    Sunshine sauce is out of this world. I have it in pad thai with spaghetti squash.

    Is it weird that I love it when grocery lists / the grocery carts of others at the store are filled with whole, real foods?? (Or at least mostly so, with a few treats here and there … haha. We all have our little indulgences.) It just makes me so happy to know that they’re treating their bodies well. :)
    Ps. I love that broccoli is on there twice. Mainly because (1) I love broccoli and (2) I’m apt to make repetitions on my grocery lists too. Broccoli is important — tonnes of calcium. Can’t forget it!

    We went to a wedding last night in which the bride and groom jumped in the pool! Crazy!

    I am confused. I thought you weren’t actually going Paleo.

    I went to a big family party and had a blast! I also bought some white truffle oil – I’ve seen you mention truffle oil on your blog. I was surprised at the strong taste. I know you put it on salads. Do you also cook with it?

    Sometimes. I more often use it cold on salads.

    I’m doing my own 2 week paleo challenge starting tomorrow too! I also spent my day meal planning, shopping, and food prepping. I whipped up a butternut squash and bison chili to kick it off! Delish.

    I know you’ve said you’re not following a Paleo diet but it might confuse come of your readers – or send them mixed messages if you’re doing the Paleo Challenge now. I guess it doesn’t really matter since you have every right to eat whatever you want :) … but just saying that it does seem somewhat confusing.
    Anyway – have fun with it!

    Those meals all sound so good – especially that hash. Anything with sweet potato and sausage is bound to be delicious!

    This weekend I celebrated Homecoming! We lost though. :P

    My husband and I had the sweet potato/spinach/sausage skillet for dinner just the other day and we both loved it! I hope you enjoy if you haven’t already tried it.

    Yum, looking forward to some yummy paleo recipes this week! This weekend I got to do yoga outside, such a neat experience. And then tons of “stuff” around the ol’ homestead. Happy Monday!
