you guys!). And I also started my new job as the Marketing Coordinator for Fugro Consultants last week. Phew!
Well I’ve had this post planned for quite a while. It’s a look into what I eat on a daily basis as someone on the Paleo Diet. I decided to choose a day that Joe and I were traveling to San Antonio...Read More
